Mt. Rainier Engagement Photos

Jul

23

Nick & Ercia were on a tight timeline to get their Mt. Rainier Engagement Photos done for their wedding invitations to go out ASAP for a September wedding! They knew they wanted to go to a place they had scoped out towards Lonesome Lake on Mt. Rainier.

After getting to know each other at Anthem Coffee in Puyallup and booking their wedding date, we scheduled their engagement photos for the very next day! I met them part way then hopped in their truck for the bumpy (4 wheel only) drive to the look out.

I can’t believe I’ve been a photographer in the Pacific Northwest for nearly four years and this was my first time doing Mt. Rainier Engagement Photos! I’m definitely looking to go out that way more often.

Rosco (their pup) was a champ posing for photos and exploring near by through most of the shoot. The bugs were crazy but we were able to have fun through the swarm! Clouds covered the mountain for the first hour but had cleared up by the time we got to our second location. We were so happy to have it for our blue hour shots!

At the end of the evening Nick and Ercia shared a sandwich and broke out some beers. We had an awesome session and found the most stunning views.

Enjoy these sweet Mt. Rainier Engagement Photos and maybe consider taking more of an adventure into the PNW for your portraits, too! The travel fee is minimal and the experience alone is worth the drive.

Stay tuned for Nick & Ercia’s late September wedding. It’s going to be a backyard wedding on a private dock overlooking the lake. I can’t wait! Fingers crossed we get just as lucky near sunset early fall.

PSA: Due to the terrain of Mt. Rainier, it often looks as if people are in more danger than they are. Nick & Ercia were always safe and never posing near an actual drop off! ♥

      Thank you! I definitely need to do some location scouting for non 4-wheel vehicles around this area. So pretty.

    They look fun, natural, and best of all not “posed”. Cheers!

Wedding Season 2021 has been an odd one. It’s been “busy” in a way I can’t describe.

Robyn & Justin’s Kerry Park Engagement Photos were a creative take on a classic Seattle location. I think this was the first time The Studio photographed engagement photos at Kerry Park where Clynn came to document side angles. Having his input around opened up space for me to view the park with fresh eyes. Robyn […]
