Andrea + Dave: Engaged {Rattlesnake Ridge- North Bend, WA}

Filed in: Engagement

I love an amazing adventure- but to have clients who ALSO love an adventure?! DOUBLE AMAZING!! Earlier this year, I gave a portrait session away on Facebook and Andrea won. I later met with her and Dave to get to know them and talk about possible shoot ideas. We met over coffee and talked about their story of how they met at their job, their ridiculously cute pug, hilarious stories about growing up, game nights, and outdoor adventures. I couldn’t have been more happy that such an incredible couple had seen that contest and won. They knew they wanted a memorable outdoor shoot and decided that we were going to go BIG.  At the time of our meeting, they weren’t engaged. But with truly awesome timing, Dave proposed to Andrea the day before our photo shoot. The following afternoon, we drove up to the mountains, and Andrea, Dave, Sarah (a friend of their’s AND a former bride of mine!), and I spent the afternoon hiking the Rattlesnake Ridge Trail (carrying garment bags, shoes, and ample amounts of hairspray, mind you.).  The sun was shining, and with that sparkly diamond on her finger, it was a beautiful day.
