Amy and John's Vashon Island Engagement Session on Film

It's certainly not everyday I get to take a ferry boat ride or visit a lighthouse.  For Amy and John's engagement session I got to do both in a matter of one day and it was a dream come true!  We took the Fauntleroy ferry to Vashon Island and I fell in love! 

I love having the chance to photograph a couple's engagement session before their wedding, like I did for Amy and John.  It is a chance for us to laugh and get to know each other before the wedding day.  I see photographing an engagement session before the wedding as a kind of ice breaker.  My couple gets to see how much fun it can be being photographed (truly, it's an experience of connection between you and your honey!), and bonus, you'll get gorgeous photos and the anticipation for your wedding will only build.  I'm a fan!

Justine and Eric's Ace Hotel Downtown Portland Engagement Session on Film

Eric and Justine wanted their engagement session to feel like a relaxed date in their favorite PNW city, Portland.  We started off at the Stumptown Coffee for a latte and NY Times crossword puzzle and then walked over to the Ace Hotel's cozy lobby to take some more photos.  The Ace hotel lobby has a photo booth which is an absolute must if you're out and about in downtown Portland.  I love this engagement session for so many reasons.  Not only are Eric and Justine absolutely adorable, but their whole session felt so cozy and special.  Happy fall, you guys! 

Brittany and Jason's Washington Gorge Holiday Session on Film

I shot Brittany and Jason's holiday photos at St. Cloud Wayside in the Gorge on the Washington side.  Brittany is an incredible film photographer, insane go-getter (MPH student), animal lover (see her cute pup Emmy Lou below!), and one of the absolute sweetest people you'll ever meet.  St. Cloud's is an old apple orchard.  In the fall you'll find fallen apples, crispy leaves, swaths of mist, and a dreamy view of the Gorge and Columbia River.  The perfect place to capture fall in the Pacific Northwest.
