I first met Erin and Alex when I shot some Christmas photo for Erin’s family a few years back. The family was all together for the holidays, so it was a perfect time to get everyone together. The two of them were not yet engaged at the time, but it was clear that it would not be too long. When they got in touch to let me know they were engaged, I was ecstatic. Their wedding was going to be in Seattle (a city both Shannon and I love), and we knew we had to make it work. Shannon was already committed that day, so it would mean me traveling and shooting without her. But, we knew I had to go. Our favorite thing about weddings is seeing the closeness between family, and I could just tell that this would be a day that held so much of that. It was a perfect match.
There is always the concern about the weather in the PNW, but it could not have been a more beautiful day. We started out with the girls getting ready at the Washington Atheltic Club. The wedding was at the beautiful St. James Cathedral in Seattle, and it was a truly spectacular place. The reception was at Alex’s family home overlooking the Puget Sound. Honestly, everything was just perfect, and it made my job very easy. So many excellent people with so much love at beautiful places. Incredible.
Here are some of my favorites from the day. Huge congrats to Erin and Alex…thank you so much for trusting me to come out and document your day!
P.S. Special thanks to my old friend Kom who worked with me that day. So glad I found out you were living in Seattle!
