Lanaya and Zach are getting married in the middle of Lake Washington (their ceremony and reception will take place on the Virginia V steamship) but their engagement session was a little more conventional!
We started out a week and a half ago, on a sunny Thursday afternoon, at the University of Washington, where Zach is currently studying. Lanaya and Zach are avid readers, so we figured that Suzzalo Library would be a fitting place to start.
In the graduate reading room, we discovered a shared dark sense of humor as we found tome after tome of inappropriately titled books to pose with, but this one by Brian Hall is very sweet: ‘I Should be Extremely Happy in your Company’. Not so much the next one down …
After the reading room, we headed out into Red Square where the pigeons were out in force, and then up towards the law school where there was some interesting ‘music’ happening. Zach was pretty sure it was law school students singing karaoke …
After a mighty trek around the campus, we decided that the best of the light had gone, so we headed up to Madrona for some photos in their old neighborhood. I love the old laundromat there, with its lilac walls and checkered floor.
We re-met on last Sunday for a few more photos in better light, starting at the Japanese Garden at the arboretum.
Our final stop was at Lanaya & Zach’s favorite Madrona pub, the Madrona Eatery & Alehouse. We each drank a pint of Manny’s and sat in the sun and geeked out and ate the best fries I’ve had in Seattle. Fun! Thanks Lanaya and Zach for not one but two fun sessions!
