Now, I know that October is a bipolar month when it comes to weather, and that was definitely the case during this Rimrock Lake Engagement session. Luckily, I have some kick-butt clients who are down for whatever, and aren’t afraid of a little rain or bone-chilling wind.
I met with Justin and Jordan just outside of Naches for their session, and they willfully jumped into my car- a human they had never met- to go up the pass to Rimrock. We stopped at some killer locations along the way, and even took quite the scenic route around the lake, and ended up getting rained on pretty good, blew to pieces by the wind, and then back to okay weather all within the course of about 2 hours. But you know what, these two KILLED it.
I laughed a ton during their session, and I could see why these two get along so great. They knew when to be serious, but I could also tell them were no strangers to having a great time. We seriously laughed so much.
These two met during college at Oregon Tech. They both studied civil engineering, but as Jordan told me, it was a case of “will they, won’t they…” At one point during college, it was going to be a long distance thing, but it just so happened that Justin got a job offer in Jordan’s home town, and they decided that if that wasn’t a sign they should be together, they didn’t know what would be. They have dated the last two years, but it wasn’t until a family camping trip that they became each other fiancees. After he had the ring designed and asked for Jordan’s parents blessing, they headed out for a camping trick over 4th of July weekend. Justin had plans to ask Jordan at some point of the trip, but they never ended up being alone together. It wasn’t until they had helped everyone pack up, and everyone else headed out that they finally had some alone time. They were just getting ready to get into the car to head out when Justin tapped on her shoulder and that’s when he asked her to marry him. She made me laugh because she sad “I didn’t really hear him very well as I got distracted by the shiny ring in the box, but I did hear him ask ‘Will you marry me?’ to which I could only nod without bursting into tears. He put the ring of my finger, we kissed, hopped in the truck, and went shooting before heading home.”
With as much fun as we had during this session, I’m so excited for their winter wedding this January! It’s going to be a blast!
