Rachel and Ian live in the beachside town of Mukilteo, WA and adore it, so naturally they wanted to have their engagement session there as well. They are nature lovers and have a favorite area they've loved to walk their dog at for years, called Japanese Gulch. It is a cool retreat from the hot summer sun, full of lush green foliage and flowing water. Rachel looked like a summer forest princess and literally glowed with beauty and love for Ian. After taking a leisurely stroll through the woods, we ended on the beach to get a few shots in the setting sun. Such a lovely evening with two perfectly lovely people.
