Mount Rainier National Park // Adventure Portraits

In the heart of the Pacific Northwest, where rugged landscapes meet endless skies, Marcia and Hakeem embarked on an unforgettable adventure to celebrate their 5th wedding anniversary. These two are no stranger to a thrilling life…with their shared passion for mountaineering, scuba diving, and globe-trotting that has taken them to some of the most breathtaking corners of the Earth. Yet, for this special occasion, they chose the iconic Mount Rainier National Park as the backdrop for their adventurous anniversary portraits.

As elopement photographers, we’ve had the privilege of capturing love stories in all their forms, but Marcia and Hakeem’s photo shoot left us in awe. The day was initially greeted by cloudy skies, but we decided not to reschedule, and boy, are we glad we didn’t! Nature had something truly magical in store for us.

Mount Rainier, often shrouded in clouds, decided to make a grand appearance, unveiling its majestic beauty in all its glory. The towering peak, kissed by the golden hues of the setting sun, served as a magnificent canvas for these two to shine.

We are already dreaming up our next adventure with this incredible couple! Can’t wait!!
