Emily & Karlek: Trillium Lake Engagement

Emily and Karlek are an outdoorsy couple who chose to shoot their winter-time engagement at one of Oregon’s most picturesque locations: Trillium Lake. There was one small hitch: when we arrived at the road to the lake, we found it had been recently closed due to a giant dumping of snow. As in, the stop sign was almost completely buried.

Undeterred, we parked and walked the several miles to the lake instead, which actually made the shoot a lot more fun since we were able to experience winter in the Oregon mountains much more intimately.

Weather sometimes causes changes to the plan, but embracing the unexpected keeps things organic and unique.
