Bryan and Chantelle have been together for 9 years. They met while playing an online game and the rest is history! Bryan popped the question in what might be one of my favorite proposal stories yet. Chantelle is an early childhood educator. It takes quite a lot of patience and love to teach these little ones and she was incredibly proud when her first “class” of children graduated. Bryan proposed to her on the day of that graduation! Bryan and Chantelle are planning their wedding at a cabin that Chantelle’s grandparents built. Surrounded by woods, rivers and mountains, this cabin in Fall City is sure to incorporate all of the Northwest beauty that you can handle! While the happy couple lives in Nebraska now, they wanted to take their engagement photos in a similar setting so that their save-the-dates would reflect the same outdoor beauty that their wedding will have. While they were home for the holidays, we headed out to North Bend to take their photos. Lucky for us, we experienced a white Christmas and the views of Mt. Si and it’s surrounding areas were just that much prettier with a dusting of white. A chill in the air, the snow crunching beneath our feet, and a visit from the local elk herd, this North Bend engagement session was one of the highlights of my holiday season!
