You can’t find a more gorgeous place to have engagement photos done! The Washington Park Arboretum is perfect. The location in Seattle is amazing. With only a small window of time for the blossoms Lauren and Nathan chose this location! We met with the couple and had an amazing time. We strolled through the trees and captured amazing photos. It did not matter that it was an overcast day. The cherry blossoms stole the show. Lauren and Nathan chose this location for the beauty. As a result we love how their photos came out! Lauren looked beautiful in her white cotton dress. Their outfits were perfect for the session.

We took many photos among the trees. Stopping to capture perfect moments. The couple even brought a blanket to be able to sit and enjoy. This allowed us to capture some very relaxed moments. The couple decided to quickly change outfits to change the look of photos. We also walked a bit further and captured different photos. The location not far from the cherry blossoms offered a more woodsy feel. This also made for beautiful photo’s of the couple.

The Washington Park Arboretum is a favorite among couples for photos. This location has many cherry blossoms. It also has wooded areas on its 230 acre property. The park contains a dynamic assortment of plants, some found nowhere else in the Northwest! There is the Graham Visitor Center for guests to visit.

The arboretum is located in Seattle and is just 10 minutes from downtown. This makes the location very convenient to visit by car or public transportation. Just outside of the park is Montlake.
