Seattle Wedding: Pamela and Sean

I love my job.  Really love my job.  I meet the greatest people.  Often, my clients become my friends, and sometimes, my friends get to be my clients.  Pamela and Sean are two of those friends.

I was incredibly honored to photograph their wedding day.  I adore them both, and to be involved in such a special day was humbling, emotional, exciting, and blissfully fun- all at the same time.

We started the day at their home where Pamela and her “maids” were getting ready.  Michael Bride provided the flawless makeup for the gang.  Love his work and his wit.  🙂  We headed to Discovery Park for some perfect light and gorgeous backdrops.  I’m thrilled that the pictures of their first sight came out, because I could barely see through the tears welling up in my eyes!  They were both radiant- total love glow going on!  (Always one of my favorite parts of the day).  They chose Lake Union Cafe for their ceremony and reception- awesome venue!  The tables surrounded the dance floor, creating an intimate environment where everyone could be involved in the festivities.  And the swanky modern decor set the perfect vibe for the party.

Some of my favorite things…

Check out the bridesmaids’ dresses.  L.O.V.E.

It’s always a party when the stunner shades make an appearance on the dance floor.

We made a quick stop for pictures with their fur baby- a sweet dog named Sunday.

Totally scored on the weather… after days of rain and muck, we had a perfectly crisp fall day.

Pam is cute to boot.

Their ‘wishing tree’, where guests good hang little notes for the newlyweds.

The dance floor was crackalackin’.  You know I love a good dance off.

I can’t forget the way they looked at each other.  I’ve never seen either of them so giddy.

Pammy and Sean- I love you both.  Congratulations, and thank you for including me.  MUAH!

Vashon Island Washington Wedding: Lara and Coley

Whew!  The past 6 months have been a whirlwind!  I am so excited about all the amazing weddings and portrait sessions of 2009, but in all the craziness, there are soooo many images still waiting to be blogged.  To start picking away at the backlog, I’d like to share Lara and Coley’s beautiful Vashon Island wedding.  Every time I step off the ferry on Vashon, it seems that the clock moves a little slower, I breathe a little deeper, and I get to soak in all the beauty.  Love it.

Some of my favorite things:

Lara and Coley threw their rain boots on to walk along the water.  You guys are so cute.

The reception venue- I heart Camp Burton

Lara is Super Bride: She made her own wedding cake, along with half the dinner menu…and everything was insanely delicious!!

Coley’s Dad married them- love that.

Coley’s sisters sang a beautiful song during the ceremony.  I teared up during the rehearsal… it was that sweet.

How Lara and Coley incorporated so much of themselves into their day- the wedding and reception just felt like them.

The speeches detailing all of Coley’s extreme sports action…  mad me laugh (and cringe).  🙂

Lara and Coley- were so sweet to me, and perfect for each other.

It was such an honor- thanks for inviting me to be a part of your day!

Seattle Baby Photographer: Fall Tutus

I’m behind on my email, late with my blogging, and deprived of sleep… BUT I have had some amazing holiday session this month, almost have my new office space put together, I’ve been doing a TON of Christmas cards, and I’ve got some awesome new products lined up for 2010!  Love it.

… and check out this doll from our Golden Gardens session- some serious cuteness going on.  -1-6-9-7
