Oh where to begin with this one.
It was such a fun, emotional, creatively fulfilling, and just HAPPY day. Not only for me, but for a dear dear friend of mine, Kate and her man Adam — who pulled off one stunning proposal. I’m so honored to have been a part of this and capture such a milestone for them.

Doesn’t get much better. However, let’s start at the beginning, shall we?
My boyfriend and I had ventured out to Eastern WA a few months ago to do a little hiking and exploring and had stumbled upon some sand dunes. Spending an hour or so there, I knew I had to get back there and shoot. Whether it was with friends, clients, etc. didn’t matter. The fact was they were stunning and I needed to return (plus, I had no idea they even existed in Washington!) However, the desire to go out and shoot here quickly grew a second agenda — a proposal.
A bit before we had set our plan in stone with some lovely girlfriends, I get a phone call from Kate’s boyfriend, Adam wanting to see if he could pull of a proposal out at these sand dunes. UMMM yes, sir, you can certainly do that. He was about to walk into one of the best documented proposals in history…3 photographers with cameras on hand waiting to shoot in one of the most picturesque places. Talk about well planned! We spoke, schemed, and figured out a way to make it happen during our day trip to Frenchman’s Coulee. Here are a few photos from the day prior to the engagement…read on.
