The morning Anna and Piotr started off on a hike up Chino Canyon in Palm Springs, it’s doubtful that Anna suspected it would be the day Piotr proposed to her. They started the hike early in the morning and by the time they finally reached the top of the 10,000 foot climb (yes, these two are incredible athletes!), I can only imagine that they were both were exhausted, sweaty, and feeling not in the least bit romantic. Nevertheless, Piotr set up their camera for what Anna thought was a quick snapshot of them at the top, when in fact, he was about to video their proposal! Obviously, she said “yes” (despite the fact that he jokingly proposed with a plastic spider ring), which brings us to where we are today!

Piotr & Anna wanted their wedding to be somewhere that would showcase the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest, so they celebrated their wedding at Salish Lodge, overlooking the breathtaking Snoqualmie Falls. Their ceremony took place on the terrace beside the falls, and was an intimate celebration with their family and friends. Piotr’s grandmother flew in all the way from Poland, his entire ultimate Frisbee team came from L.A, and Anna’s family and friends were representing the Northwest from Leavenworth. Needless to say, it was a great group of people!

Anna & Piotr, we loved capturing your timeless simplicity, and the tender, quiet love you share. Thank you for inviting us to be a part of your day. It is clear that your love for each other runs deep, and we had a wonderful time with you.
