Over the 4th of July weekend, I finally had a chance to meet up with Kellie and Zach for their amazing engagement session. Zach currently lives out of town, so we were tight on scheduling and faced the threat of rain, but we were still able to get to Great Falls, brave the crowds and take some of my favorite pictures yet. I haven’t been to Great Falls since high school so it was nice to be back and to try a different location for a session.
If you’ve never been to Great Falls, you might not be aware that there is some rocky terrain in the area. Sadly, many of the spots I remember climbing seem to have been closed off, but that didn’t keep us from finding a nice secluded area to use for the shoot. A few brides might not enjoy climbing on the rocks for their engagement session, but Kellie was great about it.
To be fair, her status as a rookie Redskin cheerleader may have given her a slight advantage in agility and allowed us to get some unique shots—and yes, that is a real stone they’re holding.
It was an adventurous day that included some time along the falls, a quick outfit change by Kellie and a trek into the woods, which all resulted in some absolutely amazing photos. I can’t wait for the chance to hang out with and photograph this couple again at their wedding, unfortunately for me it isn’t until July 2016.
