Calero County Park Engagement Photos

If you are looking for sweeping views of a gorgeous lake, rolling hills and wheat grass – this secluded and beautiful park has a little bit of everything. When we shot there, we particularly enjoyed the beautiful tall trees during golden hour. That coupled with dreamy wheatgrass made for some incredibly elegant and gorgeous engagement photos. This just isn’t a good location for open toed shoes! We learned that the hard way. Those little wheatgrass hurt when you step on them accidentally.
