Amanda & Petter came all the way from Sweden (after getting delayed by all of the crazy winter weather in London) to have their engagement photos taken here in Seattle. Although they met while studying at North Park University in Chicago, their love eventually led Amanda to leave the United States and head all the way to Sweden to study, and of course, to be closer to Petter. Now they’re planning a beautiful wedding in the seaside village of Kivik, Sweden and thought that it was only appropriate to commission us to photograph their engagement session in Amanda’s hometown of Seattle.

It was a cold, beautiful December afternoon, so we decided to start with a little “fika” (Swedish for “a little coffee break”) at OddFellows Cafe on Capitol Hill before heading out to brave the cold at Pike Place Market and the Seattle waterfront. Our goal with their session was to not only capture the warmth of their love, but also to capture some moments that give a glimpse into what makes them a fun, fashionable Swedish-American couple. We hope you enjoy the collection of images we’ve put together.

What a cute couple! I love all the lines and color in these. And a destination wedding in Sweden?! Can’t wait to see those photos!
