Kelly & Patrick's Engagement Session

A couple weeks ago we had a chance to hang out with our new friends, Kelly and Patrick for their Life Engagement Session. We started off at their home in Seattle (which is very cute!)







Our next stop was the Greenlake Bar and Grill, which just happened to be where they had their first date! Before we started shooting though, I talked to the staff there to make sure it was OK. Some places (like Starbucks) don't allow you to take pictures, so it's always nice to be courteous and ask first so no one gets mad at you. :) Well, not only did they let us shoot in there, they also gave Kelly and Patrick a $50 gift certificate! It was so awesome!!!





Right across the street from the restaurant is Green Lake, so we walked around out there as long as we could stand the (seriously) freezing cold weather...poor Kelly is an Australian and not used to our frigid climate.








Next we stopped at this reall cool little bakery called Hiroki's to warm up over a cup of coffee and some yummy cake. If you are looking for a unique and REALLY good cake for your wedding, this is seriously the place to go. It was such a nice break to get out of the cold and wind! Check out the latte he made for us... how do he do that?




We made one last stop in the Capitol Hill area after it got dark for a few nightime photos...


That's it for now...Kelly & Patrick, we are so excited that we get to photograph your wedding in a few short months--thanks for the opportunity! :)

Gerald (& Airika too)

These are great images. I really like the silhouette on the street, very emotionally evocative.

All the best for 2008

Those are SWEET images! LOVIN' what Greenlake Bar & Grill did... that is EXACTLY the kind of establishment I prefer to frequent and send more business. Will definitely be going there sometime soon (I have a friend who lives a block away).
