This week’s engagement shoot was just spectacular!
First of all, Kim is a friend of a friend, so we already knew each other a little bit, and I’d met Adam already, both of which made things go smoother. Her and I are both detail-oriented (okay, anal-retentive) so we had the whole shoot planned out in advance—me with the techie stuff, and her with her hair, makeup, multiple outfits, locations, times, and so on.
To start, we hit Discovery Park in Seattle (where they got engaged), which is one of my all-time favorite spots in Seattle. We spend an hour-and-a-half shooting there, and at one point, we even illegally parked, in order to get “the shot” at the spot where they got engaged, with the lighthouse in the background. (Good fun!) After that, we drove across Lake Washington to Bellevue and went on their sailboat in Meydenbauer Bay and ate fish tacos. All that shooting made us hungry! Finally, we booked it back to Seattle to catch a lovely sunset at Alki Beach.
Here are some of my favorite shots from this photo session. Adam and Kim are a fun-loving couple who are not afraid to be in front of the camera, which makes our job easy! Rick and I cannot wait to shoot their wedding in six weeks at Semiahmoo Resort just south of the border (the Canadian border, that is) in Blaine, WA. Looking forward to the big day!
