Riley & Thelben
“May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.”
Riley and Thelben’s Rattlesnake Ledge engagement photos were perfect for a woman who is a traveling doctor in Alaska and a guy who works for the Seahawks. It’s the perfect mix of outdoors, laughter, northwest beauty and joy. I really enjoy hiking sessions not just because it’s an excuse for me to go hiking in the middle of the week (though that is a plus), but it’s a great time to better get to know a couple and see how well they love each other. It was so great to be a part of these two’s inside jokes and to see the way they make each other light up.
I am always blown away by this incredible view. Seriously, how is it possible to have a spot with this perfect view of the Cascades and be so accessible. I guess that’s why it is so busy on weekends, but at 2 on a Thursday, it’s just perfect.
Thelben’s dress was just too awesome. Riley looked pretty good in that velvet suit too.
Thanks again to Riley and Thelben for a sweaty climb up to Rattlesnake Ledge. I’m so excited for their celebration in July!!!
