Hurricane Ridge and love go together so well.
Missi and Dan are one of my favorite couples ever. They aren’t afraid to be playful and silly and they are completely, crazy, head over heels in love with each other. Even in June there was still some snow up at Hurricane Ridge and just happened to be a very cold, rainy, and windy day. But they love those mountains and wanted brave it no matter what!
It was a decently warm day in Port Angeles but there was also a consistent drizzle and some wind up at the top. That is one of the best things though about having a big strong man around, they keep ya warm! That and a big freaking blanket. I just happened to find an old Pendleton blanket at a vintage shop for I shit you not, $8!
What a find! It was the perfect prop for the session. Not only because it kept them from shivering, but the bright colors were a perfect POP against the blue cloudy skies. They were pretty damn cute too cuddling together. Honestly they looked pretty damn warm after that! LOL!
Missi is one of those rare beauties. Her hair is perfectly, and naturally golden and it compliments her big smile. She has the biggest heart you could possibly imagine but at the same time, looks like a freaking Victoria’s Secret Model. It is even a joke among Dan and his friends. How he managed to snag a girl like that was a not only a slam dunk but incredibly lucky. But the thing is that she feels exactly the same way.
But let’s not stop here, let’s go on this little adventure together..
What’s so crazy is that a month after I took these photos this spot was forever changed by a strong storm where trees fell down and you can hardly see the stream anymore.
Is anyone else obsessed with Missi’s little pirate booties? Seriously, I want a pair for myself!
Seriously, how freaking adorable are they!? Life is all about the cuddles and keeping each other warm.
Give me a minute while I swoon over this. That blanket just POPS against the cloudy mountains. Thank you Pendleton and your amazing blankets! It was because of the session that I became obsessed with brand. I now own like 3 blankets from them myself!
A quick change of clothes and different boots! Hunter boots were ALL THE RAGE in 2010! I tried getting a pair for myself, but sadly could get them over my big dancer calves. But they were utterly adorable on Missi. And perfect timing too, because it started to rain just as they changed!
Livin’ in the Pacific Northwest, Hunter Boots are always a must. Missi’s though were the perfect shade of blue to go along with the stunning rustic background. Again, I just love how playful these two were. I didn’t even have to tell Dan to pick her up! But dang, they do it so well don’t they??
If you look closely, you can see the rain coming down but we kept on going and improvised using the blanket as shelter.
This is the only time I have ever actually used the tunnels in my photo sessions. It’s usually just too dangerous to do this as cars come flying down and up the road. But we lucked out in it being super quiet that day. There wasn’t even anyone up at the top! They are just a lucky could I guess!
