Marivel and Sepehr asked me to photograph their proposal announcement at Seward Park. Hands down I excitably said yes! Marivel is also a Seattle Photographer in the industry and what an honor it was to capture a friend and peers special moment in both their lives!! The engagement ring dazzled in diamonds with a circle cut pink gemstone that I admired. Sepehr did such a great job picking out the ring and their story of how he proposed was adorable! The previous weekend they went on a pacific northwest summer vacation with the kids and rented an airbnb house on the water. In the evening he asked for her to put on something fancy which seemed somewhat suspicious and almost gave away the surprise. She headed down to the lake where a bonfire was blazing and he asked her to marry him. It was such a special moment between them and the children.
Tonight my good friends since college, Amie and Rohin hosted their rehearsal dinner & welcome party for the anticipated wedding tomorrow! It was a great event with live music by Swing 49 Band at Nectar Lounge in Fremont. Everyone was so excited to reconnect with family and friends and the atmosphere could not have been better. I was fortunate to be asked to capture images of guests at the event. Below are photos showing everyone having a merry time and celebrating the union of the happy couple! Love you guys. So excited to be a guest at your wedding tomorrow and enjoy your love all these years knowing you both!!
Geneva + Brandon ‘s entire wedding day felt like an editorial magazine publication!! From the beginning details of her dress, stunning color palate, florals, and J.Crew bridesmaid dresses, to the venue setup, it was throughly planned out and all the hard work from the couple paid off. Their first look was even more magical as they wrote their vows down and read them on the beach. Capturing their real emotions was really the highlight of the entire wedding day! As the ceremony started the fog rolled in and brought the best lighting in capturing the glowing bride and groom to be! Brandon + Geneva are the sweetest couple, they are generous, kind, and their personalities compliment each other so well!

Discover Park is filled with so many possibilities of endless backgrounds and photo opportunities. My sweet couple and I enjoyed the evening walking all over Discovery Park to capture the essence of who they are. One request was to include their 5 month old son in the session, and I was delighted he came along. I’m so excited to have the honor to photograph their wedding in August and I look forward to capturing more memories with them!! They were such an amazing couple to work with and being able to photograph the initial engagement session prepared them with a treasure trove of poses for the big day!
