Lara + John: Anniversary {Rattlesnake Lake, WA}

Filed in: Portrait

When Lara asked if we could do something crazy for her shoot, I wanted to high-five her across the internet. Lara and John are avid outdoorsmen- running, biking, hiking (oh, and did I mention that they are also ballroom dancers? Excuse me while I go die.). She mentioned Rattlesnake Lake and the trail up to the ledge and I was all over the idea. If you have ever hiked the rattlesnake trail before, you will know that the view is EXTRAORDINARY. Well, what we weren’t expecting was that on THIS day, there would be no view. As we ascended the trail, it didn’t take long for us to enter a low cloud and then stay in it for the duration of the hike. We reached the ledge and the forest opened up to heaven. Literally. It took my breath away. And Lara and John love each other with such a fierce love, it was a beautiful experience. Thank you Lara and John for the honor of celebrating your first year of marriage together. It was an incredible experience and I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun I had, you make me love my job in a way that I didn’t know was possible. You are exquisite together.
