        Conner and Natalie are going to get married next December at Suncadia. Since they are are gearing up for a snowy nuptials, they decided it would be best to do their engagements in the snow as well. So, we piled into the car and headed up to Snoqualmie Pass, hoping to get above the rain of the city and into the white powder.

        This is exactly what you hope to see when crossing the pass, lots of the white fluffy. That said, we were having a really hard time finding spots that we could actually photograph. It was a Sunday afternoon, so it seemed half of Seattle had the same idea to get up there.

        Eventually, we found the Crystal Springs Sno Park. It was a little bit past the pass, but that extra 5 miles made all the difference. We parked and headed out into the snow, which was definitely just a little bit deeper than we had anticipated.

        Aren’t these two great together. They’re so natural and it was a blast to spend the afternoon making jokes and telling stories.

        For this photo, I was actually standing in the middle of a river. I was really glad to have worn waterproof boots to the shoot (though Erika was even more proud to be wearing her mukluks).

        We then found another spot to make images and I’m still astounded by the light and beauty. We laughed because during this shoot, dozens of cars or snowmobiles passed by, just yards away, but you make images where the light is. I loved that they brought the Flexible Flyer sled, a beautiful blanket and even a bottle of champagne. I’d say that combination is always a recipe for a successful trip to the mountains.

        Honestly, I’m out of words. These two just are so natural together, it makes my job so easy.

        Once we were done with the serious photos, it was time to pop the bubbly!
