Who says you have to cancel just because it is raining!? Rain and grey skies are just something we learn to deal with here in the Pacific Northwest. Everyone wants those lovely hazy light photos (which I adore), but sometimes Mother Nature just does NOT want to cooperate. Normally, I probably would have rescheduled, but this amazing couple was coming up from Portland for their Seattle engagement photos and we just had to make it work… and I love the results!
Can I just say how much I adore these two?! They have a really precious story and are apparently known for travelling everywhere. I think they told me they lived in like 4 different places (as in cities across the country, people!) within the course of a year. I’m simultaneously jealous and amazed. I love love LOVE to travel, but I also get really attached and sentimental really easily so it would be very hard for me to actually live in a bunch of different places. I’m amazed by anyone that can do that… and a bit jealous.
And, remember how I said I would never photograph a wedding because I am not a wedding photographer? Well, I lied. I’ve agreed to photograph Anna and Trevor’s wedding this August and I am so excited. Anna and I have very similar taste and she and Trevor were SO GOOD in front of my camera. I’ve been so pleased to be able to share in telling their story; for this shoot we wandered around Capitol Hill in Seattle since this neighborhood is special to them and their relationship. We started at Stumptown Coffee while it was rainy and overcast and by the time we decided to start walking to Molly Moon’s Ice Cream as we had planned, it was sunny and gorgeous (almost TOO sunny for photos at this time of day) but the rest of Seattle decided they needed ice cream as well, so we didn’t end up stopping (I desperately want to do a shoot at Molly Moon’s! If you want to take me up on this, I’ll treat you to Molly Moon’s during your session! Email me so we can set it up… how fun would Summer ice cream photos be?!) and just snapped a couple outside in front of their adorable shop. Then we headed to the park to take advantage of the sun.
It really was a lovely session that incorporated places that were special to Anna and Trevor. I love that these photos show their relationship and will have deeper meaning to those that know them but are just plain lovely to look at for anyone that happens to see them, whether you know the couple or not.
