Engagement Photographers for Salish Lodge and Snoqualmie Falls North Bend

Meet Michelle and Alex, a happily engaged couple from the Snohomish area. When they were looking for a talented and creative Seattle Wedding Photographer, they found our company. They wanted to make sure their engagement session pictures showed off their love and affection towards each other, which is a precurser to having great wedding photographs. We recommended they do their engagement photographs at Snoqualmie Falls and Salish Lodge. This combination gives you scenic views of the valley and waterfall. Michelle was wearing a floral dress while Alex was wearing a golf shirt and jeans. We took this fabulous picture with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III and a EF 35mm L lens at 2.8 aperture, which gives you the blurred background effect. A lot of things went right with this picture. To get great shots like this, the couple has to be totally comfortable with not only having pictures taken, but with the photographer as well. When we shoot, we have a dialog with the client. It isn't a simple work assignment, it is a growing friendship. We like to get to know each of our clients, which makes the whole process easy. Challenges to getting this engagement picture tend to be with factors beyond our control, such as crowd control at a popular state park as well as making sure the subjects position themselves correctly in front of the camera. Having these soft skills is the key to getting great engagement pictures.

Location: Snoqualmie Falls State Park.
