I want my photos to tell a story first and capture an image second. When you combine a rad couple with an epic mountain top sunset, a storytelling session is what happens. Read on for a glimpse into a Mt Spokane engagement photography session. There was no shortage of views, laughs, and love.
3 Reasons Why You Should Consider a Mountain Top Photo Session
- Sunsets. Like for real friends, sunsets are rad but on top of a mountain? It’s just something totally different.
- Diversity. One of the things I love about Mt Spokane is the ability always to carve out your piece of the mountain. From wildflowers to walking in the towering pines, there is always a secluded section to explore.
- Privacy. Few places give you this vast, abundant landscape with the seclusion that allows for intimate moments. Engagement photos at Mt Spokane provide this contrast of quiet intimacy and overpowering, breathtaking views. It’s an unbeatable combination.
Planning a Mt Spokane Engagement Photography Session
If you think that this is the place for your next photo session, I wholeheartedly agree. However, keep in mind this location takes a bit of planning. The road to the top is only seasonally open (as with my many top destinations) so call before going. Often, it’s closed from October to June for snow. Yes, June. Yikes, right?!
When you’re planning what to wear, think layers. On the warmest day, it’s still about 15-20 degrees cooler at the top and almost always windy. Layers are a must.
Permits and Passes for Mt Spokane
A Discover Pass is required for every vehicle heading up during the warmer months and a snopark pass in the winter. Photographers, don’t forget to make sure you have your permit for shooting in the state park. Trust me; they check up here.
Friends, life goes FAST. As a Spokane photographer, I see this with every family that steps in front of my lens. It’s a beautiful, crazy ride. If you’re thinking about a mountain top photography session, the time is right. It’s not a shoot you’ll regret.
