sunset engagement photos on alki beach in west seattle

After meeting with Nathaniel and Taldi, I knew we had an instant connection. Adventurous, outdoor-loving, travelers, ski tourers and mountaineers, it’s hard to keep them out of the mountains. They live here in Washington but will be tying the knot in the Tetons this summer and I couldn’t be more excited to tag along. After tossing around several ideas for their engagement session and even having to reschedule due to a crazy blizzard, we settled on West Seattle engagement photos at sunset near their home in the city. After all, most of the photos they have of each other are in the mountains, so the contrast is certainly lovely! We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect evening. As the sun set behind the Olympic Mountains, the connection between these two was more vibrant than ever. They are a perfect match and I’m so honored to be a part of their journey together.
