Sluice Boxes State Park Adventure Session – Great Falls, MT – Abby + Shane

"Love is meant to be an adventure..."

Abby and Shane are a couple with beautiful souls and adventurous spirits – so I knew that we had to make their session truly showcase their love for each-other in a beautiful landscape. We agreed that hiking at Sluice Boxes State Park would create a phenomenal backdrop that was so perfectly "them." 

We hiked the trail until we reached a stream access area and began taking photos at this point. The water was a bit high due to spring runoff but I was thankful for an area of rocks that they were able to stand on (and waterproof boots that I wore)!

We then continued back to the next location – it's amazing how much this next area inspired me! I thought I had my entire game plan thought out but when we got to this area I just couldn't get enough of it.

Our next location was one of the ones I had most looked forward to when planning – the edge of a cliff overlooking the beautiful area below. It was a natural place for me to pause and soak in the views during my past hikes in the area. I knew it would be the perfect place for this couple to enjoy the landscape and soak in the moment together.

We probably could have stayed on that cliff for hours while soaking up the beautiful views. It was near impossible to edit these photos without smiling along with them the entire time. Their positive energy was contagious. But alas, the sun was quickly going down and we had one more spot on our list to get photos at!
