Nina & John

Nina and I began corresponding last fall while I was in Chile for my wedding in Santiago. I'll never forget her first e-mail; it was so kind and inviting that a portion of her inquiry now leads the moments section of my portfolio. I'm very excited to be working with Nina and John!

We had such a gorgeous spring evening for their pre-wedding day session! We met in quaint downtown Edmonds at Starbucks and walked down to the picturesque waterfront park where we enjoyed our time against the backdrop of the sunset and comings and goings of the ferry. We timed it perfectly to take advantage of the day's loveliest and last light.

Nina and John will be married on June 23, 2007 at the amazing Suncadia Resort in Cle Elum. Such a great venue for this beautiful and fun loving couple.

Since we share a love for travel and Latin music, I've chosen Fotografia by Juanes & Nelly Furtado for Nina and John's SLIDESHOW. I love this song even though all the lyrics that I can find for it are in Spanish. I hope the words are as sweet and fun as its tune.

Nancy & Donn

Nancy and Donn, what a joy it has been getting to know you (and Cotswold :) over the last few months! From our first meeting, and beyond the Southern roots that Donn and I share, we enjoyed such a natural connection. You are two of the most friendly and fun loving people one could ever meet. Nancy, you are such a kind soul and radiant spirit, and I have delighted in our correspondence! How wonderful it was to photograph your overflowing enthusiasm, spontaneity and love on your wedding day!

Thank you for sharing your day and so much more with me! You were both so very gracious and went out of your way to make Jeff and me feel among your closest guests - even before the wedding. Thank you for making it a point to introduce us to so many of the special people in your life.

Nancy and Donn have an endearing love story that began in an elevator at the Metropolitan Building in downtown Seattle. This is where they met - once - then twice - then Donn figured he better not let this amazing woman disappear again. On their beautiful, blue-sky wedding day, we went back to where the spark began. On the rooftop, the incredible view was the perfect backdrop for the tango!

Nancy was full of surprises: her vibrant parasol, spicy tango dress, magnificent band and the groom's cake, to name a few. What shape does the groom cake take when the groom is from Texas? An armadillo, of course. And, what does an armadillo wear to a wedding? Texas bluebonnets, of course. It was truly cute - until Donn cut its poor head off to reveal a red velvet interior. Shocking and so much fun for all of us!

Nancy and Donn had a truly elegant wedding at the Women's University Club, which has a very interesting history dating back to 1914. The whole day was a delight! So much expression! SLIDESHOW!
