Jaymee + Rob | Go Purple Be Gold!
Today I decided to do a little something special with the blog. This evening the University of Washington will be playing Oregon in the final game before construction begins on what will be the new Husky Stadium. So, in honor of the final days of this historic, albeit a bit outdated, venue I'll be posting a blog for each team. While normally I believe in deferring, first up, Huskies!
About a month ago I met up with Jaymee, Rob, and the adorably photogenic Louie at their place in Bellevue. Monday afternoons aren't really the best time for crossing the 520 and they decided wisely that carpooling would be our best bet.
After a quick beer and a little snacking at The Ram, we began our shoot outside of Husky Stadium where the bronze statue of Kibo (by local artist Georgia Gerber) stands welcoming fans, students, and visitors to campus. A couple quick picks in front of Hec Ed and Louie's own photo shoot with a purple and gold hydrant and we were off to Suzzallo library for some quick and quiet photo ops. We ended our day back on the Eastside at the beautiful Willows Lodge for a couple more photos and a great glass of red to round out our busy afternoon.
I had an absolute blast with these guys and hope to see them again, perhaps a trip to Louie's agility class is in order? Big congrats on your upcoming wedding, I wish you both (and the Huskies) the very best!
