This is Vanessa and Justin. These two met online and fostered their love across two state lines and many mountains and deserts and plains. Vanessa is from Maple Valley, WA and Justin is from Bearmouth, MT – Spokane just happened to be their place to see each other in between and where Justin proposed to Vanessa earlier this Spring.

Vanessa is the best friend of one of my best friend’s cousins (truly not as complicated as it sounds, we just have a connection!) And I was absolutely thrilled when she contacted me about doing engagement photos in the city they were engaged in. Bob and I absolutely adore this couple. During our session in the Rose Garden in Manito Park and our dinner together afterward, we got to learn about their love for God and each other and how all the details of their big day were coming together perfectly. We will be cheering them on from afar as they are married in the mountains just outside of Missoula this coming Saturday!

These two were all smiles with Justin’s zany personality and the connection they shared. We are excited to see them grow in their marriage as they make their faith the cornerstone of their relationship together!

Bainbridge Ferry + Ballard || Seattle, WA Engagement Session

What happens when you schedule a photo session with this awesome couple in the almost always rainy and dreary city of Seattle? You get sunshine, of course!

Introducing Kate and Robert. This lovely and adventurous couple live in Kirkland; we connected with them as they were searching for wedding vendors for their Spokane wedding, set for October 1st of this year. They met at the marketing firm where they both work in Seattle. They love traveling and visiting Seattle beaches with their sweet dog Henry! They were engaged on Halloween of last year, at a friend’s party – with Kate dressed as Princess Buttercup and Robert dressed as Wesley from The Princess Bride; I have to say, the cutest engagement story ever!

We started out our adventurous engagement session on a ferry from Bainbridge Island to Seattle…

We aimed to capture some beautiful and authentic photos of the love they share on the short ride over to Seattle.

After the ferry ride, we enjoyed an slam dunk dinner at a burger joint in Ballard before heading up to a park just north of Ballard called Carkeek Park. This provided some beautiful pictures with the greenery and some fun pictures on the beach!

These two are high school sweethearts! Tristen has been serving in the military. Since he was home for a short while over the holidays, we did a New Year’s Day Engagement Session with them in the snow along Lake Coeur d’Alene in North Idaho. Was it cold? Um, YES!! If I remember correctly, the temperatures were in the teens – but we broke out the blankets and these guys were rockstars in the snuggling department. We had a lot of fun with them and can’t wait for their wedding in Deer Park in July of 2016!
