I am excited to share with you a collection of photographs from my recent shoot in Seattle, Washington with Mark and Emily. This was especially fun because this was my first trip back to Seattle after living there for nearly two years. It was a perfect way to visit, I got to shoot this lovely couple, hung out with some friends and ate some Serious Pie, OH and you know, hung out with Joe Grimes!! No complaints here!!
I felt so lucky and excited to get to chat with him along with some other amazing photographers. I think the most important thing I took from him was the importance of personal projects, styled shoots and using models for promotional or personal work! Beyond that, he was full of incredible advice and some amazing experiences! I was super impressed and I hope our paths cross again!
Ok, back to the shoot, this was such a blast! We met up at the Olympic Sculpture Park right near the waterfront and ran around for a while just taking pictures, playing amongst the sculptures! It was so much fun, I’ve spent so much time in that park and I had never gotten a chance to do a shoot there, I finally get to check that off my list. It was perfect!
This shoot with Mark and Emily so much fun, time flew by and I absolutely loved every moment! I knew Mark back in the day, but I had not gotten to meet Emily, it was such a treat to meet her and to see them as a couple! While driving up to Seattle, I wondered who this girl was who my friend had fallen for, I knew she would have to be fun, relaxed and have a great sense of humor to be a great fit. Turns out she was all those things and more! Right from the start, I could tell they loved each other, fit together well and had fun together. They were constantly making each other laugh, I love seeing that in a couple, they just have a knack for relaxing one another. I absolutely love getting to witness couples in love and to be a part of their build up to the wedding. It’s such a wonderful time in each person’s life and I get to be there to document it! I was so very touched to be a part and a witness to this couple’s awesomeness!
