This post is a bit overdue, but certainly not because the engagement is overdue…it’s a busy schedule this summer that hasn’t given me the full amount of time I needed for this post. We actually had two different sessions for this as the weather didn’t cooperate one day for our “mountain” shots…so we had to break it up, which was just as well…that meant I got to spend more time with this awesome couple! Jenny and Mikey are the cutest couple and such fun to be around…I can’t wait for their wedding next May…I can only imagine how beautiful and fun it will be…with every detail perfectly planned out and executed! These two have actually known each other since high school and been friends…it just took a few years for them to figure out they were meant to be more than friends! Here we are, over 10 years since high school and planning a wedding, it’s all very exciting! Jenny is a first grade teacher and Mikey is finishing his last year of med school…and will start an internship next June…location, yet to be determined! I know they will have a great life and am excited to see where their future takes them…but I hope it’s not too far away as I want to be able to capture special times in their lives as “life” happens with them!!
The session (first one!) began at Gibson’s Yogurt in Tacoma as they have lots of special memories from there including the proposal (upstairs in a room above the shop)!!! What a fun place to start…and if you’ve never been to Gibson’s…I highly recommend it!!! YUM!! We then moved on to the UW campus in Tacoma and that has meaning to both Jenny and Mikey…she had finished up her master’s program there this spring and Mikey is at the UW med school (Seattle)…it was a perfect afternoon on a quiet Sunday there – and of course, we had to pop across the street by the Glass Museum for some shots as well…both of them love Tacoma and wanted their city as the back drop for their session…and we had some wonderful scenes. The second session was another evening about a month later and we were able to end the session on the waterfront in Tacoma with Mt. Rainier in the background and some magical light…for a wonderful couple!
Mikey will be a caring and compassionate doctor – he seems to have a passion for helping children, but I know that whatever field he chooses, he will excel and be a great asset to his patients!!What a beautiful bride Jenny will make…she’s such a kind and loving person…and I can only imagine the “ooh and aahs” that she will get on her wedding day…SO excited!!I told you they were the cutest couple, didn’t I!?!!LOVE this shot…Mikey is one lucky guy…and of course, Jenny is quite lucky herself…they are a great couple!!A fabulous couple with a wonderful story that will be continued next May…and I know that the future has so many things in store for them, I can’t wait to see what it is! For now, it’s Jenny and Mikey, but next May they will become “Mr. and Mrs.” and I’ll be anxious to share that special day with all of you!!
