This may be the only wedding I’ve been to where the date was chosen, at least in part, based on the five day forecast.
Just when I thought I was done shooting for the year I got an email asking if I was available and interested in photographing a last minute smaller than small wedding.
Yes, of course, small weddings are my favorite and Friday mornings in December are usually spent in front of a computer doing things I could easily push back a few hours.
My enthusiasm only increased when I discovered the two parks being considered – Pioneer Park and Luther Burbank - which are both high on my list of all time favorite places.
And so a little adventure began with a walk through the enchanged forest of Pioneer Park to a favorite lookout point not far from their home. Next came a sweet ceremony where I was both photographer and witness. I love that just as Seattle wedding officient extrordanaire Annemarie Juhlian was talking about best friends a small dog appeared and walked right through the ceremony. Afterwards we headed to Luther Burbank Park for sun soaked portraits amongst long lasting fall colors and bright blue skies. Aside from the winter coats you’d never guess was December in the Seattle area.
