Fall Playlist 2014

fall has settled in. here in seattle, the rains have started. it's starting to feel eternally damp and cool outside and i'd be lying if i said i wasn't kind of excited for it all. we've had a beautiful indian summer and gloriously golden october but now the nights are longer and the days are shorter. i've waited until a little later in the season to share this quarterly playlist with you a little because i was waiting for ben howard to share his new tunes with us all but mostly because i had been holding onto summer a bit this year. a wedding photographer doesn't get to enjoy the summer weekends as much as most do. i didn't even get to go paddleboarding (my new favorite activity) or swim in any body of water until september. but now, i've let fall take over and fully surrendered to the sweater weather. it's no secret that it's my absolute favorite time of year. and it's high time for this wedding photographer's off season to begin, with a whole new list of goals - both business and personal - to keep me busy.

i'm hoping to keep my soul at ease, my mind focused, and my heart grateful in this off season. and i'll be listening to these artists while i do it. enjoy this cozy playlist, folks. it's a good one.

Kelly & Eric | Seattle Engagement Photographer

it was the most perfect indian summer, early fall afternoon for an engagement session. we traipsed around greenlake, one of their favorite date spots. kelly and eric were pros at flirting in front of the camera and even better at having fun with each other while making it look so easy. playful, intimate, silly, endearing - their love has it all. and it was such an honor just to be around these two and document such a wonderful time in their lives. 

i adore these two. i mean like, really adore them. they're exactly the kind of couple that i love working with and i absolutely can't wait to shoot their seattle wedding next august!

Faith & Justin | Four Seasons Seattle Wedding Photographer

faith and justin are a dynamite duo. their shared faith and their love for each other is so apparent in their interactions. they pulled off one of the most elegant weddings i've ever seen. the four seasons in downtown seattle was the perfect backdrop for their sparkling party. gold and rose tones filled every corner of the ceremony and reception. and the adorable details, including donut favors for every guest, were a charming finishing touch. 

thank you to the incredible team of vendors who pulled this together in order to make this such an unforgettable day for the happy couple. and congratulations to faith and justin. it was a day that wedding dreams are made of.
