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.

Megan + Simon = Married

Megan and Simon got married at the fabulous Saint Michaels church near the University of Washington. The reception was held at Salty’s in Alki.

It was a lot of fun. Check out some of the pics.

The girls knew how to have a good time.

Simon is Scottish and wanted to wear a kilt, but Megan didn’t think that was such a great idea. But she did surprise him by getting the Seattle Firefighter: Pipes and Drums band to come play and escort them out of the ceremony.

Nicole + Jason = Engaged

Jason and Nicole showed me around one of their favorite places – the University of Washington campus. I could tell that they loved the place, and I have to say, I fell in love with it too. All of the buildings are so old and the grounds are beautiful. It it felt like I was in another country. I’d love to shoot a wedding or bridal session there. If any future brides are interested, let me know!
