The Lovely Audree + Nick

 

When it comes to weddings, nothing is better than getting to help decorate and sneaking in some fun shooting while relieving some of your friends' stress. Back in October, I got the pleasure of going to Nick and Audree's wedding at the Curtis Hotel, in Denver, CO. It was such a beautiful event. I'll have a little place in my heart for this city forever.

Index Wall

Just before you reach Steven's Pass in the upcoming months, I recommend you stop in the town of Index. Drive slow, stop at the stop sign, and if you see someone outside their house, wave! I have a soft spot for this hike because it's not something you find on WTA or crawling with hipsters. It's a trek to get up the wall, but worth the view.

Thank you Will for taking some awesome photos of us :)

Shooting Sunrise on Camano Island

Just because it's December does not mean one must stay inside– unless you still have been procrastinating putting up a Christmas tree. (*raised hand emojii) Thursday night I reached out to a fellow loyal instagrammer and we decided we'd go shoot sunrise up north. It was my first experience meeting up with a stranger at dark, as well as walking through the woods, but i'm happy to report I am still alive! ;) IMG_6106 (1)IMG_6115 (1)

This is Calvin Blond! Check out his instagram for moody, epic landscape photography and coffee! He took the shot of the baby doe who didn't want to eat the apple I tried to give him/her.

We drove around Camano Island and decided to head east–I was craving mountains after Wednesday's adventure up at Index Wall (blog post to come). We found a family of deer, fog, and some great views up by Pilchuck.

7 Photos that will get you ready for winter in the PNW.

Baby it's cold outside... and I am loving every second of it! Last week I drove up with Mio and Dexter (The adorable miniature Australian Shepard mix with an Instagram) to Lake Diablo, only this time we actually found the lookout! (Stay tuned for a reflections post on our first time up there.) The sun had already set behind the mountains, making for some beautiful tones on the water. lake diablo perspective north cascades

Now for those of you who don't know me, don't know this little plum of mine either. Stella and I have grown up taking photos together, whether it's adventuring around in a golf cart in Kalama, WA or jumping in and out of the car for roadside attractions. These were taken on Mountain Loop Highway, where we found this freezing lake that we had to trekk through.

Now that snow has fallen in town I am expecting my instagram feed to turn white, and I have to say I am beyond ready for this holiday season. Be sure to follow me for updated adventures! @hellofrankenbery

Cheers!

October is the most wonderful time of the year

October is the most wonderful time of the year

If you don't know, october is my favorite month. I can't imagine living in a world without October. I love stepping on crunchy leaves and wearing dark purple lipstick. I love the cheesy halloween decorations that I put up with my dad and carving pumpkins. This adventure last Sunday was at the Farm at Swans Trail.  Petting zoos, hand dipped corn dogs, and a little chilly sunshine made for the perfect day.
