Samantha + Jacob | Engagement at the Seattle Arboretum

One of the reasons I love being a Seattle wedding photographer is because I get to meet people like Samantha. I liked Samantha from the moment I met her at the Bellevue Wedding Show. She was friendly, sweet, and easy to talk to. While Samantha and her fiancé Jacob’s wedding isn’t for over a year, they needed to do their engagement session before mid-May. You see, Jacob is in the Navy and he is being deployed to the Middle East for the 6th time.

They love the outdoors, so we decided to do the engagement pictures at the Seattle Arboretum. We totally lucked out with a gorgeous day. And, I had no idea if the trees would even be in bloom…I was so happy when I rounded the corner to see the gorgeous pink magic! Speaking of gorgeous, isn’t this couple ridiculously gorgeous?!

Samantha thought for sure she would never date a military guy…and then Jacob came along;)
