When I first moved to Seattle almost four years ago, Hitomi and her family were one of my first clients. When we did that shoot Paul was but a little toddler, now he’s off to school! That’s not all that’s changed, he now has an adorable little sister. Like all older siblings, Paul’s happiness at having a younger sibling ebbs and flows but thankfully on this day he was happy to have someone to play in the leaves with on a beautiful crisp fall day.
Where to even start with Rachel & Kelsey’s wedding? Well I knew after their engagement session (see it here) that these two were going to be a hoot and they didn’t disappoint!
Bre & Elliott chose to do their engagement photos at a Seattle Park (Golden Gardens) and they continued that tradition into their wedding by doing their first look at a Seattle Park also. I had never been to Sunset Park but I can see why they were attracted to it. Offering stunning views out across the Puget Sounds to the rolling Olympic Mountains it was quite the backdrop, and backdrop it was because Bre & Elliott only had eyes for each other once they’d seen each other.
When I shot Ann & Eric’s engagement photos back in March, I knew they were going to host a fun wedding, and I was right. On a beautiful summer day, a beautiful summer Friday The 13th no less, the two tied the knot at Willows Lodge over in Woodinville, just East of Seattle.
Discovery Park is one of the most popular parks in Seattle for photography, that's why I have always avoided it. Tales of cars being towed, broken into, no spaces, made it all very confusing on the best way to enjoy this park. Thankfully Evan & Kelsey knew the deets and we parked at the South Lot and went EARLY.
For those not in the know, Columbia Tower is Seattle's tallest building. 75 stories tall it towers over the surrounding buildings and offers a 360 degree view of Seattle from an unparalleled viewpoint. The top two floors are reserved for the Columbia Tower club which Patrick & Marc used as the venue for their beautiful day.
With all the ugliness surrounding the Supreme Court's decision in the cake baker case I decided I wanted to do something positive to counter it. So I cooked up a plan with some friends and enlisted the magic baking hands of South Fork Cake Co who made the most amazing cake I think I've ever seen. My good friends Alex & Chad then proceeded to smash it into each others faces in the most adorable way.
