Downtown Seattle Engagement // Patrick & Marc

When Patrick & Marc said they wanted to do their engagement shoot in downtown Seattle, my first thought was to start at the Market because it's always a couple favorite. But these guys like to do things differently and were dead set against the Market (though we did meet up there for ease of communication) and so we started down in Post Alley. 

While wandering down there, past the gross gum wall which I still don't understand is an attraction, we came across a little square of green in amongst all the brick. I of course had to use it, it can be tough to find uncrowded green areas downtown, and later found out it was actually the patio for the pub across the way. Oops! Thankfully nobody came over while we were there. 

From Post Alley we headed down to the waterfront where Marc & Patrick debated whether if they hoisted a flag in their yard, whether they could see it from beside the wheel. The consensus was that we would be able to. Just as we were finishing up at the waterfront one of the ferries pulled in and I of course had to snap a pic of them with it in the background. Does it get more iconically Seattle than that?

To finish up we headed towards Pioneer Square, stopping briefly outside the old Seattle Post Office on First. I've always loved the Art Deco statues out the front and the guys looked great next to them in their classic suits. We were able to find some more green in a side street before finishing in a beautiful square just as the sun went behind the buildings. 

Patrick and Marc have such a quiet, sweet love for each other. Full of knowing glances and big smiles. I can't wait for their wedding day later this month at the Columbia Tower. How many people can say they were married at the highest point in Seattle?
