Mount Rainier Longmeyer Forest Engagement Session Photographer
Taylor and Greg hung out with me on Mt Rainier last week. We picked Rainier because Taylor was obsessed with the super tall trees, and the over all vibe of the forests there! We were not disappointed with the huge trees in the woods there, and we had tons of fun climbing on and over all of the stumps and fallen trees there! The weather was super moody and overcast, which is my absolute favorite, and I was getting total Twilight vibes the WHOLE TIME.
So Taylor and Greg met wayyyyyy back in 2013 in college. They were both going to school in a cute little town called Ellensburg (I've never been there, but it sounds picturesque lol). They had instant chemistry, but they were always in relationships with other people. Timing was not on their side! They remained friends as he was a football player and she was a cheerleader and always kept in touch though they were always unavailable! When Taylor found out that Greg moved to Puyallup, she knew that she had to follow him to just SEE if the spark that they had was real. So when she graduated, she did it! She moved across the state to the same city that he lived, and hit him up! After a few months, the spark that was always there was too real to deny and they started dating!
Greg knew that she was in his life to stay so he took her on a trip back to her hometown in Idaho (secretly to ask her for her parents blessing in marriage!). Once he got that, he took her up to an overlook of her town, a place that was paramount to her childhood. As they looked over the city, her looked at her with tearful eyes and started to tell her how important their love was. He told her that he had a question to ask her, and her heart SKIPPED A BEAT. She had had no idea that this was coming and it was so surreal! She of course said YES, and couldn't believe that this was actually happening! He had gotten her ring size so sneakily as well by just randomly asking her how small women's fingers were and how they knew was size they were. She (i dont know how!) never even suspected him!
I'm so freaking stoked to hang out with these guys when they pledge their love to each other this summer!
