This is Natalie and Jake. We made arrangements to do engagement pictures via email, because they currently live in Hanoi. But they came back for a short trip to visit family and friends and do some wedding arrangements, and we had the chance to do a session together.
In Vietnam, Natalie teaches second grade, and Jake teaches middle school science (so it makes perfect sense that, when coming across a small, shallow pond, he would want to get down on his hands and knees and look for small things). He is from Colorado, and she is from Washington, though Jake went to school in Washington and Natalie went to graduate school in Colorado. Of course, they wouldn’t meet until they were both teachers, in Norway.
I loved wandering around the park with them, enjoying the fresh air and the sunset and the sounds of the river. I’m already looking forward to June 2011 when I’ll be able to watch them get married. In the meantime, here are a few photographs from their engagement session.
