Discovery Park Engagement // Jeanae and Giovanni - bethanykiddphotography.com

Jeanae and Giovanni’s Discovery Park engagement shoot took place on the coldest day of record in Washington. Okay…. Am I being dramatic? Probably. Always. But, was it also freezing? YES! I think we checked our weather app a couple times during our time together and the temperature never went above 39 degrees!

Discovery Park

We spent hours exploring downtown Seattle near Discovery Park for their engagement shoot. First, we started at the Ballard Locks before driving over to Discovery Park for further explorations. This area was new to all three of us, and we had so much fun exploring. I was pleasantly surprised to find such a huge park in downtown Seattle. Discovery Park is MASSIVE. It has multiple parking lots, wooded trails, historical buildings, dense forests, and sandy beaches. I’m scared to admit this to you, but Seattle has never been one of my favorite cities. Whenever we visit, it’s busy and crowded and I much prefer to spend hours and time away from the hustle of city life. But, after this Discovery Park engagement shoot, Seattle is seriously growing on me!

Jeanae and Giovanni

Jeanae and Giovanni are near and dear to my heart. They are truly my kindred spirits. They have two beautiful little girls and their family is absolutely gorgeous. We are already planning a family photo session back at Discovery Park this summer and I can’t wait! Jeanae and Giovanni have such a beautiful depth to their relationship. They genuinely delight in one another, and it was so encouraging to see them play off one another during our time together. I don’t know what hurt more by the end of our time together, our stomachs from laughing so much or the frost bite on our hands. This engagement shoot was just a really laid back, fun time together. Jeanae and Giovanni are one of my couples affected by COVID but we’ve got a great back up plan in place and I can’t wait to be by their side throughout their wedding day!
