Emma and Eric are full of stories, spunk and deep passion for so many different things. This fun filled afternoon up at Mount Baker was such a fun adventure. We drove together in their car that smelt of fresh rosemary sprigs they let dry out on their windshield, scouted their wedding venue at Wandering Waters, heard the stories of how they met, their bowling league, their love for making cider and drinking beer. It was a PERFECT day on the mountain boasting tons of beautiful color and we topped it all off with pizza and beer (and my favorite caesar salad in Whatcom county!) at the North Fork Brewery. Take me back!
Whenever you have the chance to sneak away with some of your best friends for the weekend- you know it’s going to be good! We booked this place months ago in hopes of some fun in the snow, but alas, the PNW had a mind of its’ own- per usual. Instead of snow, though, we hiked around the wilderness and checked out the river from the Horseshoe Bend Trail- one of our favorites! This ADORABLE Airbnb cabin out in Glacier was just the home away from home we needed for a weekend full of games, hot tubbing, tacos and a loootttt of laughter.
We met Belle and John near Picture Lake on a beautiful day and hiked all around the steep paths trying really hard not to get super sweaty ;). It was a crystal clear day and we enjoyed the fantastic views of this beautiful part of the Mount Baker National Forest. These two love to spend their free time in the summer riding their motorcycles, so John rode his motorcycle up and we got to incorporate his bike into this really fun session right on the lake. I can't believe that gorgeous view of Shuksan and the giant grins on these two! Can't wait to celebrate their big day in just a few short weeks!
The ground was covered in snow when we left Bellingham headed up toward the mountains this Sunday afternoon. We weren't totally sure what the weather at Silver Lake would be like, but the sun was out and we knew we had to try! Despite the howling wind this was the most beautiful day for an engagement shoot. Snow topper trees, fantastic light and the most snuggley couple (even if it was so they could stay warm!) <3 Really looking forward to watching them tie the knot.
