Seattle Engagement Photography | Linh+Celso | University of Washington and Gasworks Park

Saturday, April 27th, 2013

It took several months of emailing for Linh+Celso to finally meet one another.  It started as what Linh thought was a networking opportunity, but turned slowly, rightfully, into true love.  It’s the way they talk, not just to each other, but about one another, that makes people like us who have only been around them for a short amount of time, know that they will make it as a couple.

Linh is the organized planner and Celso is a fabulous artist in his own way.  Together, they are planning for one of the year’s greatest weddings.  Linh+Celso are both connected with their heritage, and want to respectfully honor their culture on their wedding day.  They also both have families from all around the US and the world coming to their special day.  It will be a day filled with tradition, reunion, and celebration.

We cannot wait for their wedding, but in the meantime, enjoy a sneak peek of their engagement session below.

Seattle Portrait Photography | Jean+Jun+Bump | Discovery Park

Jean and I have been friends since high school.  And I’ve said this before, but I don’t remember ever meeting her.  And she doesn’t remember meeting me either.  In our memories, we were just in each others’ lives since around 1995 or so.  In high school, I was not one of the popular ones.  I had a little bit more than a handful of good girl friends I talked on the phone with and wrote notes to.  Those friendships lasted through college and to this day, we’re just as close as we’ve ever been.

Jean and I literally chat every single day.  If a day goes by without chatting with her, it feels like something’s misaligned.  I was in her wedding when she married her high school sweetheart, Jun, and she was my maid of honor when Chris and I got hitched.  A friendship like this doesn’t come by very often and I’m truly blessed for woman like Jean in my life.

Throughout the years of chatting daily with Jean, I’ve noticed our conversations take their slow turns, depending on where we are in our lives.  Currently, we chat a lot about babies and motherhood.  I’m blessed to be able to share with her in this, probably one of the happiest times of her life, and I truly can not wait to meet her and Jun’s little baby boy.  It was a long journey to get here, but a really good one.  I can’t be more happy for these two parents-to-be’s.  Enjoy their recent baby bump stroll through the park below and I’ll be excited to post photos of the little boy when he arrives.
