When you are a California girl who's recently transplanted to Seattle for work, that California girl is still there in your heart. That's why this fall, when Valerie and Bryan contacted me about their engagement photos, they wanted to be somewhere with a beach.
We settled on doing their fall engagement photos at Seward Park where we had beach access but could also find some trees with beautiful colors. Valerie wore an adorable strapless dress, and while the air had a bit of a bite to it, she wanted to have her photos show her as the California girl, even if there were a few extra goose bumps on her skin.
The grey and rainy day shifted to giving us some sun reminding us of the heat of California and home to them while we created some portraits to share their love.
