Golden Gardens Beach in Seattle – Engagement Session Photos

If you are looking for one of the best spots in Seattle for engagement photos, this is the place. Golden Gardens Beach is on the North end of Seattle in the Ballard community. Caity + Jeff met me there at Sunset for a fun and relaxed photoshoot. I love engagement sessions and even more so when the couple has decided to ask me to photograph their wedding. It is such a great way to get to know the couple ahead of the actual wedding day. We have the opportunity to get a feel for each other’s energy. They learn how I interact with my couples and I learn how they interact as a couple.

Golden Gardens is SO GORGEOUS at sunset. It has spots overlooking water as well as some woodsy-looking areas. My favorite is the tall grass, making it look as if we are in an abandoned wheat field. I HIGHLY suggest wearing bug spray.. I may have gotten a nice little bug bite on my underarm. My poor couple had to watch me flail around for a minute. Not my finest hour but we laughed it off after. Be aware that a lot of people like to hang out here. You can definitely find pockets without others around and the photos will not disappoint. Honestly the Best Spot In Seattle For Engagement Photos that I’ve shot!
