It’s extremely fun to photograph a wedding. There’s always someone crying, someone laughing, and some kid wandering around stealing flowers and knocking over chairs. It’s pure craziness! It’s sometimes so crazy that I don’t get a chance to get to know the bride and groom. Sure, we exchange emails before the wedding and meet in person to go over the important details, but there’s never time to just walk around and talk! Where are you from? Where did you meet? How did he propose? These are all important things to know and really help me focus on the the right stuff when we meet on the wedding day.
This is why I was super excited when Jenna and Andrew told me they were available for an engagement shoot. What a great opportunity to get to know you two! Despite the 60% chance of rain, we met early afternoon at Discovery Park in Seattle and were rewarded with the best weather of the week.
Thank you Jenna and Andrew for following me through mud, sand, and grass. You didn’t know you signed up for a hike. Thank you for all the smiles. Thank you for humoring me in my misguided attempts to pose you. You two are so obviously in love and it naturally shows. I’m so excited for your wedding and can’t wait to make more photos!
I really liked the low sun and Jenna and Andrew made it easy for me to play with the light. They’re quite comfortable in front of the camera.
