Callum + Nicole | Engagement Photography | Pike Place Market, Seattle

You can view their slideshow here!

We almost canceled the shoot due to rain, but Nicole decided to go through with it and I’m glad we did, because we totally lucked out.  The rain stopped for us and it ended up being a beautiful fall evening.

I did this engagement session in Seattle at Kerry Park and Pike Place Market.  It was a beautiful fall engagement shoot in Seattle.  They were a blast to photographer.

Nicole and Callum wanted fall engagement pictures with the city for their engagement session and we found some perfect locations in Seattle. They knew just what to wear.

These two have traveled the world together.  They worked on cruise ships and were able to see all sides of the globe.  Wonder if they ever worked on sailboats together either way what an experience.  I'm excited to be their wedding photographer

Walker + Alicia | Engagement photo shoot | Seattle, WA

Click here to see their engagement slideshow!

These two rocked it for the camera.  They were awesome to work with.  We did a marathon engagement photo session that started at Ballard Locks (where they had a memorable date), hurried over to Kerry Park (overlooking the space needle where they got engaged) while we still had some daylight, then finished at Pike Place Market (because it’s fun) and to the famous gum wall in Post Alley.

Congrats on your engagement, Walker & Alicia!

Engagement Session Info | Good Photo Shoot Locations | Seattle Washington

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about engagement sessions recently so I thought I would cover some of them here. My engagement photo sessions usually last 1.5-2.5 hours and can be at any location or locations of your choice. The best time for taking pictures is in the evening when sun is not directly overhead.

Think of a session more like a date with your fiancé, and less of smiling and looking directly at the camera (smiling is still a good thing, in fact smile lots, and laughing, flirting and joking are all acceptable too!). You can take a picnic basket and blanket to the park, a canoe to the lake, or just bring yourselves and we’ll stroll around town and get an ice cream cone. The options are unlimited. Choose a place with a special meaning, a scenic location, or a spot where you just love to hang out.

It’s important to wear clothes that you love and feel good in. 2-3 outfit changes are welcomed, and they give variety to the pictures. It’s best to leave any bags or purses in the car so they’re not in the photos. Also leave sunglasses behind unless you plan to wear them in the pictures.

Seattle Engagement Photo | Picture was taken in King county Washington, surrounding counties include snohomish, kitsap,pierce, kittitas, and chelan.  Nearby cities include Bellevue, Seattle, Kirkland, Redmond, Lynnwood, and of course Mercer Island.  Joshua Gene is available destination weddings and other assignments anywhere.  Relaxed fun photo journalistic engagement photo.

Bethany & Ben | Engaged

These two are getting married in Minnesota, but they wanted engagement and bridal sessions here since this is where they met and they love Seattle. We had fun walking around Pike Place Market. Bethany is gorgeous and Ben ain’t too bad either, and they were a ton of fun.

Congrats on your engagement. See you in July! (And if you find yourselves in need of a photographer in Minnesota for the wedding, I’d be happy to fly out!)
