Jesse and Miriam wanted to plan a super special engagement session, one that was personal to them and their relationship. They had fond memories spending time with their families on Bainbridge island back when they had just started dating. So we hopped on a ferry and headed out for a sunset bainbridge island engagement.
Fun fact: I actually met Jesse + Miriam while I was hiking at Colchuck Lake in Leavenworth. From a distance I saw Jesse get down on one knee. He was proposing! I cheered in the distance and then it dawned on me that I had my camera. So I quickly took out my camera and starting taking photos. I ran over to them and asked if I could take a few more and exchange information.
Taking the ferry from Seattle to Bainbridge Island is a popular and scenic way to travel between these two locations. It’s also a perfect opportunity to take a few unique photos on the ferry. If you catch the ferry at the right time, it can really make for some incredible photos at sunset. Keep scrolling to see what I mean 😉
Jesse and Miriam wanted to find the perfect beach for their engagement photos and Fay Bainbridge park ended up being an incredible spot for golden hour. It was easy to access with tons of parking and amazing views. One thing to keep in mind is that this park gets very busy in the summertime. We were lucky enough to tuck away and find a private spot on the beach!
After spending a good amount of time on Fay park, we headed back to the Bainbridge ferry terminal and somehow managed to hop on right at sunset. With the olympics peaking in the background and the sun making its way behind, the deep orange golden light filled the sky. We could not get over this sunset, it was so beautiful! I will forever suggest a sunset session on the ferry after this wonderful evening with Jesse + Miriam!
