Love in the Great Northwest | Anna + Lars
First of all, let me just mention that you may want to get comfy for a sec. I have a ton of images and a lot of words to share from my super fun day with a super fun couple.
Anna and Lars are adorable. They both grew up here in the Pacific Northwest and love all of the awesome things that make this place great. Ferries, mountains, walking their dogs, lakes, trees, and the Sounders- seriously, what more could you ask for?
So on Mother's Day, we met up in Madison Park to try to cram all of these fabulous things into a few hours of engagement photos. After goofing around on the pier a bit and attempting to feed the Canada geese only to be hissed at, they donned their Sounders best (including Anna's super cool shoes!) for a few cheers.
We then headed back to Lars' place to pick up the pups, Loki (the lab) + Maverick (the puggle), for some walkies and a little water time. Then it was back in the car and off to West Seattle! We parked at Lincoln Park and snapped a few shots while walking down to the ferry terminal.
We walked on the ferry and after snapping away for 15 minutes or so, quickly docked on Vashon Island. Our plan wasn't to disembark, we were just going along for the ride, so we stayed put. We quickly learned that's not how the Washington State Ferry System works, everyone must disembark the vessel. So disembark the vessel we did and with a quick pivot, got right back on and sailed back to Seattle.
To cap off our day of fun, this super awesome duo treated me to a delicious BLTA and and a nice cold beer at Endolyne Joe's, one of their favorite Eats in West Seattle.
I know that i say this a lot, but it couldn't be more true for these two- I simply cannot wait for their wedding in Ollala this July. So, enough of my yapping (told you this was going to be a long one...) If you need to step away for a quick potty break, do so now. Lots of adorable photos are eagerly awaiting your return...
