Looking for a good way to spend a hot afternoon in Big Bear, California? Let me show you…

Tori and Drew’s Big Bear Couple’s Session was so much fun. We met up in the middle of the afternoon on a hot summer’s day. Big Bear is always beautiful, no matter the season. After shooting some photos in the sun, Tori and Drew were eager to jump into the cool water. We got some amazing shots and I was able to use my creativity as these two cuties splashed around.
