Welcome to the blog! I’m a small-town Florida girl and Army wife relocated to the Seattle Suburbs, documenting love from one coast to the other. I live for a good PNW mountain breeze, sweat pants, and local eats. Let's be friends!

Snowy Mount Rainier Engagement | Olympia Wedding Photographer

Chelsie and John are an absolutely dreamy couple. Chelsie moved to Olympia for a job while John stayed behind in Reno. Despite the long distance, their feelings grew stronger for each other with each passing day and John decided to pop the question oceanside in Westport, Washington. With their commitment, their love for Washington took on new meaning and they decided to have their engagement photos captured by the iconic mountain that represents the state where they began their adventure into marriage. We left our houses around 5am to travel to Mt. Rainier and capture the first light as the sun began to rise over the snow filled landscape. Magical is an understatement for how the morning came to be. Chelsie and John will tie the knot at the Twenty Mile House in California next May and I couldn’t be more excited to travel to their destination wedding!



Mount Rainier often gets a lot of glory but the area surrounding the mountain is easily just as beautiful.
