Sahale Arm Elopement In The North Cascades, Washington | Taylor & David

Well, adventure is an understatement. When Taylor and David asked us to photograph their elopement in the North Cascades, we were SUPER pumped. Everything about the mountain top elopement sounded perfect, including the 12 mile round trip hike to get to the location they wanted photos at (The Sahale Arm).  Taylor and David are avid hikers and know their way around the mountains. Let's just say we (Nick & Danée) were not quite in the shape we needed to be in for a hike like this. Nonetheless, we made the 6 mile trek past Cascade Pass, and up the Sahale Arm. Taylor and David got dressed at the top of the mountain. We then started our journey back down the mountain, stopping for photos along the way. We made our way back to Cascade Pass where we stopped and enjoyed a nice cigar and an even nicer view before changing back to hiking clothes and hiking back to the car in the dark. 

Everything about Taylor and David's elopement was perfect (remember their courthouse wedding where we were the witnesses - HERE). They even brought their dog, Kinley, along for the adventure. Congrats to this awesome couple. Thanks for letting us be a part of your wedding adventure!

Courthouse Elopement In Downtown Seattle Washington | Taylor & David

From the very first email Taylor and David sent, we were SUPER excited for this wedding. It looked a little like this "Hey Nick and Danée, we are planning on going to the courthouse in Seattle and eloping. We then want to do a 12 mile hike in the North Cascades up to Cascade Pass and on to the Sahale arm for post wedding photos." Little did they know, they just described something we only dream about as adventurous photographers.

Here are some of our favorite photos from their intimate courthouse elopement. It was just the 2 of them, and the 2 of us (Nick and Danée). We even got to be the witnesses of their marriage. How cool is that? We can't wait to share the next set of images from the hike in the North Cascades! Stay tuned. Taylor and David, stay awesome ;).
