I’ve been waiting three years to photograph this Seattle engagement session, basically. One lingering summer night in 2015, I remember standing on a rooftop as Rachel and Kayla announced their engagement and were immediately buried in a giant dogpile hug from friends. We chatted about favorite podcasts and the responsibility of being dog moms as we wandered down to the beach at Meadowdale Beach Park. These two have a relaxed, effortless kind of love that has included a lot of incredible home-cooked dinners, weekend getaways, craft cocktails, and Netflix marathons over the years. Their wedding in October is going to be just a ridiculous amount of fun.
