As I’ve mentioned before on this blog that our first location was in the old Pioneer Square neighborhood of Seattle. As you can see from the pictures below how beautiful the buildings are around this area. It truly has an old east coast feel which I just love.
Chewy was taken aback by the huge lense of the camera when we took this picture. Good thing cause he looked straight into the camera and looks super cute!
Our second location was the South of Downtown (SODO) district of Seattle. We were going for its industrial feel, including the roughness of the train tracks and the colorful graffiti art. And I just have to say that the Beda dress did its job! I loved this outfit in this area. I got a little stain on it while sitting on one of the tracks, but I'm sure that'll come out. :)
Erwin asked me to do a Marilyn Monroe pose which I was shy about doing, but decided to just joke around and do a quick one. Of course, being so talented, he caught me! You can't get passed him! :)
This is probably one of my favorites. I loved the curvature of the train and of course, the graffiti on it.
I think one of the hardest things for me was when Erwin asked me to do silly shots. I couldn't come up with anything but ugly faces! His direction helped though and I'm glad he was able to catch these.
Yes, that's my "What the hell is Chris doing???" face!
I can't say how much I love love love this shot! While we were posing for this, I totally did not think this shot would turn out so wonderful. I really didn't remember the thick blanket of clouds above us, but I think Erwin might have layered separate photos together. I just love the colors and doesn't Chris look so GQ? =)
There's my GQ man!
The tires shot was an example of how an artist like Erwin sees inspiration and the end result is amazing. We were actually done with our shoot and walking back to our car when he saw these two old tires leaning against the wall. He asked us if we could take one last shot. I'm thinking..."SURE!" The tire was dirty as it could be but he was able to make it work. This actually turned out to be one of my favorites as well.
Every engagement session, Erwin asks to take a photo with the couple. I think it's a great idea!
Well, there you go everyone! I can't ramble enough about how great this session was and about what a great photographer Erwin is to work with. Our session was originally supposed to be 2 hours, but we actually took about 4 hours to take all the shots we needed. And I've never heard of a photographer providing photos the very next day after taking them. Erwin was able to provide me with these before he had to fly off to New York (for another engagement session) because he didn't want us to wait. Check out his blog here for other wonderful engagements, weddings, and events. Our wedding is in 3 months and I can not wait to work with him again. I'm sure he'll be able to capture all the beautiful moments and his pictures will be worth a hundred thousand memories and words!
Thank you, Erwin and Stefano for such a great weekend!
