Tess & Cameron | Olympia Engagement Photos

Mar

05

Before even seeing my sample galleries, Tess & Cameron were pretty certain they wanted their Olympia Engagement Photos at the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge! I first met Tess, Cameron, and baby Isolde at the 222 Market in Olympia, Washington. There’s this adorable Cafè known as “The Bread Peddler” inside that I LOVE meeting my potential couples in to get to know each other over coffee and a treat or just take in the atmosphere in a beautifully neutral zone. ♥

Sitting at a center raised table we got to know each other, gushed over baby Isolde, went through my portfolio and every scenario from high noon sun to dark venues. We were an instant match and I couldn’t be more excited for their Spring Wedding this April at Titlow Lodge in Tacoma, WA!

When my couples have babies & children of their own or from previous relationships, I always offer for them to join us during the first half of their engagement session! When kiddos are involved, it’s never just about if you’re a great match for each other, it’s about if your a great match for your children as well. I know your babies are such a big part of your love story, so as I will always get those romantic portraits of just you and your fiancè, I also want to capture the full circle of how you came to be so perfect for one another.

A couple weeks before their Olympia Engagement Photos, we met up at their venue for a walk through! I always try to walk through my couple’s venues with them before the big day so they can point out their visions and I can add my wedding experience to their concerns or questions. Meeting up for a walk through gives us another chance to be around each other before the big day, which is always a pro in my book!

Check out another gorgeous Olympia Engagement Session at the Billy Frank Jr. Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge! I am such a fan of this location for being in the middle of everything and feeling like you’re miles away from any hustle and bustle of the surrounding cities.

Hi! How are you? Thinking of lots of my clients lately and hoping you’re doing well no matter where life has taken you! I’ve been laying low. Loving on my kiddos, friends, sisters, and partners. They’re all taking great care of me, too! Working my booty offf. Trying to eat healthy and navigate adulting more […]

The in between

Life has been very romantic lately. Unknown and confusing and both flighty and grounded all at once. I remember being 14 and seeing my entire life by your side. Life is wild. I remember a water bottle and abandoned bleachers. I remember axe body spray and the way I had never been kissed. I know […]

Nirvana & I think of you

I hope you know better than to think I’d want to be anywhere but here right now. It was true on NYE and it’s true right now in my car outside the café. This may have felt seamless. Too seamless. Happenstance. But I’m here on purpose, now. I see your soft heart and I see […]

I hope you know better

You’ll walk through a glittering white veil, uncharacteristically soft compared to what you’ll find behind it. It has no need to keep you out. You quickly realize it’s the aura within that turns most around. The texture disorients. I’ll already be inside. What do you see? Upon first impression, you’re in a desert. Interesting considering […]
