Attire- Rent the Runway
Nicole and Leon’s engagement session was a great one once we made it through the multiple re-schedules. Everytime we thought we found the perfect evening for a sunrise rain would appear in the forcast. We got lucky on this beautful day at Kayak Point park, Leon and Nicole salsa danced while the gorgeous light set a beautiful glow all around them. We talked about the elopement they wear planning in the fall at alki beach and had lots of laughs while Nicole tried not to step on Leons toes.
It’s not often you meet people that grew up in Skykomish so when Marissa suggested doing Anna and her engagement photo’s in where my husband James also grew it was going to be a good time. It was so good to see the town and hear the memories that Marissa had that sounded similar to stories I had heard before. The small town of colored pastel-colored houses where everybody knows their neighbor proved to be the perfect setting to document their love story.
We got luck with a beautiful day at Scenic Beach State Park documeting Paige and Will's engagement photo. I feel in love with the rich color of the trees and the light beeze that moved along the beach. We loved the idea of keeping with the simple theme of small and simple for their Intimate Port Gamble Pavilion wedding in July.
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
We were presented true PNW weather for Ayla and Davids engagement session it not only rained it poured as we ventured over the very already slippery log bride across a part of the falls. I feel thankful that we didn’t fall because that would have been a fun walk back to the car.

As we headed in to the second day the mood was light and calm and laid back. We found a little spot away from all the crowds to keep it intimate and special to just them Megan’s dress was a low backed Mermaid with a fun flirty bottom. As Megan headed up the stairs to where Mo was waiting with is back turned she placed her had on his shoulder as he turned around his eyes lit up with happiness to see his beautiful bride.

Making our own Tribe at The Lookout Lodge with Heidi and Carmen
We got lucky for their engagement session we had a lot of rain that week so we were all worried that we might get rained out. But as driving out to The Lookout Lodge the sun was perfectly sitting shinning in all its glory.
When planning a wedding we start building our tribe. We start putting together the people who bring us up and support us. Carmen and Heidi are doing exactly that building their tribe, When these two first meet in Kansas they became very fast Friends and who knew that nearly 2 years later they would be planning their wedding. With the blending of two diverse backgrounds it was so great to incorporate both flags that showed the background they both were bringing to this blended relationship.

Engaged- Deception Pass Park – with Sarah and Erik
It takes a special type of couple to Do their engagement photo’s in the rain, to just be pure and vulnerable. Sarah and Eric they have that pureness that love outside the lines, as we started their session we had some moments the rain held off. We walk down to the beach stopping and getting some pictures on the way down and exploring the beauty of not just the joy of the beginning of their lives as they come together also the views that we have all around us in Washington.
Down on the beach we got a few moments before it started to pour most of the time couples will get upset and we try to hold out in hopes it might stop after a few, But to our surprise the most beautiful thing happen as the sky’s gave us everything it had. Sarah and Erik kissed and embraced and the pureness and the rawness showed through, what could have been a horrible engagement session turned into one of the best of Fall in the Pacific Northwest.
Location : Deception Pass Park
