I honestly don't know if you could pick a more beautiful spot to capture memories than at Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park.
On a warm, summer day, I met up with Shawna and Chris near the Lake McDonald Lodge for our session. We had spent some time getting to know one another beforehand, and I loved hearing their story of how they met and learning more about what makes them "them"!
It was so clear to me how much they loved each other, and I felt so lucky and grateful to be able to document and be a part of. One thing that has really been impressed upon me throughout all the craziness of 2020 is just how important our relationships and connections truly are. Moments that we share with our loved ones are truly...everything. I'll never take hugs for granted again!
As a photographer, nothing brings me more joy than capturing moments like these. I want to capture moments of feeling in love, spending time together in awe-inspiring places, and even what it felt like at a certain age of your life. It sounds cliche, but photographs allow you to re-live the most beautiful and important moments of your life. They are powerful reflections, and documenting these memories brings me SO much joy!
A place like Glacier National Park only highlights the beauty of the moments you experience there. And I truly felt that as I watched Shawna and Chris standing in front of the most incredible lake and mountains; as I saw the beautiful sunset reflect off the water; as I saw them forget they were taking pictures, and got lost in the moment with each other.
