Spring Lake Cushman Engagement Photos | Seattle Wedding Photographers

Olympic National Park | Adventure Session

Sarah and Parker reached out to us from Florida asking us for something a bit different than what they could get in the Sunshine State. They were making a trip to the PNW and having just gotten engaged, they were hoping to have a session during their trip.Since it was still early spring, we suggested Lake Cushman. Year round it has something unique to offer as an incredible spot for a session. Spring is one of our favorite times at the lake for engagement photos. True to form, the area was coated in the lush green trimmings of spring foliage that make the PNW so unique. Lake Cushman has a little bit of everything for PNW lovers. Tall trees, moss covered logs, giant boulders, and mountains peeking in and out of the clouds.

We could tell these two Florida natives were having a great time taking in the landscape around them. They got an incredibly iconic PNW day. Everything was moody and threatening rain but we never saw a drop. These two were champs in front of the camera. Concentrating on each other and laughing their way through all our prompts.

As the session wrapped up, Sarah and Parker told us about this incredible photo project of theirs that consisted of small video clips from their world travels. They record about 1 second of video of all the fun parts of their trips. We thought it would be fun to take a clip of them, but they actually asked us if we’d be in it! We’re honored to have been a part of their engagement, and trip to Washington. The session was a wrap, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have gotten to know these two shooting their engagement photos at Lake Cushman.

Romantic Snowy Engagement Photos | Seattle Wedding Photographers

Adventure Session | Mount Rainier National Park

These two told us early on they were picturing warm, romantic snowy engagement photos in a winter wonderland. That is is no short order for a December engagement session at Mt Rainier National Park. Thankfully, their schedules allowed us to be just flexible enough to avoid a huge snowstorm, and head out to the mountain the very next day, which was sunny! Mount Rainier absolutely shines on a sunny, snowy day. And they can be fairly rare.

This session was easily one of our favorites from last year. The weather was perfect and Julia and James were absolutely adorable together. Even though we spent a lot of time trudging around in the snow (and trust us, there was a lot of it!) no one really minded the freezing temperatures. We made it to the Paradise area just in time for sunset. While everyone was heading back down the mountain from enjoying their day of snowshoeing, skiing, or sledding – we knew the view of the mountain was just getting good.

Everything doesn’t come together quite this perfectly all the time, but when it does we are thrilled to share images like these.

Mount Rainier Winter Engagement Photos | Seattle Wedding Photographers

Adventure Session | Mount Rainier National Park

Corinne and Brandon traveled up to us for their Mount Rainier winter engagement photos, which generally makes us a little nervous, but especially in the winter months. Will it rain? Will the snow be too heavy? Will they close the mountain passes? We always want to be sure we make an adventure session an awesome experience for a couple, and hate having to make back up plans due to weather.

Thankfully, the weather for their adventure session in Mount Rainier National Park was as perfect as could be. The sun was wonderfully warm (in color, the temperature was still in the teens) and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. This made for some really fun light to work with in the woods around the Nisqually entrance to the park as well as the Longmire area.

If we haven’t said it enough already, snow makes everything more magical. We took full advantage of all the snowy vistas with these two, who wandered hand in hand up and down multiple snowbanks all session long. The warm light complimented their warm personalities and all the cuddly poses we set them up in to keep warm!

Seattle Ferry Engagement Photos | Seattle Wedding Photographers

Seattle Engagement Photos | Pioneer Square | Safeco Field | Seattle Ferry

It isn’t often we’re in Seattle for a session, but we were really excited for these Seattle ferry engagement photos, with a stop in between at Pioneer Square and Safeco Field. Most of the time we love to get out of the city and go somewhere more natural, like a State or National Park. Since Alissa and Sean are getting married in Olympic National Park next year, they wanted to showcase Seattle in their engagement photos for a little change of pace. We took the ferry into the city and got to know each other over some drinks in the galley, before walking to one of our favorite parts of Seattle – Pioneer Square, to start their session. Photographically, we love all the texture the Pioneer Square neighborhood has to offer. From the brick streets, to bright storefronts and walls of ivy, and yes, even a dingy alleyway. We even had our fair share of excitement when we witnessed the baseball bat stolen from the statue outside of Safeco Field. (The statue we were making our way towards for photos – we had to get creative with some composition so you couldn’t tell it was missing!) After that excitement, we caught a ferry back to the Peninsula, and photographed a very windy fall sunset from the front of the ferry – something that has been on our bucket list for a while.

Bainbridge Engagement Photos | Kitsap Wedding Photographers

Elizabeth & Dayton | Bainbridge Engagement Photos

This was our first time photographing an engagement session at Grand Forest West on Bainbridge Island. If we’re being honest, we’d never even set foot inside the park before the session. We actually found the location using Google Maps. About once a year we get a little restless offering up and shooting at the same locations. There are almost an infinite number of places to photograph, but most of the time the better known spots closer to Seattle get used more often! So, we go on a search to find some new locations to add to our repertoire. Sometimes we go driving, and other times we go virtual driving on Maps! Our initial thought about Grand Forest West was, “hey, this could be a cool spot with trees.” (That may even have been how we described it to Elizabeth & Dayton!) But we were pleasantly surprised that the park offered so much more than we thought! It was a chilly January day but we had so much fun exploring a small section of the trails with these two. They kept each other warm and smiling – and the sun even joined us for a bit!

