When Dave and I first started talking about getting engaged and married and our time line, etc, I told him that I was extremely flexible and low maintenance about the planning process except for one thing...we absolutely had to have my friend and professional photographer Kristen Parker photograph our wedding and engagement photos.
I have known Kristen for around 3 years now, and was friends with her back when she just started getting into photography. We even have a few fun modeling session photos from when we ran around So-Do together so she could get some more experience and I could get some awesome free photos of myself. Since then she has only become more and more talented and more and more recognized as a extremely talented professional photographer. Of course I have been following her website iamkristenmarie.com for ages and have always been 100% in love with all of her work so I knew I had to have her photograph our wedding and engagement.
I showed Dave Kristen's photos and he was quickly convinced that she was the photographer for us. Even though we were planning our wedding on a rather tight schedule, because we were having a winter wedding Kristen was free for our wedding date! Hooray! We decided to go out to Discovery Park in Seattle for the engagement session which was so much fun. Dave was a little worried about being awkward in front of the camera at first, but we both were immediately made so comfortable by Kristen that we ended up having an absolute blast.
