An Adventure Engagement Session
If you follow me on social media, you have probably read on my posts how much I love engagement sessions! Especially when the couple chooses a meaningful location that sets perfect scenarios to tell their love story. Yes, I am talking about adventure engagement sessions!
As a love storyteller and couples photographer, I always encourage my couples to pick a location that brings out something special about them. Whether it’s their favorite place to go, where they proposed, where they go to relax, or for those a little more adventurous (like Eileen & Samuel) who enjoy outdoor activities, you can use this as an opportunity to explore the area.
Eileen and Samuel, a couple that loves hiking
When I talked to them on the phone, I learned they are an active couple from Brazil that recently moved to Seattle within the last couple of years. Eileen told me how much they’re into hiking and shared with me some locations in the Washington area.
We ended up choosing Franklin falls (It’s just an hour drive from Seattle) since it was a closer place for us to manage. I felt so happy and excited for them because this adventure session would allow them to continue discovering more about the place where they’re starting this new life together.
The dreamy and romantic setting at Franklin Falls
The adventure engagement session day arrived (back in May 2021) It was an overcast rainy day, but that only managed to give the couple a dreamy setting with a more dramatic vibe. It was a perfect scenario to capture just how adventurous, affectionate and passionate about each other they are.
There was no doubt this couple was all up for it! There were a lot of fallen trees and we scaled the rocks -thank you Samuel for being so supportive in helping us get down- They even went out onto the logs where the water was rushing!
