Wind-Swept Pacific Northwest Engagement

Real Couples, Film Photography, EngagementsJaime FenwickComment

Whether you're caught up in the blustery days of full-on fall, or are just longing to be swept along by autumnal breezes--no matter where you live or what current climate surrounds you--this windswept mountain-top engagement session for Marissa + Tyler by Jessica Rose Photography is sure to envelope you in its cozy embrace.   Simple and rustic, featuring a wardrobe that compliments the surroundings of Washington state's Rattlesnake Ridge, this engagement session could easily stand as a rugged elopement or romantic anniversary session.  

What I love most is that Jessica has focused on capturing genuine expressions and authentic moments between Marissa + Tyler, all the while emphasizing details that help to describe the setting and mood: the shadowy forest lighting on ferns, the furious winds whipping through Marissa's incredible curls, the, the tight embrace the couple shares obviously meant to endow physical warmth and express deep love.  There are no DIY details or props of any kind, just the sheer beauty of  wilderness and intimacy, composed and captured with grace and intention.  More please!  I'm begging to see much, much more of this kind of paired down perfection and I think many of you are ready for this too!
