Beth & Kevin's Seattle Engagement Session

Beth and Kevin have a really awesome engagement story but I think I'm going to wait to share that for their wedding blog post this summer ;) These two are "my people" - they love BBQ, the Seahawks, and having fun. Their wedding will take place at the family lake house in August and I know that we are going to have an amazing time and make amazing pictures. For their engagement session, Beth and Kevin said that they just love being around Lake Union. We met at the Center for Wooden Boats where we got busted trying to take a quick pic without a life vest, then we moved on to Gas Works Park. It was the most mild, beautiful December day and also a Sunday which meant Seahawks football. I wore my Richard Sherman jersey under my coat and then the conversation came up about Kevin wearing his jersey for a few pics at the end of the session. Beth was for it, but concerned because she had forgotten to bring any Seahawks gear. She and I are about the same size so I insisted that she literally take the shirt off of my back! We went into the bathroom, traded tops, and boom! Fun Seahawks photos to close out their session :)


Shelby & Pasquale's Seattle Engagement Session

Always the wedding photographer, never the bridesmaid? That had been the case for me until my beautiful sister-in-law asked me to be the maid of honor (matron?!) in her July 2015 wedding. I am so, so excited!! Last month they flew up to Seattle from Los Angeles for their engagement session, but no fear, I am happy to report that I will NOT be photographing their wedding! They have hired my friend, the talented Anita Martin Photography, for their big day so that I can do my matron of honor duties and be truly present for their wedding. We had typical Seattle weather for their session. In fact, it was raining so hard that we had a hard time being outdoors at all. Even with an umbrella the rain was blowing sideways and soaking all of us to the bone. Luckily we found some great covered areas down by Pike Place Market. Pasquale felt like he needed an adult beverage to loosen up so we stopped by a pub and happened to find a light filled little booth that overlooked the market sign! I love when that happens :) The next day the weather cleared up a bit so we ventured to the lighthouse at Discovery Park which is right down the street from my house. I am so glad we went out that 2nd day!

I had a great time with these two, as always, and am already counting the days until I get to put on a bridesmaid dress and stand next to Shelby as she marries the man of her dreams.
