My absolute favorite state to shoot in, so far anyway, is Washington State. If all you’ve ever seen of it was from the movie Twilight, then you’ve got the right idea because it’s just as dreamy as that in real life: dark, lush forests, lakes, mountains and foggy goodness. It’s a moody photographer’s dream location, I so wish I could shoot there every day. Alas (sort of?), I live in the beautiful city of Chicago! I do love it here. But the Pacific Northwest has a huge piece of my heart!
Now meet Dallas & Stephanie. Amazing backdrop? Check. Stunning couple? Check. Everything was perfect! Except the temperatures lol. Washington State in March? CHI-LLY! But what am I complaining about? I was wearing clothes! They (Stephanie especially) were total champs, even braving the rain. As a side note: if it rains on your wedding day or during your session, don’t give up on it! Embrace it!
Check out their bridal session below. Full gallery here.
