I met up with Barbie & Colin last Saturday, March 30th, at Volunteer Park in Seattle.  We shot this fantastic Engagement Session on what was undeniably the most beautiful day so far this year.  With the Seattle Asian Art Museum and the park as a backgrounds,  it was kind of hard to go wrong!  We moved down to Broadway in Capital Hill (I lived there for 3 years & really miss it!) & meandered about grabbing cool urban environmentals.  I asked Barbie to talk about the story of her & Collin for this post (& I asked her to thrown in their favorite tune & eats) – & here’s what she wrote:

“We have known each other 5.5 years. We met when I was his tour guide in Japan. It was a 2 week backpacking tour. When I first met him I couldn’t understand a word he said, he mumbled, spoke softly and had the accent.  When he first saw me it was love at first sight. We spent the first four years together Skyping multiple times a day and taking turns visiting each other every 3-6 months. He knew I had never been to many European cities & would take me on romantic trips to Paris, Rome, Barcelona, Belfast, Scotland and all over Ireland.  I’m a RN, Col is a software tester.  We are so different from each other in every way, they say opposites attract… I always had crazy ideas for things I wanted to do but wanted someone to do them with and he always wanted to do crazy things but needed a director.  Our fave song together must be ‘Such Great Heights’ by the Postal Service. Fave food together as a couple is ‘Village Pizza’ in Anacortes – best pizza out there!”

What an awesome day making pictures for one of the nicest couple on the planet – see you guys in June at the Wild Rose in Arlington to tie the knot!
