Painting with Wind and Light: Nate & Lauren's Engagement Photos

April 11, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Y'know, every time I shoot a wedding for someone at my church, I think to myself "Welp. That's it. That's all the people of marrying age. I'm done with Elim weddings forever."

But people keep growing up, falling in love, and getting engaged. And man does that make my heart glad. Not only do I get to continue to work with a big group of people I deeply enjoy, it's a great reminder for my own life of how faithful God is to bring growth and good. Things are never stagnant, it seems.

But I digress. For Nate & Lauren's session, I convinced them to let us take them out to Port Townsend-- a good 2-hour drive from our home in Puyallup, but one of our favorite locations. The town is adjacent to Fort Worden, which is one of the coolest places I know of in Washington. Aside from the natural scenic beauty, the fort itself is open to exploration, including some underground rooms that you can *totally* cut off from outside light.

Which allows us to pull off some REALLY neat light painting like this:

So check it out! We spent some time outside enduring the coastal winds, and then retreated indoors to try some fun lighting painting photos. More of that near the end of the post, I think you'll like some of the neat ideas we came up with!



Think you might want to discuss your engagement or wedding plans with us? Shoot us an email or give us a call! We'd love to hear from you.
