Aside from providing you with beautiful portraits in a great setting, engagement sessions allow us to get to know one another before the big day!  Knowing what to expect from your photographer and feeling relaxed in front of the camera makes the portrait process on your wedding day that much easier and smoother.

Engagement sessions are the time for you and your beloved to show your personalities off, your love for one another, and your favorite outfits in a relaxing and enjoyable environment.  If you already have a location in mind we'd love to take a look, and if you're unsure we can suggest a few places!  A few things to consider when choosing a location for photos is time of year, accessibility, weather, and of course lighting.  If you have a place in mind but are unsure how it'll photograph don't worry, we can do a little research and exploring to see if it'll be a good spot for photos!

Some of our couples choose that special spot where (s)he proposed, others their favorite restaurant, a mountaintop, beach, or wooded area.  Wherever you end up choosing to have your portraits taken, we can't wait to get  you in front of the lens and bring out what makes you a special couple!


Not engaged but still want photos with your boyfriend/girlfriend?  No problem!  We are experienced in couples photography that won't leave your friends and family wondering if you're secretly engaged.  No wedding talk and no pressure.  Just a great time and fun photos of you and love at your side!

The location process is pretty much the same for engagement sessions, but we feel that because there's less pressure for these to be "official photos", our clients tend to choose more relaxed and creative spaces.  Think ice cream parlor, favorite brewery, a stroll through Pike Place Market, or even a fun trip to the Washington State Fair in Puyallup!
