I first met Lydia and Ben when we were attending the University of Illinois. We woke up early on a Saturday to hike the trail for their Franklin Falls engagement session in order to get there before sunrise. While it was a cold morning, we were able to have the falls all to ourselves for a couple of hours! We followed up the waterfall by heading to Washington Park Arboretum for some autumnal leaves and ending the day at the Seattle Water Lantern Festival. It was such a fun session, filled with joy and laughter. I can’t wait for their wedding day next June!
