“Adventure, this is what you two are about to embark on. The most challenging, most rewarding...most love-filled adventure that you’ll ever take.” Watch Tiffany and Ryan’s Robinswood House wedding video on the blog - Link in Bio.
I really really did not want to have a wedding. Not that I didn't want to get married, but I didn't want to plan a wedding bc I know myself and how I handle stress and social pressure. The months leading up to it were stressful, the very moments before the ceremony we stressful. I had to stop myself thinking and take a moment to realize that I was standing there with my dad about to do this really momentous thing. I'm happy we did it. We had a wonderful time. What I didn't expect was to be so moved by the happiness of my parents. They wanted us to have a wedding, my mom told me she'd been dreaming of my wedding since I was born. Before the day, that just felt like additional social pressure, but on the day of, seeing their pure joy and pride and love for us was uplifting and contagious. It made it feel like a gift we were giving to them. The least I can do after 28 years of life provided by them. The joy on their faces in the photos are one of the most precious things I take away from it.

This speech by the brides mom was so powerful. I was so moved for the love she expressed for her daughter and her new son-in-law who had recently lost his own mother to cancer. Moments and connections like these are why I love documenting weddings.
Today I'm lost in a dream of the day I'll get to see the professional photos from this sophisticated garden wedding from @kirstenmariephotography. *cough* hint hint *cough* 😉😍 My iPhone shot hardly does justice to this gorgeous set up!

Parker & Angela = such a dreamboat. I was so excited to shoot their "2nd wedding" after their intimate ceremony last year in downtown Seattle. I was so honored that they asked me to come back for their big reception!!! 💕
