I’m so excited to post Aaron & Alicia’s wedding! I flew in to SeaTac from Spokane the morning of this wedding & couldn’t wait to get going. One reason is that it took place at the amazing Landmark Event Center in Des Moines, Washington, overlooking Puget Sound. Another reason is that I was able to work with the outstanding ladies from Bitsy Events. Not only were they great wedding coordinators, but they’re the team who also created the beautiful printed materials for the wedding.
Of course the biggest reason I was so excited for this wedding was that it was an opportunity to hang out with, & take photos Alicia & Aaron for an entire day. It was an incredible day. Hopefully you’ll see that the photos tell that story.
Some sessions are perfect from the beginning, and some aren’t. This one wasn’t. I started the session by locking my keys in the car—along with my camera gear. The only thing I had in my hand was a Diana F+ camera with 5 shots of Polaroid film in it & a flash (the last shot in this series is from that camera). So we had some time to just hang out while waiting for someone to arrive to break in to my car. I had a great time just hanging out sans camera with these two. And to be honest, I think it actually helped the final product be what it is—stellar. So good, in fact, that I still don’t believe that these two don’t have extensive modeling backgrounds—regardless of what they tell me.
This session is also a great example of how I like to work, a nice mix of natural light & lighting with flashes. Basically doing what ever’s necessary to get the best photo.
