Alexandra & Traesti-Whidbey Island Engagement Session
Whidbey Island is a hidden gem of Washington state
Once in a blue moon you meet a couple who are so quirky and fun that it brings out your own silliness. Alexandra & Traesti is such a couple. With her yellow leggings and his amazing curly hair and dance moves, it was beyond fun and quirky AF! Aside from the quirks, they are two parts of a three part band called The Living Arrows. You can even listen to some of their music on Spotify here. My favorite is the song Rowan.
I was so excited when they chose me to document their love story. I knew their quirky personalities and utterly perfect hipster style would make for some amazing photos as well as plenty of laughs. We met up for their engagement session at one of my favorite spots off the Peninsula, Whidbey Island. There is just something so quant and comforting about the island. We chose to start at Fort Casey State Park at the bunkers. It has such an amazing view of Port Townsend in the background. I personally love the old, worn cement steps and rooms. So much history built into every inch. To see more sessions with bunkers, go here or more about Whidbey Island, go here!
After we had plenty of jumping and dancing around at the bunkers, we headed north to Deception Pass. WAs tempting to get some photos at the stunning bridge there, but alas, we kept on going and went to Rosario Beach for some sunset photos up on the cliffs. What I love most about my couples is that they aren’t afraid to be themselves, and we all love to laugh together. Alex and Traesti were all about those dreamy golden tones, jumping around and being super sweet. It was crazy that the session went by so fast! But we are more than excited by what we got.
I can’t wait until October for their wedding at NatureBridge! Stay tuned for those amazing wedding photos!
