When I convince you and your fiancé to get up at the crack of dawn to meet on the freezing beach, this light is why. Joey, Morgan and I got to bask in the most golden rays Seattle had to offer when we met on Alki for their engagement session. Since it was so early, it was virtually deserted, and we had the whole place to ourselves. They even got in the water, it was freezing! I just adore clients that will take risks, and share their champagne with me :)
Elise and Nick shared their vows on the beautiful Isla de Mujeres in Mexico, but they came back up to the Seattle area to celebrate with friends and family in July. They chose the beautiful Brown’s Point Improvement Club for their reception, located on the water in Tacoma and featuring absolutely stunning views of the sound. The golden light filtered in throughout the evening, which was filled with food, dancing, and vintage cars.
When Bekka and Dillon started planning their engagement session, they knew their parents property near the Hood Canal might be the perfect place. After taking a look at several options around the PNW, we decided that there’s no place like home. We got to explore forests and beaches, and even had to do a little Indiana-jonesing to get onto a sunken dock for the perfect morning light. One of the reasons I just love areas near the Olympic Peninsula like this is because of the awesome variety there is. No two beaches look the same, but they’re usually near mountains, forests, and sometimes even waterfalls! This little part of the earth featured the most enchanted looking trails. Can’t wait for these two to tie the knot at Mountain Spring Lodge this summer!
Caitlin and Ben couldn’t have picked a better day for their engagement session: the sun was out in Seattle, the tide was low (for once) and since it was pretty chilly, we had the whole place to ourselves! Of all the times I’ve shot on the beach in Seattle, I’ve never seen the tide out this far! Forget soft white sand though - this beach with the tide out will remind you more of the black sand beaches of Hawaii! Of course, this engagement session involved a little hiking (in heels no less!), and a whole lot of galavanting in the winter sunlight.
