This couple’s session in Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest was PURE MAGIC. Lucas & Laura had just come from 6 days mountaineering on Mt. Baker, and the fact that they were up for this photo adventure just goes to show what awesome people they are!
Each year, Lucas & Laura go mountaineering on Labor Day weekend. And last year, I got to hang out with them at Mount Rainier National Park right before they summited that mountain. They’ve officially proclaimed me as their PNW photographer, and I’m thrilled with that title! They’re seriously some of the nicest people, and it’s been a JOY to work with them these past two years.
This was my first time in the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, but it definitely won’t be my last. The beauty of the mountains is just about un-match by anything I’ve seen before. (And fun fact…we were so close to the Canadian border that my phone actually sent me a text welcoming me to Canada!) While the weather didn’t exactly give us the golden sunlight we were hoping for, the cloud cover made for some really beautiful light and interesting clouds.

Lucas & Laura, thank you for trusting me, once again, to capture these beautiful memories for you. I’m so excited to see where our next photo adventure takes us!!
