March 21st, 2018:
A couple weeks ago, after seeing that the cherry blossoms would be in bloom at University of Washington I got super excited and reached out to Dmitriy and Nadiya to see if we could do their session at the campus. Unfortunately the Seattle Times published a weekend to-do list the day before the shoot with the number one event for the weekend being “See Cherry Blossoms” and the entire city decided to show up. Around the trees were completely packed and nearly unusable as a shoot location.
While it was far too crowded to shoot much around the cherry trees, the rest of the campus was in full bloom (and nearly empty), the weather was perfect, and Dmitriy + Nadiya showed up ready to have fun. All in all, it turned out to be a damn perfect shoot, even with the last minute plan changes.
Congrats Dmitriy + Nadiya! I can’t wait to be with you at your wedding in Hawaii this summer!
