This past Wednesday was an early morning, for sure! Jess + Nick initially wanted to have their engagement session at Gold Creek Pond in Snoqualmie, but it’s a bit of a jaunt from the Eastside in the morning traffic. It was about 5am when we switched the location from Snoqualmie to Houghton Beach in Kirkland. At this new location, we were able to still get photos by the water and all the greenery of the PNW. A bonus was that we found a cute birch tree at the park. Jess + Nick are incorporating birches into their wedding day, so it was perfect.
Even though early mornings are typically difficult for me, I always jump out of bed for sunrise sessions. I find myself mentally preparing myself for sessions well in advance, mostly out of excitement. I also like to build my energy up.
Jessica + Nick we so adorable during their session and the love you can see in their photos really speak to that. Usually I work really hard to get genuine smiles from my couples and they made each other laugh so often, that my job was easy peasy. You’ll have to keep an eye on the SP Blog because these cuties are getting married in TWO WEEKS in Leavenworth, WA!! Congratulations, Jess + Nick; we are so excited for your wedding day 🙂
