Franklin-Falls-Snoqualmie-Engagement-Seattle-Wedding-Photographer-Adventure-Photography-by-Betty-Elaine_0001pinimage

Last week was so good for the soul. I love hiking with the couples I get to photograph. When Chet asked Shanae to marry him, they were at a Snoqualmie Falls. So it seemed fitting that their engagement session would take place at the basin of a waterfall. We hiked to Franklin Falls for their engagement photography. It was a gorgeous sunny afternoon, as we followed the trail under a canopy of trees that lead us to this impressive waterfall. Before leaving the area, I captured some of my favorite images of Shanae & Chet together with the mountain range in the background, filled with adventure and romance. I’m eager to photograph their wedding in the fall at the Pacific Tower in Seattle. Until then, I’ll just continue swooning over the images from this lovely day.

Anniversary-Session-Midwest-Travel-Seattle-Wedding-Photographer-Photography-by-Betty-Elaine-4pinimage

Last week, while I was out of town visiting family in the midwest, I stole my best friend and her husband for anniversary portraits in their neighborhood. They live in one of my favorite St Louis neighborhoods. I love photographing couples in places that have meaning to them. I also love historic old brick buildings!

Rachel & Adam have been married for three years. These two have huge hearts for serving the Lord and anyone in need. I’ve learnt so much about love by watching Rachel serve, and unconditionally love on people, over the many years of our friendship. They are genuine in their relationships, and I am so blessed to have them in my life.

I adore the way that Adam can make Rachel laugh in less than half a second, that they just look at each other and can’t help smiling, that Adam will find any excuse to brag on his wife, and let you know how hot she is! I miss them already, and I’m counting down to when these two visit me in Seattle this summer.

I’ve been eagerly awaiting to share these images since the shoot date in November! Today this couture Galia Lahav shoot is featured on Junebug Weddings.

We curated looks and a scene that inspires the viewer with something bold and dynamic, something that was more than wedding day inspiration, but instead that was targeted for the imagination, fantasy, and adventure, that these Galia Lahav gowns clearly were designed for.

Paris-France-Europe-Travel-Anniversary-Trip-Photography-by-Betty-Elaine_0015pinimage

In July I vacationed in Italy, England, and France to celebrate my 5 year wedding anniversary. Here you can find Part I (Positano)  Part II (Rome) Part III (Florence) Part IV (Chianti) Part V (Venice) and Part VI (England).

This was our last stop during our month in Europe. After photographing a wedding in Bristol England, we stayed in London for a few days before taking the Eurostar into Paris. We stayed at Hotel Caron de Beaumarchais, a boutique hotel in Paris. Our room had a terrace, and we could look out onto the city and rooftops. It was the perfect place to relax, drink coffee, and eat pain au chocolat.

Our favorite meals were just buying fresh fruits, cheese, a baguette from the market, and with a bottle of wine, we would picnic at the Eiffel Tower, or the Place de Vogues.

The gardens in Paris are filled with art, and are beautiful. I wish I could have spent more time browsing through books, and journalling at Shakespeare and Company, in the Latin Quarter.

At night, we would walk along the Seine, watching people dance, and play music, it’s truly magical at night. We would grab a glass of bubbly, and find late night crepe shops.13-Eiffel-Tower-Paris-France-Europe-Travel-Anniversary-Trip-Photography-by-Betty-Elainepinimage14-Rooftop-Croissant-Breakfast-Paris-France-Europe-Travel-Anniversary-Trip-Photography-by-Betty-Elainepinimage
