This sweet engagement session, set in the hills of Rattlesnake Ridge in North Bend, Washington, is what happens when two people fall in love with the gorgeous PNW landscape! These two and their photographer came from far and wide to shoot their engagement photos in Washington and while we might be biased, we’re willing to bet they’ll pretty happy with the gorgeous results! It’s hard to beat how stunning the Washington mountains can be, but this gorgeous couple manages to do just that.
From the photographer, “I really just can’t get enough of the breathtaking views of this place. The bride-to-be lives in Texas, her fiancé, lives in D.C. and I live in Utah. Because someone was going to have to travel regardless, we decided a destination engagement session would be really fun. They chose Seattle and what a great choice it was! We ventured to Rattlesnake Ridge in the gorgeous Cascade Mountain Range just south of North Bend, Washington.
I began their engagement session down by the lake, which was glowing from the setting sun. We then started the hike up to the ridge, which we were definitely not properly prepared for! Lucy had been told that it was an easy walk up. While I had brought sneakers to hike in, [the couple] had only the clothes they were wearing for their photos! It was a long and tiring hike up, but they were really good sports about it. The majestic view we were greeted with at the top made every tiring step worth it! We didn’t have long before the sun completely set, but we soaked up every minute of light that we could.”
