Sometimes an engagement session calls for tossing on some Patagonia gear and your running shoes and hiking through an awesome park in Bellevue. Jessica+Nick were in town from Eastern Washington and wanted to take a break out in nature and we were totally down.
Megan+Rick are pretty dang stylish. They put on this whole bit about being so nervous for the shoot and then they show up on this perfectly crisp fall day looking pretty awesome and full of tons of cuddling and lovey moments for us to shoot. Yes, everyone: this is what "nervous" looks like.
Why yes, Carolyn+Daniel, we WILL meet you at a trendy Cap Hill bar to kick off your engagement session. This was the right decision for a myriad of reasons, including prepping all four of us for the ridiculous downpour we'd be jockeying with all shoot. Luckily C+D were major troopers, and we were carrying our trusty see-through umbrella. We're crazy excited to see these guys again when they journey back from Chicago for their wedding in March.
When we started chatting about e-sesh ideas with Ryan+James they had everything planned out. It was to be a whimsical, adventurous afternoon full of paper crowns and adventurer gear. There would be telescopes and suitcases and lanterns and tons of goofing around. It was basically awesome, and so perfectly timed as the rain started falling right about the time we finished up, giving us just enough time to grab a couple cute umbrella shots before calling it a day.
Carrie and Phil had a truly unique vision for the design of their wedding and the more they told us their plans, the more excited we were to see it all come together!
The ceremony was a true winter wonderland with a line of trees lit up at the front of the alter inside of the beautiful, modern Axis Pioneer Square. Artwork by Justin Kane Elder adorned the brick walls. Stunning orange floral arrangements were artfully placed around the reception area, down the candle-lit aisle, and wrapped around metal sphere chandeliers. Ruckus Deluxe, a band from Canada, played fun covers that had everyone dancing. There were so many amazing elements it’s hard to list them all! It was just such beautiful and festive day and we loved capturing it! Congrats C+P!//Josh+Ali Read more…
