A day with these extremely stylish people was a good one. Can’t wait for their wedding in June.
So many good laughs with these guys. Both outgoing, gracious, and just up for a good time…and perfect for each other. Given that these two enjoy a good day out on the water, it only seemed natural we hop on a sailboat out in Elliot Bay. It ended up being a surprisingly sunny & gorgeous October day this last Fall. A few analogies of “navigating the seas of life together” later we were having an awesome time. Congrats to these two and their upcoming nuptials.
One of my fav ladies, Tonhya, took off to New York earlier this year and we took some time playing around in my new studio before she left. And yes, she’s just as beautiful inside as out — no lie. I’m also gearing up and prepping for an all day Valentines Day Boudoir shoot here with some of my 2015 clients and I can’t wait. The ladies are in for a treat. BAM BAM. Happy Monday guys.
It’s kind of funny that in this industry you can still be surprised. With the overload of wedding blogs, information, inspiration, combined with the number of times I’ve done this, I didn’t think there would be much left to leave me saying “now THAT was awesome.” Enter Megan & Rick. For some reason, after our first meeting, I thought I knew what I was in for. They were sweet, we talked here and there about where the wedding would take place… but little did I know it would present an amazing venue, an even more wonderful crowd, a loving family, and 2 really, really cool clients. This was a fun one. Cheers to these two and thanks for having me along!
And thank you to Amber Knecht for shooting alongside me!
A little history is involved with this wedding. On both sides. Dave is the other half of which introduced me to Tyler way back when. To him, I’m forever grateful and him & Mallory have become such great friends of ours. You may have also recalled him and Mallory’s engagement session last December in an old warehouse (which has since burned down — the saddest story and it still breaks my heart knowing that treasure is gone). Well, go up the street 5 minutes, and you’re here. A beautiful historic property that has also been in Mallory’s family for over 50 years. Her mother grew up here and got married here 30 years prior. Things come full circle and I love it. Couldn’t have been happier to spend this day with friends and party a bit myself. Also. Hands down best food I’ve eaten at a wedding, their caterer was phenomenal.
Thank you to Julia Manchik for killing it second shooting for me. Some of the images below are hers. Also a huge shout out and thank you to Seattle Bride Magazine for featuring this bad boy. So fun to see it in print — and all the hard work is worthy of many eyes.
