I can’t think of a more majestic setting for for a Magician and his Bride-to-Be. In fact, I didn’t think of this location, but I’m so glad to know of it. Here in LA there’s a special hike that leads up to a very special tree.
The story behind the “The Wisdom Tree” is that it was the sole tree left standing on this peak after a fire in 2007. The man who spied it from a helicopter one day brought up an ammo box filled with pencils and notepads for hikers to leave their thoughts and wishes (it’s also known as The Wishing Tree).
For this reason, Jessica and Brian chose this location to commemorate their engagement. After a rigorous hike, we arrive cliffside and began getting some breathtaking shots.
Finally we moved on to the tree itself!
My wish for gorgeous photos came true.
Much like Stonehenge, these aren’t just random rock formations.
Between the stones of these stacks are more letters and wishes for travelers past.
Didn’t even realize at first that one side of the overlook offered a great view of Downtown LA.
We ended the shoot by letting these lovebirds write their own well-wishes for the next journeyman, and hopes for their future.
May your love carry you through for many years to come.
May your marriage be as steadfast and resilient as The Wisdom Tree.
