When Mavaney, the model, and I planned this styled elopement, we had snow and ice caves in mind. The Big Four Ice Caves to be specific. Neither of us had visited them, but we both agreed it would be the perfect place to shoot. Nature had other plans, however.
We are spoiled with gorgeous landscapes in Washington — including mountains, beaches, rainforests, and deserts. So many incredible places make decisions, such as where to take engagement photos, difficult, but that’s the best kind of problem to have.
In order to ease your decision making, I’ve compiled a list of the top 17 best locations to take engagement photos in the state of Washington. Enjoy!
Growing up on the East side of Washington meant that trips to the beach were a special, once a year occasion, complete with a six hour drive each way. Now that I live in Tacoma, I'm taking full advantage of the proximity to the Pacific and I'm lucky to have married a West coast native who knows all of Western Washington's best kept secrets!
I met Jill Em through an online photography community and I was thrilled when she accepted my offer to model for an adventure shoot. She and her husband, Chris, had the perfect wardrobe for an elopement styled shoot – the outfits they wore for their own elopement in Hawaii! All that was left to do was choose a location!
