Discovery Park Engagement Photos
We had such an amazing day shooting these Discovery Park engagement photos! I was so excited to finally meet Olga and Derek in person. They had booked me before I had even moved to Seattle so I was looking forward to our meeting. Olga and Derek will be getting married this Summer at Robinswood House in Bellevue, WA. Can’t wait to document their day and work alongside their talented and ohh so likable Seattle wedding planner, Julia Pavlovski of Wedding Wise.
Engagement Shoot Adventure
Olga and I had brainstormed lots of different ideas for this shoot and the weather wasn’t looking promising, but I was thrilled to see that the forecast said sun! We started our day at Kerry Park, and though it was overcast we could still see the Space Needle in the distance. Afterwards we wandered into a beautiful garden at the end of the street and took in more amazing city views. After that we headed to Discovery Park with the pup in tow, wandering through the meadows down to the South Beach.
We walked the Loop trail at Discovery Park and made it to the beach just as the sun was beginning to set. The tide was high but we took advantage of the little bit of beach that was left for our portraits. Olga and Derek brought a beautiful blanket that Olga’s mother made by hand – so perfect! As the sun went down we finished our shoot by the Discovery Park Lighthouse and started to make our way back. We took some wrong turns since an hour later we were not out of the park.
We kept our spirits high by brainstorming where we could get dinner afterwards – We had to have motivation, right!? In any event we met up with my husband and had a fun double date at 8oz. Burger & Co. that made getting lost totally worth it.
