Shavonne & Jacob ~ Engagement

Rose-Lily met up with Shavonne & Jacob for a stunning Fall Engagement Session at the Washington Park Arboretum back on 10/30/16!  Our walk through the park gave us the chance to discover some amazing locations full of the colors of fall in the Pacific Northwest.  The happy couple’s Scottish Clan Crests (Douglas & Crawford respectively) and some local pumpkins helped give the photographs even more personality and variety! After meeting 7 years ago through friends, Shavonne & Jacob had their first date at the Pacific Science Center in Seattle.  Jacob is a Computer Programmer and Shavonne is a Graphic Designer, and when they aren’t hard at work or hanging our with their bearded dragon (Fredrick) or 2 cats (Warf & Dax) they enjoy watching their Seahawks, snowboarding or playing darts!  After popping the question 6 mos ago (& after Shavonne said ‘yes’, of course!), they got to planning and their big Wedding at Troll Haven in Sequim on 08/05/17 – and Rose-Lily will be there too!  So please join me in wishing congratulations to Shavonne & Jacob and many-many happy years together!


    Brooke & Ben ~ Engagement

    Rose-Lily caught up with Brooke & Ben at Boulevard Park in Bellingham back on 10/29/16 for a late October, rainy-day Engagement Session with their canine companion Albi!  We had to wait out some rain, but it was worth it!  Beautiful light, a stunning setting, a joyful couple and a happy Albi made for the perfect afternoon for photographing Brooke & Ben!  We even included a few stunning scenic photographs to highlight the splendor of the this amazing location!   Brooke (a 2nd Grade Teacher) & Ben (an Engineer) first met about 6 years ago at a Bar in Bellingham!  Ben was playing pool & about to take a shot when he turned to Brooke and asked her to hold his beer – nice one Ben!  They soon after went to a Thai restaurant for their official first date and have been together ever since.  Ben popped the question last February, Brooke said “yes” and their Wedding Set for July 22, 2017 at Green Gates at Flowing Lake (& Rose-Lily will be there too)!  So please join me in wishing Brooke & Ben many many happy years together & check out some of these great highlight images from our Engagement Session!

    Lindsey & Marcus ~ Engagement

    Lindsey & Marcus introduced Rose-Lily to their 2 favorite canine companions, “Linus & Lucy”, during an incredible Engagement Session at Volunteer Park in Seattle!  The park could not have looked more like a Monet painting of the Fall Season and our travels through it were amazing!  Lindsey and I were able to capture some great images thanks to this wonderful setting & the great overcast light!   Lindsay & Marcus have been together for about 3 years and meeting one night through a couple friends at Denny’s!  Their first official date was at the Seattle Aquarium and about a year ago our happy couple got Engaged!  Lindsey is a Supervisor for a Children’s Program and Marcus works in Management for a local business, and when they aren’t on the job they enjoy spending time with Linus & Lucy, going to movies and traveling (especially to Mexico & Las Vegas).  So until their Wedding in July 2017 at Nature’s Connection Place in Arlington, please join me in wishing Congratulations to Lindsey & Marcus on their Engagement & here’s to many-many happy years together for our happy couple!

    Leslee & James ~ Engagement

    Rose-Lily met up with Leslee & James at the Park at Bothell Landing for an amazing Engagement Session back on 10/22/16!  We had the most incredible light on this beautiful October afternoon & we love photographing our couples & families at this location because of the wide range of picturesque locations throughout.  Leslee & James first met using a dating app (Tinder) about 2 years ago, and then James popped the question about 1 year ago in front of Leslee’s entire family at Thanksgiving (& she said ‘yes’)!   Leslee is a Labor & Delivery Nurse and James is an Army Veteran who served in Afghanistan and now works in the HVAC business.  When they aren’t hard at work, our happy couple enjoys going to the movies, playing their game boys, traveling and going out for Mexican food!  We wee honored to be with them on this day, and we are so excited to be working with Leslee & James again on 05/07/17 when they get married at Echo Falls Golf Course in Snohomish!  So until then, please join us in wishing the happy couple many-many years together and check out these exciting highlight photos from their Engagement Session in Bothell!

      Alexis & Mike ~ Engagement

      Rose-Lily caught up with Alexis & Mike back on 10/16/16 up-river in Concrete at her Aunt’s property next to the Skagit River.  It was a wet day, so we had some rain drops to dodge, but all those clouds just ended up making the light for the Session all that more beautiful!  Alexis & Mike have been together for about 7 years and were engaged last Christmas, when Mike popped the question while they were on a hike to Pike’s Peak during a trip to Colorado.  When they aren’t hanging out with their bearded dragon “Fransisco”, our happy couple enjoys fishing (hence the Engagement Ring on a fish hook!), hunting and camping – as well as tipping down a few micro-brews!  So until their Wedding at The Beau Lodge in August of 2017, please join me in wishing them both  congratulations & best wishes on many-many happy years ahead!
