Foggy Alder Lake Engagement Session // Mount Rainier

May 4, 2021

This short session was supposed to take place at an overlook near Mount Rainier, but the morning of we woke up to thick fog and drizzling rain. The weather forced us to shift gears and switch our location to nearby Alder Lake. Beautiful locations certainly are not hard to come by in the Pacific Northwest! Thankfully, I had just driven past Alder Lake the day before and immediately knew I needed to shoot there. Kris and Jon were amazingly flexible and as soon as I mentioned the location switch they were ready to go! We met at the lake and spent the first part of our session along the waterline that was peppered with stumps. After shooting there for a bit we head over to a large sandbar area to run around. Kris brought a bright yellow beanie with her that she handmade, it was so soft. I had such a great time with these two and loved being able to explore Alder Lake a little. I can’t wait to head back one day soon! I would honestly love to shoot here over and over again.
