Downtown Seattle Engagement Photos



I’m always so excited when couples choose Downtown Seattle for their Engagement Photos! Especially, when they trust me to do some work in the city dark.

Night time engagement photos are uncommon. They’re a great way to get something unique out of your session and a fun way to stretch your photographer to think differently for you. I only recommend hiring a photographer who enjoys this sort of challenge and has tried it before!

I had worked with Alicia and Michael a few times before. Once for an extended family photo session and once for a family photo session. About a week after this, they came to the studio for winter mini family session with the kiddos as well! I am looking forward to sharing that one, too. They’re such a great family to work with!

Upon arrival, we discovered Pier 58 and Miners Landing were closed due to collapse and we weren’t sure if we would be able to find a location to work with. After a little walking, we were able to find plenty!

We had a great time taking their day photos and even had a sea lion visit right next to where we were taking photos! After an outfit change, we hopped over to Starbucks for a coffee and to wait out the remainder of sunset for night fall. We love the look of all the city lights on at night!

Clynn captured secondary angles. We had so much fun talking wedding details, real estate investing, and a gazillion other things we found out we have in common! When it was finally dark enough, we went out for the night scene.

CONGRATULATIONS, Alicia & Michael!! They were engaged in Las Vegas just a few months ago and are planning a January 2022 wedding! See you in the studio again, soon!

Wedding Season 2021 has been an odd one. It’s been “busy” in a way I can’t describe. It’s been…discovering the strength of The Studio independent from marketing efforts due to six years of PUSHING every day. I’ve been figuring out nomadic life and preparing it for our second winter on the road. I’ve been focusing […]

Robyn & Justin’s Kerry Park Engagement Photos were a creative take on a classic Seattle location. I think this was the first time The Studio photographed engagement photos at Kerry Park where Clynn came to document side angles. Having his input around opened up space for me to view the park with fresh eyes. Robyn […]
