It felt like nature was celebrating along with us at Golden Gardens for John & Glenda’s engagement session. The cherry blossoms were blooming, the seals were barking and a beaver swam slowly by. I can’t wait to see what magic happens at their Daybreak Star ceremony later this summer!
Maui is a sort of magical place every day, but this Christmas Day morning was especially amazing for my shoot with Pooja & Vishal who were visiting the island for the first time on a little getaway before the arrival of their little one. We had amazingly vibrant rainbows almost the entire time that we strolled along Baldwin Beach and finally—of course—Baby Beach.
There’s a bit of magic that seems to swirl around most wedding days.
Inevitably, something will go wrong. Like they ship you the wrong dress and you end up shopping for your gown the day before the wedding. But that’s when the magic happens, like Erin finding this darling, off-the-rack, tea-length number that could not have been any cuter or fit her any more perfectly.
And planning a pop-up style wedding in January is a real gamble in Seattle, but these two ended up with the most gorgeous, sunny day to tie the knot at the Kimpton Alexis Hotel downtown. With just a couple of weeks notice, Erin and Matt managed to bring together their family and friends for a gorgeous afternoon affair with the sweetest staircase ceremony and plenty of celebratory champagne!
