Allison and Tyler

We met Allison last year when she was the maid of honor at Kristin and Justin's wedding, and we couldn't be more excited to be shooting her and Tyler's wedding in January. These two are so much fun! Their smiles are genuine, their laughter is contagious, and the joy in their hearts is plain to see.

For their engagement session, we braved a little light rain as we played with their dog Dag in the backyard, and then headed out to the Arboretum in Seattle. We'd been eying this photo location for a couple of months and were so excited that Allison & Tyler wanted to shoot here.

Allsion & Tyler, we love how with a single glance, you make each other laugh and encourage the best in each other. Thank you for choosing us to capture your wedding memories.

There are a lot of overpasses and bridges in this part of the Arboretum, which make it a great place to shoot on a cloudy day. The natural shadows cast by the bridges can be used to turn the soft, flat light we tend to get on cloudy days, into soft directional light that sculpts your subjects and gives them depth.
