I met Diana and Brad down at the Arboretum at Washington Park in Seattle for their engagement portraits. The area there is absolutely awesome for portraits. Lots of variety, beautiful vistas, interesting relationships between the foreground and the background. It may be a new favorite spot for portraits for me. Also, I brought my wonderfully talented daughter along with me. She created one of my favorite images of the day. I’m very proud!
This image was taken by my incredibly talented daughter, Alyssa Parris. She has a grasp on composition that many photographers twice her age would happy to have. I’m a little proud!
This last image of Diana and Brad walking through the forest reminds me of one of my favorite images of all time, Eugene W. Smith’s “The Walk to Paradise Garden”. You can see EWS’ fantastic image from 1918 on Sotheby’s website.
