I've known Ryan since he was born (read: cousins); and we were the best of buds growing up (even across state lines in Michigan and Illinois). Then we grew up, and I got to watch him meet and grow and love Amanda. I took both of their senior photos, we took turns visiting each other, we shared meals in Chicago and Detroit. Work and life took them to Seattle and we miss them dearly (but makes for a pretty incredible place to have an excuse to visit).
There's so much history here, so much love, so many stories to tell. Instead, I'll just leave you with the images to tell the tale of their love, and the picture-perfect PNW magic when I traveled to Seattle this past Spring to document them.
And a few bonus iPhone shots from the rest of Cali and I's PNW adventures surrounding their session (Seattle, Bainbridge Island, Vancouver, Squamish, Whistler, and everywhere along the way).
