Post Alley & Alki Engagement Session: Chrissy + Milo

Jul 14, 2008 | Engagements

Last Wednesday, I had a super-last-minute engagement session with Chrissy and Milo – I’ll be photographing their wedding this coming Sunday!  We split our session into two parts – first, I showed them around my favorite corners of Post Alley and the market, then they introduced me to Alki Beach (I can’t believe I had lived in Seattle so long without ever visiting Alki!)

I actually like the market best when everyone goes home, and just the gritty shell of buildings and tables are left.

My favorite goofball wall:

I love this shot in the empty market:

After we’d exhausted the market and alley, we headed on to Alki.  Milo and Chrissy made a quick stop at home to change, and they picked up their adorable little pug – yay!

By around 8pm, the light was just perfect.

I finally got them giggling – I love this one:

I love the view of downtown Seattle from Alki – it’s spectacular.

One last shot at sunset …  See you on Sunday, guys!
