Everett Courthouse Elopement // Gina & Ross

Everett Courthouse Elopement // Gina & Ross

It was a cold and blustery day when I stepped out of Narrative Coffee to go meet Gina & Ross. We had planned to meet up outside the Courthouse in downtown Everett an hour before their appointment with the Judge. The plan was to do some outdoor portraits of the couple before we headed inside. That was the plan, but the reality was it was freezing cold, 30 degrees to be exact, and what little warmth the sun had brought that day was receding fast. Would they still be up for it?

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! - Seattle Portrait Photography

For the first time in a good few years, it snowed in Seattle this past week. Enough for it to actually lie on the ground I mean. But of course by the next day it was gone, gone, gone. Which made going up to Vancouver to shoot a family portrait session for Jasmine and her family all the better because they had a TON of snow!

The best part was watching her pups Zephyr and Woody run around in it, poor Woody was barely bigger than the snow was deep so it was a lot of effort for him to charge around and keep up with Zephyr. In between their mad dashes we were able to get some cute images and once everyone confirmed that they couldn't feel their fingers any longer we headed back inside for some hot cocoa.
