Mt. Rainier Elopement Session
If you’re contemplating on getting married in the winter, getting epic photos in the snow is a freaking must! These two flew from Florida to Las Vegas to get married and then headed my way to the beautiful Pacific Northwest to have a snowy Mt. Rainier National Park winter elopement session! The best thing about doing an elopement session is you get to include as much of your elopement as you want. They wanted their family present in Vegas but saved some of the more intimate parts of their elopement experience (like reading their vows) for when they arrived in the PNW. So naturally having their elopement session at Mt. Rainier was a no brainier.
I watched the forecast all week leading up to our adventure and when I saw it was planning to snow, I was even more excited!!! We met up in Ashford, WA and followed each other into the park starting at the base where it was just a little drizzly and by the end of the day we were up in the snow peaked mountains.
R + R were a freaking blast to hang out with and we basically laughed the entire time. It was a pretty special session considering R had never seen snow before, so of course he had to make a few snowballs ;) We came across some deer, a fox and a few raccoons and were met with the fog, making for a very *game of thrones* vibe. When I mentioned GOT to them, of course they told me they were fans. I mean, check out her crown & her 2 piece sparkle dress by Azazie. Thank you R +R for choosing me to bring your elopement dreams to life and making freaking magic with me up at Rainier. This session was a freaking dream! *all the heart eyes*
