It was a beautiful winter day for Chi and Saurav engagement session. The light was filtered through the trees and everything had so much color. Saurav is so funny and had us laughing for so much of the session.
We chatted about their upcoming wedding in India and the planning of their home reception to share with family and friends when they returned.
This is a wedding near and dear to my heart. A little over a month after Marla and Scotts 38th Wedding Anniversary with the help of friends and family and a lot of amazing donations from vendors these two love birds shared their story and love with a beautiful renewal. Marriage is not always easy but every great adventure is always a bit of a ruff climb.
Marla and Scott have a touching story that was so beautiful to be able to be apart of, Scott has been fighting several forms of cancer, recently cancer has moved into his brain and Scott has developed some memory issues. This story started while watching an episode of This is Us. Where there was a proposal in the story and Scott had a memory that he never truly proposed to Marla and wanted to do it right in his words.
So fast forward to today with the help of a wonderful friend Nicole who started putting up feelers to help these two renew their forever romance and renew the vows and even add to them.
Through church and friends, they were offered a beautiful backyard of a couple that attends their church. When Nicole reached out to me on Facebook there was still a few things they were in need of, with he amazing donation and loans from Pollen In love (Flowers) Mic Owner of Hidden Meadows (Chairs) and Tia from Winsome Hill Bed & Breakfast (Linens)
With everything in place Marla and Scott were the guests of honor to share a day that was not about everything going on in their lives no sickness, just the love they share for each and a day to celebrate it with family and close friends.
I enjoy all the weddings I photograph. But sometimes there are couples like Paige and Will. They are two of the happiest and sweetest people I have ever spent the day with. Photographing their wedding day was just a joy. Here are some photos of their beautiful day.
Nicole and Leon’s engagement session was a great one once we made it through the multiple re-schedules. Everytime we thought we found the perfect evening for a sunrise rain would appear in the forcast. We got lucky on this beautful day at Kayak Point park, Leon and Nicole salsa danced while the gorgeous light set a beautiful glow all around them. We talked about the elopement they wear planning in the fall at alki beach and had lots of laughs while Nicole tried not to step on Leons toes.
We started the journey with Geethu and Kiran the night before their wedding with a cocktail party at one of their dear friends for a pre-party that I may mention went well into the early morning. The next morning we started with some traditions and some priming for a amazing day of family and friends and saying I do with a rooftop Hindu fusion ceremony. The day was filled with choreographd couple dances and outfit changes and the glow of the great wheel silhouette in the night sky as a memory of a great day where Geeki's got married.
We got luck with a beautiful day at Scenic Beach State Park documeting Paige and Will's engagement photo. I feel in love with the rich color of the trees and the light beeze that moved along the beach. We loved the idea of keeping with the simple theme of small and simple for their Intimate Port Gamble Pavilion wedding in July.
I knew right away when meeting Samantha that I wanted to be Christopher and her wedding photographer. Samantha described all of her DIY wedding details which each piece sounded more perfect than the last.
Brides dress and the veil was all made by her incredibly talented mother and fit perfectly making such a special Item to wear for your wedding day.
Spring forward to the wedding date where friends and family worked to make a special day for two of their favorite people to have the day of their dreams.
