snowy engagement photos in shaver lake

Kelsey and Tim made the drive up to Shaver Lake for some gorgeous winter engagement photos. Since their first date was up in the mountains, it was only fitting to celebrate their engagement with photos in the mountains. This meadow we found off the side of the road was absolutely perfect, and had so much variety for different photos! And the trees still had snow sitting on their branches, the ground was smooth and perfect and the lighting was so beautiful.

I met Tim a couple years ago when Kelsey started talking about this co-worker who just wouldn’t take no for an answer. Kelsey was going to school so men were not high on her priority list. But when she told me she and Tim were going fishing and said “…but it’s not a date” I knew it wasn’t true. And here we are planning their wedding!

Congrats you two love birds, and your winter engagement photos are stunning. Shaver Lake never fails to show off for my clients. And Tim, welcome to the family!
