Celebrate your authentic love with a STUNNING Mount Rainier engagement or Elopement! Dana and Royce were an absolute pleasure to work with. Expressing their love story through a Mount Rainier engagement was truly the adventure they were looking for! Below are a few questions and answers from their love story questionnaire. Being able to understand who a couple is and how their love story began allows me to capture their love in an authentic, personal way! I love being an elopement photographer because the possibilities are truly endless when creating an experience that best represents YOU! If you are NOT someone who wants to hike or trek to an outdoor location- don’t! Some of my favorite engagement and elopement adventures have been in a city setting. Your wedding experience is all about YOU. If you want to brainstorm on the possibilities available for creating an unforgettable engagement or elopement, reach out to me!

Her Answer: He is a mason, installs pools and teaches economics at a local college part time. I am a social worker with the area agency on aging.
What is your favorite memory when you first started dating?
Her Answer: The first time he told me he loves me… It was our first vacation together and while at Sunday mass with my family and he took my hand and spelled out the words I love you.
How did he/she propose? What was his/her reaction?
Her Response: He asked me to marry him right before going to dinner with my family. It was nice because we were able to celebrate both my birthday and our engagement.
Tell me three things about your fiance?
Her Answer: Royce is one of the hardest working people I know. He has such a strong love and respect for his close family and friends and he is a bit of a nerd.
Tell me 5 places you have been together
Her Answer: We have driven down the coast from Seattle, Washington to San Diego, California. One of our favorite places to go for a weekend getaway is the Adirondack Mountains in New York (we are working on becoming ‘46ers’). We have a lot of great memories in the Finger Lakes region of New York. We’ve driven from Denver, Colorado through Utah and Wyoming, hitting most of the national parks along the way. Maine, Death Valley, riding horses through Sequoia National Park.. we have had so many amazing adventures together!
