Hayley + Brandon | A Moody Seattle Winter Engagement Session at Lincoln Park

When I received the inquiry from Hayley about their wedding at the base of Mt. Rainier this summer, I was so excited. Then we met for a phone call and I got even more excited. And then they walked up to our meeting spot and we chatted for like a minute and a half and I got the MOST excited!

But then I got home and threw these images into Lightroom and got the MOST EXCITED EVER.

I absolutely love when couples think their photos will be awkward or weird — I think by speaking it and letting those fears breathe it actually makes for an openness and vulnerability at the session that ends in authentic, sincere, amazing moments which this is just chock full of. Never be afraid to share how you’re feeling — I can approach the session from a whole new perspective and we get the outcome below.

Enjoy.

MaiLinh + Jake | Ballard Locks Winter Engagement

Winter means engagement sessions! It’s my favorite way to get to know my wedding couples, to find out what makes them laugh and to see the way they interact with each other. I’m always thrilled and grateful for the little glimpse into their lives.

We started this session with their EXTREMELY spry 8-year-old dog, and when life got too overstimulating for her, we continued on our own. :) I don’t get to spend enough time at the Locks, but they’re such an iconic part of Seattle history. On this particular day, a big day-cruise boat with Christmas EVERYTHING came through and made a performance, so it was busier than usual, but it’s usually a quiet escape in the city.

Enjoy.

Jasmine + Lance | Discovery Park Couples Session

If I could design a dream session, it would include a super-in-love couple, a golden sunset, a vast field and a warm breeze.  This session delivered on EVERY. SINGLE. ITEM.  Jasmine & Lance are two Australians living in Seattle and to witness their love for each other was heart-melting and lovely.  I usually prompt my couples to create movement and moments of connection, but these two were so in tune sometimes it felt like I wasn't even there (and I mean that in the best possible way).  As a photographer, I feel it's my duty to capture the love and connection exactly as it is right now.  I don't want too many of "my" poses showing up -- it should be a reflection of you.  I hope you love the session as much as I do!
