Seattle Engagement Photography | Courtney+Zac | Pike Place Market and Washington Arboretum

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

Love is moving across the country for someone because you can’t live without them.  Courtney+Zac are both from the East coast and when Zac was offered a job here in Rain City, Courtney followed after graduating from school.  Now that’s what I call love!  They wanted to take engagement photos in Seattle before their wedding next year back home across the country and although we will not be their wedding photographers, we’re so glad we got to meet them and got to spend the morning with them around beautiful Seattle.  They are shy, funny, daring, laughable, and adorable all at once.  Just check them out and see for yourselves!

Seattle Wedding Photography | Sam+Nicky | Fireseed Catering, Whidbey Island

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

Fireseed Catering is the hidden treasure we discovered thanks to Sam+Nicky.  It was such a beautiful September day and the location was just beautiful.  Everything about the venue fit Sam+Nicky and we are so glad they gave us the opportunity to document their special day.  Sam wanted to make this day as personal as possible.  She’s the ultimate DIY bride…risking being eaten half alive by mosquitos so she can go into the woods with her father to chop down branches for her center pieces.  It’s a story Sam told me over a cup of coffee weeks before the big day for which I almost snorted liquid through my nose.

When it comes to a great couple, Sam+Nicky truly defines it.  I can not imagine how hard it would be to maintain a long distance relationship for the ENTIRE duration of that relationship.  But these two love birds did it.  For as long as these two’s been together, they’ve never really lived in the same city.  In fact, immediately after their wedding, Nicky had to fly out the next day back to serving our country in the National Guard.  As we captured their wedding day, our hearts really went out to them.  Because Nicky is such a great guy and Sam is the most beautiful and gentle person inside and out.  They were just the perfect match for one another.  We’re happy to share that Nicky will be moving back this winter to finally begin his life together with Sam.  But in the meantime, we hope these photos help them relive their day and bring them a little bit closer from the miles that separate them for now.

Seattle Wedding Photography | Nichole+Tim | St. Ignatius Chapel and Pioneer Square

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

When the first words out of the groom’s mouth during his wedding day is, “TWO-CHAINSSSS!!!” you know it was going to be a good day.  As photographers, on a wedding day we spend about twelve hours on our feet and it can sure be tiring.  But being with Nichole+Tim, they made us forget about our aching feet.  Nichole+Tim just wanted to have fun on their wedding day…and they weren’t kidding.  When we saw that each of the banquet tables at their reception housed two Costco sized bottles of liquor, we knew this party was going down!  Oh…and did we mention the Costco sized wine buffet off to the side in case people ran out of alcohol at their tables?

Weddings are supposed to be fun and Nichole+Tim proved this to be the case.  I’ve known Nichole for years!  In fact, Chris and Nichole worked together when he purchased my engagement ring and Nichole actually remembered the day he took a long lunch to get it.  So it was even more special for us to photograph their special day for them.  We’ve never had such a crazy time with them and their wedding party, walking around Pioneer Square yelling at the top of our lungs.  Just check them out!
