Here’s another fantastic wedding celebration from the magical place called Leavenworth, WA! Kia & Matthew chose to have their wedding at one of my favorite venues, The Sleeping Lady Resort. Once in a while I get to photograph a wedding that has me leaving feeling like I’m a better person from having been there. This is one of those weddings. You can see how much Kia & Matthew’s families love them as well as each other. This made my job relatively easy, because as much as I love cool and unique portraits, the thing that draws me to wedding photography is the chance to capture those great, singular moments and little details that really show the story of two people deciding to get married.
It was also a little extra fun because I got to shoot it with the video team from Ferguson Films who always make fantastic wedding day films as well as being pretty dang fun to work with.
Excited to finally be able to share photos from Sarah & Keith’s wedding at Spokane’s great Glover Mansion! The day started at Salon Sapphire before we ran across the street so Sarah could pick up her dress at Marcella’s Bridal before heading up to the mansion. Unfortunately Keith was pretty sick and his energy was sapped but since he made the decision to have a great wedding day, a great wedding day he had. I always find it impressive at how attitude and desire make a huge difference in enjoying parts of life that might not go the exact way you want.
It’s almost like a pattern, that couples who are surrounded by friends and family on their wedding day, make for some sweet moments that are a joy to capture. Plus, having a couple who want to make great photos makes a nice team and really pushes me to create great photos for them. The Glover Mansion is a great venue, not just because of the historic beauty that surrounds you, but the beautiful places surrounding the Glover Mansion, like Manito Park & Cliff Drive. Even with storms showing up just in time for the ceremony, it was just a perfect day.
