Planning the Magic

Today we’ll be talking about one of my favorite beaches for photo sessions! These Golden Gardens Beach Engagement Photos are from one of my favorite engagement sessions from 2021! Gloria and Rory are both Cornell University Alumni who recently celebrated two major milestones this year. In addition to graduating from Cornell University with her Master’s in Fine Arts this Spring, they just got engaged!

Glo I connected earlier that year to begin the planning process, discussing wardrobe, theme, and location of their engagement session. Whenever you are planning a photo session, it is so important to plan your session in detail to get the results you’re looking for. I offer a planning consultation for each and every engagement session I photograph and encourage couples to walk through all of their details with me! During our consultation I could hear their happiness over the phone and I became even more excited to meet this couple! After some virtual planning and discussing several outdoor locations, they chose Golden Gardens Beach Park- a popular Ballard beach in North Seattle for its landscape, almost-white sand, and beach volleyball crowd.

Wedding Planning

When it comes to planning, these two are not to stressed because their parents are doing most of the heavy lifting! The wedding details are still being planned by Gloria’s family in Tanzania. However, from what they’ve described it sounds beautiful because it will be in TANZANIA ( I’m a little jealous I won’t get to photograph it because that is just a STUNNING visual)!

An Elegant Session On the Beach

Rory and Gloria looked so elegant wearing a pink chiffon maxi dress, and a chic navy suit. Despite the sweltering temperatures didn’t bother them at all. On the contrary, they accepted the challenge! Toward the end, they let loose and enjoyed board games and champagne by sunset. Coupled with the beautiful scenery and their amazing attitudes, we had an amazing time hanging out and getting stunning photos despite the 100+ degree weather on a Friday night in June ( super rare!)Check out this stunning session and learn more about Gloria and Rory. It was recently featured in BlackBride.com !
