I always love photographing couples but this one is extra special! I have photographed Rachel many times; photographing her family, her high school senior photos, and now an Engagement Session. Yeah! Rachel is just adorable and her fiancé is so very sweet. I loved every second with these two love birds. We headed to Gas Works Park, which I have photographed many times at this location, but I have never seen it as crowded as it was on this day. We had to dodge, trapeze artists, bicyclists, dogs, and kite flyers, but we made it work!
And, a little bit about the couple:
Brandon and Rachel met through basketball. They both enjoy watching sports together as well as playing them. They like to workout together, and when they go out to eat they almost always get sushi. Brandon is currently working at Costco and is interested in golf as well as many other sports… but it’s mainly golf. Rachel has been playing a little basketball and going to school at Bellevue College along with working as a nanny.
Brandon proposed one night when Rachel went to the store, when she came back he had a dozen roses leading into the living room. All of the furniture was pushed aside and there was a chair in the middle with a heart shape of red votive candles around it on the floor. There was a note that said to sit in the chair, close her eyes, and wait. She waited, Brandon came in, grabbed her hands, and gave a little speech, and proposed. Of course she said YES! How fun!
Here are some of my FAVS:
I am very excited for you both and for your wedding next summer!
