Anacortes Engagement Photography | Katie + Sean

Anacortes Engagement Photography by David Clumpner

Katie booked me to be her Drummond, Montana wedding photographer on a Thursday afternoon and we had this Anacortes engagement photography session the next day!  We discovered during our consultation that she and Sean live near Bellingham and I was staying with my parents in Washington after Thanksgiving and they had a very short window of time before Sean is being deployed to Okinawa, so they came down to Anacortes the next evening!  We had just an hour so we took a little tour through the dense forest of the Anacortes Forest Lands.  The sun was out for the first half of the session so, combined with the dark timber, we were able to play with the light and get some really moody images.  I particularly like them because this is something that is hard to achieve in Montana’s lodgepole forests.  We don’t always get this drama and depth to our light and backgrounds, which made this a really fun and creative shoot!  I like all of their images, but this first one really resonates with me.  I get a lot of feeling from it, both from the lighting and from their expressions and body language.  I would have this one printed large and framed on my wall if I were them!  🙂

Sean and Katie will be getting married next summer on their own piece of property in the mountains above Drummond, Montana.  That will be my first wedding in Drummond and, perhaps because there are no wedding venues there, it’ll probably be awhile before I get another chance!  But I can’t wait, as both Katie and Sean keep describing it to me as “almost 360 degree views”.  And my favorite part is that when they filled out their Contact Information questionnaire, under the space for “venue address” they wrote that they’ll have to give me directions because there is no address.  I can’t wait!
