Despite gray skies and a little rain I had a wonderful time photographing Melissa and Matthew's engagement session at Fort Worden on Saturday. The weather certainly didn't dampen the spirits of this handsome young couple. Melissa brought magazine images of several poses she liked and Matthew was very patient with my requests for, "just one more photo". We walked the beach for a bit then brought the dogs from the car for a couple family photos and then drove to the nearest bunkers for some more images. Afterwards we met at the Bayview for coffee and discussed the details of their May wedding at the Farm Kitchen near Poulsbo. I enjoyed learning about all the details of the wedding and hearing the story on how they first met. I actually photographed both Melissa and Matthew last year when they needed professional photos for their work. We also talked about their families and how important their faith is in their life's. I can't wait to photograph their wedding and I'm honored they have picked me as their photographer.
