Ashley and Zach are getting married this year! For their engagement, they wanted somewhere with forests and fields. I had the perfect place in mind.
WSU Vancouver has beautiful trails that take you through all that.
The beginning of the trail brings you along a field of flowers (depending on the time of year) with trees in the background that shade the creek.
A gorgeous backdrop to highlight nature in your session.
Heading into the trees, you come across a cute little bridge that spans Salmon Creek. It also has these cute little stairs that make a perfect place to stop.
Across the creek and through the woods, another giant field with tall grasses gives some great foreground and background elements to your portraits.
From the upper trail, you can see this spot with a gorgeous tree and the slow moving creek meandering by, so we decided to explore a little bit and find the trail to it. What a nice little private beach!
Back near the beginning of the trail, they have the wooden fence that I like to end our sessions with.
