Michelle and Derek are two architects in Seattle who love to cook! For their engagement shoot they rented The Pantry in Seattle. Then we all followed the shoot with a cooking lesson and finally private dinner as their engagement party.
Engagement sessions have the opportunity to be as creative and personal as possible, and therefore I try to incorporate as many personal details as possible! Michelle & Derek are two of my destination wedding clients. And as a result of my family living in Seattle we were able to work out an engagement session in the Spring to complement their late summer Oregon Coast wedding.
The engagement shoot consisted of making an apple pie, something they often do considering Derek is from eastern Washington State which is known for it’s apples. During the shoot the two of them dreamed about opening a restaurant as their next career.
