I was introduced to Greg and Kelsey through Greg’s older Sister (who has a really cute family). As a sibling myself I know that being protective comes naturally when it’s your younger and it was so special for Julie to recommend me. Kelsey and Greg are not rain people. We rescheduled the shoot twice to avoid the “Seattle Sunshine,” but they endured the elements and we made beautiful images. It made for a perfect blend of romance at the winery and True Northwest style at the park.
When we first arrived, Erika, the couple and I shared glasses of the great wine produced at Januik (I thoroughly enjoyed my Sangiovese). It is really fun to hang out with people and get to know them. These two are so down to earth and it was fun to catch up on how wedding plans had been going since we last were together.
Once we were really in full photo mode, the winery let us photograph in their cellars and production rooms. It was so interesting to go into the bowels of the wine production and to hear more about the process. Not to mention, the light was just awesome.
As all Seattleites are aware, this February has been a wet one. This lovely couple took the downpour in stride as we took advantage of Januiks modern styles.
Once we finished our wine, the four of use headed over to the Juanita Beach Park. This is just a few blocks from where they will call home. Both were already envisioning daily runs through these trails and boardwalks (and probably some sun too). There was even an Eagle.
Greg and Kelsey were so fun to photograph in in-climate weather, I’m so excited for their wedding day. It will be beautiful!
