Welcome to the blog! I’m a small-town Florida girl and Army wife relocated to the Seattle Suburbs, documenting love from one coast to the other. I live for a good PNW mountain breeze, sweat pants, and local eats. Let's be friends!
We may be in the thick of winter here but these two are taking me back to fall with their fall engagement session in North Bend, WA and I am not one bit upset about it. The colors, the light, these two….pure magic!
Andrea and Andrew’s session was so special, celebrating both their engagement and time here in the PNW. They’ll be moving to Arizona soon but really wanted to make sure they documented their time living here in the PNW. We decided on the North Bend area to take advantage of the fall foliage and views of both the water and mountains. The field we ended at has quickly become one of my favorite locations, especially during the fall. It’s easy to access and also one that doesn’t require a hike. The tall grass, golden light, and views of Mount Si don’t get any better than this!
In the days leading up to Andrea and Andrew’s session, the weather was not looking great. No surprise there! With torrential downpours, heavy winds, and a 50/50 chance it would clear by the time their session started, Andrea and Andrew decided to take the risk. And you guys, where there is a risk, there is sometimes a high reward! Literally minutes before they arrived, the rain stopped and the winds calmed. It made for the most beautiful engagement session.
I’ve photographed hundreds of couples and with each one, I am reminded of why I love documenting love. It sounds so cheesy, but it’s true. When you’re able to just relax, be with your person, and have fun, the most beautiful moments come to life. I am just so darn thankful to the couples that have entrusted me with those moments!
“Thank you doesn’t even begin to feel like enough! You captured the essence of us in such a real, emotional, and creative way. So grateful for the time and energy that you put into this gallery. We can’t wait to share the photos with family and friends and will cherish them forever.” – Andrea
