Seattle Engagement Portraits | Joy & Mike

Joy and Mike are huge Seattle Seahawks fans. Also, we won the Superbowl this year with style. With that in mind we started the engagement portrait session at Century Link Field, the home of the Seattle Seahawks, Superbowl winners. Yes, those of us from Seattle have been starved for a major championship, so I am repeating "Seattle Seahawks, Superbowl Champions" just a few more times so that everyone gets the point. Beyond the fact that Joy and Mike enjoy watching the Seahawks win, they are a very fun couple that laugh a lot together. After a few images at Century Link Field, we walked around Pioneer Square and Occidental Park. Then we went down to Myrtle Edwards Park and the Olympic Sculpture Park for a nightcap of Sunset portraits.

I loved the reflection off of the new building in the north parking lot.

I really liked this image of Joy and Mike as they walked down first avenue. I was playing with light, shadow and lens flare.

Kai & JJ | Couple Portraits in Downtown Seattle!

I met Kai and JJ near Pioneer Square for some couple portraits. Very fun!

I love shallow depth of field!

After Pioneer Square we went to Kerry Park for a few more portraits.
