Pacific Northwest Waterfall Engagement Session in Olympic National Park
Waterfalls are a major part of the PNW and the Olympic National Park! Along with the beautiful redwoods that you see all over! Also known for the drizzly weather! This session makes it all look so beautiful! A little bit like the famous Notebook scene! I simply love this adventurous Waterfall Engagement Session!
How did you meet, and your proposal story?
2015 was a summer of music festivals! My older brother Sam had told Daniel and me (separately we didn’t know each other yet) about a huge festival in Toronto called VELD. Sam and Daniel and some of their friends decided to make the trip. I also planned to go to the festival with my friends, separately from Sam, as only being 16 months apart in age, and a girl, I made my own plans separate from my brother since birth.
Fate had plans that weekend:
As there was a huge storm and the festival was closed down for safety. Both of our groups decided to go back to the boy’s hotel to get out of the rain. All of us were soaked, so I decided to grab a pair of sweatpants. Guess who the sweatpants belonged to..that’s right…Daniel.
We didn’t speak very much at our first meeting, but we happened to meet up again at a bus station about a month later. We already were friends on Facebook (hello 2015) and I decided that I would like to get to know Daniel a little better- so I messaged him. It took some convincing, but we had our first date going to a movie using his SCENE points. That is when our story began!
Four years, 2 cats and a greyhound dog, and a cross-country move to Seattle later, Daniel and I are excited to celebrate our marriage with our closest friends and family.
For the engagement:
We were in Arizona with some friends for a weekend and were doing the typical sightseeing in Sedona, and on the way back to Phoenix we wanted to make sure to stop at a dark sky location. We found the perfect spot away from cities and people and cars and we were all looking at the amazing sky, the milk way, and the full moon shining bright. That is when Daniel got down on one knee and said:
“I was going to say some cheesy stuff about the moon and the stars, like how you letting me achieve my goals and following me across North America are you following me to the moon and I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives chasing the stars.”
And of course, I said yes!!
What were your favorite moments from your engagement session?
My favorite moments from the session were being able to experience the beauty that the PNW has to offer. Being able to act goofy with Daniel and just living in the moment.
What stood out the most?
The sheer beauty of the Olympic National forest. I was blown away by the overgrowth forests, the waterfall, and the beautiful crescent lake. And of course, the comfort, ease, and guidance Ashley were able to give us, since this wasn’t something we did every day!
