When Katherine and I first met over coffee one afternoon, we ended up talking for well over two hours, pulling ourselves away with the promise to meet again. It was undeniably one of those moments when you hope to connect with a client and it couldn’t have turned out better if you’d tried. My husband teamed up with me for the second meeting where we met Dave, then again for the hike to Franklin Falls for their engagements pictures. The morning started off with a little bit of rain, fog, and cool temps that eventually gave away to warm and blue skies. It was the perfect change of weather for the day.
We talked and hike along the trail, occasionally stopping at a pretty spot or at good light and even tried to convince Dave to get in the water near the falls. We didn’t win that one, but it was ok. I was so excited for this session and how beautiful our surroundings were. By the time we made it back to our final shooting location, I just had to call it quits or I would’ve kept photographing them all day! It was just so good and so much fun.
Katherine and Dave are the best of friends and the cutest couple. Their story is so sweet and genuine, and even realized we could’ve been at the same place at the same time with Katherine’s old job and never have realized it. I love to think of possible moments like that, only to come around to connecting sometime later. Much like the two of them. Two people who know exactly who they are and exactly what they want, knowing they have it when they’re hand in hand is modern day romance at its finest. Just being sure. You really get that when you’re with them.
I am so excited for their Mount Rainier wedding later this summer as they exchange vows and share it with only those closest to them. Congratulations Katherine and Dave, thank you so much for having me!
