There’s nothing better than a beautiful Pacific Northwest adventure and a brave couple to share it with! Ricky, Shailah and I spent an afternoon driving up to Hurricane Ridge outside of Port Angeles for a snowy engagement session in the mountains. I’m so glad that Shailah had her heart set on snow for their photos—I love it when a couple is up for an adventure that takes us off the beaten path.
In this case, we were lucky that the “path” had just been plowed that morning! A cozy plaid blanket, tall leather boots, and North Face jackets made the perfect ensemble for our snowy excursion. I love how the bright colors popped against the white snow and dark green northwest firs! The snow-covered trees really made the scenery seem otherworldly, as though the forested mountainsides had been transformed into a mystical wonderland. Hurricane Ridge, which is part of Olympic National Park, is an amazing place to visit year-round—but there’s something incredible about a winter drive through the mountains.
When the time finally came to head down the winding mountain road, we were greeted by blue skies and a spectacular view across the Straits of Juan de Fuca! It felt like we had spent the past several hours in another realm as we descended back into town.
