Breanne & David
A story about an Engagement Session on the Olympic Peninsula at Lake Crescent
Olympic Peninsula & Lake Crescent. The perfect spot for outdoorsy couples. I love the Olympic Peninsula. It’s home. Lake Crescent is just a short 20 minute drive from my house and I visit often. So when Breanne and David said that they wanted to have their engagement photos in a pretty outside spot. I knew exactly where to go! Even with knowing the lake so well I still decided to find a few new spot to start.
I saw this cool rock years ago but had totally forgot about it. I knew all I had to find was two adventurous souls. It was a bit tricky getting them up that rock though without getting wet but they managed. If you didn’t know, there is a lot of moss on the Olympic Peninsula. Said moss can make walking on rocks or trees extremely difficult. Thankfully it was only cloudy that day but not raining so things were not that slick and it was okay to sit and get cozy together.
I have been to a lot of National Parks and there are a lot of cool things to see out there. And while I totally recommend people to get the annual park pass, there are quite a few places that don’t require you pay an entrance fee. Lake Crescent on the Olympic Peninsula is one of those places.
All you have to do to get here is either come through Forks on the west side or through Port Angeles on the east side. There are roads that go almost all the way around the lake and there are many places to pull over, to walk down to the water, to hike, to picnic, or even to stay at. For this Engagement Session, I decided on Lake crescent because there are so many great places to stop at.
On the Olympic Peninsula, there are a few different types of trees that are most prevalent. The Alder tree, with the white peeling bark, is one of the coolest trees to photograph around because it shows so much contrast. They are also one of the few trees in the area that actually loose its leaves. Washington is known for evergreen trees such as cedar, fir, and hemlock.
If you are pondering on a session with this area, let’s talk about coming here. It’s absolutely gorgeous here.
There is so much more fun to be had with these two, let’s all go on an adventure together. Thanks for watching.
I seriously adore Breanne’s smile and giggle. It’s literally adorable as heck and so infectious! I couldn’t help but smile and laugh along with her in the giddiness of the whole experience. How could you not love her?
Probably my favorite shot of the day. Even though it was 45 degrees outside and a bit cold, you can completely feel the warmth and love that these two have for each other.
I knew these two were going to be loads of fun so I made sure we had some seriously fun moments. Where is it written that engagement sessions need to be all serious with long deep looks into each other’s eyes? HAVE SOME FUN!! Let out your personalities and just be present in the moment celebrating the joy of your impending marriage!
