The season is starting up again and the first round couldn’t have been any better. Amy and Jonathan are friends who have been together since I have known them. Their brilliant minds crossed paths and resulted in a pairing full of laughter, scientific discussions and wit. I loved the engagement session we shared. I could literally watch these two for hours debate about scientific research. Speaking of, we started off in Amy’s lab at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and made our rounds throughout the amazing architecture. Following the colorful display of test tubes, we found ourselves on the streets of South Lake Union enjoying the best Spring has to offer with cherry blossoms in each direction.

We were staying warm just around the corner of Belmont and Pine inside Stumptown Coffee. Melinda and Ryan were kind enough to meet with me to talk about themselves and how they found each other. I could already tell they had amazing chemistry just by how much they laughed and finished each other’s sentences. Something that helps me is understanding what kind of couple they are so that I can take photos of them in that way. Do they like candids? are they the outdoor type? One question I asked was, “how would your friends describe you two?” Their response? “We’re a unit. Always together.” Beautiful. Together, including their GORGEOUS chocolate lab, we took to the park in Greenlake and Elliot Bay Park.
The stars aligned when Kimmy and Khang were traveling to New York on the same weekend as my visit! What else to do but spend the afternoon walking around Little Italy and Time Square to take some engagement photos. =)
“Bring your rain boots and bring an umbrella” I thought. Fortunately our luck brought us a nice Seattle overcast that scared away most of the tourists. Felise, Ben and I paid a visit to one of the more colorful historical spots in the city: the Gum Wall. We made our way to the Gum Wall to later discover two other wedding parties getting their photos taken as well. Who knew it was so popular?! In any case, Felise and Ben had something no other group had.. bubble gum! The ultimate prop for our occasion.
Once we literally wrapped up at the gum wall, we walked through Pike Place market and over to Olympic Sculpture Park for a fun last stop. Thank you Felise and Ben for being such amazing people. I don’t think I could have asked for a better “wave!”
