You know it's going to be a fantastic photography session when a client texts you right before saying "Come on in and have a glass of wine!". That is what Elizabeth did and it was just the beginning of this fun evening e-session. 

It was a delight to be one of the first testers of the champagne Michael and Elizabeth plan to have at their wedding. (Please note I will be a champagne tester anytime (: )  I also had the pleasure of viewing some of Michael's amazing large format film landscape photography he had up on the walls of the house. Seriously. to. die. for. amazing! So after a tour of Michael's gorgeous Tacoma home we poured some champagne and headed out to the backyard for photos. We also incorporated their love of Elizabeth's racer red Mini Cooper. Elizabeth jokes that Michael is only marrying her for her car but the way he looks at her instantly gives away that there is at least a million more reasons he has fallen for this lovely lady. 

All that to say this couple absolutely glows when they are together. You can tell they have met their heart's twin <3

Thank you Elizabeth and Michael for choosing me to photograph your love. So excited for your wedding in August. xo! -C.
