Katrina and Moussa are such a gorgeous couple, and I’m so excited to share the radiating love and happiness captured during their engagement session at Seattle’s Discovery Park. Katrina and Moussa met in high school but didn’t see much of each other until college. While Katrina attended UW, Moussa would visit some of their mutual friends, but it wasn’t until Moussa moved back to Seattle that they connected and started to officially date. As they say, the rest is history.
Moussa proposed on Katrina’s birthday with a jaw-dropping oval-shaped diamond. She was expecting a small birthday dinner- just the two- but he had other plans. Moussaproposed to her at Gas Works Park and then took her dinner, surprising her with all of her loved ones at their favorite cocktail bar. Moussa proposed to Katrina on her birthday as an ode to those college days where almost every year, they spend Katrina’s birthday together, which is incredibly thoughtful if you ask me!
Their favorite date night is getting dinner on the waterfront, followed by sharing a bottle of wine at a cozy lounge. They also love exploring the city together and playing tourists in their town of Seattle.
The Engagement Session
We decided to do Katrina and Moussa’s engagement session at Discovery Park in Seattle, WA. Katrina wore a stunning satin gown and nude heels for the first half of the session. Her dress fit her bubbly personality so well. Moussa wore black pants and a white button-up to complement their elegant evening look. We went down to the beach for the last half of their engagement session, and with that came an outfit change. Katrina and Moussa’s trendy style was perfect for this part of the session; they both wore jeans and their favorite sneakers, which created a cozy, playful look! It was a chilly night at the beach, but we popped champagne and laughed the whole session!
It’s important to make our couples feel comfortable in front of our cameras and bring out their unique personalities. We know taking your photo can be nerve-racking, which is why we like to keep our sessions as fun and lighthearted as possible. Don’t just take my word for it; take a peek at Katrina’s sweet testimonial from her time with us:
“We selected Stormy because we loved her light and airy style. Little did we know we were also getting such a lovely and joyous woman to work with!! She is so sweet and made what could be an awkward couple of hours of posing feel like a fun adventure date night with my fiancé. He is always someone who has a hard time smiling on cue but with her presence and joking with us, we got his real smile throughout the shoot. She over-delivered in every aspect of this process, and we are only just getting started. We LOVE our engagement photos.”
We are now booking for the 2023 wedding season and would love to chat!
