We have been so excited to share this most recent estate engagement session with you! Being wedding photographers means that we get the opportunity to meet and become friends with many new couples each year! Our engagement sessions are usually one of the first times that we really start getting to know our couples. That’s one reason why we LOVE doing Engagement sessions so much!! We first heard about Julia & Paul’s engagement from the mother of one of our previous brides, Kayla (click here to see Kayla & Steven’s wedding day)! Kayla’s mom (Tina) and Julia’s mom work together and had been chatting about Julia’s recent engagement a lot. We were thrilled when Julia contacted us based on Tina’s recommendation!
How they Met
Paul and Julia met at Western Washington University in Bellingham. As Julia remembers the way they met, she says…”We met at a BBQ at Western about 2 years ago. Paul asked me out for a drink and I was hesitant at first because I was in a relationship at the time. But I went anyway” Needless to say, she’s glad she made that decision (and Paul is too)! 🙂
Julia and Paul are so sweet and it’s evident that they are absolutely smitten with each other. When we were photographing their engagement session we even commented to each other that they truly looked “In Love”. You know that “look” (you will see it in the way that they look at each other in their Engagement pictures)!
Skagit Valley Engagement Bliss
Paul and Julia knew they wanted their engagement session ASAP (or at least as soon as the weather got a bit nicer) since they are getting married this autumn. They wanted to have the session… on the family farm where Julia had been raised. We couldn’t think of a better location for them. When couples want to have their session somewhere that has meaning to them, we just love it! We had so much fun laughing, sharing life, and getting to know them so much better.
As the sun was setting and we were finishing up, we just kept hanging out and chatting! We found out about their dreams, their plans for the future and the priorities they have made for their life together. It’s rare that you meet a couple that seems to have everything going for them at such a young age, but Paul and Julia are that rare couple for sure.
We’re so thrilled with their images and had so much fun. We can’t wait for the upcoming wedding in North Seattle this coming October. Enjoy these images, this Engagement couldn’t have been brighter!
