Seattle Wedding Photography: Amy+Erik

I’ve never really appreciated the saying, “WOW, what a small world” until I met Amy+Erik.  Amy is a carefree bride that doesn’t sweat the small stuff.  Chris and I met her by way of her sister, Lauren, who wanted to purchase wedding photography for Amy as a wedding present (what a great sister, eh??).  So throughout the wedding planning process, we actually did not have a chance to meet Amy+Erik because we were mainly working through Lauren.  However, when we did finally meet, it didn’t take me long to recognize Erik.  It turns out, Erik and I attended part of college together more than…let’s say for the sake of keeping my age under wraps…ten years ago!  Seattle (and the world) is indeed small.

Not having to had a chance to get to know Amy more prior to her wedding, I didn’t know what to expect.  But immediately, she made me feel at ease.  As soon as Chris and I showed up on site, she asked us if we wanted to eat.  Now that’s my kind of girl!  Her ability to make people feel at ease infront of her without even really knowing her made me realize why Erik fell deeply in love with her at the speed of cats going after catnip!

Amy+Erik tied the knot in an intimate house with their closest family members.  I love weddings like this.  If I had to redo my wedding again, this would be how I would have it.  Amy+Erik pledged their love to each other infront of about 15 members of their immediate families and it’s weddings like these that really remind us why we love our jobs.  We had so much fun with the couple and can’t wait to meet with them again when we deliver their photos.  Yes, we miss them already…but for now, enjoy these!

Photographers always search for "that" look. You know what look I'm talking about? The twinkle in the eye and there it was right in Amy! Love!

First looks make me swoon!

The nicest store own in downtown Issaquah allowed us to go into her store and use the colorful hand glass work as the backdrop.
