The most incredible sunny summer day in Seattle served as the perfect backdrop for this wedding. Maia and Kevin had a sweet first look that involved a few tears and laughs and then we ran all around Seattle taking portraits, everywhere from Melrose Market to Volunteer Park, providing so many great backdrops for their photos. Everyone was all smiles when their close friend read “How falling in love is like owning a dog” during the ceremony. Their labradoodle, Banjo, was the ring bearer and of course was sporting a bow tie.
This was an east coast style affair, with cocktail hour, dancing, toasts, then a late dinner, and more dancing. Everyone was out on the dance floor which was so fun! I loved how unique their wedding was from the banjo and guitar players during cocktail hour to live music from The Nines during the reception. We snuck out for sunset photos and it was one of my favorite parts I captured of the whole day! I couldn’t of done this, also, without the help of my second shooter extraordinaire and best friend, Stephanie Dolen! She captured a LOT of the details and that adorable photo close-up of Banjo! Thanks, Kevin and Maia, for having me be part of your big day! :)
