Stanley Idaho Engagement with Sawtooth Mountains Backdrop
No need to travel to the Pacific Northwest when you have beautiful views and weather like this in Idaho! The mood of the low clouds contrasting the green of the trees! Simply beautiful! This Sawtooth Mountains Idaho Engagement is simply stunning! Filled with a bit of adventure, beautiful lake views, and a couple having a blast!
From the photographer:
Kristin and Miles are from San Diego, California. When they reached out to me about shooting their engagements in Stanley, Idaho, I couldn’t be more excited! These two take a road trip from California to Idaho every single year. They’re always raving about Idaho’s beauty and want to move here someday.
They met through mutual friends and have been together since high school for a total of 8 years! When I met up with them, it was like we had known each other forever. They had told me that they decided to have an intimate wedding in August and that these engagements would be the beginning of a new chapter of their relationship.
Being from Idaho, I knew a ton of secret locations that haven’t been explored.
Not many people know about Stanley, Idaho. It only has a population of 63 and is only open during the summer due to the large amounts of snow they get within winter. It’s definitely one of the prettiest places I’ve ever been.
We drove up on a Thursday afternoon only to be met with a spontaneous summer storm, and it was bad. We ended up sleeping in the car and waiting until sunrise. While you can’t see the Sawtooth Mountains in the back, we were greeted with perfect lighting and dense fog throughout the entire session, making Idaho truly feel like the Pacific Northwest.
