Frandelis + David | Seattle Pioneer Square Engagment Session

When Frandelis emailed telling me she and David were going to be visiting from California and wanted engagement photos with a city feel, I knew exactly where to bring them. When we met it was as if they dressed exactly for this spot — I love the way the drama of her black dress works with the concrete and cityscape behind them. Shooting in unconventional locations is so fun for me. I have a whole series called “highway love” in mind — more on that later.

Until then, enjoy these two!


Kimberly + David | Rattlesnake Engagement Session

I’ve known these two since grade school. I moved and was the new kid at the beginning of 5th grade — I remember going to a “cool kids” basement party the winter of that year and David was there. I tried to show off my dance moves to impress everyone. Pretty sure I embarrassed myself. Now he, the host of that party, and several other kids from that class will be standing in his wedding decades later. And I get to photograph the thing.

David and Kimberly live in Chicago, where I’m from, but came out to visit for a weekend and have their engagement session done in the great PNW. I, with a newborn and unable to travel, found this pretty awesome.

Kimberly is the kindest soul you’ll meet and saved someone’s life over the phone recently as a 911 dispatcher. So not only is she beautiful but she’s calm in the face of tragedy and comes out a winner. David’s the same nice kid I remember from all those years ago. They are just adorable together.

Enjoy their beautiful faces.
