It was almost exactly two years ago that I first posted this very adorable session of Cami & Eric at Lake Merritt in Oakland. These two have been in a long distance relationship for the last three years while living in varying combinations of Oakland, Seattle, Rome, and Phoenix. It wasn’t until this past June that Cami and Eric were finally reunited in their hometown of Seattle for good. And in July, in the city they love most, the place where it all began, and on Cami’s birthday no less, Eric proposed. Hooray!
It was an amazingly gorgeous day in Seattle when I met up with Cami and Eric at the iconic Pike Place Market to photograph their engagement session.
Moments in the hustle and bustle.
This is either disgusting or cute or perhaps a little bit of both– the famous “gum wall” in Seattle’s Pike Place. At least Eric and Cami are adorable for sure.
A very appropriate reaction on the right.
I am in love with Cami’s gorgeous eyes.
We took full advantage of the late afternoon light.
I love that we got to capture their city on such a gorgeous day. Eric is a huge sports fan so it’s nice we caught those stadiums in the background too.
If you squint a bit, you can even see Mt. Ranier back there.
Congratulations Cami & Eric! Looking forward to my next Seattle trip up for your wedding in July!
Technical note: Four of these images were shot on 35mm Portra 400H film! Can you guess which? I think they blend in quite nicely.
