When we first met, Andrea and Eli told us that they found our business card on a bulletin board at my gym, which is also where they go to work out. So we knew immediately that they were in our neighborhood, but what we didn’t expect is that we’re practically next-door neighbors. They live not two blocks away from us and have the same love of Wallingford that we do. Andrea is also an avid runner (way more skilled than we ever were!) and together with Eli she’s founded her own charity to raise funds to increase scholarship opportunities for children with Down syndrome: Team William.
On sunny days, Andrea and Eli love to grab a cuban sandwich at Paseo and head to Golden Gardens beach park just outside Ballard, so that’s just what we did for their engagement session. It was probably THE nicest day this year we’d had so far, and the beach was packed, but we did our best to carve out a quiet spot for these two to share some time together. There was one truly amazing sunset over the Puget Sound that evening, shrouding the Olympic mountains and the beach in golden light. I hope it’s a peek of the summer to come!
We’re so excited to have met Andrea and Eli… it’s wonderful to know another young couple in the ‘hood with an active interest in our community. I’m really looking forward to their wedding this summer at the Seattle Tennis Club! Enjoy the photos, and if you want to see more, check out their engagement slideshow, too!
