On a rainy winter Seattle night, Chris+I met up with Suryn+Shawn at a Seattle Starbucks to discuss their wedding in more detail. I remember getting really amped up for the meeting because I was extremely excited about their wedding location. This August, Suryn+Shawn will tie the knot in Leavenworth, WA at The Sleeping Lady resort. Chris+I had previously shot a wedding here before and we just fell in love with this place. However, after we talked and chatted over coffee with Suryn+Shawn, we fell in love with them even more.
We were definitely excited to work with Suryn+Shawn after postponing our initial shoot due to rain (Seattle…figures!). They arrived at our first location, Pioneer Square, looking prim, cute, and super nervous. And as luck would have it, the Sounder’s game had just let out. Meaning…loads of people were walking around in the area. It didn’t phase them though, and as these pictures show, they totally brought their A game. There’s this vulnerability about Suryn that’s hard to describe in words. But her eyes are fierce, her smile is mesmerizing so it’s no wonder Shawn is crazily in love. And well…Shawn…I mean…just look at that smile! These two made our job that day so easy, so we can’t be more excited to work with them again on their wedding day. For now, take a peek at their engagement photos below.
