It’s been another busy weekend here. I had Erica and Rodney’s wedding on Saturday (teasers coming in a few days!) and then yesterday afternoon I met up with Kris and Chris for their engagement session. Kris and Chris are madly in love … with Georgetown! I’d never been to the area before, but after just five minutes of looking around I was smitten too. It’s a pretty small area, but it’s packed full of cool bars and pubs, an upscale coffee shop, a very cool looking record store and tons of red bricks, dirty allies, graffiti and other photo-friendly stuff. Heaven!
I met up with Kris and Chris at one of their favorite hang outs, Jules Maes Saloon. They drank a couple of beers and played some pinball while I ogled the decor. I particularly loved the wall with the old piano, wall clock and stuffed animals. We then headed out for a wander around the streets, and took some shots in a gorgeous old doorway at the old Georgetown Brewhouse, by a graffiti-covered wall and underneath the bright yellow scooter.
Next, we headed over to the famous hat ‘n’ boots in nearby Oxbow Park. I couldn’t resist snapping a fisheye pic of their boots on the boots. Yes, I’m silly … The boots turned out to be a pretty good prop though – I love the shots of them snuggling up between the two boots, and I used one of the boots as a platform so I could finally get a bit of a height advantage!
We finished off our session back at the pub, this time at the 9lb Hammer. After a delicious pint of Manny’s I took a final couple of portraits under the ‘Sweet Adoline’ painting. Thanks Kris and Chris for being great sports, and for buying me a pint of my favorite beer in the world!
To Kris and Chris;
Great Pics!!! Loved them all.Very original. See you both in 4 days.
Get outta here, Krissy! We’re sitting in our Metry living room looking at your fabulous engagement pics, and missing you dearly! Can’t wait for the big party in Seattle. You two sure are lovey-dovey 🙂
