A + N “Engagement Session”

A couple of weeks ago I met Amelia and Nikody and we had a fun evening walking around the Seattle Center Area, photographing them on the carousel, eating cotton candy, and hanging out by the international fountain. Nothing can top a beautiful day here in Seattle when we have sunshine!

I wanted to share a little bit about this fun couple Amelia and Nikody. They have been together for about 1 1/2 years, and met online on  Nikody is a software developer, and Amelia is a teacher.  They have two cats, and live walking distance from where we met for the photoshoot. Talk about an amazing location to live in! They love to spend time exploring Seattle, walking around the various neighborhoods, and discovering out-of-the-way shops, cafes, restaurants, etc.. Separately, Nikody also really enjoys cooking, and coming up with new recipes.  While Amelia does a lot of textile arts, that include sewing and knitting.

They are going on a Caribbean cruise for there honeymoon, as well as spending a couple days in Miami! They both really like to travel, and last year they took a trip down to Napa Valley for wine tasting. They drove down the coast, and camped along the beach before arriving to their destination.

Here is a slideshow of some of  my favs!

I’ve been having fun working with these two, especially since their WEDDING is just days away! Their location to “tie the knot” is really beautiful, and is at a very peaceful location away from the Seattle city life. Can’t wait to photograph your BIG DAY!

Thanks again so much! Rachelle

L+ J “Engagement Session”

I had a wonderful evening photographing this fun couple, and hanging out with their darling son! We started at Marymoor Park, and then headed down to Lake Sammamish. We had lots of fun walking around, laughing, playing with their son, running after the ducks, and  talking about their upcoming wedding plans.

Jesse and Lauren met in 2006, and are getting married in a couple of months! They are very laid back, and so easy going, and always have smiles on their faces. One year after their relationship started, they received an unexpected yet amazing surprise that would change both of their lives in so many ways…they were going to be parents. That wonderful surprise was an adorable little blonde haired boy named Carter.

This couple loves to spend time just “being together” for date nights, hanging out watching their favorite shows after Carter goes to bed, or taking the little one to play at the river. They live in the country, and enjoy peacefulness, and love to barbeque in their backyard. Lauren, is very luck to be a stay at home Mommy, and she fills her time with her craft business, is a MaryKay Rep, and also teaches fitness classes. Jesse works for his family’s freight forwarding company which is a home-based business, and he loves to play golf.

Carter just turned 2, loves to play outside, and with his grandparents, he is a water baby, and loves the color yellow. He just learned to count to ten, and loves to go watch Mommy teach her fitness classes, where he can show off his yoga poses. (which he calls oga) Carter is going to be their ring barrer for their wedding, and he is the most important guest on this very special day!
