Location: Crystal Mountain Resort, Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, Enumclaw, WA

We love doing adventure engagement sessions, and when you combine a fun couple + beautiful weather + Crystal Mountain, you can’t go wrong. I must preface this to say I was about 8 months pregnant during this shoot, and it was a rather warm day…and we did quite a bit of hiking…I probably would not recommend other preggo photographers attempt it, but I survived and felt great afterward (exercise always feels good after the fact!). We took the gondola ride up to the summit and Jason led us down a fairly steep hill to get a specific backdrop of Cascade mountains. The hike back up was strenuous, but the photos were worth it.

Desiree and James will be getting married at the beautiful Thornewood Castle in August of 2017, and we can’t wait to capture their big day!
