Lindsey + Jared | A PNW Forest Engagement Session

Meeting with Lindsey and Jared to talk about their wedding, I learned that I would probably definitely absolutely love them. Planning a private ceremony out in nature to be followed by a big bash with all their friends and family sounds like a dream. I’m so excited to be capturing their wedding day, and had such a great time with them during this session. I love this location — it’s not a big flashy spot, yet it feels like the perfect surrounding for intimate, joyful, sweet photos. I felt free to create, to pause, to see new things, and I loved it. I hope you do, too.



Rachel + Jon | Lincoln Park West Seattle Engagement

I had completely forgotten that Rachel told me she was a dancer. We showed up to our shooting spot at Lincoln Park, wandered in a ways and I saw a great clearing to get started. I love open space and outdoor locations the most for shooting. No one’s around to watch, there’s room to move, and fresh pine air never hurt anyone. I digress. I forgot she told me she was a dancer. I told them to just move around together a bit while holding hands, more so I could work on my lighting and settings, and what I got was chemistry made visible with the way these two worked across this forest floor — all within 5 seconds. What followed was an hour of side-splitting laughter. I clicked about 3 million images this whole session and I just love it. I’m so excited to shoot their wedding next month.
