An elegant Seattle Center engagement session

When I saw that an old friend from High School was recently engaged I knew I had to reach out to convince them to let us take some engagement photos for them! Jackie and I had been talking about doing an extra formal city styled engagement shoot for a while, and Tim and Karstin were the perfect couple to pull it off!

Jackie found this killer red dress on Amazon and we convinced Tim that renting a tuxedo was absolutely necessary to complete the look and take this thing next level. So when the day came we met up with our make up artist Adrienne so that her and Jackie could give Karstin the perfect hair and make up look for the shoot.

Once that was complete it was off to Seattle Center for a tour of all the iconic spots as the day transitioned into night. We hit the MoPoP (formally EMP), below the Space Needle, and many of the different sculptures and installations that make Seattle Center unique, and of course played with some fun off camera flash ideas and even a smoke bomb!

I'd be lying if I didn't say that this was one of our all time favorite engagement sessions, and we are so stoked to be photographing Tim and Karstin's wedding later this summer!
