I was going to photograph Sharmeen and Jules’ wedding on May 10th, but they had to postpone their big day for a future date when the Army decided to relocate them to Fairbanks, Alaska. So, we made do with a great engagement portrait session at Point Defiance Park just a few days before their moving van hit the road.

I shoot more engagement portrait sessions at Point Defiance Park than all other places put together for a good reason — it’s amazing! Here, we start at the Japanese Garden.

Then we drove down to Owen Beach, which is a picture-perfect representation of the rocky, driftwood-strewn beaches of Washington State. Even its weathered concrete seawall makes for a great backdrop!

Our last stop was my favorite little section of the native rain forest that makes up the heart of Point Defiance Park. Because this section is particularly shady, the moss grows thicker and greener on the forest floor, and the whole area practically glows green.
