Near the city, the opportunities for Seattle engagement photos are almost limitless In less than an hour, you can be taking your Seattle engagement photos in the mountains, on the Sound, or downtown if you fancy a city backdrop. I love variety.  There are many many more locations that I could add to this list–and […]

Seahurst Park is yet another gem on the water in the Seattle area.   And Seahurst Park is perfect for an engagement session. I like to show up early, for most things in life. Partly because I hate being ‘that guy’ who shows up late, but for engagements and elopements specifically, I like to get […]

Meeting up with Alexis and Kay for this Point Defiance engagement session rounded out a really good weekend.   Point Defiance is a sprawling park north of Tacoma, WA. It’s got beaches, a zoo, an aquarium, gardens… And miles and miles of trails. Alexis, Kay, and I went out to Owen Beach, and then walked away […]

I met up with Ashley and Allison for their Discovery Park engagement session in some…uncooperative weather. But they rocked it anyway. Listen, it’s Washington. Rain is rain, it happens, and your session can still be incredible. A Discovery Park engagement session gives you so much variety that you won’t know what to do with yourself. […]

When I scheduled this Pike Place engagement session with Andrea and PK, no one knew what the weather was going to be like (story of my life), but we lucked out so hard. We even saw sunshine! Andrea and PK brought Andrea’s brother’s girlfriend along, and she was a delight. Thank you for the chats and […]

This Rattlesnake Lake engagement session almost didn’t happen. We were all set to go to Mt. Rainier instead, but Washington had other ideas. With snow, rain, and a freaking avalanche warning in the forecast, we put a pin in the mountain and instead drove out to North Bend, WA. And I’m stoked that we did. I […]

Engagement session outfits have long been a source of frustration for many couples. And I get it! These are likely the photos you’ll use to announce your engagement (if you haven’t right away), the photos you’ll look back on years down the line as you reminisce about this time in your lives. You don’t want […]

Engagement session outfits: what to wear

I’ve seen various sand dunes engagement photos before, and I’ve always tucked that at the back of my mind. “I bet we could take some rad photos at the sand dunes, given the chance…” Here’s the thing though: you have to make your own chances. Or at least,  you have to seize them when they’re […]

I love a good redwoods engagement session. I’ve done several in the last few months, and I’m stoked every time. This time, though, I wanted to find somewhere new for Christina and Nick, somewhere I hadn’t been before. I found a more remote spot, we decided to gamble on both the minimal parking and the […]

Redwoods engagement session and hike

It’s weird, the things that draw people together.  After a Google search, Topher and Steve came across my website and noticed that I was really into plants. And they were like, “Hey we like her work, and we’re super into plants too.” Only. Their plant collection more than ten times the size of mine. I’m talking […]
