Engagements always bring me so much joy. It’s always clear to see how happy and excited couples are to take the next step in building their lives together. On a beautiful day in June, I met Max and Zhanna at Discovery Park to capture their new love and their first photos together as an engaged couple. I could tell even before the shoot that this couple was willing to do anything to get the shot. I love when clients are willing to take risks as I love when a new idea or a spontaneous pose results in the most unique photo of the day.
Just a few years ago I was doing Larissa's sister's wedding, and now she's getting married to Peter.
Time really does fly...
Peter and Larissa met as bridesmaid and groomsman at her sister Yana's wedding. I don't know if anyone could've predicted it, but everyone involved couldn't be happier. They're awesome.
Downtown Seattle is an explosion of beauty. Skyscrapers, brick alleyways, cute coffee shops, the list endless which is why I love taking photos there. This time I was fortunate enough to be asked to take some engagement pictures in Pioneer Square. Pioneer Square is a staple area of Seattle. Beautiful old building surrounds the area with little boutiques offering all kinds of goods, it’s perfect.
The day was gorgeous. We were able to get some sunshine to break through the clouds of Seattle for once. The sun lit up the surrounding area making the vine covered bricks pop.
