julie & rob// fremont engagement

2017-05-26_0001.jpgRob and Julie crossed paths at a wedding many moons ago, and boy had his dang heart set on her. Julie is the kind of girl who’s so pretty you kind of don’t want to look straight at her because it makes you feel a little shy, but her personality is the equivalent of a shooken-up bottle of champagne: not an ounce of pretense or anything that isn’t just joyful love for the world. So duh, Rob was in lurrrrve from Minute One, while Julie was out doing other things and gallivanting and being gorgeous and kind. But he had his eye on the prize.

And finally, years later, she flew up to Seattle for their first official date: straight from SeaTac to drinks at Westward, a shadowy place to start a new love story overlooking the shores of Lake Union.

It’s only normal that we’d start their engagement shoot at the very spot where they first began, but adding an escape route to a roped-off construction zone and quiet moments under the Fremont Bridge are a bit more their speed. It’s amazing how great people can change your whole energy— these two are pure goodness to the core. Julie and Rob, we kind of feel love-at-first-sight-esque about you guys too, hope that’s okay.

Ugh. Instagram captions. What the hell?

I've spent countless moments of my life staring at a blank instagram caption box. Try something - delete it. Put a quote in there - delete it. But I had a secret weapon... I'd just hand the phone to my wife. She's is a witty and wise firestorm of a woman and I love her for it. Apparently, so does instagram. Her irreverent, meandering, and poignant-as-hell captions have created a sense of community in our lives so that everywhere we travel, there’s usually someone willing to show us around (not to mention insta alone has literally put thousands of dollars in our bank account). So I made her sit down and explain what goes through her curly little head whenever her thumbs click away at her phone keyboard. Put your email below for her free guide on how to write insta captions that people actually care about and make the whole process (dare we say it) fun.. -Tim
