When I talk with new wedding clients, I instantly want to know their story. I am genuinely intrigued in the how-why-when-what that brought them together. There are over 7 billion people in this world, and to find one that fits you like a puzzle piece? I want to dig into that story. Scratch that, I want to help TELL that story. Because why? Because it gives me hope, it gives me peace, it melts my heart, and makes my mind go “boom” in the most beautiful way.
After almost 9 months of phone calls and emailing, I finally met Shye and Betsy in Seattle’s Capitol Hill District over a cup of coffee. The minute I saw the pair, I was so excited to get them in front of my lens. These two are gorgeous and the chemistry between them is amazing.
As we tried to eat beignets politely (darn it, how do you eat those those things without ending up covered in powdered sugar?), we chatted about the wedding day venue (Stocker Farms in Snohomish, Washington) and the plans for the big day.
I told them I will probably cry at their wedding- they asked me, “Really? don’t you get sick of the same thing over and over? “
No, no I don’t. Because it is NEVER the same “thing”. Sure, the dress is usually white and the flowers are beautiful. There is a first dance and a first kiss. But the love, the love is never the same… and that’s what keeps me coming back for more when it comes to photographing a wedding day.
“I like geography best, (s)he said, because your mountains & rivers know the secret. Pay no attention to boundaries.”
Betsy and Shye, I absolutely loved being a part of your day. Thank you again a for trusting me to capture your beautiful faces and your stunning love. I wish you all the best as you walk forward in this adventure of wife and wife!
