Andy & Carol….Wedding
Andy and Carol were such fun during their engagement session that I could hardly wait for their wedding day. This laid back, super cool couple was so relaxed on their wedding day. They gave me all the time I needed to capture their beautiful downtown event. We started outside the Mayflower Hotel….I love urban settings like this where the background gets lost and my subjects become so foreground. Seattle’s fall weather has been amazing and they were blessed with a glorious day. The lighting was spectacular.
It can get tricky shooting downtown and avoiding all the people in the background. The hotel exterior offered some interesting details in the background for these shots. I love the way the wind caught her dress here.
Andy stole a kiss in the elevator.
We were off to the church. LOVE these fun red doors.
My favorite look that Carol does so well is this subtle smile…so sexy. Andy just kept snuggling in and loving every moment he could be close to his bride.
The reception at the Palace Ballroom was ROCKING! The Michael Benson Band always keeps the dance floor on fire. They played at my wedding 12 years ago and every-time I get to see Michael it is a treat. If you want to insure your dance floor is never empty at your wedding, Michael Benson is the man.
Over at the bar, I caught the fantastic MOB and MOG…that is Mother of the Bride and Mother of the Groom…toasting to the marriage of their kids with a Tequila shot.
Andy and Carol, it was an honor to be your photographer. Thank you for everything! You are dream clients!
