If you’ve ever used the phrase “the mountains are out,” you are probably from the Pacific Northwest. It’s usually uttered from the smiling lips of someone soaking up the sunshine on an unusually beautiful day in Seattle. We don’t get to see the winter sun very often around here, so when the mountains do come out, it’s only polite to let everyone know so that they won’t miss it!

A few weeks ago, we met up with Mindy and Steve for their engagement session and were thrilled to see that the mountains were out in all their glory! Not only that, but we had Golden Gardens and some of our favorite spots in Ballard all to ourselves. We loved spending the quiet morning with these two–there is so much warmth and joy in their relationship and I feel like these photos capture it all. Mindy & Steve, thank you for trusting us, and we can’t wait to capture your wedding at Pravda in one short month! 🙂

What a beautiful couple and gorgeous place to live!

Beautiful pictures & the couple is so darling & so happy. I’m loving it.

Golden Gardens is exactly where my husband and I did our engagement Shoot but it had more of a nautical theme with sepia tones and the sail boats in the background. These photos are amazing!!! Great work!
