Eva called me to take some photos of her and Jon to share with friends and family to announce their recent marriage. It sounded like a fun session, another evening on Alki, and another cold night!
Here's a bit they shared with me about their history.
"Jon and I met after a Mariner's game almost 10 years ago and have been inseparable ever since. We went to Italy in October 2010, and while in our favorite Tuscan hillside town of Cortona (of Under the Tuscan Sun fame), one beautiful moonlit evening while looking out over the Tuscan valley, Jon got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. The wine in our photos was some of the same wine we enjoyed while in Cortona and the Montepulciano region. We have lived together in West Seattle for over 7 years and it's a big part of our lives. That is why we wanted our photos taken around the area."
Well the story is so romantic isn't it? A proposal in Italy, on a moonlit evening overlooking the gorgeous Tuscan countryside? Does it get any better than that? And I gotta say, Under the Tuscan Sun is one of my fave movies!!
It was such a pleasure to photograph these two, and lots of fun for me since it was actually my first "couples" session. Here's to many more! I hope you two enjoy your sneak peeks!
the wind was blowing so hard, I caught the wine pouring sideways!
Probably the last time I'll be able to capture the pretty spring blossoms in my sessions. And the sun made an ever so brief appearance! Just long enough to get some flare!!
