I knew the first time I even talked on the phone with Julia I would just adore these two. 🙂 Being a dog lover myself and them having two sweet doggies I knew we had to include their “babies” in the Engagement Session. We had lots of laughs and started at their gorgeous house and played with the doggies in their backyard. They have the coolest hammock right in their backyard. I had them lay in it, and guess who wanted to join them….yep, their darling doggies. Well…once they both jumped up seconds later the hammock tipped and all of them ended up under it. (see the photo below) Everyone was ok of course, their was lots of laughs though! We then headed down to the Edmonds waterfront as the sun was setting. With these two coming from CA we had to get some glistening sun photos and we couldn’t have picked a better day.

Now a little bit about the couple: 

Julia is a Marketing Administrator at Windermere Real Estate and server at Arnies in Edmonds and Jeremy is a General Manager at Big 5 Sporting Goods. They met at Mort’s Pizza in Felton, CA.  Julia was the best worker (according to her at least) and Jeremy was her manager. 🙂 They have been dating for almost nine years now and have known each other for 10.  They are best friends first and foremost and recently bought a house together in Edmonds, WA.  It was their sweet doggies that really pushed them to buy so that they could have a big back yard for them to play in.  So they worked really hard to save up for a down payment on a house.  They found their dream house and couldn’t be happier! Jeremy proposed right after they signed the papers on the house.  He totally surprised her on the front porch and got down on one knee.  She was totally surprised and said “YES” of course!

When they have free time together (not that often) they love to take the doggies for walks around the neighborhood.  They are their babies and I must say they are darling!   Forest and Chloe are truly loved!   Forrest was their “First born” Julia realized that Forest needed a friend so Chloe came 6 months later.  They love them a lot but they love each other even more!  Country music has become a big love of ours as well.  Brooks and Dunn, Jason Aldean, Sugarland are their favorites.  They love eating out and love being home-bodies.  They love snuggling in front of the tv with a blanket and a good movie.  Forest usually joins us them in their snuggling.They started as two very different people, but as time progressed they have become more and more like each other.  Jeremy used to not like pie or sweets, and now he does.  (Although not as much as Julia!) Julia now knows the starting lineup for the New York Yankees, something she never would have known before.  Jeremy used to play baseball and he is the biggest jock you will ever meet.  (Go Yanks!)  He also is really into the UFC and Julia is becoming a big fan as well.  They have gone to two UFC events, one in Vancouver and one in Portland and both were a blast! They can’t wait to share their big day this Summer with all of their close family and friends at the beautiful Bear Creek Country Club.

Here are just a few of my FAVS:


The dogs thought it would be a good idea to join in on the fun…

This is then what happened…

LOL… everyone was OK but we couldn’t stop laughing…

So the dog’s were put inside for bit and still couldn’t resist watching…

I’m very excited to share there big day with them at the beautiful Bear Creek Country Club this Summer.
