Seattle: October 2012

I’m finally getting caught up on going through our personal images, and wanted to share some from our trip to Seattle in October of 2012 with you all! We’re pretty good about taking personal images (it’s one of our favorite ways to keep our creativity fresh!), but processing them…not so much πŸ˜‰ We’re working on it! (Another reason we’ve been loving our Instax for personal moments! Instant print!) Anyway, this trip was incredible! A few of our past wedding clients live in Seattle, along with some awesome photographer friends, so we planned a trip to see them, photograph their families, do some personal work, and just get out explore and have an adventure. So fun! Here’s some of the highlights from the trip:

Wouldn’t be Seattle without a trip to Pike Place!

On our second day, we headed up to Snoqualmie Falls and up into the mountains with our awesome friends and guides, Airika and Gerald

So obviously this seems like no big deal with the snow everyone has gotten lately LOL, but in October 2012, it felt like it had been FOREVER since I had seen snow! So pretty πŸ™‚

Another day, we drove up through the Olympic National Forest. We love driving and exploring on trips, and it was so gorgeous. I really even loved the overcast and clouds and intermittent rain!

We ended up at La Push (not because we’re huge Twilight fans! Although it was amusing to see all the Twilight stuff) to see the sea stacks–giant rock formations just off the coast. Absolutely incredible.

We had to hike a little ways to reach this beach, and it was almost spooky how quiet everything was. We were also in the rain forest at this point, which was pretty awesome!

One of my favorites of the trip!

We also got to photograph some awesome people! Including past wedding clients Carrie and Austin, and their dog, Icebox! They also let us stay with them for part of our trip, which we were SO thankful for!

And these cuties! Who are so much more grown up now I can hardly stand it πŸ™‚ And a huge thanks to their parents, also past wedding clients, Steven and Priscilla for letting us stay with them for the other part of our trip!

We also did a session with illustrator Andy Musser as part of our Artist Project. He is seriously incredible, and one of the nicest people we’ve ever met!

The weather was absolutely GORGEOUS the last day we were in town! We went across the bay and had the incredible view of the skyline, along with a double rainbow

We also drove over to Whidbey Island (which is actually where my dad was stationed with the Marines when I was born! Fun facts about Jen Creed πŸ˜‰ )

I can’t wait to go back! I think a little part of our hearts definitely belong in the Pacific Northwest. Thank you all for stopping by the blog, and happy Tuesday!

    Terry Neuzil - You two are absolutely incredible. You have done well with your God given talent. I want to go to Washington now and see all these things I haven’t seen in all the times I have been there. Thanks for sharing.
