High Rock Engagement with Derek and Kyler

As soon as I met with Derek and Kyler they were talking about all the traveling and adventures that they're constantly going on. So naturally when it came to their engagement session we choose an unbelievable vantage point of Mt Rainier. As soon as we saw an opening in the summer wildfire smoke we ran out to Mt Rainier National Park hiked up to High Rock where there is an incredible fire lookout cabin. Just when we got to the top clouds rolled in, but this time they added an extra bit of drama without the rain!

Big Four Ice Caves Engagement with Maneesha and Sri

As soon as Manessha emailed me from Ohio about an engagement session in the Pacific Northwest I knew it had to be an epic location. It's not everyday that someone travels over 2,000 miles to take photos. After hearing about what they wanted I knew we had to go out to the Big Four Ice Caves! I had just been out there for the first time and I knew this easy hike blew me away. I had no idea that something so unique and so gorgeous could exist with only a few mile hike.

Just a warning: it is extremely dangerous to adventure inside of the ice caves. They are known to collapse at any time and without warning. Several people have died while breaking the rules and wandering inside these caves. At no point in the photoshoot did we go inside the actual caves.
