Justine & Alex dated for 9 years before they got engaged. They met in college in the Philippines when they both took up nursing in different schools. Alex reached out to Justine to participate in a research paper, and the rest was history! Their relationship is one of true commitment and resilience. During their courtship, Justine accepted a position in London, which meant the two would be in a very long distance relationship for at least three years. They made the most of it though, meeting in various countries for "dates" as often as they could. They traveled to Asia, U.K. and all over Europe during that time. Not long after, Alex made his way to the U.S. and a year later, Justine joined him. Now they both work as registered nurses, together!  After getting engaged, they planned a beautiful wedding with a full celebration on the beach back in the Philippines, only to have Covid turn the world upside down just a few short months before their wedding date and force them to cancel the event. However, with a love story like theirs, they weren't about to let upended plans rob them of a beautiful married life together. The two tied the knot with an intimate ceremony in the PNW, and are now expecting a little boy! But before all of this they celebrated their union with a beautiful sunlit engagement session with Seattle wedding photographer JANET LIN.

A huge thank you to Seattle wedding photographer JANET LIN for sharing this beautiful engagement shoot with us. Janet is a fine-art wedding photographer based in Seattle, Washington and serving destinations worldwide. She grew up in the dark room of her father's photography studio, watching people's memories come to life in images through a seemingly magical process. With a passion for loving people, learning their stories, and documenting human connection, the decision to pursue photography was an easy one. Janet's goal is to capture the true essence and spirit of a moment, creating timeless wedding images that will serve as cherished artefacts of your marriage. On a wedding day she strives to balance a quiet documentary approach with an artistic and editorial perspective. You can see more of her work in her portfolio here.
