Lincoln Park Engagement // Sarah + Skyler


We are elated to share Sarah and Skyler’s beautiful Lincoln Park Engagement shoot with you.  

Lincoln Park is located in the West Seattle neighborhood of Seattle, WA. It is known for its panoramic views of Puget Sound along its rocky beaches, as well as its forested areas, meadows, and bluffs. Lincoln Park provided a stunning natural backdrop for Sarah and Skyler’s engagement shoot, and the lighting couldn’t have been better. With sunshine spilling through the trees on these two, many of their images featured that coveted golden light. The two shared a lot of smiles and laughs throughout their photoshoot and the diverse landscape gave them a lot of opportunities to play. 

Sarah and Skyler were dressed for the Pacific Northwest fall for their photos. Sarah wore jeans, a taupe sweater, an autumnal scarf, and her glistening engagement ring. Skyler wore black jeans, a red sweater, and an army green bomber jacket. The beaches of Lincoln Park host many long, driftwood logs washed ashore. Walking hand-in-hand, Sarah stood atop a driftwood log as the pair posed for pictures. When considering Lincoln Park for an engagement shoot, a couple might want to consider the terrain. It would be challenging to wear heels on the trails and rocky beaches, so Sarah wore ankle boots. Our team at Sound Originals is always prepared for a shoot in any setting and we enjoyed our session with Sarah and Skyler. 

As Sarah and Skyler strolled through the forested areas of Lincoln Park, many birds could be heard. Lincoln Park is truly an urban sanctuary, and is a major migratory destination for a variety of bird species. The park is known for its bald eagles, ravens, crows, and even owls. The Audubon Society has documented over sixty species of birds at Lincoln Park. While birds flew gracefully overhead, Sarah and Skyler stepped on fallen leaves across the forest floor. In one of the open meadows, Skyler dipped Sarah back for a kiss. We love to see how couples make their engagement photos uniquely their own. 

Every couple has a story to tell and we are honored to get to tell it. Please enjoy their photos!

Lincoln Park Net Worth

Some people might confuse this Seattle Park, named Lincoln Park, with the American rock band Linkin Park. Back in 1922, the City of Seattle approved the acquisition of this beloved park. Originally, the Olmsted Brothers Landscape Architecture firm had recommended the park in 1908. The Olmsted Brothers firm had called the park the “Williams Point Park,” but the city of Seattle named the park “Fauntleroy Park” due to its location in the Fauntleroy neighborhood. The park eventually became Lincoln Park; it was renamed to honor president Abraham Lincoln. Trip Advisor reflects that Lincoln Park is number fifty-seven on this list of over four hundred things to do in Seattle. There are many reviews that speak to the magic of this park and how it feels so hidden. Lincoln Park is free to access and the parking is free, which makes it an easy destination to visit.

Lincoln Park Instagram

Lincoln Park’s main webpage is run by the City of Seattle. However, there are Instagram pages dedicated to this park in Seattle. The Friends of Lincoln Park are a group of individuals who are stewards of the forest and focus on forest restoration. These individuals work hard to plant seedlings and ensure that the forest stays abundant and supports the local ecosystems in Seattle. If you are on Instagram, you can search for the hashtag #lincolnparkwestseattle to see how others enjoy the park and all of the natural wonders it has to offer. There is even the chance that you will see sea lions, seals, or orca whales from the shores of Lincoln Park’s beachfront. The Whale Trail is a non-profit that works to educate the public on offshore marine mammal sightings. Lincoln Park is one of the locations where they have informational signage. Who knows? Maybe your next photoshoot here will have a special oceanic guest splashing in the background!

Lincoln Park Wedding

Lincoln Park is not one of the venues that the City of Seattle permits for wedding ceremonies. However, the City of Seattle does have rentable pavilions at Lincoln Park that can be booked for a picnic. If you want to have a low-key, outdoor reception, then this might be the right spot for you! One of their rentable pavilions even has a built-in fireplace and chimney, making this picnic area perfect on a cooler fall day. The capacity for a picnic at Lincoln Park ranges from 90-300 individuals, which could accommodate a lot of your wedding guests if your guest list is moderately sized. The City of Seattle has provided a frequently asked questions document to help with your planning.
