I knew this shoot was going to be one for the books as soon as Alex and Lada opened their car trunk full of outfits and snacks and Alex asked, “Is it okay if I bring this?” pointing to his gorgeous amber acoustic guitar. Um, YES??? What followed was a breathtaking road trip for a romantic photo session in the thick redwoods forest surrounding the base of the iconic Mt. Rainier. We took a serene stroll to an empty river basin, and later I hid a stone’s throw away as Alex serenaded Lada from the porch of their cozy A-frame cabin. Romantic doesn’t even come close to describing the chemistry between these two heartthrobs.
