UW, Pike Place and Kerry Park Engagement: Melissa + AJ

Oct 7, 2008 | Engagements

Last Sunday, I met up with Melissa and AJ for their engagement session.  We started out with glorious sunshine at the University of Washington and had fun playing around in some of my old favorite photo spots as well as finding a couple of new ones.  After an hour or so on campus, we had a lightening fast tour of Post Alley (Melissa loves the red brick and the silhouette in the alley shots) and then up to Kerry Park for a few last photos before sun down.  Oh, and they didn’t *actually* lick the bubblegum wall … although they did come dangerously close … ew!

Melissa and AJ were a ton of fun to hang out with, and I’m super excited for their wedding next summer.  They are taking me on a little tour of Tacoma’s coolest spots and devoting LOTS of time to couple and wedding party pictures – yay!  Thanks for a really fun evening guys, and enjoy your teasers!
