/ Seattle Beach Engagement Session

SEATTLE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER — Seattle Beach Engagement Session

Michelle and John’s engagement session was a low-key night hanging out on a Seattle beach. We wanted their photos to reflect their playfulness and their love of spending time together and of course their love of the ocean!


These cuties. As I was putting this blog together I realized when people look at this they are going to think I am a grade A comedian. There was so much laughter in this session, which I love. But let’s be clear, I played no role in it. They are just a genuinely giggly and happy couple, very much in love, and so much fun to be around.

Their wedding is going to be in Mukilteo next summer along the water, and they were excited to be able to incorporate the ocean in their engagement photos too. It was also important to them that their photos reflected who they really were, which was a happy playful couple that doesn’t take themselves too seriously. 

We started out at the beach at Discovery Park, walking around, throwing rocks, sittin’ on logs. The usual beach activities. Afterwards we made our way up to the Discovery Park bluffs, which overlook the sound. The view and the sunset were a perfect end to a great evening.

Of course, like all couples, they informed me that they would be very awkward, but I mean gosh look at them : ). I think they are naturals. 

Loved getting to work with them on these, and couldn’t be more excited for their wedding next summer!

P.S. Michelle’s is a co-owner at Balancing Balloons. Such a talent.
