Every year, I receive inquiries from out-of-town clients visiting Seattle for the first time or simply coming back home to visit family. This past Summer, I was lucky enough to receive a request for engagement photos for a couple visiting from Indiana.
My client had never visited Seattle, so she was looking for recommendations on what could work for a late Fall photo session. I put together a location guide for them that included photos from past sessions from a variety of locations that were accessible from Downtown Seattle where they were staying. They ended up choosing Gold Creek Pond which is about an hour drive from Seattle near the Snoqualmie Pass.
I want to state that I am a photographer that deeply cares about the environment and our community. For that reason, I do follow and practice Leave No Trace principles no matter where I am taking my families and couples for photo sessions.
For popular scenic spots such as Gold Creek Pond, I highly recommend booking your session during the week. It allows us to avoid popular weekend tourists visiting this location.
