As a photographer who has a deep love and admiration for the mountains, there is a mission I'm passionate about: Leave No Trace. I'm all about traveling to the deepest parts of the forest and leaving the beauty and only taking the photos with me.
See how Between the Pine implemented Leave No Trace in the different adventures below as well as simple ways you too can Leave No Trace.
Photography without a trace
A secluded and intimate Airbnb wedding that took place on the Columbia River Gorge during the Pacific Northwest winter.
Caitlynn and Luke packed their suitcases full of Seattle feels and headed south to the bride’s hometown of Waco, Texas. They brought all the deep, rich colors of the Pacific Northwest to the Lone Star State, and there wasn’t a detail lacking in intentional planning and design.
An engagement session that took place at Diablo Lake in North Cascades National Park (the least visited national park in the United States!). From a lake at the base of Diablo Lake to an epic overlook, this engagement session will have you planning your own trip to the North Cascades.
A picturesque Washington mill-town on the Olympic Peninsula hears wedding bells as a beautiful bride and groom celebrate their wedding day in the historic chapel. With an intimate forest first look that will leave you reaching for the Kleenex and the bride rocking a white leather jacket, this Pacific Northwest wedding is filled with unique and personalized details.
Simples ways you too can leave no trace:
Stay on the trial
Pack out all items you bring (and if you see trash left behind, pick it up)
Although the forest creatures are cute, resist feeding them your PB&J crumbs
Leave the great outdoors as you found it (yes, even though vibrant colored wildflowers)
