Now onto something much more fun! This past Saturday, Chris and I were lucky enough to spend the afternoon with Ali+Tyler at Marymoore Park in Seattle's east side neighborhood. I met Ali about two years ago at a company potluck hosted by Chris' boss at the time and I immediately felt a connection with her. She's one of those gals I felt comfortable with from the beginning because she's funny, warm and a great listener. She, along with Tyler, are my heroes. Why? Because they help foster kittens for shelters so they get a chance to get adopted by a good family. They eventually say goodbye to almost every kitten they foster, and I know how hard that can be. Ali keeps a blog herself and you can find out more about her and Tyler's life here.
Ali+Tyler were college sweethearts and met in the dorms at Michigan State University. Within three months they graduated, got married, and moved to Seattle for Tyler's job. Although they had beautiful wedding pictures taken, they never had the opportunity to take engagement photos. And this upcoming June will be their 3rd year wedding anniversary. Chris and I hope that these photos will help them document this time in their lives and we're so appreciative that they've allowed us to spend their Saturday with them.
A photographer can always sense a natural infront of a camera, and Ali's that person. I mean, just look at her!
Tyler was definitely workin' it here. What a handsome guy eh?
It started raining cats and dogs not too long after we started at the park, so Ali+Tyler were nice enough to welcome us into their home to continue our shoot. Once the rain decided to stop, the sun peeked through the clouds and this gorgeous soft light came through their living room window. We got excited, screamed expletives, and these were the results.
Thank you guys for being such great hosts! We had a blast and can't wait to hang out again!
