Engagement Session at the Seattle Conservatory

I am a forever fan of O’Malley Photographers, and it will only take a little peek below to see why. They simply have a way of making magic from behind a camera lens - leaving this gorgeous couple with a set of images they will treasure forever and ever (and ever). See why I am such a huge fan here.

From O’Malley PhotographersWarmth can be hard to come by in Seattle this time of year, but the Volunteer Park Conservatory never disappoints with it’s lush, gorgeous succulents and airy rooms. Both Jackie and Patrick are Northwest natives so a shoot with an organic, natural and distinctly Northwest feel was just right for these two. They are planning a lovely island wedding this coming summer just outside of Seattle.

Rainy Seattle Engagement Session at The Center for Wooden Boats

Ok these two are just too cute for words. Their adorable shoot captured by Katie Parra Photography  is basically as adorable as they come, and it totally proves that a little rain will never ruin your shoot, heck, it might just make it better. See even more of these cuties here

From Katie Parra PhotographyHere in Seattle we get used to rescheduling photoshoots due to rain. Especially when we are planning on being outside for most of the shoot….like on a boat….in the middle of South Lake Union. Well having already rescheduled due to rain once before Sara, Stephen and I decided we were going to go for it despite the rainy day we were given. They were such troopers and luckily I was able to commandeer a boat with a roof. Our captain’s name was Jack….yup Captain Jack…..Sparrow?? At least that’s what we called him all afternoon. He was super nice and gave us a lovely guided tour through the floating homes and even took us by the famous Sleepless in Seattle houseboat. Hot chocolate with diamond ring marshmallows kept us toasty warm and we were greeted by two adorable ducks when we arrived back at the docks. The rain couldn’t dapper our fun afternoon and I think you will see in the images just how in love Sara and Stephen really are. They are practically glowing! I just know their wedding day is going to be something very special.

Champagne Tasting Bridal Shower Inspiration

Gathering your leading ladies for an afternoon of champagne sipping is always a welcome idea in our book. *Enter* Fat Cork in Seattle which just so happens to have beautiful space (and plenty of bubbly!) for the occasion. They partnered up with Katie Parra for wedding shower inspiration any bride could get behind, and you can snag a look at the full shebang over here.

From Katie Parra PhotographyI had the great pleasure of meeting Kate and Chloe of Fat Cork at a local industry event in Seattle. We talked all things Champagne and how they are opening up Fat Cork’s tasting room to host bridal showers, bridesmaid luncheons, and bachelorette parties. I of course jumped at the chance to photograph the mock bridal shower they wanted to put on to help get the word out to all our fabulous Seattle Brides. Kate and Chloe did a lovely job. Those two sure know their stuff when it comes to Champagne and how to throw a great party!

Fat Cork is a lovely space and by the end of the shoot I was literally trying to think up an excuse to have a party there for myself! But do I really need a reason…nope! Seattle Brides and Maids of Honor- Fat Cork’s tasting room is THE best place to celebrate this special and super fun time in one’s life. 

From Fat CorkWe partnered with Katie to create a French bridal shower featuring Champagne, the most celebratory of beverages! Our goal was to encourage brides to think of their shower not only as an afternoon of gifts and silly games, but also as an opportunity to check one more thing off the never-ending to-do list – selecting their wedding Champagne with their most trusted taste-testers.

We wanted the bridal shower to feel like a French fête, complete with rustic baguettes, fresh fruit, and delicious cheeses. We had a blast sipping Champagne, devouring French fare, and toasting to friends and fun!
