I was beyond excited when I got the news my friends Petra and Matt decided to choose one another to spend life with. And of course, I was even more excited when Petra asked me to take their engagement photos. I envisioned a snowy white location for these two, so we ventured out to Gold Creek Pond near Stevens Pass. It was perfection. Completely white with snow and beautiful sunlight. I knew this was going to be the perfect way to end my 2016 year, considering this was my very last engagement session of the year.
They were also my first test subjects on a couple of the new techniques I want to use going forward - techniques that allow my couples and I to interact in a way that leads more to an adventure session than your typical "pose here, look there" line of work. And I shall say, it was a complete success and I'm that much more confident going forward using these new techniques.
The love and adoration these two have for each other just radiates through these images. Here's a small sneak peek of one of my favorite engagement sessions of the year.
