Rachel and I met when we both worked at a skincare company in Seattle. I had just put in my two weeks notice to pursue my photography career full time, and she had just been hired. I remembered her mentioning that her boyfriend lived out of state, and she was waiting just a short while longer for him to move up to Washington to be with her. When Chris proposed earlier this year I was secretly hoping they would ask me to be their wedding photographer, and was so excited when they reached out about it! After a super fun engagement shoot on the Pier 66 rooftop downtown, I was anticipating their big day even more.
Come wedding day you could feel the excitement from both of them as they got ready in separate hotel rooms downtown. The day flew by with help from a flurry of fun activities and a delicious brunch, and getting to take photos at Chophouse Row in Seattle was definitely a fun experience for me as I normally don’t get to shoot a lot in non-grassy/woodsy environments. After an amazing bubble exit we ended things with photos over at the Volunteer Park Conservatory which was absolutely beautiful, especially with the couple being so easy to coach! Seriously, I barely had to tell them what to do, and they just looked so great the entire time. Overall it was a fantastic day and I’m so happy and grateful that Chris and Rachel allowed us to capture their wedding.
