Outdoor enthusiasts flock to the Pacific Northwest for its scenic hikes and natural beauty. For Faithlife’s designers, the mountains and trails surrounding Bellingham, Washington offer a treasure trove of photo ops.
Stunning photos like these can only come from real people surrounded by real beauty. That’s why our designers have taken trips throughout the Pacific Northwest to bring back beautiful pictures of God’s creation.
Here are 30 amazing photos taken from Washington state’s Big Four Ice Caves this winter:
Living in the Pacific Northwest, many of our designers are outdoor fanatics. When they find themselves in a particularly beautiful or interesting setting, they sometimes return to take pictures for Faithlife to use.
Anthony Fiorillo (wearing the green coat in the pictures above) says, “These trips are a great change of pace from the office. When we have a slower week, we can get out and shoot beautiful places like this. It helps us create a large database of great stock photography for the teams pushing out our amazing media.”
When I asked how the team decides where to go, Josh Gray said, “We picked the Big Four Ice Caves because they are within range for a day trip. They’re surrounded by beautiful mountains and the ice caves themselves are breathtaking. At the end of the cave is a massive waterfall—pictures don’t do it justice.”
He went on to say, “We try to incorporate themes into our photo shoots. You’ll notice some shots of Anthony ice climbing—those could be arranged into a theme like overcoming adversity.”
When you own Logos Bronze or higher, you get Logos Stock Media, which includes hundreds of beautiful stock photos taken by Faithlife’s designers on trips like these.

Faithlife’s design team has been known to roam the Pacific Northwest mountains. They’ve been spotted everywhere from Mt. Baker, Washington to Whistler, British Columbia.
It’s no wonder they spend time up there: the Pacific Northwest is one of the most beautiful places in the world.
Faithlife gives each team of employees a small monthly budget to take a break from work and spend time together. That’s right, they get paid to take gorgeous trips like this together.
The idea behind the budget is that it motivates people to bond outside of work. It seems to be doing a pretty great job.
Derek Schrock, a Faithlife designer, says, “Hanging out together at the Park Butte fire lookout for the night was a once in a lifetime opportunity. Our manager, Nick Kelly, is a pretty huge outdoor enthusiast, so we always do fun team activities like sailing, kayaking, and snowshoeing.”
Schrock says, “These trips unite us as a team and create friendships that make work more enjoyable. Personally, my favorite part of working at Faithlife is my team, and these trips have been a big part of that.”
Take a look at 23 stunning photos they took throughout the Pacific Northwest:
