I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving. I know I did! So much delicious food, wonderful family time and relaxation. I just can't believe it's already December! To start of the month, I have some beautiful engagement photos to share with you. This sweet couple, getting married next fall in Woodinville, chose to have their engagement session at Seward Park. They used to take walks there together when they first started dating and I can see why. With the lovely forest trails, waterfront beaches and Seattle skyline views, it truly has a full sampling of everything that city-living in the Northwest has to offer. We headed out in November for the last leaves of fall. I love how these turned out and I'm so glad to be a part of this couple's wedding festivities. Congrats you two!

In honor of Apple Cup yesterday (the annual matchup of University of Washington and Washington State University football teams) I wanted to post this adorable photo from a family photo session last weekend. It's holiday card season and families everywhere are trying to choose the perfect photographs to send out to their relatives across the country. I can't think of a better image from the great state of Washington than of these cute little cousins wearing the opposing colors. I had a blast with this family! (Oh and in case you wonder who won the game, it was the Huskies :) ) Go Dawgs!

Seattle is one of the most amazing cities. I love all of the unique neighborhoods, restaurants, environments, activities and yes, even the cloudy weather. My job allows me not only to meet some incredible people that live here, but it also allows me to explore new places - and who doesn't love that? As a photographer, I'm constantly inspired by what's around me. That brings me to the story of Randall and Beth. I knew I would get along with these two from the start as they are both really into adventuring and exploring. All you have to do is check out the beautiful photography on Randall's website to see that. I've found that everyone I meet has places in Seattle that are close to their heart. It's such a large diverse city that it's easy to find your own little corner. This engagement session was spent near where Randall and Beth feel comfortable - in Fisherman's Terminal. There's something so magical about walking through the rows of those enormous fishing boats. Each one has a story and each one has been through it's own trials and errors out on the open sea. The smell of the salty air, the soft creaking of the dock, the sound of the seagulls. It's a beautiful place and I was so excited to have the opportunity to take photos there. Afterwards we walked along the Fremont Canal to admire the last of the beautiful fall leaves. Seeing new settings and meeting new people makes me so grateful for the business that I have grown the past few years and the opportunity to be doing something that I love. Here are just a few images from this wonderful couple's engagement session. Congratulations Randall & Beth!

This fall has seriously been amazing! I've been meeting so many new and fun couples, booking Washington weddings for next summer, and of course, shooting a lot of photos with the beautiful fall leaves in various locations around this amazing city. Mike & Kendahl's session was one of many from the last two weeks. We toured a little bit around the Arboretum, spent some time wandering around Husky Stadium (go dawgs!) then went and walked through our favorite campus ever. You can't look at these images and tell me that you don't think University of Washington has one of the most beautiful campuses around. I just love that place. Anyway, I had some serious fun with these two and I'm just in love with, well, all of their photos. Congrats to Mike & Kendahl! :)
