adventure is out there

I love how adventurous and well-traveled the couples I get to work with are! Erika and Aron are definitely no exception! I just re-read their engagement story and I am in awe of these two and their excitement for living life to its fullest! Erika wrote: “While walking the Portuguese route of El Camino de Santiago, we took a rest day about a week into the trip. We explored a nearby palace/wildlife reserve/cathedral area and hiked to the top of the small mountain it sat on top of. I spotted a nearby terrace look-out just beneath the summit and led the way to explore it. Aron set up the self-timer on the camera, and the next thing I knew, he was on one knee proposing!…I love that we got engaged toward the beginning of our 5 week trip and had the rest of the time to enjoy dreaming of our life together”. I am also struck by their commitment to working in their communities to help make the lives of those around them better–daily. What a beautiful thing it is when people as kind as this find one another! I am SO incredibly happy for you two and SO looking forward to your fall wedding at Brown Family Homestead!!!

Paris in Seattle | Blair & Bennett | Engaged!

Simply stated: J’adore these two! I adore the way they look knowingly at one another. I adore the way they crinkle their noses when they laugh at each other’s jokes. I adore the way they give a little squeeze of the other’s hand, a sign of knowing, of assurance. And, I adore just hanging out with them!

Blair and Bennett were engaged recently while on a trip together to Paris, so to honor that occasion we discovered a little of Paris in Seattle! We sipped café au lait at Le Pichet, we walked a (blue) tree-lined square, explored in Queen Anne and finally grabbed a bite at Toulouse Petit. Blair and Bennett, I adored every minute spent with you!

Alex & Erik | Engaged!!

What do you say, Percy? I am thinking
of sitting out on the sand to watch
the moon rise. Full tonight.
So we go, and the moon rises, so beautiful it

makes me shudder, makes me think about
time and space, makes me take
measure of myself: one iota
pondering heaven. Thus we sit,

I thinking how grateful I am for the moon’s
perfect beauty and also, oh! How rich
it is to love the world. Percy, meanwhile,
leans against me and gazes up into
my face. As though I were
his perfect moon.
-Mary Oliver

The way he gazes upon her face, as though she were his perfect moon… A reflection of light onto him. That’s what their love looks like to me.

Alex and Erik will be married this very weekend at the Tierra Learning Center in Leavenworth, WA! And, I am ridiculously excited about it! First, here are few images from their engagement session…
