Alicia & Chris adventured out to Gold Creek Pond for their engagement session. It is located in the Snoqualmie Pass. Alicia & Chris are from Michigan and live near my parents. So it was no surprise we got along so well and cracked a few Michigander jokes along the way. It was a relaxing session walking and exploring. The warm hues from the sun played perfectly with these two and at the end we got a spectacular warm glow from the sunset.
It seriously was a dream to be apart of this amazing style shoot a year ago, at the Northwest Trek Wildlife Park. Marissa Rick who owns MariRick photography invited me to join the team of photographers along with Rondelhaye photography.

Meet Russ and Anastasia. My dear friends from my college years!
Their story started at the University of Michigan grad student mixer. Anastasia was dancing with a guy, who she felt was a bit pushy. After a few dances, she retreated back to the medical students on the couch and ended up sitting next to Russ. They talked for hours on that couch about their shared (and sheepish) love of the band Tool and her accidental run-in with the seedier side of Athenian nightlife. He ended up walking Anastasia back home and introduced her to the secrets of the undergrad campus, especially the 24/7 library that can be used for critically important bathroom breaks on the way home from the bars. Over the course of summer grilling and several long road trips their friendship grew into love. Russ’s patience and generosity astounded Anastasia, and his optimism and sincerity reflected the Midwestern attitude she come to love since moving from the East Coast; “I knew he was the one for me.”
