I love Engagement Sessions as it’s so important to me to know my Brides and Grooms well before the big day! We had to reschedule this session a few times as it was raining and then voila we could not have asked for a more perfect day at Golden Gardens Park in Seattle. The sun was shining bright, the leaves were gorgeous colors, and not only did I have a fun couple to photograph I got to meet their sweet German Sheppard.
Rachel designed the cutest frames for the shoot with their wedding date to add to their “Save the Dates” that they will be coming out with. I always love props and these were so cute! I already cannot wait to see what other touches she comes up with for their big day!
And, a little bit about Rachel and Tyson:
Rachel is an Administrative Assistant for an accounting firm and Tyson works for Boeing (3rd generation in his family). They have been dating for 8 years now. Rachel was a senior in high school when they met, Tyson had graduated the year before, but they did not know each other. They met through two good friends of theirs, and the rest as they say is history. They just bought their first home at the beginning of the year and spent two months remodeling and fixing it all up. It has been a labor of love for both of them! Rachel loves art and design so it’s been a wonderful way to put her own style and vision into it just for them. Tyson’s past work experience in building homes has been a great advantage for them, they were able to do a lot of the work themselves and with the help of family and friends.
One of the best decisions they ever made was to get Henry, their German Sheppard. They got him when he was 8 weeks old and now he is almost 5 years old! Henry has a lot personality and you always know what he is thinking from the look on his face or from his voice because he is very talkative; he will let you know what is on his mind. He loves to play outside and fetch and when he rests it is usually on the couch (when we are not in the room), very sneaky. He is a very important member of their family and they love him so much!
Rachel and Tyson are getting married in August 2012 and are very excited! They have known for a very long time they would get married someday and now it is just around corner. The ceremony will take place outside and the reception will be in a barn (country chic!), they are looking forward to celebrating with family and friends in a fun and beautiful atmosphere.
And, a few of my favs:
Thank you both so much! I had a blast getting to know you and just loved meeting your wonderful doggie!
