Ben + Lolly truly are meant for each other. Lolly + Ben both grew up on Mercer Island and even attended the same high school, though a different times…and even though their lives were in such close proximity – it took flying out to Hawaii for a friends destination wedding for these two to connect! During their time at the wedding – Lolly definitely made an impression, so upon returning home to Seattle Ben knew he didn’t want to continue walking through this journey without Lolly by his side!
When I first met Lolly – we instantly connected! She is so sweet and welcoming! She told me about her family’s beach house out in Allyn, WA and how special it was for her and her family – and it is also the location where Ben proposed! I could not picture a better spot for their engagement session! Lolly + Ben and Lolly’s family were so wonderful and invited Agustin and I (and Toby!) to join them for an evening on the beach – we took their engagement photos then they invited us to share a meal together! It’s not every day that I get to meet a couple’s family so early on in the process and it was amazing!! And after spending more time with Lolly and then meeting her family – I could see where she got her welcoming heart from! I absolutely loved building those connections and I can’t wait to celebrate with them for Lolly + Ben’s wedding at Chihuly Glass museum in March!
This is the very spot where Ben asked Lolly to forever be by his side and be his wife!
It was a perfect day in the PNW and you could see Mt Rainier!
Agustin + Toby got to join us on the boat as we were taking photos of Lolly + Ben in the canoe! Lolly’s dad was so sweet and took us out on the boat wherever we needed to go to get the best shots! It was perfect :)
