Aaah, you guys! This session was really just the best (aren’t they all :))! My husband and I woke at 5 am and hit the road for Leavenworth to meet with Heather and Joe, who were celebrating their one year wedding anniversary. It was such an exciting time for all of us, and there may have been a little added fun with Oktoberfest going on.
We tucked into a little riverside park just behind the main streets in town. From the salmon moving up river to the still waters and fall colors, we embraced one side of the park to the next and shot in every little spot we could. It was all so beautiful! Never having professional photos taken before, we laughed and walked and (thankfully I didn’t trip over anything this time!) worked our way out of town as they warmed up in front of my camera. Next stop was along Icicle River, which is an incredible Class 5 river with some sweet hiking trails alongside it. I typically visit Leavenworth a few times a year just because I love it all so much!
Our last stop was at one of my favorite lakes as the sun was setting. Heather brought a fantastic styled picnic set up that I think their puppy, Henry, enjoyed the most! It has been really hard to sort through these photos, because I really love them all! So in my element with these! Heather and Joe are just so sweet, you can’t help but love them. By the time we were finishing our shoot, we hugged, and left feeling like good friends rather than having just met that day. I’m most thankful for people like that in my life and work.
Thanks Heather, Joe, and Henry, it was a blast spending the day with you!!
