North Cascades National Park Adventure Elopement

North Cascades National Park Adventure Elopement

Finding the perfect Washington state national park to elope in was at top of mind when Stan and Michele reached out to me about photographing their destination elopement. Hailing from Wisconsin, these two were in search of mountains and water, and there is no better place to find the two than the North Cascades National Park. With 300 glaciers, over 500 alpine lakes, and some of the most rugged peaks in the United States, the North Cascades is jaw-dropping to say the least.

Let me begin by saying they are both extraordinary people. I gathered that they were kind and fun people from the short time we had together during their engagement session and communications leading up to their wedding, but it was their wedding guests that tipped me off on how amazing these two really are.
