Natalie & Sam // Seattle Engagement Session at Discovery Park & Ballard

I’m working hard to catch up on blogging! My wedding season starts this weekend, and I’m so excited for every wedding I’ve got this year. Back in April, I went over to Seattle to shoot Natalie & Sam’s engagement session. Like I said in their preview post, the weather was a little crazy. But April in Seattle is like that, and I think it’s great. Less than two months later, I’m looking at 80 degrees today in Spokane, and I’m wondering what 45 and rainy feels like. :)

What I loved most about this shoot was that both the places we went – Discovery Park and Ballard – are special to Natalie and Sam. Having an engagement session gives you an idea of what it feels like to be in front of the camera, but it also gives you a chance to have some photos in places that are meaningful to you.

Tyrone Wells at The Bartlett // Spokane Music Photography

It’s a little known fact that, back when I was in college, I dated a guy in a local band. I was also at that point in my obsession with photography that I felt like I needed to carry my camera everywhere and photograph everything. I have, in the years since, purged a lot of terrible photography from my computer. Over the past eight years, I’ve learned a lot.

In the long run, the only thing that lasted was my passion for photography. He and I broke up, the band broke up (not related incidences), and I don’t really shoot musicians anymore. However, photographing concerts has always been something I’ve enjoyed. There’s an energy in the crowd, in the performers, and I really enjoy the connection of the musician to the music. So I was overjoyed when I had the chance to shoot the Tyrone Wells concert when he came to Spokane in March. It was a great show, and I’d never before been to the Bartlett, but I have to say it’s now one of my favorite venues in Spokane.

Joel & Dan // Within Sodo Wedding — Seattle Wedding Photographer

Joel & Dan were married last August at Within Sodo, and ever since I drove home (with the windows down) at midnight after their wedding, I’ve been trying to find the words to describe their wedding. And months later, I don’t feel like I’m any closer to doing these wonderful men justice. Joel & Dan are an amazing, creative, and loving couple. They planned the wedding day to make sure every guest had a wonderful time. There were couches for lounging, space for dancing, drinks before the ceremony, and a the whole space was filled with love.

Basically, this wedding was a true reflection of Joel & Dan’s love, and their relationship. They are such caring, giving, people, and I have been so honored to know them. Their wedding day had me laughing, crying, and dancing. Sometimes doing more than one at a time. This wedding? It was one for the books.

Joel & Dan, thank you. Thank you for the epic dance party, the beautiful rooftop moments, for dancing in fur coats, and for having me along and allowing me to spend the day with you, your families, and your guests. It was an honor. And another huge thank you to the lovely and talented Kate Ford, who shot this wedding with me. She’s my favorite Seattle tea buddy and shooting partner. Some of these shots are hers. Vendors are at the bottom.
