Engagement Sessions Don't Have to be Boring, Just Add Some Adventure!
Engagement sessions are one of my favorite things to capture. These images are what will be telling your together story. It's your first time showing up, declaring to the world your love for each other. I feel like these sessions should showcase you as a couple, so it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to use the local park if what you really love to do is hike, explore, adventure! The PNW is the best outdoor playground around, I mean how lucky are we to have the beach, mountains, waterfalls, desert at our fingertips?!! I am an avid outdoors woman and I am still amazed at all of the amazing places, and I swear my bucket list just keeps getting longer the more I adventure!
The most popular engagement season (the time period where people pop the big question) is from November through February. However, summertime is a super close second, which makes sense if you factor in that most couples are engaged for eleven months. And with the Pacific Northwests versatility in locations, you are bound to have the engagement session of your dreams-no matter the time of year!
My couples safety, comfort and fun are my top priorities. It's okay if you are not super experienced in the outdoors-I got you! At our consult, we pick a location that is perfect for you and talk about what is needed for that location...proper footwear, bug spray, potty supplies, etc. We discuss the trail and if needed download the map prior. I love to use GAIA app for my hiking trails! I always pack a first-aid kit, flint, pocket knife, headlamp, emergency blanket, backpack stove, mugs, tea/coffee/cocoa, snacks for everyone, extra water or my purifier, blankets, and hand warmers or gloves for those cold weather shoots to ensure that we are good to go!
