Real Couples // A Seattle Surprise Engagement: Taymah + Brittany

Taymah and Brittany traveled to Seattle from Chicago for a summer getaway and wanted some portraits done together in front of the Seattle skyline. I took them to one of the best spots to get romantic views of Seattle, Gas Works Park. Little did Brittany know, though, that Taymah had something else extra special in mind. She snuck a diamond ring in their bag and gave me the signal when she was ready to drop to one knee and propose to Brittany right there in front of the perfect Seattle backdrop. I had Brittany facing the other way, and when she turned back around to see Taymah holding out a ring she could not believe her eyes. Their smiles for the rest of the evening say it all. Their love and joy with one another easily spreads to everyone around them, and the glow in their photos does not just come from the sun.

Delia of DBK Photography

I'm Delia of DBK Photography, and I tell stories. I've been telling stories since I created my first hardcover book in the second grade, and today, with my camera, I tell your stories. Stories of love and life and family. Stories of laughter and inside jokes — those are my favorite. I think I have the greatest job in the world, because I have the honor of witnessing and capturing the stories of the most important moments in people's lives. When I'm not behind the camera, you can find me watching Netflix with my husband, snuggling my puppy, reading the latest Liane Moriarity novel, or attempting to write a novel of my own.
