I will never forget the time I flew across the country within 24 hours to capture one of the sweetest engagement sessions of my entire career!! Emma & Andrew are some of the warmest and kindest people I have ever met, and their photos say it all!
Emma reached out to me in hopes that I could fly out to Washington state and document her new home after moving across the country!! OF COURSE, I said yes and the rest is history! They picked me up from the airport, and we headed straight to Mount Rainier National Park with our energy drinks in hand haha!! After about two hours of driving, we finally got to the park’s gates with NO IDEA that we needed chains to drive up the mountain. SO, we made a quick stop back at a local shop to pick up tire chains to not even use them once oops.
While we were at the park, God blessed us with the best weather for any shoot! The sun was so bright and warm that we decided to hike up the snow for these beautiful shots. However, when we got to the top of the mountain, we almost froze into ice cubes. I had to offer up my pajama pants to keep Emma warm while changing into her second outfit (still one of the funniest memories from any shoot to this day)!!
Afterward, we took some photos at the iconic entrance sign and celebrated with champagne (DUH)!!
The next day, we spent time traveling to Leavenworth and exploring Washington!! I couldn’t resist capturing even more of these two while we were out. So, when we visited Emma’s favorite lake, I took out my camera and shot some of my favorite photos, EVER!! We just hung out, hiked, chatted, and Emma and I swam in the glacier lake to end such an amazing trip!!
