Marilynn + Josh: Seattle Engagement Portraits

mjeng05

Marilynn is one of my closest friends. She is adventurous, spontaneous, outgoing, sarcastic, loyal, and a little bit scatterbrained. Josh is the love of her life. He is thoughtful, patient, quiet, witty, and a little bit systematic (he is, after all, a chemist). They recently got engaged and moved to Seattle, which stinks because I don’t get to hang out with Marilynn whenever I want to. Also, they recently got engaged and moved to Seattle, which is awesome, because I get to go visit whenever I want to!

Seattle is so lush and green, and it’s like a green that you don’t see anywhere else. I fell in love with this city! It was such a treat to shoot Marilynn and Josh’s engagement portraits while I was out visiting. We went to the Seattle Japanese Garden, which is part of the University of Washington. It was gorgeous, and very green. 🙂 I have entirely too many favorites. Beautiful location + in love couple = photographic awesomesauce. Enjoy!

By the way, the leaves were already beginning to turn, and it was LABOR DAY WEEKEND!! Can you believe that? It was still 80* here in SC this week!

They said they didn’t want a bunch of “kissy-face” pictures, but I came back from scouting a location, and here’s what I found…

I’m telling you, this garden was a-ma-zing!

Girl, you are both fierce and sweet.

Hehe, I had to include this one. These two are ALWAYS picking at each other…keeps them on their toes I think!

And a favorite from the day, with Josh looking a bit fierce himself!

Marilynn and Josh, thank you for an amazing vacation in your fantastic new city. Thank you for the amazing photo-session, cufflink disaster and all. And mostly, thank you for being the kind of friends I can count on and call on any day, for hours at a time, for honesty and understanding and tons of laughter. I love y’all!
