Photography by Benj Haisch

A couple weeks ago, my fiancé and I + our wedding photographer packed into a car crammed with clothes and headed east on I-90. Mission: basically...drive until we found a cool spot, pull over, and take pictures. This first location really captures the beauty that is only a couple hours away from Seattle.. lush trees, calm blue waters, and snow-capped mountains illuminated by the sun. This 3-part series document the spontaneous adventure that was our engagement session. We had so much fun and we loved our photos! There are literally hundreds to choose from so here are just a few. Huge thanks to our talented photographer Benj Haisch, and also to the most amazing makeup artist and one of my best friends, Yeji Kim Sakoda, for making me look pretty. More to come!
