I love the Golden locals. Like these two, who know this valley inside and out. Ryan and Melanie both grew up here, but somehow hadn't met until a few years back when a friend suggested they should connect. And connect they did, with shared interests in all things outdoors. Engaged high above the Grand Canyon, we thought it might be nice to do some engagement photos high above the Columbia Valley. Bennie the beloved K9 came along for this session, and kind of stole the show. Down to earth, relaxed, fun . . . if the time I've spent with these guys is any indicator, their wedding at the end of August is going to be awesome.
