Sometimes, when I come across images like this, I remember that I need to put down the camera and experience what is happening in front of me with my own eyes.

Seattle WeddingBy now, if you have been following my blog for a while, you know that not only am I a Seattle native, but that I love my hometown! So this wedding was especially exciting for me because not only did I get to go back to my beloved West Coast, but I had the absolute honor of photographing Becky and Adam’s wedding on Bainbridge Island. For those who know me on a more personal level, you know that my family used to live on the island. So, imagine my surprise when I see where this wedding was set to take place.. right down the street from my parents former home! Needless to say I was quite excited! So to add to the anticipation (as if it could not get any better) I had Catherine Abegg, who is an amazing film photographer, second shooting with me. I was a bit over the moon that weekend! Enjoy the pictures!
The weather was a perfect, sunny 90 degree day with a cool breeze coming off the sound. Becky and Adam had literally planned this entire wedding themselves with some help from their friends and families. They made all the signs (wood and paper), lavender sugar cookies were made from a family recipe, the flowers were hand picked by Becky and her friends at the public market downtown Seattle and all the decorations were hand made by everyone involved with the wedding. It was a DIY wedding done tastefully and elegantly!
