Someone asked me recently if I care about Valentine's Day. Of course, I care about Valentine's Day. A lot of people dismiss it as a contrived, manufactured holiday, but one could say that about other holidays: Fourth of July, Thanksgiving, Veteran's Day. People don't necessarily honor the origins or the true meanings of those holidays, but Valentine's Day is something that you can acknowledge sincerely. It's a time to express love for your partner, your parents, your friends, your kids. Maybe it's the wedding photographer in me, but I think it's really nice to have a day dedicated to love. As Leo Tolstoy said, "Everything I understand, I understand only because I love."
Ramya and Sanath met in high school in India. They said that they wanted a lot of natural beauty in their engagement photos. Pioneer Square provided the perfect atmosphere without stepping away from the city. Most of the photos were taken in the southern section of Occidental Park, where the tall trees provide a vibrant arch. As luck would have it, some musicians were also there, and while they played, and these two showed off their dance moves.
The couple is getting married in November in India. Wish I could be there--it's been a long-time dream of mine to photograph a wedding in India--alas, I'm going to be in Louisiana and Mississippi in November. Congrats and best of luck to this beautiful couple!
Engagement Photo Pricing
I understand that hiring a wedding photographer can be a daunting task; that's why I'm currently running an autumn special on engagement photos so that couples could meet me while making beautiful, unique images for their save-the-date invitations, wedding website, holiday cards, and social media posts.
$150 will cover a half-hour session in one location in downtown Seattle, Belltown, Queen Anne, Capitol Hill or Fremont. $250 will cover a full-hour session. Need me to travel outside of Seattle? Depending on the distance, an additional charge of $20 - $50 may apply. A portion of the costs can later be applied toward a full wedding package.

Like many residents of Seattle, I love the natural beauty of our city. I live and work in downtown Seattle, and the Olympic Sculpture Park and Myrtle Edwards Park offer amazing vistas for family and couples' engagement photo shoots. Here are some images from some of my past photo sessions.
