Rattlesnake Lake Engagement // Bradley + Meredith


We are thrilled to unveil the breathtaking engagement photos of Bradley and Meredith taken at the picturesque Rattlesnake Lake!

Bradley and Meredith recently made the move from Houston to the enchanting Seattle area. When Bradley decided it was time to propose, he envisioned a quintessentially Northwest backdrop for this special moment. However, he found himself unprepared for the typical Northwest weather.

And boy, did he get it! On the day of the shoot, Rattlesnake Lake greeted them with pouring rain, gusty winds, and bone-chilling cold—classic Northwest conditions!

Despite the challenging weather, the resulting engagement photos captured against the backdrop of Rattlesnake Lake are nothing short of spectacular. They embody the raw essence of the Pacific Northwest in all its rugged beauty. The mist swirling around Rattlesnake Ridge adds an ethereal touch to the scene. Congratulations to the happy couple! Our photographers immortalized the couple’s wonderful moments.

For those unfamiliar with the location, Rattlesnake Lake is conveniently situated off Exit 32 on Interstate 90 and is managed by Seattle Public Utilities. Ample parking is available, with the lake just a short stroll from the parking area. It’s truly a gem nestled within the heart of the Pacific Northwest.

Rattlesnake Lake Engagement Photos

Rattlesnake Ledge

The Rattlesnake Lake area serves as the gateway to the highly popular Rattlesnake Ledge hiking trail. You can see the summit of the trail on top of the mountain behind the engagement photos. It’s a relatively moderate hike to the top. You should plan on spending two to three hours. From Rattlesnake Ledge, you enjoy sweeping views down to the lake and across the Cascade foothills. It’s gorgeous!

Rattlesnake Lake

Rattlesnake Lake is managed by Seattle Public Utilities. It’s part of the watershed that provides drinking water to the city of Seattle. However, Rattlesnake Lake itself is not part of the water supply. The lake is only about 20 feet deep. The shoreline also fluctuates during different seasons. That’s why you can sometimes walk out to the tree stumps. But sometimes, a few feet of water cover them. As a result, you’re engagement photos at Rattlesnake Lake will always be a bit unpredictable. That’s the beauty of it!
