Kelsey and Wes
Location: Mt Index and Skykomish River
Kelsey and Wes are the only people I knew going into my last trip to Washington. It is super intimidating to fly across the country to work with people you’ve never actually met in person. But I took a lot of comfort knowing I’d be seeing at least a few friendly faces. Kelsey, in all her sweetness, spread the word I’d be in town, how thoughtful is she?! And I ended up booking a few extra shoots because of it!
Kelsey and I were drinking coffee one morning in their apartment overlooking the water, talking about life and what it’s like to chase your dreams for a living, expectations versus reality, and good stuff like that. It’s always so meaningful to have a heart to heart with someone I’m going to photograph. It allows me to create honest photographs of someone because I feel like I know them on a genuine friendship level. She is such an inspiration to me and I’m grateful to know her.
I’ve said it before but I genuinely mean it when I say every person I photographed in Washington is incredible and truly inspired me. We had a ton of fun playing on the Skykomish River and ended the night at Mt Index. This night will always go down in the books as being one of the best because I spent it with two incredible couples. Endless thanks to Wes and Tim (check out Tim and Hannah’s engagement session we did on the same night via the link below) who took us to some cool “only the locals know” kind of spots along the Skykomish with a killer view of Mt Index.
