Engagement at Fay Bainbridge Park on Bainbridge Island WA | Nicole & Max

As many of you know, we just recently moved to Bainbridge Island in Washington, which if you've never been... is GORGEOUS! We absolutely love living here. That being said, there are tons of beautiful places on the island that we have been dying to shoot at. So when Nicole and Max brought up the possibility of shooting here on Bainbridge... We were super pumped!! 

We decided on a sunrise session down on the beach at Fay Bainbridge Park, which left Nicole and Max to catch a 6am ferry from Seattle. We were sure to greet them with a fresh pot of hot coffee!! :)

After shooting down on the beach for awhile, we headed over to The Grand Forest. It is a gorgeous hiking trail on the island full of lush greenery, tall trees, and moss. Lots of serious Hoh Rainforest vibes goin' on! 

Thank you for being such troopers and braving the early morning, Nicole & Max. We are so excited for your wedding later this September! 

 

Engagement at Tall Timber Ranch in Leavenworth WA | Amanda & Jim

Ok, give us ALL the snowy engagement sessions!!

Going into this engagement session, the weather was a wee bit chilly and it was spitting rain, but it did not phase Amanda or Jim at all. We met up a little early at a brewery in Leavenworth to chat for a bit and have a couple of beers. From there we caravanned out to Tall Timber Ranch, which is about 40 minutes out of downtown Leavenworth. There is ZERO phone service out there so we made sure to travel together to make sure that we didn't lose each other. This place is seriously such a hidden gem... We are so glad that Amanda and Jim were up for the journey. :)

We started out their engagement session by keeping things casual... Focusing on their fun, goofy, and light hearted personalities. What better way to capture that than by playing in the snow? Everyone loves playing in the snow! After shooting for a bit, they let us know that they had an outfit change so we headed back to the main lodge at Tall Timber Ranch to change and thaw out a bit by the fire.

Our jaws hit the floor when they came strolling out of the bathroom 5 minutes later looking like they were straight out of a magazine. Amanda and Jim are both very into fashion and totally rocked their second look... SO elegant. Oh! And fun fact... Amanda has a secret superpower of 'throwing' her hair up in 30 seconds into the perfect up do. I mean... I'm talking "I just came back from the salon" kind of up do. In 30 seconds. What? 

Ok, I'll stop rambling, so we can get to the pictures. :) Enjoy the oh so lovely Amanda and Jim... Both goofy and glamorous
