Katie and Wade Coastal Engagement

I love when engagement sessions are personal.  Wade proposed to Katie on the shores of Mukilteo Beach with their dog Tiller.  After days of rain and even more rain in the forecast, we stumbled upon a beautiful afternoon that gave us plenty of  warm sunlight and a dramatic background of clouds that moved in at sunset. I love that Katie chose soft pinks that complimented her skin tone and created a soft palette against the green of the rocks and grass along the shore.    It is clear that this couple is not only insanely gorgeous and photogenic, but madly in love with each other and quite daring!  As the evening come to an end Katie and Wade found their feet in cold Sound water for some of my favorite images, ever!   I can't wait for their wedding in Woondville this fall, which  will no doubt we beautiful against the grapevines and wine barrels of Colombia Winery
