Happy New Year! I took a couple weeks out of the office for the holidays and visited family in California and relaxed. Now that I’m back, I have quite a folder of wedding and engagement shoots to share with you from last year.
The San Juan Islands are one of my favorite places to photograph. I love how relaxed and connected to nature they feel. I was lucky enough to photograph quite a few weddings there this past summer. Laura and Kyle’s Roche Harbor wedding was one of my favorites. I’ve known these two for a while now and it’s always a pleasure to spend time with them. They are both exceedingly kind and generous people. They seem to see the best in everyone and were surrounded by a collection of bright friends with that same spirit. They also have an obviously strong connection and warm bond that’s beautiful to witness.
Laura’s dress was stunning but it was so well fitted that it made climbing into the car for photos a creative and tricky process. But it worked out and we made it up to the mausoleum. Kyle is a lawyer and during the ceremony he whipped out his vows on yellow legal paper. Laughter roared and Laura had no chance of keeping a straight face.
For their wedding they had an all-star team of wedding professionals helping out.
