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.

Broken sublimity. “I am because you wouldn’t have it any other way.” You, are not. I should have heard that. They weren’t an illusion on my mountain. They were fixed in the sky. A planet with gravitational pull that kept my feet on the ground. A united reality where I slept safely. A further joke […]

Becky booked Ethan’s Baseball Senior Photos with The Studio about a year before we were able to finally document them. I’m so happy we finally got together to document a special time for their whole family and especially Ethan! Becky and I first met when I photographed her and Aaron’s engagement photos at the Milton […]

We’ve officially been nomadic for 18 months and we find ourselves getting cozy in Lake Chelan, Washington for the summer! With two weddings remaining summer 2022, we’re preparing to leave the state, but not just yet. I feel the need to stay close to my couples around their wedding dates which puts us not traveling […]

I’m celebrating. In a family suite at Little Creek. By a dreamy electric fireplace in dusk window light. There’s the sound of little boys watching cartoons in another room and Dinah munching food while I sip Grapefruit Pompelini. Clynn’s at a Poker Tournament. Laughing, I’m sure. Winning? Most likely. Dropping a hand or two out […]
