Today marks Sara and Daniel’s one-year wedding anniversary! We had such a great time at their intimate, beachside wedding last year. I’ve been photographing weddings for over 16 years (and I’ll be celebrating my own 9th wedding anniversary next month!), but it still always amazes me how much goes into planning even the smallest details to make the day special and beautiful. I love it.
Small, intimate weddings are my favorite. As a photographer, I can focus on you and your partner and all of the fine details while you can focus on each other and your closest friends and family.
Sara was able to change into a short cocktail dress for the reception which made dancing with her family and new husband a lot easier!
If you’re in the process of planning a small wedding, I would love to chat with you about your plans and your dreams of how you want your day documented.
The moment Megan asked me to be the photographer for her wedding with Thom Mezak, I KNEW it was going to be simple, gorgeous, and so laid back. These are a few of my favorite wedding things. Megan booked a house on Capitol Hill through VRBO and it had everything they needed for an intimate “Seattle backyard wedding.”
The couple got ready with their bridal party in separate parts of the house, while family and friends decorated the house and their puppers Grouch watched. They laughed their way through the patio ceremony and celebrated the nuptials with a small champagne reception that trickled out to the driveway. (The big party was happening the following night at The Stables in Georgetown where I was able to be a guest and not a photographer! Yay!)
I had so much fun with the bridal party — some of whom I’ve known about half of my life.
Hands down, this has got to be my absolute favorite wedding that I ever shot and participated in. Enjoy the Mezaktrimony! Just in case you missed it, take a look back at my blog post for Megan & Thom’s engagement session at Volunteer Park and their dog who stole the show.
