Juanita Beach Park Engagement Session: Andrea + Andy

Oct 13, 2008 | Engagements

Last week was a funny one – torrential downpours, gusting winds, that biting cold … and then there was Tuesday.  Ah, Tuesday.  The perfect day for an engagement session with the delightful Andrea and Andy.  They suggested we meet over on the eastside so that they could show off one of their favorite spots, Juanita Beach Park.  It was a little bit windy still, but the sun was warm and golden and the sky was this amazing deep threatening gray.  Gorgeous light, a gorgeous location and two gorgeous and utterly silly people to photograph … heaven!  We spent the bulk of the session wandering around the beach park and the attached bay park, getting a mixture of cute, funny, romantic and goofy shots, then for the last 20 minutes I attempted to get some fun photos of them playing football and tackling each other.  These guys are football crazy!  And of course we had to get a couple of ring shots too – I love the football as a backdrop.  Thanks Andrea and Andy for a very fun afternoon … and thank you Mandy for referring them to me via Andrea’s mom!
