I am SO stoked to share this Mount Rainier couple’s session with you all today! Earlier this summer, Laura messaged me on Instagram and ask if I would be willing to travel to Mount Rainier for a couple’s session. The answer was a resounding “YES!”
(Side note: folks, I will travel just about ANYWHERE. If you’ve got an idea or a dream, hit me up and let’s make it happen. Just because I’m based in Oregon doesn’t mean I only photograph here!)
Laura and her husband, Lucas, have an awesome tradition of summiting a new mountain every Labor Day weekend. This year, they chose Mount Rainier! Laura is a photographer herself (check out her Instagram here) and was having a hard time finding someone that fit the light & airy style she wanted. She stumbled on my account, and fell in love. After chatting through timing and location details, we officially had a plan!
The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for their couple’s session. Beautiful blue skies, fluffy white clouds, and golden sunshine. At one point, the clouds rolled in over us completely taking away our views. But it only lasted for a few minutes, and honestly it added to the whole experience! One tip for anyone photographing in the mountains: dress in layers, and wear more layers than you think you’ll need! It can get chilly up there!
Lucas & Laura, thank you for choosing me to photograph you at Mount Rainier! You are a rockstar couple together, and I can’t wait to see what other mountains you summit together!
