Cold Hands, Warm Hearts: Teresa + Manuel

Teresa is lifelong friends with the owners of Fleurae Floral and was recommended to contact me for engagement and wedding photography. Of course, any friend of Fleurae is a friend of mine (good vibes all around!!), so I already knew this was going to be a really fun time. Teresa and Manuel wanted to shoot in a space that was special to them and Priest Point Park in Olympia was that haven. I love the scenery in this shoot — it's such a great reminder of how lucky we are to live in a place that is as gorgeous and alive in the winter as it is in the summer.

I can't say it enough, but I really am so grateful for my clients. These two were SO playful and willing to go along with any idea I threw at them, which made for some of my favorite, emotional images to date — the shot where Manuel picks Teresa up and spins her around gives me all the feels!! Teresa's smile is an open book — you can see how happy he makes her. 

This shoot also reminded me how gorgeous and cozy winter wear is!! Wool coats, killer shoes and all winter accessories make for awesome seasonal memories.

As if I didn't already love them enough, Teresa and Manuel are an amazing couple who care deeply about our Pacific Northwest Community. Teresa is currently running for Seattle City Council Position 8 and I have no doubt she'll win and create a more just and equitable society. I am so thankful for their huge hearts and ambition to make our home a better place. This shoot may be chilly, but I am honored to have captured two of the warmest people.
