Kayla and Nick made a weekend out of getting their engagement photos done. They rented a hotel room at the Arctic Club Hotel which is a beautiful and vintage hotel in downtown Seattle. As a Seattle engagement photographer, I like when people make the experience their own. We spent a day exploring the city, capturing their love story in different places.
We began on a rooftop, taking in the city’s breathtaking views. Then, we moved to their hotel room, getting creative with our shots in this unique setting. Finally, we headed to Pike Place Market, cleverly avoiding the crowds by going near evening to capture their love in this iconic spot. It was fun to do a mix of epic city shots, intimate hotel room shots, and then to Pike Place which gave them a taste of Seattle since they were visiting.
City engagements mix romance with modern style. Inside the hotel, we captured intimate moments blending sophistication and love. It’s a fusion of modern charm and timeless affection that fits right into the city’s vibe. While on the rooftop and at Pike Place we could do some more traditional posing, in the hotel room we got to be creative. It felt a little bit like mixing my boudoir work and engagement sessions.
We pour some drinks, changed into different outfits and got to pose them sitting together in a chair, playing on the bed, and sipping their drinks together. Lots of laughter ensued and it helped to amp up the session and energy.
My aim as a photographer isn’t just to take pictures but to create memorable experiences. For Kayla and Nick, it was more than photos—it was about making lasting memories. Even for local couples, I encourage making the session an event. Dress up, celebrate your engagement with dinner, explore the city, or simply enjoy these unique moments together.
As a Seattle engagement photographer, I love blending romance with the city’s landscapes. Whether you’re local or visiting, let’s make your engagement session a celebration—a tribute to your love, the city’s charm, and the excitement of being engaged.
