It was a beautiful winter day for Chi and Saurav engagement session. The light was filtered through the trees and everything had so much color. Saurav is so funny and had us laughing for so much of the session.
We chatted about their upcoming wedding in India and the planning of their home reception to share with family and friends when they returned.
Spending time with Claire and Jeff is never dull, the days are always full of laughs and jokes. When you meet them you can see they are best friends and every aspect of their lives is an adventure. And may of their adventures has brought them to Lake Wenatchee in the Plaines area.
Side note this was Claire’s exit dress and the band she wore in her hair on their wedding date at Pine River Ranch last July.
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.
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.
Megan & Mo’s Day 2 | Willow Lodge Wedding | Woodinville, Wa Wedding Photographer
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. They spent some time alone to just take in the moment of everything this week had brought they were now partners in this wonderful thing we call Life.
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.
We got to meet up with Courtney and Michael to celebrate their 1 year wedding anniversary, and catch up to what they have been keeping busy with if you follow my blog you would have seen their lovely wedding May 2016.
In the time since their wedding they have bought a house and moved out to Camano Island.
They had one more huge thing that had happen ! Yep you guessed it they were getting ready to welcome there first babe. They are expecting their first daughter in October. We set up the session as a Maternity Anniversary session. Which we love the Anniversary sessions are all about what happen in the year. And Lets face it we all know the rhyme
Courtney and Michael sitting in the tree
First comes love.
Then comes marriage.
Then comes baby* in the baby carriage,
Sucking her thumb,
Wetting her pants,
Doing the hula, hula dance!
Kylie and David entered our drawing when we meet at last years Snohomish Wedding tour, From the time we meet I knew we would be a great fit and when they where selected as the winners of our 4 hour of wedding coverage we knew we where both in for such a treat. Kylie and David were unsure where to take their engagement photo’s I suggested Lord Hill Park. We had scheduled then in the fall and they wanted to find a location to show all the color’s the PNW has in our fall months.
We are excited to be apart of their Summer wedding in August 2018 at the Kitsap Memorial Park.
