Oh friends! We are heading to Rattlesnake Lake for Alexis & Jared’s engagement session and I could not be more excited! Rattlesnake Lake is one of my favorite little spots out in the central Cascades. It’s super accessible, has a variety of spots to shoot in and of course, is drop dead gorgeous. Rattlesnake Lake is know for it’s hike up the ridge. While being super popular, the trail has actually been closed for the majority of 2020, because social distancing cannot be maintained while on this hike. On the weekends you are LUCKY if you find parking within the park. That’s how packed it can be, hence why we shoot on week days 😉
Both Alexis and Jared are from Washington but they actually met while training for the FAA (so badass, right!?). After being delayed for months due to COVID (like most things in 2020) they will both be home this year and ready to tie the knot in 2022. I loved how easy going, down to earth and hilarious these two were. They’re chemistry is joyful and playful with the right dash of romance. Alexis is sassy and sarcastic and while Jared can definitely take a hit, you can tell her happiness is his number one priority.
We wandered around Rattlesnake Lake, popped some champagne and they even climbed the Notebook Tree while getting soaked up to their waists! TALK ABOUT EPIC! The sun was perfectly setting right into the mountain side, creating this super dreamy effect. Trust me, you’ll want to scroll all the way down to the bottom!
Perfect weather, amazing couple. It was the best. I cannot wait to document Alexis and Jared’s wedding next summer, but for now, enjoy this sun-drenched engagement session at Rattlesnake Lake.
