I met Jennifer at the January Bridal show put on by! Jenn and her husband, Mark, were both one of my big weekend winners. I had fun meeting them and figuring out the details of the session plus I was able to hear their details about their wedding day. We headed downtown to EMP. These two lovebirds didn’t let the freezing cold stop them.

Now a little bit about the couple:
Mark enjoys hunting (big game and waterfowl), fishing, golf, and camping with family and friends. Mark is also a huge Seattle sports fan (Seahawks, Mariners, Sounders FC, and hopefully an NBA team soon). He works at a local Seattle Ad agency for the past 5 years, and is currently an Account Director focused on their Microsoft line-of-business. He has been enamored with Jenn from the minute he met her their freshman year of college at Western Washington University, and he cannot wait to start their lives together.

Jenn enjoys music, 4-wheeling, watching basketball, the outdoors, socializing with friends and family, and playing with her friends’ children during her spare time. She is a passionate educator at a Vancouver, WA elementary school, where she teaches 1st grade. She’s been in education for four years, and loves the smiles she gets from each and every one of her students. Jenn has an infectious personality, and undeniably is the light of Mark’s life.

Mark and Jenn met through a mutual friend while in college at Western Washington University. They instantly started a friendship and as it progressed, Mark graduated and moved to Seattle – and the two eventually lost touch. Four years later Jenn (now living in Vancouver, WA) went up to Bellingham, WA to visit friends from college, and Mark coincidentally was there that same weekend. The two reconnected, and after a couple weeks of texting and late night phone conversations, Jenn came up to visit Mark and they recognized they were meant for each other. In January of 2012, Mark proposed to Jenn by having her meet him at the lobby of the Bellevue Place building, and had 11 of his coworkers (one of which was videotaping everything with a head mounted go-pro camera) randomly walk up to her as she was waiting for Mark who was “running late” and handed her a rose. Mark was the final one to walk up and hand her a rose, and the rest is history. 🙂

Mark and Jenn are getting married in August in Vancouver, WA. They will be having a mini-honeymoon as Jenn will be hurrying to prepare for a new school year, with a full honeymoon in December. They’re so excited to start their lives together, and cannot wait to see what the future has in store for them.

Here are some of my FAVS:


I had a blast with you guys and have had so much fun getting to know you both! Thanks so much for an afternoon of laughs. 🙂 I enjoyed every minute of it!

Thanks again and happy planning!
