ANNIVERSARY PORTRAITS IN THE METHOW VALLEY

A couple years ago when I met Emilee and Taylor at Cafe Presse to talk about photographing their wedding, I knew they were awesome people. Since then they've become some of my wife and my favorite people and closest friends. Having clients who become friends is hands down my favorite thing about doing what I do, it feels like such a blessing to get to know so many genuinely great humans.

Earlier this winter the four of us cruised out to the beautiful Methow Valley to spend a couple days in a cozy cabin, sit by the fire, have dance parties, hike around the river with masks on ... you know, the usual. Oh, and we made some photos.

NORTH CASCADES PORTRAIT SESSION

Jasmine and Jason wanted to go explore some new scenery in Washington before they moved away (sadness.) We hopped in the car and headed out on one of my favorite drives in the state - the North Cascades highway towards the Methow Valley. The mossiest of mosses, epic lakes, and some ginormous icicles. I think the great PNW did us proud. Diablo Lake is definitely is a place to go check out if you live in the Pacific Northwest.

SPRING CREEK RANCH WEDDING IN THE METHOW VALLEY

I've been blessed. Lucky. Either, or both, perhaps. Point being, I get to go make photos for amazingly kind, genuine people like Claire and Ted. And sometimes those kind people happen to also brew fantastic beer and get married at Spring Creek Ranch in Winthrop, one of my favorite spots in the state. So, yeah, lucky.
