K & G

A Des Moines Marina Engagement Session

Kristy and Gilberto have a fairy tale story. After finding a frog or two, Kristy met and fell in love with Gilberto and he’s totally her Knight in Shining Armor! I am crazy excited for their October wedding which will be at the gorgeous Filigree Farms in Buckley Washington. If you haven’t seen this venue, you have to check it out. It’s perfect for an elegant wedding with a touch of country charm.

Weather played nice for a brief period (spring rain is no joke here in the Seattle area!) and the sprinkles stopped just in time for us to meet at the Des Moines Marina for some sweet and snuggely, sunset engagement photos! Is snuggely a word? Well I’m using it! I’m a linguistic rebel! Sunset is the ideal lighting for romantic portraits - and mother nature did not disappoint! As the sun went down over the water we braved the increasingly strong gusts of wind to capture some warm, romantic, sun filled images.

Seeing this girl smiling and being so obviously loved and adored makes my heart happy. I’ve known Kristy since the days of big hair, aqua net, and acid washed jeans! Yep - I’m old! Having friends trust you enough to hire you to photograph their wedding is such an honor, T- 4 months until these two lovebirds tie the knot!
