Summer Sunset Overlook Park Engagement Session

Aug 5, 2021

Summer sunset overlook park engagement session.

As fate may have it…

Whoever thought a company “broom ball” tournament could be a foreshadow to a summer sunset overlook park engagement session?? Not I! But that’s exactly what happened to Katarina and Gavin!
The two met in Seattle when fate put the two of them together on the same broom ball team. Gavin was instantly drawn to Katarina’s athleticism and smile and quickly decided to get to know her. Katarina, wasn’t too far behind on noticing him as well. Her draw was towards his humor and kindness.

What started out as friendly competition turned into a close relationship!

Drinks were shared. Guac was enjoyed. Trips were taken. This relationship continued to blossom every time they were together! It didn’t matter if their plans got messed up, Katarina and Gavin always found a way to make the most of every situation!

Laughter is the best medicine!

Gavin is full of great one-liners and hilarious jokes! Even during the engagement session, he’d pull one out of thing air and catch me off guard with how funny it was! To have a woman that always laughs at those jokes is one of his favorite parts about Katarina! But, just like what caught his eye from the beginning, her smile constantly wins out for his favorite thing about her. Just a small glance over to her during the session was all he needed to feel calm and comfortable the whole way through.

He is truly smitten by her!

That same comfort is felt by Katarina, too! He is constantly thinking about her and just making sure she is happy. It’s the little things that go the farthest. Holding her hand as they walk in the grass. Stomping down the tall grass, so it doesn’t tickle her leg. Brushing her hair back when it falls in her face. Small moments. But seeing them throughout the session, solidifies that these two are truly meant to be together!

It is such a special connection!

Our summer sunset overlook park engagement session went by way to fast! Before we knew it, the sunset was faded, and the darkness was setting in! I can’t wait until the wedding day when I get to have you in front of my camera for so many more hours! Especially because it is at the beautiful Barn at Silverstone! Have I told you all how much I love that place? It’s a ton!!! Until July 2022 comes around, though, I hope these favorites can hold you over!

I mean, you guys were stunning!!

Keep making each other laugh. Live like you are in a fairytale, and always show your love even in the small ways! Loved finally meeting you two in person! Let the countdown begin!!!

XOXO ~ Heather Marie
