We sat down with Don and Mariya to discuss their upcoming wedding and pick locations for their engagement shoot. We found out that they were avid moviegoers, making a movie theater the perfect place to start out. The Blue Mouse Theatre was kind enough to allow us to come in before their Saturday matinee. This icon of the Proctor district in Tacoma held childhood memories for them and it’s also one of our favorite places to catch a movie.
We were ecstatic to shoot some pictures of Hilltop Kitchen’s signature Negronis for Negroni Week. If you haven’t heard, Negroni Week celebrates the classic drink and is sponsored jointly by Imbibe Magazine and Campari. A portion of proceeds from sales of Negronis during the week are donated to a charity chosen by the host venue. Hilltop Kitchen chose to donate to the Emergency Food Network.
