It was a cold Saturday morning for Bethany and Reuben’s Pioneer Square Engagement session in January.
Reuben and Bethany met through their best friends. After exchanging messages through Facebook for over two weeks, they went on their first date. They got engaged last year in July, and it was very spontaneous. Reuben had the engagement ring for over a month, but he was waiting for the right time to propose. Bethany was teasing him about not having the ring, so a few minutes later, he gets the ring and asks her to marry him! As a result of her excitement, she had many tears.
These two have great personalities. They are dog parents to two adorable dogs, Cheesecake and Nendo. Reuben brings out the goofier side of Bethany but also keeps her grounded. They are also big foodies and with a growing Lego collection.
Before each portrait session, my couples and I discuss that the session should be intentional, not forced. Since we had scheduled their session for a Saturday morning, I asked them what a typical Saturday would be like if they were on a date. They told me they would go out for coffee and a walk around the city. I suggested that’s what we do for their engagement photos around Pioneer Square!
I appreciated that Reuben and Bethany trusted my vision for their engagement session. They went with the flow for what I had in mind, and I’m so glad they did! These two were laid back and real during the whole session. It was almost like I wasn’t even there.
Their session began with a cup of coffee from Caffè Umbria. After enjoying their coffee, we started wandering around the city. Since it was a chilly morning, the streets were empty. It was fun to explore around Pioneer Square with these two lovebirds.
I can’t wait to photograph their wedding; I just know it will be amazing. For now, I hope you enjoy their
