We haven’t done ours yet, but we are considering getting ours done at Point Defiance. There are a ton of options in that area.

Hi there – maybe Discovery Park?

We did our engagement shoot at Pike Place and Post Alley, and then walked around to different places around the market. If your photographer has a good eye, then you will be able to get every picture you want in that area- we did! If you want, I can post some of our pictures when I get home tonight 🙂

Volunteer Park is pretty fun.  There’s lots of pretty gardens and lawns, as well as the Asian Art Museum, which has some pretty hardscape/architectural elements.  On clear-ish days you can see the Seattle skyline, sneedle included 🙂

I was also going to suggest Volunteer Park–the park itself is beautiful, there are views of the needle, cool sculptures, plus it’s near Capitol Hill so if you did want to do two locations you could do a more urban shoot there.

Also, the Olympic Sculpture Park could be cool. Lots of water views and lots of fun sculptures.

We got some gorgeous shots outside of EMP- those colored walls make for an outstanding backdrop.  We also wandered around the amusement park (even though it was October and completely deserted) which made for some really beautiful, fun colors.

You could try going earlier in the day or later in the afternoon; I know literally nothing about photography and lighting but I know my photog typically schedules her engagement shoots so that they all start in the afternoon. 

One of the bees (Miss Potato Chips maybe?) did her engagement pics at an amusement park on different rides and they were SO cute.  I think your photog could blur the people in the background so that the focus is on you and you won’t notice them so much.

We took our Save the Date photos in the Volunteer Park Conservatory and they’re super fun.  Lots of light and fun plants to play with.  I also think the Sculpture Park could be awesome.

I have only been to Seattle once, but I remember visiting a park – I think it was called gasworks park.  It was a pretty cool location and I actually saw some people taking engagement photos there.  Very industrial looking!

I was just at the Olympic Sculpture Park on the waterfront on Sunday and was thinking it would be amazing for pics.  Also, if you did Kerry Park up on Highland drive, there are several cool hidden stairways all over Queen Anne hill that would make really cool pics.  There’s even a stairway right next to Kerry Park going down the hill.  Also, the Ballard Lochs would be really cool and it has a good mix of park setting and industrial, if you wait a couple more months there will be tons of flowers blooming.  Also, if you cross the fish ladder to the other side, I think you could get some really cool pics on those grassy terraced hill areas.  There’s also some cool sculptures on the Magnolia side of the lochs.
