Ever meet a couple and they just GO together so well and really compliment each other? This was the case for Brent & Mariko. As they rode around the brick roads of Pioneer Square on Brent’s bike together, looking cool as hell, I couldn't help but feel thankful to be in that moment. We collaboratively created some gorgeous images, and it was such an honor.

Any day I can capture some goofy, loving, spontaneous humans is a good day in my book. As Brent and Mariko prepared for their upcoming college graduations together, they also prepared for something even bigger – moving in together and heading to a new state (maybe even getting a dog too)! These now Portlandian’s shifted my focus from all of the smelly, strange and not so beautiful things we are witness to in the city streets, to such happy thoughts. As we waited patiently for huge groups of tourists to pass by between their underground tour stops, time froze for just a minute when I captured these two on the sidewalk, back to back on Brent's bike. They enjoyed the beauty of the city, while I enjoyed capturing that awe-inspired look.

To make this shoot even cooler, one of my favorite Seattle shops, Wayward, outfitted them with the most functional, high quality and just all-around hip as it gets gear.

Huge thanks to Wayward for collaborating with me and making this couple+product photography session so unforgettable.

This shoot was filled with laughter, cool vibes, outfit swaps, rad sunnies, alleyways, and one beautiful bike. Cheers to Brent and Mariko!!
