Let me start at the beginning…
A few months ago I got an email from Ralphie (aka. the sweetest husband alive). He told me that he had the best wife in the world and he wanted to surprise her with a trip to Seattle (they live on the east coast) and a photo session with me! He told me that they had never had traditional engagement photos taken and he really wanted to make up for that on their one year anniversary. He said I was her favorite photographer, which of course flattered me beyond words.
We devised a plan to surprise Sarah, who later I would learn is nearly impossible to surprise! Ralphie came up with the idea for me to post a fake plane ticket on my instagram page on their anniversary. He created the ticket in photo shop and I captioned it “Surprise Sarah! You are coming to Seattle for an anniversary photo session with me!”
Sarah was of course thrilled and excited about planning their trip. We started chatting via email and discovered a mutual love of photography and travel. I could not wait to meet these two!!
Three months later they were on the plane headed to the Pacific Northwest. 🙂
We decided to make the session extra special. Two locations (Fishermans Terminal and Discovery Park in Seattle). Two hours. Two distinct looks. Twice as many photos.
When we were done shooting, Ralphie and Sarah treated me to dinner! I could get used to that! 😉 Thank you so much for coming all the way out to the cold and windy PNW! You two are one of the sweetest couples I have ever met. So genuine, funny, positive and happily in love. I hope we cross paths again someday soon!
