Blanca & Tom's Engagement | Howard Amon Park | Richland, WA

Now this couple has no problems smiling. They are truly giddy with each other. And we love that they enjoy goofing around (it makes for great photos!). We took great advantage of the saturated fall colors, which suited them well: he played the guitar to her on a bench, and the autumn colors couldn't have complemented them better.

We can't wait for their 2014 wedding!

Colleen & Ivan | Engagement Photos | Secret Vineyard and Train | Richland, WA

We're excited to be shooting this cute couple's wedding along the Columbia river next year! We made time for an engagement shoot with them at a secret winery in Benton City, then raced to an old train and a cornfield in Richland to take advantage of sunset.

Lizeth & Ricardo | Richland Engagement | Howard Amon Park

It may not look like it, but this was a very cold day in November! We'd just some snow the day before, so parts of tri-cities still had snow on the ground. But there was still plenty of  fall color — this was perfect since it allowed for several different looks to their engagement photos.  Since it was so cold, we picked up some hot chocolate for Lizeth and Ricardo to help keep them warm.  We started at Howard Amon park where it still had awesome fall colors and leaves on the ground. Lizeth and Ricardo were great sports as they posed for photos while freezing! We then visited the WSU campus in Richland since it had the most snow.  Finally, we made use of the Christmas lights at the Parkway in Richland since it was dusk. It was definitely a fun photo shoot and we are glad the Lizeth and Ricardo are such a fun couple to work with.

Ruth & Chris | Benton City Engagement | Vineyards

We took Ruth and Chris to a secret winery in Benton City.  It was a really cold day, so we were glad that everyone dressed warm!  The vineyard offered some great looks for autumn.  Taking photos amid the elaborate wineries and the vineyards definitely shows off the best of the tri-cities.  We had great time and they looked looked great together.  We very excited to being doing their wedding next summer at Terra Blanca!
