We are expecting a baby in May, and so I’m on a crusade to do a bit of “nesting” here on the blog as well as around the house before I go radar silent when she arrives. I have a TON of engagement sessions and weddings from the last year an a half to share, so I’m going to make it a project to post one a week (in no particular order) for a little while. So much laughter, light, and love to show off!
Let’s start with these summer engagement images of Lurline and Murray, taken in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood, where they live. We love creating shoots around the things that couples like to do together — a sort of “double date” where we visit favorite places and do favorite things. Here, we started off with cocktails and Q&A to help us get reacquainted at Noble Fir’s happy hour, before wandering Ballard’s Old Town nooks and crannies, and taking a scenic stroll through Golden Gardens at sunset. In part, we recreated Lurline and Murray’s first date… and captured new memories along the way!
Murray is an old college friend — we went to both J-School and the Honors College at the University of Oregon together! Like so many couples we see these days, these two soulmates found each other online and shared a love of classical music (listening AND playing) and fine food (Seattle foodies unite!). They both contribute awesome things to the world: Murray owns a letterpress design studio here in Seattle and Lurline is a teacher. And, of course, they complement each other in ways that it warms my heart to see. Lurline and Murray, I’m so happy you found each other. Thank you for inviting us along to capture your engagement and your wedding vows. We’re so happy to have you as a part of our lives. May your future hold countless sunsets and microbrews!
