Ahhhhh, Alyssa. Such a good friend … Such an amazingly patient lady! It’s been well over a month since my trip back to Seattle, WA to photograph my dear friend Alyssa’s wedding, and I’m so happy I get to finally share some teasers! This was a super fun day for me as I was just one part of an awesome photography team; the other players were my dear friends Laurel McConnell, Barbie Hull and Jenny Jimenez. I know you’re probably thinking that four wedding photographers is a little excessive – but maybe not so much when you’re a wedding and portrait photographer yourself. 🙂
I started my day with some getting ready photos at the Comfort Suites on Lower Queen Anne in Seattle. I loved the wallpaper in the bathroom and had to grab a fun shoe shot in there:
Alyssa’s bridesmaid Erin’s face cracks me up so much in that last photo above. I am hoping she sees the funny side of me posting it. 🙂 With the dress on, time for a couple of cute window-light portraits:
For the first look I took a back seat as Laurel worked her magic. I ended up scrambling around in some bushes trying to find a good vantage point – much to Aaron and Alyssa’s amusement when they spotted me!
Laurel led the portrait session over at the EMP, and I grabbed a few candids here and there. I love how Aaron looks at Alyssa, I love how Alyssa giggles, and I love their sense of fun. 🙂
The EMP is famous for its crazy pink wall. Love the cotton candy shots there!
Barbie, Laurel and I split the ceremony coverage. In hindsight it may have been a little much having three photographers roaming around Parson’s Garden (it’s so tiny!) but it was really nice knowing that I could focus on the long shots while Laurel was working the wide lens and Barbie was funking it up with her toy camera. I LOVE this first shot of Alyssa tearing up as her dad walks her down the aisle …
The ceremony was beautiful, really personal and with tons of laugh-out-loud moments. Aaron looked so sweetly at his bride, and Alyssa belly laughed as only she can. Loves!
After the ceremony I grabbed this photo of Aaron and Alyssa hugging Alyssa’s brother – such a sweet moment.
Thank you, Aaron & Alyssa, for a super fun Seattle wedding day, and for your AMAZING patience. Your guys rock xx.
