UW Arboretum Engagement – James + Alessandra

 

James and Alessandra met each other while they were both attending the University of Washington in Seattle. So we chose a location that was near to their hearts, this is their UW arboretum engagement session.

I’ve known these two for a few years and I was quite pleased to shoot their engagement and also their wedding. James is currently serving in the Air Force and is stationed in Colorado although his home and family reside in WA. Alessandra is originally from Wisconsin but spent the last few years living in WA before moving to Colorado to be closer to James.

These two are total goofs and they play off of each other a lot. Great senses of humor and gorgeous smiles make my job a whole lot easier! It’s interesting shooting with people you know as opposed to those you might not know that well. The biggest difference comes in the warm up period, every photographer can tell you that the first few minutes or even first 20 minutes of a session is generally not the best because your subject isn’t totally comfortable with the situation yet. When you know the subject then that flies out the window and you can just get to work!

I really loved working on this session and I think we came away with some great shots. This park is incredible and quite large with some interesting features surrounding it; including Lake Washington and a kayakers paradise of small inlets and areas to explore.

Take a look!
