Kelsey & Gordon’s Sauk Mtn Engagement Session {Snohomish Wedding Photographer}

When I first met Kelsey and Gordon at Starbucks to chat about wedding photography.. I instantly knew that I was going to like these two! They make such an adorable couple. Kelsey asked if shooting their engagement session at Sauk Mountain would be a possibility. I replied that it definitely could be a possibility. Then she showed me photos on her phone from her prior hikes to this spot and told me that was where Gordon popped the question. I then replied to them that we ABSOLUTELY had to do their session there!! Not only is this spot absolutely breathtaking, but it has special meaning to them and I am always up for new adventures for new and unique shooting locations!

So, after a few long months of waiting, the day for their session finally arrived! And, of course, it was one of the hottest days of the year, 85 degrees! Danny and I jumped in the backseat and set off on our journey to the top of the mountain. The 4.2 mile hike was nothing short of amazing (and a little sweaty..but hey, totally worth it!) Danny and I are fairly active people but we haven’t done a ton of hiking… I can tell you that after this adventure.. I only want to more and more hiking!

The entire adventure was so much fun. It was a great opportunity for us to get to know Kelsey and Gordon better before we shoot their wedding next summer. We had tons of laughs along the way, fantastic views of Mt. Rainier and Mt. Baker and everything in between and we even got to see some wildlife! Once we arrived at the top, we cooled off and they changed their clothes and we started shooting.  Let me tell you a little secret about Kelsey – She’s got super powers… because there is no way I would have looked this good after that hike. 😉  We photographed them until the sun dipped below the horizon. And then loaded up and we hiked back down the mountain and made it back to the car just as it got dark!

Thank you guys so much for introducing us to this gorgeous spot! We loved getting to know you both and share in this experience with you!!