Pioneer Square Engagement Photos | Seattle Wedding Photographers

Katelin & John | Pioneer Square Engagement Photos After Dark

Pioneer Square is one of our favorite spots in Seattle for engagement photos. It becomes even better after dark when the lights in the trees are on and we love to take advantage of it each year. We didn’t think it could get any better until Katelin and John mentioned bringing their VW along for the session! We met them in Pioneer Square just after sunset. Thankfully, there weren’t many crowds passing through and we had the street almost totally to ourselves. Katelin and John cued up a playlist from their phone – which we have never thought of doing – and we had some awesome background music while we set up shots. Shooting entirely after dark is fun and incredibly unique, but does take more time than when we work with just natural light. Thankfully Joe is awesome with lights, and we have a trick or two up our sleeves for these photos. After a bit, we got brave enough to drive the VW right into the square so we could photograph it under the twinkling lights as well. Everyone hanging out at The London Plane that evening had quite the show from us! We love the romantic feel the brick streets and lights in the trees give these photos. And especially that Katelin and John were totally relaxed and fun to work with!

Scenic Beach Engagement Photos | Kitsap Wedding Photographers

Jen & Sara | Sunrise Scenic Beach Engagement Photos

We could barely believe that the sun came out for Jen & Sara’s Scenic Beach engagement photos! It was raining for their original session date, so we picked another day and crossed our fingers. We were meeting in Seabeck for a sunrise session, so we were really hoping for a nice morning. Those have been few and far between this winter! Thankfully, and surprisingly, the sun was up and bright as can be. Just because the sun was out, didn’t mean it was warm. But, we made sure Jen & Sara could stay cuddled up together most of the session. Not much is better than waking up to the bright sunshine streaming through the trees, being able to photograph a super cool couple in love, and then immediately warming up with a large coffee from your favorite coffee shack. At least, that’s pretty ideal in our world!

Fall Lake Cushman Engagement Photos | Seattle Wedding Photographers

Caitlin & John | Moody Fall Lake Cushman Engagement Photos

The forecast for Lake Cushman was nothing but rain, so we e-mailed Caitlin and John and gave them some options. Rain can be so frustrating for engagement photos. Not to mention the low clouds that usually come with it and hide the mountains from sight! Most couples would rather reschedule than risk the wet, but we got an enthusiastic “let’s go for it!” back – so we did. Our ride to the lake was dry, but the second we got out of the car at Lake Cushman we felt some drops. Thankfully, just as we were thinking about discussing our options the rain stopped as quickly as it started – and stayed away for the whole session! As much as we want to hide from the rain and wait for the perfect sunny day, we’re glad we have the occasional couple who is all for risking that forecast and dragging us out. Rainy days have a very distinct look, and the darker and moody feel was an amazing contrast against the bright yellow fall leaves! Lake Cushman continues to be one of our all-time favorite spots. Especially when it’s with an adventurous couple who’s up for anything!

Silverdale Engagement Photos | Kitsap County Wedding Photographers

Heather & Bernie’s Adventure | Silverdale Engagement Photos on the Clear Creek Trail

When a couple asks if they can bring their dog, or dogs, to their session, we immediately get a little more excited. We are HUGE dog people (if you couldn’t tell…) and when we have to leave our own dogs at home to go to work, at least we know can love on someone else’s dogs! But don’t tell Sophie and Delilah, they’d be jealous. Heather and Bernie had two stipulations for their engagement photos – that there be a forest, and a field. We searched around the area and asked a few photographers if they knew of a location that had both, but nothing was quite clicking until we decided to go on a walk. In Silverdale there is an awesome trail system called the Clear Creek Trail (named after Clear Creek, which runs through town). We’ve walked on the parts along the waterfront, and knew there were gorgeous wooded sections, but we hit the jackpot when we took the dogs on a walk and found a gorgeous tall grass field, about a week before the session. Apparently we took fields for granted in Kansas, we didn’t realize a good, public field would ever be something hard to find! Long story short, the Clear Creek Trail provided us an amazing forest AND field location for Heather and Bernie’s engagement photos. But, they made the session absolutely magic with their ability to let go of any previous photography pretenses and smile, laugh, and be themselves with us. Sometimes one of the hardest parts of a session is breaking down those barriers to getting authentic emotions (and SMILES!) but with these two it was cake and the results are adorable.

Winter Franklin Falls Engagement Photos | Seattle Wedding Photographers

Amanda & Kenny’s Adventure | Winter Franklin Falls Engagement Photos

When Amanda and Kenny booked us for their wedding at a lodge in Easton, Washington, they also knew they wanted to go on an adventure for their engagement photos. Franklin Falls is a waterfall near Snoqualmie Pass. It is a relatively well known and easy hike in the summer. In the winter it becomes a little bit of a different story. Equipped with boots, micro spikes, and of course our high-clearance, all wheel drive vehicles – we went on the excursion to the icy, snowy, falls. It was a gorgeous winter morning, and the sun hadn’t fully burnt through the clouds when we met up at the end of the plowed portion of the forest service road. Our plan was to drive as far as we could through the snow, then hike the remaining distance to the falls. Being from Maine, I love driving in the snow, and Joe just loves taking the Subaru anywhere he can actually use its off-road features. It was a pretty sketchy drive, but somehow we only managed to get stuck once. The rest of the hike was much less eventful, chatting and getting to know each other (which is, admittedly, one of our favorite parts of the engagement session experience. And even more so with adventure sessions, since they usually include a longer hike). Each time we visit Franklin Falls through the winter, it presents us with a unique vista. Sometimes, the waterfall is almost completely frozen over, other times, the snow creates a huge bridge over the frozen river. This time, the warmer weather left us with a perfect little snow island out to the falls, while the river was almost completely melted out. Once we packed up at the falls, the sun peaked out from behind the clouds and the forest lit up beautifully, so of course we couldn’t help but grab “just a few more” during our hike out!
