There comes a time in a person’s life where all of the roads traveled lead them to where they are supposed to be. This is where I am. In Chris’s arms, in the middle of a forest, with people watching us take photos, yet we are the only ones there. Chris and I have enjoyed our first year together and with that comes pictures to celebrate where we are in our lives as an engaged couple.
Engagement photos are special in so many ways. They reflect the beginning of two lives together before they are joined in holy matrimony and for that I knew I wanted ours to speak to who we are. Laid back, adventurous, a bit quirky, and (if you can’t tell already) very outdoorsy. I was lucky enough to have stumbled upon Jodi Botke with Giving Tree Photography and was instantly enwrapped in the artistic yet vintage style of her photos.
Rattlesnake Ledge was the perfect place for our pictures. Although we had to hike about 2 miles to get to the top, the sweat, messy hair, and even rain were worth it all once we set eyes on this majestic view.

… And dancing at any given moment!
… And laughing together to keep the fun and joy alive.
… And concentrating. On your happiness and love. And what to eat for dinner?… And why is my earring falling out? … And Chris’s adorable red nose! Love it so much!
… And taking the leap, jump, hop, dosey doe, or ‘dougie’ down the wedding aisle!
Wedding Date TBD. Yes, I know you are dying to see Chris in a nice tux or suit but timing is everything people. And when the time is right you will be the first to know. Until then make sure to check out Rattlesnake Ledge in Washington because it sure is a sight to see!
