Gas Works Park & Fremont Ship Canal Engagement Photography | Caitlin + Nate

Caitlin and Nate share a neighborhood (and an alma mater) with me, so I was really excited to do their engagement session in the place we call home– the Wallingford/Fremont divide. We ventured down to Gas Works Park for the first half of our session, while we waited for Justin to join us. Then, we took the dramatic photos you see below of Lake Union and the Tuesday Duck Dodge from the top of Kite Hill with Justin acting as the voice-activated lightstand for my off-camera flash. Such a cool effect we rarely use in daylight!

We wrapped up our shoot with a walk along the Ship Canal and Fremont bridge and a visit to the famous Fremont Troll– hitting almost all my favorite landmarks in the 1-mile radius of our homes.

Caitlin and Nate’s wedding is coming right up, on the weekend of the summer solstice, which is also the day of the Solstice Parade and Fremont Fair. Their wedding guests will have PLENTY to do, that’s for sure! We’re hoping for a beautiful first day of summer (and first day of marriage!) at the Great Hall on Green Lake with them. Congrats, Caitlin and Nate– we can’t wait to be there to celebrate with you!

Bellevue Downtown Park & Marymoor Engagement Photographs | Cassie + Matt

One of Cassie and Matt’s engagement photographs just today won an honorable mention from Junebug Wedding’s best of the best engagement photography competition! I’ve been wanting to share more of these images for a while, and since I’m working on their wedding album and thinking of them as I watch the spring rain out the window, now seems the perfect time.

Aside from being the cutest, smiliest couple ever, Cassie and Matt instantly endeared us when they asked if they could bring their Savannah Cat, Archer, to their session. Um, a half-wild cat that walks on a leash?!? Yes, please!! Archer was a complete doll, though he seemed a little confused about what we were doing and why, and could he please just explore without the camera in his face. After Archer had his family portrait captured, the rest of us enjoyed a perfect summer sunset on the Lake Sammamish trail at Marymoor Park where we wandered and captured the rest of the engagement session. Enjoy the images of love, laughter, and light we shared with these two!

Love at the Washington Park Arboretum | Brittany + Abby Engagement Teaser

Engagement session at the UW Botanic Gardens Washington Park Arboretum waterfront trail. Same-sex engagement photography in Seattle, Washington.

Straight from sun-baked Texas, Brittany and Abby braved the chill on a clear, cold evening in March to make the most lovely engagement portraits on Queen Anne Hill’s romantic hidden staircases and at the UW Botanic Gardens (Washington Park Arboretum’s waterfront trail). I had a wonderful time getting to know these two ladies, especially encouraging them to keep warm by snuggling up in the most adorable ways. We’re well on our way to their winter wedding next year, and I can’t wait to be there to help celebrate their love. (I think more keep-warm cuddles will be in order!)
