Engagement Photography at the Center for Wooden Boats | Kelly + Oscar

All right! Now that things are slowing down for this season (and likely through the next), I can bombard you with a backlog of pictures on the blog. Starting with Kelly and Oscar!!

These two are and well and wed now, as of late this past summer, but we’d best begin at the beginning — with their engagement. Early in their relationship, Kelly and Oscar spent many a summer evening enjoying a glass of rich red wine on the prow of Kelly’s parents’ boat, a wooden Cris Craft full of charm. It was on one of these boat outings that Oscar proposed, and so it was only fitting that we spend some time with their family vessel to commemorate the occasion.

But first, before we boated, we met for a cocktail at the indelible Toulouse Petit Cajun restaurant on Queen Anne, where colorful Mardi Gras decorations adorned the walls. Then full of laughter and sated with fruity beverages, we roamed the Center for Wooden Boats near the Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI) on South Lake Union and admired the beautiful, lovingly cared-for wooden watercraft. Isn’t their family boat a lovely work of art? Thank you, Kelly and Oscar, for sharing your love and your sense of humor with us. We’re glad to know you!

Enjoy this cheerful snapshot of a wonderful couple, and Happy Holidays to you!

Queen Anne and Washington Park Arboretum Engagement | Brittany + Abby

I’ve been saving this beautiful set of engagement images for a time when the weather felt right and the wedding date was closer. For their session, Brittany and Abby wanted to stroll through several scenic, historic Seattle landmarks. We started off with a warm cup of coffee at Bustle Caffe to break the ice and to get to know each other better. Then, we walked along some of the city’s historic hidden staircases on Queen Anne hill where we were treated to a beautiful, bright sunset. As the light became softer, we ventured over to the waterfront trail of the Washington Park Arboretum near the University of Washington, where the girls changed in to super cute boots, dresses, and cardigans and we strolled through the mossy reeds and along picturesque boardwalks. They had to snuggle close to stay warm, but it was well worth the effort, wouldn’t you say?

Brittany and Abby, we are so looking forward to your wedding next January. Congratulations, and enjoy this walk down memory lane!!

Green Lake Engagement Photography | Liz + Aaron

Ahh, summers in Seattle. So sweet, so sunny, and so short. Here we are, almost come to the end of another summer with so many fond photographic memories from life, work, and travels over the last year. I have a HUGE slew of images to show off, and although in general they’ll be posted in no particular order, I’ll start just about where I left off: With our dear friends, Liz & Aaron celebrating their engagement at Green Lake Park. Their wedding has been many years in the making, and we were so happy for them when they tied the knot!

Volunteer Park Couples Portraits | Karly + Randy

As of Karly & Randy’s session, we’ve photographed all three sisters from this family and their spouses — Kayln + Mike, Heidi + Shawn, and now these two! They spent a sun-soaked afternoon last fall frolicking in the leaves at Volunteer Park, generally being gorgeous beyond belief, and totally being good sports about climbing trees and defacing brick walls with sidewalk chalk. These are just a few of our favorites from many more equally fantastic images. Thanks, Karly and Randy, and everyone else in the family, for trusting us to photograph your love stories. You’re amazing, beautiful, and an inspiration to us!
