maria and ash | an intimate + socially distant wedding at kerry park in seattle, washington
the arrival of the bride and groom, masked and ready to roll, and you know, GET MARRIED!!!
maria and ash's guests mingled social distance style in the warm summer sun, with perfectly clear views of the city and mildly hazy views of mount rainier.
despite the difficulty of the pandemic, maria and ash, as well as their guests, all exuded so much warmth and joy on this truly gorgeous day!
these two were sure to capture everything on instagram live!! so i made sure i was featured as well lol.
they also had a polaroid on site so everyone was taking pics! I HIGHLY recommend this! It's soo fun and allows everyone to be a photographer for the day :)
phones work of course too, but there's nothing like that instant satisfaction of printing out a polaroid!
two of ash and maria's friends and guests gifted them with a festive bottle of champagne.
and the judge who officiated the wedding took socially distancing super seriously (which we all truly appreciated!)
i'm serious, sun flares are kind of a love language of mine.
how can you not enjoy the strange way light bounces off my lens and creates an image like the one above?
so much texture, and feeling is immediately felt when i'm able to capture some sun flare. so fun and rad.
while many photographers may cringe at the prospect of shooting in broad daylight, i can quite enjoy it!
i love playing with sun flares (as you know already lol), and creating images that feel dynamic with strong linear compositions.
and gosh the colors. they are all just so prominent and bright. i love it so much.
how fun is this shot! seriously, i enjoy playing with movement so much. and creating an image that, hopefully, immerses you into the story.
humans are all so unique and beautiful in the ways they express themselves.
my photography is all about capturing this.
the art of humans.
the art of humanity.
and the art of your unique style! i mean, look at the bride's red dress! how fun!
maria looked so gorgeous in her dress - its design is so effortless minimalistic, with that gorgeous bold red, and chic little heels.
