Reminiscing on the place we adventured to a year ago as we gear up for Patagonia Round 2 in March. Here are a few photos from this adventure session we did with Megan + Nate in a field just outside El Chalten with the infamous Patagonia skyline towering in the background.
Rich and I went to the South Island of New Zealand this January and wanted to share a few of our favorite places we experienced and share a few tips on how to camper van across this incredible little country!
Brittany + Logan’s elopement at Latourell Falls in Oregon. The waterfalls in the PNW are magical locations to elope.
If anyone knows Hannah + Cole, they know just how perfectly in love with each other they are. It's no often that I meet a couple that still can't stop taking pictures of each other, oogling over how cute they are, and enjoy having their photos taken because that means they get to be close to each other. These two are inseparable in the most perfect way. They are what I want to feel inside, and they wear it all on their sleeve. They are open, intentional, accepting, forgiving, who deeply love and aren't afraid of the consequences.
For our 2 year anniversary, Rich and I decided to head to our favorite country for some "us" time. While everyone else celebrates by going out to dinner, maybe taking a weekend in the mountains or even a nice beach, we choose to spend it walking through blizzards, eating overly salted dehydrated food, getting blisters after long hours on the trail, and sleeping in a hut with 15 other smelly hikers. Talk about romantic. Not everyone's first choice, but why isn't it?
Sometimes, you just need to go to a waterfall in the middle of the week and sit at a lookout until the sun goes down. Spending time with your person is just as important as all the other big things in life. I know I'm usually sharing couples getting married and engaged, but I've found that it's all the little things in-between that matter the most. Silver Falls is one of my favorite places in Oregon, there's this 10 waterfall hike you can do that is pretty incredible. All to say, take the night off, stop watching Netflix, get outside, and spend some real undistracted time with your loved ones, because it's a big deal.
Courtney is 100% babe and spending the afternoon with these two getting completely soaked in the waterfall, sliding around in our mud covered shoes, wiping down my camera every two seconds because it was completely covered in mist, was the best adventure.
What an adventurous shoot this was! Christine and Jason met me in Doi Inthanon National Park near Chiangmai, Thailand for a couple's session while on their first international vacation together. Such an incredible way to remember a trip! We hiked around barefoot, fell in the mud multiple times, got completely soaked head to toe, and were pretty happy about it. There were rainbows everywhere and tourists watching us like we were crazy. At the end of the shoot, I really had no idea if I had gotten any clear shots because the mist from the waterfall saturated my lens every 5 seconds, and there was no avoiding it. This adventure shoot was definitely one of the highlights of my time in Thailand, and I'm so thankful for these two who were literally up for anything and probably came home with a few bruises! So worth it!
