Exploring the PNW

I am always encouraging the couples that I work with to try new locations and I’m always up for suggestions! Though I’m from the PNW, I have to admit, I’ve seen a fair chunk of it because of my career! Thank you entrepreneurship! Growing up I always used to love to get in the car with my mom and explore. One of our favorite places to visit was snoqualmie pass! Snow is just so peaceful. Especially on a sunny morning. The air is crisp, but the warmth from the sun is soothing. So it was the perfect and peaceful location for this snowy engagement session.

A short drive from the City

Hanna and Brett were originally planning to do their engagement session for West Seattle. Though a view of the puget sound would have been beautiful, I’m so glad they decided to change their minds at the last minute and and planned for a snowy engagement session at Gold Creek Pond! Gold Creek Pond is just under an hour drive from Seattle and a perfect place for a snowy engagement session! With it’s mostly flat terrain, it’s a fairly easy walk around the lake. So you don’t have to hike for a stunning view! Hanna and Brett describe themselves as “outdoorsy”. So this two hour session in freezing temperatures was no sweat for these two…or their sweet dog! Check out their stunning session below!
