If you were to ask any Seattleite about their pick for the best view of the iconic city skyline, chances are good that they’d recommend Kerry Park. Located on the south slope of Queen Anne Hill, Kerry Park offers breathtaking views of the Space Needle that you’d typically only see on a postcard.
But just on the other side of town is another spot that doesn't get nearly the credit it deserves: the Jose Rizal Bridge, which provides a stunning view of the city skyline from a completely different perspective. The unique angle from the Beacon Hill neighborhood offers a more panoramic view with the inclusion of T-Mobile Park and Lumen Field.
When I told Tessa and Rose about this spot they were thrilled to continue their engagement session there, and as you can see from the photo, the nighttime scene did not disappoint.
Renowned real estate company, Redfin, recently reached out to me asking for my opinion as a Seattle photographer on a worthwhile but lesser-known view of the city that would make for an excellent bucket-list destination. As someone who has lived in Seattle for more than a decade and has photographed practically every corner of the city, this beautiful scenic bridge immediately came to mind.
