The last time I saw Lindsay, we were doing her graduation photos to celebrate her finishing her degree at UW! Almost 5 years later, she’s on a whole new adventure, getting married! Its so fun for me to see all the fun milestones my clients go through, and I get to document! Lindsay and Cameron wanted something quintessentially Seattle, and Fishermans Terminal + a stop at Discovery Park was just the ticket. We had some awesome light and almost no rain, and the connection between these two was fire! Can’t wait to get them in front of my lens again next spring for their wedding!
As you can tell, I live in the PNW. Born and bred, 28 years. I’ve been a photographer for 6. I have never. Ever. In my LIFE - had a session with rain like this. You would think after all these years rolling around in soggy old Seattle I would have seen it all. I shit you not my shoes took a WEEK to dry. Here’s my question though - what dark magic is Rachel using?? She’s been hiking for hours in a torrential downpour and still looks flawless in these pics? I NEED THE SECRET.
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.
For Lauren and Josh’s engagement session, we knew we needed something spectacular. These two are a true modern romance: meeting online while Josh was visiting the PNW, then doing two years long distance while he lived in Yakima. Their love story involves many nights on the phone up till 3 am, and millions of text messages before they could move to the same city. Josh loves Lauren’s confidence and sense of self, and Lauren is in love with Josh’s hardworking spirit and of course, his dance moves! They both love slow mornings making breakfast together and just enjoying each other’s presence. Their wedding this fall at Salish Lodge is sure to be one of the most romantic.
