This was my third round of engagement portraits at Discovery Park and it never fails to disappoint! I hope you all cozy into this location for 2018 because I’m pretty obsessed!
When Piper and Josh booked me for their wedding they were nowhere to be seen! Piper messaged me from Arizona letting me know she’d like me to meet with her Mom in Tacoma and that she trusted her mom’s instinct. I met with Piper’s parents, Jeanice and Sam, to get to know a bit about this amazing couple. It was nice having this unique opportunity to meet with Piper’s family AND Piper and Josh before the wedding!
Both Piper and Josh are students in Arizona and are planning their wedding here in Washington. Piper is finally home for the summer and Josh is flying in as often as he is able! We finally got to coordinate this engagement session to get to know each other and I’m so happy we did! They both had engagement portraits taken shortly after their engagement before deciding on a wedding photographer. I ALWAYS encourage my couples to meet me for engagement portraits no matter where they are in the wedding planning process. This allows for them to get to know me, my posing/shooting style, and get a feel for what their wedding portraits will look like before they get them. I love keeping surprises to a minimum unless they include pretty boxes in the mail! Having all of my couples do engagement portraits with me (even if it’s just a couple weeks before the wedding!) really helps wedding day portraits go much more smoothly as my couple feels confident and familiar with everything I lead them to do. It’s truly night and day worth the time!
Josh is studying to become a youth minister and Piper is working towards pediatric medicine (physical therapy maybe!). They are so cozy and sweet. I have seen a sneak peek of Piper’s dress and I CAN NOT WAIT to see it in person next month! Piper’s childhood bible teacher will be officiating. I love when the celebrant knows my couple! It always makes for plenty of laughs and the sweetest smiles in reminiscing during the ceremony. I can’t wait to photograph their traditional chapel ceremony!
Congratulations to Piper and Josh! Your wedding day will be amazing, beautiful, and so full of love because of how much everyone can see you care for each other. ♥
See another session at this location!
