Mount Rainier Engagement

Engagement

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!

How did you meet?

Her Answer: The first time we actually hung out was when we went miniature golfing with friends. He kept hitting my golf ball to try to get me to talk to him (I’m a rather shy/quiet person). We had run into each other a few times before then, but never really interacted.

How did he/she propose? What was his/her reaction?

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!
