Olivia and Jesse booked me to photograph their engagement photographs. They wanted their engagement photographs to use on their Knot website, and the share with friends and family!
Olivia and Jesse met a long, long time ago, as childhood friends. While visiting her grandparents house in a small town in Illinois, she met Jesse during the summer she spent there.
They didn’t get back in touch until Jesse friended Olivia on Snapchat! They originally didn’t intend for a relationship to form, but Olivia says Jesse was very persistent, and so she gave it a go!
Fast forward to today, they have been engaged for a little over two weeks, and are enjoying engaged life! Jesse popped the question while they were visiting friends and family in El Paso, Texas. As they went on a hike, Jesse asked some freinds to take a photo of them, and then got down on one knee and asked Olivia that big question! Unknown to Olivia, everyne, even her parents knew about the suprise proposal!
They both live in the PNW now, Jesse is finishing up his Master’s at Washington State University in Pullman, Wa, and Olivia is working out of Grad School in Spokane, Wa.
So, they wanted to do a shoot that commemorated the PNW, and highlighted what they love about this area. They decided to go to the Spokane River, where they often go on runs and hikes.
