About three weeks ago, the family and I drove up to Seattle to get in some much needed visiting time with our "extended family". While we were up there, we had also made plans to meet up with our photographer to do our engagement/getting to know you photo session.
I've been photographed by Natasha Reed before for other friend's weddings. I do have to say it's a little bit different when you're the focus of the camera. Truth be told, I'm not nearly the cam whore I once was and over the years I've grown a bit camera shy. Natasha and her partner James did an amazing job making both Eric and I feel completely comfortable. We both had a great time and we can't wait to have her shoot our wedding.
We started out at Seattle Center, but the minute we arrived it started to rain. Good ol' Seattle never fails. It was a bummer too because it had been beautiful all day long. But Natasha and James were professional, quick, and dealt with the moody weather with the finesse only Seattle-ites can have. Luckily, Eric and I are from Portland so we weren't too surprised to see those rain clouds roll in and rain on our love fest.
On our way back to the car, James found a little hallway inside to warm up and take care of some essential needs. Natasha and James saw an opportunity to snap a few more photos of us.
Toward the end of the night, we found ourselves at a closed Pike Place and Post Alley. We joked around, goofed off, and Natasha and James really captured our playfulness. Eric and I are a couple of nerdy kids who goof off constantly. I'm beyond pleased with the way they managed to capture it on film along with the love that we feel for each other.
I can not praise Natasha and James enough. They were incredible. Fantastic. AMAZING! They put us at ease and joked around with us and the whole experience was, in general, plain good fun.
