I can’t imagine a better way to spend a Valentine’s Day as a photographer. Capturing the love between these two at their Golden Gardens engagement photo session in Seattle, WA.

I’ve known Kelsey almost my whole life. She lived down the street from me when I was growing up. We’ve shared many things together over the years and even though we may have drifted apart into our own lives over the years it never changes the bond that was built so long ago. Carter went to High School with us and he and Kelsey have been somewhat magnetic over the years. Things change and their lives went in different directions but they always came back to each other. They have a special bond as well.

I was really excited to shoot this session and Kelsey and Carter’s wedding as well. Working with people who radiate a positive energy and can smile effortlessly always makes my job easy. We got to explore one of the prettiest parks in the Seattle park system; Golden Gardens on the shore on the Puget Sound in the Ballard neighborhood.

Engagement sessions are great because it really gives the photographer a pre-game to your wedding. It provides an opportunity to better know the couple you’re working with and to build a rapport that will carry on through to their wedding day.

I hope you enjoy looking at their Golden Gardens engagement as much as I enjoyed shooting it!
