James and Lexi

Intimate backyard weddings are our favorite to document. Not only are you surrounded by people who genuinely want to be there but you are caught in the middle of a celebration worth remembering. James and Lexi’s wedding was like this from beginning to end. James and Lexi were meant to be together. Lexi’s down to earth, laid back spirit balances Jame’s fiery passion to the letter. This couple showed us what it means to be vulnerable and personal. We love learning from our couples and are glad that their wedding expressed who they are rather than copying wedding trends that we see couples try to do all the time. Their wedding was an experience and we are so grateful for the opportunity to have documented a personal reflection of them with friends and family all around.

Rob and Jacqui

Once upon a time I had a dream I would get married at Stockton Sand Dunes. We would have the ceremony right up on the highest sand dune and slide down after. Since Rob and Jacqui already said I do’s at Watagans State Park, I wanted to document their wedding portraits at the dunes instead. I have always had a fascination with open spaces, whether it be sand dunes, fields, skies, or oceans. It could be my nostalgia since I grew up in Florida where all I would see were beaches, sand, and oceans. I’ve learned to appreciate wide open spaces as time goes on.

Rob and Jacqui have history here. In their earlier days they would drive around in their 4×4, sandboarding, camping, surfing, and being human.

The historical Browns Addition District has always been a favorite of ours to photograph. Hayley and Brandon met through mutual friends at a bar in Spokane. Since Hayley lived in Browns Addition they would take long walks and chat about the future. What better place to have your engagement session at a place where you spent every second with the person you love. Thank you to Brandon and Hayley for allowing us to document your engagement session in Browns Addition. You guys rock.

Rob and Jacqui

I look back on this day immensely grateful for the opportunity Rob and Jacqui gave me to fly back to Australia to document their wedding at Watagans State Park. If someone was to ask me to describe this wedding I would tell them it was one of the most authentic and personable weddings I’ve ever had the pleasure of documenting. From Rob’s Scottish heritage displayed by bagpipes and colors, to the personable ceremony vows- which I wish I had a manuscript of- to our junket in the woods for portraits, to the smoky sunset, to the opera singers bellowing in the night air during reception, to the tender speeches exchanged, and lastly, to the fire spinners to complete the ensemble. It was a day to remember.

The location was the same location we camped out 3 years ago for a photo shoot, which you can see here. What made this wedding uniquely special was all the guests pitched in to help create this beautiful wedding from the set-up to the teardown. All the lights, tables, games, coffee cart, food, music, fun, and laughter was brought to you by everyone that attended this whimsical affair.

I asked Jacqui and Rob why they chose me to be their wedding photographer and the response overwhelmed me with emotion. They knew me and my work. They knew I had a passion for visual storytelling and trusted me in documenting a day that they will now never forget. To be a gatekeeper of the past is a huge responsibility. I almost lost sight of this vision, but with Jacqui and Rob, and others, I have steered back to knowing the importance of why I do what I do.

Lastly, Jacqui left a very heartfelt review that I would love to share with you. Thank you, Jacqui, for being so thoughtful.

“You captured every moment I hoped you would without me knowing you were there! Photos are spectacular! Better than I was dreaming of. I felt I was reliving the day flicking through our photos!”

Hotel Ballard Wedding Photographers

Kandy and Andrew

Kandy and Andrew’s wedding holds a special place in our hearts. We photographed their engagement in downtown Spokane last summer, which you can see here. Their engagement session was full of laughter, emotion, and tenderness. Their wedding was a mix of favorite locations around the Seattle front. Ceremony and bridal portraits were at Discovery Park because they always took walks in the park after a long day to decompress. The reception was at The Gerald for it was one of their favorite bars to go. Getting ready was at the Hotel Ballard, one of Seattle’s oldest historical hotels.

You guys are the best. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us the privilege to be your Hotel Ballard wedding photographers. Without you guys, we would not be able to continue to run our little photo business.

Know anyone getting married as good looking as these two?

Let’s start a conversation.

We want to get to know you on a personal level and document your story. We still have a few openings for 2017 and are now booking for 2018.

Thank you so much being here.
