Karen + Thong: Romantic Anniversary Shoot

We just can’t get enough of Karen and Thong’s beautiful Seattle Anniversaryphoto shoot! They are such a unique, romantic couple that we love working with them. The adventures we’ve had are amazing!  We’ve followed them from their engagement shoot in San Francisco, to their fabulous wedding in Texas, and now we’re wrapping up their rustic picnic anniversary shoot in Seattle, Washington.

The fabulous styling and props we can credit to Finch and Thistle Events, who were a dream to work with in Seattle, Washington. Karen and Thong worked with us as well as Finch and Thistle Events to create a memorable picnic photo shoot, complete with natural elements, intimate moments, and beautiful scenery. We’ve showcased two installments of their wonderful photographs, so it’s time to finish up with the third. Enjoy! nature engagement anniversary shootIsn’t nature a magical place? It’s the perfect setting for a romantic anniversary picnic!

These two are straight out of a fairytale! If only it was everyday we could sneak off to the forest to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life.
