Karen + Thong: Picnic Anniversary Session

Here comes the cutest little anniversary shoot with two of our favorite people, Karen and Thong, in the unpredictable city of Seattle, Washington. We first met this adorable duo when they contacted us for an engagement shoot in 2010, and an amazing San Francisco adventure ensued! We loved hanging out with this quirky couple! The feeling must have been mutual, because they booked us for their wedding in 2011, a fabulous affair in Texas, and they’re back for more!

We worked with Rachel Bowes of Finch & Thistle Event Design to plan a shoot that was rustic and romantic, with some totally unique artistic elements thrown in for fun. We love the creativity of this energetic team!

Hiding from the weather, Karen and Thong cuddle up to eachother for a romantic indoor picnic. It doesn’t look like any of the romance has been lost since the last time we photographed these two!
