Golden Gardens engagement session: Courtney + Sean

January 29, 2016


It was love at first swipe. Well, practically. After matching on Tinder and going out to dinner and dessert at the Cheesecake Factory for their first date, Courtney and Sean agree that it took them just two weeks more to know that they had found the person they wanted to marry. When Sean decided to pop the question last May, he took Courtney out to a special restaurant. At the end of their meal he told her, “Now you can have your real dessert,” and presented her with a beautiful engagement ring. Icing on the cake, indeed.

Courtney and Sean are currently living in Dallas, but Courtney is originally from Edmonds, WA, so we did their engagement session at Golden Gardens in Seattle over the holidays. It was jusssst a bit blustery and chilly, but these two kept each other cozy. I can’t wait for their wedding at the Seattle Yacht Club this July!


Sean can get a laugh out of Courtney at the drop of a hat.golden-gardens-engagement-seattle-02 golden-gardens-engagement-seattle-03 golden-gardens-engagement-seattle-04

Initially, Sean wasn’t too hyped about the idea of a photo session…but he’s pretty dang happy as long as he’s got Courtney in his arms. And I thinnnk he’d admit that he actually had a good time. 😉golden-gardens-engagement-seattle-07

I’ll end with my favorite image from the day – I love how they stand out from the background. 🙂golden-gardens-engagement-seattle-08

Thanks for an awesome time together, Courtney and Sean!
