North Cascades Elopement

There isn’t any doubt that anybody who has ever been to Mount Baker or the North Cascades knows just how gorgeous this area is! It’s the perfect location for a couple who loves the outdoors and wants to say their vows in the forest, on a mountain peak or by a river. This Mount Baker Elopement with Maddy and Shane was such a friggin’ blast! We originally planned to start their adventure off at Artist Point, but when we got there the fog was SO heavy that you could hardly see your feet and the rain was pelting us so bad it hurt. So, plan B it was!

We decided to head down the mountain and stop along the way where we pleased and, to be honest, have the fun was just going with the flow and heading out where we wanted! Especially when you elope in the outdoors the weather can be unpredictable so I always prepare my couples for when things like this happen to go into their day with an open mindset. When you have an open mindset like that it helps the day to go smoothly no matter what happens and in this case everything worked out even better than our original plan!

North Cascades Elopement Locations

If you’re thinking about eloping in the North Cascades because you want those PNW vibes and scenery, then choosing to have a North Cascades Elopement would be a brilliant choice! There are mountain views and alpine lakes galore for you to explore and say your vows. If you’re hoping for sunshine for your North Cascades Elopement then go for a summer elopement. If you want more of foggy and moody vibes that Washington offers then a spring elopement would be a great choice! Of course you have to go in with the mindset that you will probably encounter rain.

Artist Point is one of the most popular view points in the area and for a good reason. You’ll get stunning views of Mt. Baker as well as Mt. Shuksan! You also have Diablo Lake and Withdrop. However, there are many, many hiking trails that will offer you privacy and give you a true PNW elopement experience!

Adventurous Mount Baker Elopement

How did you two meet?

We met through rivalary High school friends! We went to rival schools, but knew each other through mutual friends. We had known each other since freshman year but we didn’t start dating till our senior year.

When did you realize that you two were meant to be? What made you want to marry each other?

We never had a single moment where we knew we were meant to be. It was all the little moments adding up; us learning about each other, spending time with each other everyday that gradually made us know we wanted to be together.

How did he propose? Were you surprised or did you expect it?

He proposed on our road trip in Wyoming. It was beautiful! There were mountains in the background with a herd elk at sunset. I had a hunch it would happen sometime on the trip, but it was a magical moment! I was actually so surprised that I at first said no, but then immediately said yes after that haha. 

What is one piece of advice that you could give brides-to-be who plan to elope?

Everything happens for a reason so if there are any negatives that happen on your wedding day try to look at the positives.

"Planning for our day and the day itself would have been completely different without Courtney. We only knew that we wanted to share our vows in the Tuscan countryside and have beautiful photos, and Courtney planned the perfect agenda for that to happen. She coordinated our timing around sunset, and not only were the photos breathtaking, but the actual evening was too. I remember looking out over the vineyards as the sun set, the view becoming more and more stunning by the minute. There were no moments that felt forced or posed, every shot was comfortable and fun and full of love. Courtney is such a sweet, kind, fun person and we truly enjoyed spending the day with her. Courtney helped us to turn our dreams into reality, and we hardly had to do a thing. She allowed us to be in control of our day but gently took all of our wants and needs into consideration while making everything happen. Lastly, our pictures are just magical. Courtney is an incredibly talented photographer, and I feel so lucky that we were able to work with her. I would recommend her over and over again to anyone eloping."

"Let. Me. Tell. You. It's not the technical aspects of photography that are the most difficult. It's the human aspect. Remembering that as a Photographer, you may be behind the lens but you are still a human, in front of other humans, in some of the most raw and intimate of moments. Courtney balances both of these necessities (but rarities) with poise, great direction, and an overall kind calmness that just makes you breathe a sigh of relief. If you've come across Courtney's page and see what you like already, BOOK HER NOW. Don't spend another second looking for another Photographer that doesn't bring anywhere near the amazing light and spirit that this girl brings right here. Thank you again Courtney for allowing my husband and I to marry each other all over again! The images are stunning and I can't wait to blow them up and hang them in our home."

"Working with Courtney was an extremely easy experience, seamless, positive and obviously fun. My wife and I went on our honeymoon and wanted to surprise her with a surprise honeymoon adventure session. Courtney worked with me to make that dream gift for my wife a reality. Meeting and posing for a photographer for the first time can be intimidating, but with Courtney it was anything but that. Courtney is extremely positive and helpful and made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera. She played some of our favorite songs and before we knew we were just having fun and she was catching them every second. Perhaps the best part of our session was that Courtney knew all the characteristic and peaceful places of where we were, which made our photos even more extraordinary. She kept the focus was on my wife and me. When we shared our images with friends and relatives, everyone complimented on Courtney's aesthetics and the emotion she was able to capture. I can't thank Courtney enough for exceeding all our expectations with this photo shoot!!"
