Laura & Jason // Clouds and passion in the mountains

Laura and Jason have been friends for several years now. They are full of life, intelligence and mischief.  I’ve watched their relationship grow and deepen over that time.  I photographed Laura’s brothers wedding a couple of years back.  When Laura asked to FaceTime with me as I was traveling last December I suspected their might be some good news!  And when they asked me to photograph them and their wedding I was stoked!

We had planned to spend an afternoon in the mountains near Issaquah, but the weather had other ideas!  We spent a bit of time relaxing at their place and headed into the mountains anyway.  But as these things go, a late snow pack had closed the road we wanted!  It was getting late, so we parked and decided to explore  a near by creek.  This is one of my favorite shoots.

Take a look and see why.

 

“When all thoughts
Are exhausted
I slip into the woods
And gather
A pile of shepherd’s purse.

Like the little stream
Making its way
Through the mossy crevices
I, too, quietly
Turn clear and transparent.”
―Ryōkan
