Seattle Wedding Photography | Brianna+Jack | Edgewater Inn & Sculpture Park

Thursday, June 27th, 2013

As a wedding photographer, I love my job.  Because I get to be by the sides of truly awesome people on the happiest days of their lives.  Seeing people in love and how they interact with one another on a day they’re starting a new future together is truly a blessing.  I couldn’t ask for a better job and I am lucky enough to work with the best people.  Brianna+Jack are two of those people.  Their wedding day was so stress free and went on without any hitches.  It was probably one of the easiest weddings we’ve ever done.

You know that saying, you can often judge someone’s character by their friends?  No?  Did I remember that wrong?  Well, if that saying is somewhat true, then Brianna+Jack are great people.  I believe one of the reasons why their wedding day went so smoothly was because of their friends.  The wedding party never strayed to do their own thing.  They were present when they should for pictures and never left the bride or groom’s side when we needed them to be there.  Jack’s best man made one of the best speeches I’ve ever heard and it was pretty evident that he spent a lot of time on it.  Brianna+Jack were surrounded by all these people that loved them and it speaks volumes about how they are as people.  Chris and I were so happy we got a chance to capture their happy day.  Enjoy their wedding photos below!

Seattle Engagement Photography | Quynh+Paul | Seattle Waterfront

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013

Paul and I go WAY back.  We’ve known of one another since high school, but I really didn’t get to know him as a friend until college.  At that time, Paul was working at Washington Mutual as a loan agent and I also happened to bank there.  Working three jobs and going to school full time, I didn’t always have the time to properly manage my money.  So Paul would oftentimes check my balances for me, and if I was running low before a payday, he would put some money in there to help me cushion for another couple of days.  He’s one of those guys.  I never asked him to do this, but because he’s such a nice, selfless, and thoughtful guy, it’s just what he does.

And to this day, Paul’s still that same guy.  He hasn’t changed a bit.  I used to think if one day he finds a girl that’s deserving of his heart, that girl would be a pretty lucky gal.  And Quynh just happens to be his perfect other half.  It took them awhile to realize they were meant to be because Quynh also went to high school with us.  But later is better than never!  Because Paul and I have known each other for so long, we’ve seen one another date other people.  But I’ve never seen Paul so at ease and content as he is now.  Quynh is his compliment and I just can’t be happier for these two.  Not only are we photographing their wedding, but we’ll also be guests.  Those are the best weddings a photographer can attend because we can drink and shoot at the same time!  :)  I am only kidding…sort of…but until we bring you wedding photos of these two cuties, enjoy their engagement session sneak peek below.

Seattle Engagement Photography | Samantha+Nicky | SoDo+Washington Arboredum

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013

On a nice Saturday afternoon, we went out on a stroll through SoDo with Samantha+Nicky.  Leading up to this engagement shoot, we’ve only worked through and met with Samantha.  Nicky currently lives in Arizona as he’s helping us serve our country in the military.  Just for that, we should applaud Nicky for his dedication to our country!  We should also applaud these two for doing one of the hardest things in a relationship…maintaining a long distance relationship.  So we thought the song “Near or Far” by Carissa Rae would be suiting for their slideshow.  Hopefully after the wedding, Sam+Nicky can finally live in the same city again.

Since we haven’t met, we didn’t know what to expect from Nicky.  But we knew since Sam was such a sweet person, the person that she loves will probably be pretty cool as well.  And cool he was.  He was more than that…he was outright wonderful!  It didn’t take us long to realize Sam+Nicky are a perfect match for one another.  They are both the kind of people you meet and immediately feel comfortable to be with.  There’s no awkward small talk with these two.  They’re genuinely nice people who listens to what you have to say and laughs at your corny jokes not just to be nice but truly because they find you funny.

Sam+Nicky’s marrying this September on Whidbey Island at the gorgeous Fireseed Catering.  It is truly a fabulous location and I just can’t wait for their wedding day.  September is one of the most gorgeous months in Seattle and how fitting because Sam+Nicky are a gorgeous couple.  Just take a look and judge for yourselves!  Enjoy their engagement sneakpeek below!
