UW Engagement Photos: Ashka+Siavash
We had the pleasure of meeting up with Ashka+Siavash about a week and a half ago in Seattle, and when they told us that they wanted to take engagement photos at the University of Washington where they met and fell in love we knew it was going to be special! As we strolled the paths of the campus that morning, they told us their love story…how they had noticed each other right away when they first ended up in a class together, but how they had always chosen seats on opposite sides of the room because they were too shy to talk to each other. Siavash could feel Ashka watching him from the other side of the room, but could never get up the nerve to speak to her, and over time they exchanged a few shy smiles and eventually ended up sitting side by side at the end of the year – so sweet!! We decided to check out their old classroom during the shoot, and were absolutely thrilled when we walked into that room where their love story first began and found it unlocked and empty! It was so special to take a few shots of them in that classroom where it all began – as well as a few locations around campus where they spent their days together while they were dating.
Ashka+Siavash, thank you SO much for the lovely morning that completely felt like a fun double date. Thanks for being so great in front of our cameras, for being up for our crazy ideas, and for the wonderful brunch that followed our shoot. We love you guys and can’t wait for your wedding in just a couple of months!!! Love, R+A
