Lou Lou & Dave’s Roaring Santa Cruz Adventure

Before they were even engaged, we had the pleasure of photographing Lou Lou and Dave for a vintage tiki wedding inspiration shoot we did last year. Imagine our excitement when they asked us to capture their wedding this spring!

In addition to being the cutest couple ever, they’re in a band together and thought it’d be fun to meld their engagement session with a band photo shoot. Heck yeah! This is how we found ourselves at Roaring Camp Railroads, trundling through the soaring redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains on a 19th-century narrow-gauge steam train while Lou Lou and Dave serenaded us with a guitar and steel banjolele. The train conductor, it turned out, played in old-timey bluegrass bands and took a liking to Lou Lou and Dave. After the official train ride ended, he generously invited them to climb aboard the Sonora Shay #7 as steam spewed around us. How awesome is that?

Afterward, we explored the old-growth trees in adjacent Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park before making our way to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk in hopes of catching the sunset as well as a different kind of ridea rollercoaster, perhaps? Or the Fireball? Little did we know that the boardwalk shuts down shortly after sunset when it’s not summer. Oh well! The sinuous drive back to the East Bay was thrilling enough after a fantastic day in the sun. Here’s a look at the fun we had!santacruzengagement01
