Mt-Rainier-Adventure-Anniversary-Session-Seattle-Bride-Photographer-Wedding-Photography-by-Betty-Elaine_0033pinimage

Anniversary sessions have become so dear to me. They are more than just photos. These are moments I pray that these couples will cherish forever. To look back on as their relationship gets deeper every year. Olivia & Sean celebrated two years of marriage in May. They both are from, met, fell in love, and were married in Arizona. They now live in Seattle, WA and are loving their life here. They wanted to celebrate these first years together, and document their time in the Northwest. And what is more perfect and romantic than the picturesque setting of the wildflower meadows at Mt Rainier National Park? We had a beautiful day adventuring.

Lavender-Farm-Sequim-Jardin-Du-Soleil-Seattle-Bride-Wedding-Photographer-Photography-by-Betty-Elaine_0017pinimage

When I moved to the Northwest, one of the things I wanted to see was the lavender fields near the Olympic Peninsula. I dreamed of photographing something beautiful, dramatic, and bridal there. In July, it happened! I photographed this elegant and romantic wedding inspiration shoot at Jardin du Soleil Lavender Farm.

Jen Lagers of The Outer Edge styled hair and makeup for two looks, featuring Anny Lin Bridal 2017 gowns provided to us from MeaMarie Bridal Atelier. These gowns were both gorgeous and romantic in style. Champagne, summer florals, and berries adorned the dessert table. It was designed to compliment the lavender farm’s surroundings, and so we traded in the traditional wedding cake, for berry crumble from Wakefield’s Baking Company! The decor and vintage rentals from Something Borrowed, Something Blue were absolutely perfect, and Candi of Thrifty Events executed the day and styling wonderfully.

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.
