A Morning in the Quad

What is the quad you might ask? This is the center of the University of Washington campus where every spring the cherry blossoms bloom and it becomes this floral pinkish wonderland…..and anightmare. It’s become an attraction when spring roles around. You can bet there’s tons of people that flock to the quad to the coveted quad picture.

I’m no exception. (I’m such a poser.)

I’ve have actually never seen the cherry blossoms and of course I wanted my quad photo. So who was I going to drag with me at 7am in the morning but of course my wonderful boyfriend. Rachel Lucus, the talented photographer who took all these shots woke up early to capture these wonderful photos of us.

If you’re ever in the area, Rachel is amazing at taking couple photos and such a sweetheart! Also check out the University of Washington campus if you like old school architecture.
