Gold Creek Pond

Mackenzie and Jordan celebrated their engagement at one of the most beautiful locations in Snoqualmie Pass-Gold Creek Pond. If you haven’t been to Gold Creek Pond, you don’t even know what you’re missing. Seriously, look at your calendar right now and pick a date for a day trip. You won’t regret it! This is an extremely accessible location for shoots. The path is ADA compliant which makes this spot pretty popular from family shoots to elopements to engagements. My one warning is to make sure that you try to shoot either early morning or late evening. If at all possible, try to shoot during the week. This location can get very crowded!

The Planning Process

Mackenzie and Jordan were so flexible! We originally scheduled their engagement shoot for an early fall evening. However, in good old PNW fashion, we were rained out. None of us wanted to push the shoot any later than necessary so we all agreed for an early morning sunrise shoot the very next day! We woke up earlier than 99.9% of the rest of the world and actually it paid off. For the first half hour we were the only people on site! There was something magical about watching the sunrise over the mountain and lake. The sky turned every shade of pink and purple as we shot and the fog resting over the lake was indescribable. It was absolutely incredible having their engagement at Gold Creek Pond!

Mackenzie and Jordan

If you have been around here for any amount of time, you know engagement shoots are my favorite. It’s dedicated alone time before the wedding and to me its the best part of the whole wedding process! This time was no different. I loved having the chance to get to know them a little better. Mackenzie and Jordan were incredibly relaxed and so easy to talk to. I felt like we had been friends for years to be honest. It’s an important part of any photographer’s job to help make any client feel comfortable during the shoot. I think it goes both ways though! They made me feel like an old friend and I’ll always be thankful for that gift of kindness and hospitality they showed.
