Franklin Falls Engagement

This Franklin Falls engagement was pretty epic. We only had about an hour on location so it was a bit rushed but I absolutely loved the location. Franklin Falls sits about an hour away from Downtown Seattle on the Snoqualmie River. It’s tucked up in the mountains right off the main road. You’d never even know it was there unless you were looking for it. The river is lined with cabins and is the perfect mountain getaway near Snoqualmie Pass.

Jeremy and Jennifer are avid hikers, cyclists and outdoors people. So naturally they wanted to pick something that reflected that. Franklin Falls was the perfect choice of ease of location + Adventurous vibes. I love when my couples embrace the local landscape here because the PNW is insanely epic. Coming from shooting beach weddings in N.C. for the better part of a decade I’ll take waterfalls and mountains any day of the week for my backdrops.

I really wish we had more time in this location. There was a huge wreck on the way out and we were stuck for over an hour in traffic. So this session ended up being more of a mini-session than a full session but I loved every bit of it even if it was cut a bit short.

Would love to hear your favorite locations in and around the Seattle area in the comments? I’m always looking for new spots to take my couples so if you have a good one let me know!
