Melissa & Zach - Mountain Engagement

Lake Wenatchee has been on my list of places to shoot for quite a while now. When I got my very first camera, an early photographer mentor of mine brought me over there during October to photograph some portraits and the fall colors. It's surreal returning at the same time 6 years later.

But before I go any further I need to give a huge shout out to Melissa and Zach. They were originally planning to drive 8 hours to come shoot with me. Lake Wenatchee ends up being about halfway between us though and I knew that would be an amazing place to do their engagement session. So we decided to meet there.

Despite the bitter cold winds it was excellent weather and we essentially had the entire location to ourselves the majority of the time. Zach and Melissa brought their dogs (YES!!!) and I was able to bring my dog Piper as well. It was quite the puppy fest and I wish every session could have dogs. They have such a cute little family and it was so fun taking their photos. I can't wait to shoot their wedding next summer!
