Sunny Seattle Engagement Session: Katie + Bobby

May 17, 2008 | Engagements

Hurray for sunshine! I can’t believe that after months of dull, cold, miserable weather we had such an amazing day today. It was great timing – I met with Katie and Bobby late morning for their engagement session and although it was a little crazy at our first stop, Golden Gardens, it was so nice to be warm at the beach.

We started out in the sand dunes. I’m not sure what it is, but they’re a great fire-starter … Katie and Bobby immediately relaxed and the smooching began!

It all got a little too toasty (and sweaty!) so we tried a nice shady spot next. Katie wanted some photos of them being lions (or was it tigers?) in the long grass, and I love their expressions in the second photo!

On our way out we stopped at a couple of my favorite spots near the bath house. There’s something about those trees … and I loved the arched doorway in the bath house building (the shade was nice too!)

We decided to escape the crowds and head over to Fremont for the second part of our session. There’s an amazing photo and film studio there, and I loved the light coming onto the steps outside the building.

Next up was Fremont Outdoor Cinema, another favorite spot of mine. Bobby’s a hip hop DJ at KGRG 89.9, and I’m pretty sure the tattoo on his arm is a mic. How cool!

We took a few last snaps outside Theo Chocolate, and then Katie had to run off to work. Thanks for a super-fun session and see you for your wedding … in July 2009!
