My friend & fellow photographer Dana Pleasant had me along at one of her recent weddings at the beautiful The Hall at Fauntleroy in West Seattle. Even though I absolutely love working as a second photographer on the days that I don’t have weddings, it’s always a different kind of nerve-wracking to second shoot a wedding when I’ve yet to meet the couple or even know exactly what I’m to expect. But there was nothing to worry about with Erin & Nathan’s wedding; they are such a fabulous couple, full of warmth & reserved passion… incredibly stylish and unexpectedly laid back. It was a very simple ceremony, but in its simplicity it was extremely elegant, and the sunny weather seemed to boost everyone’s mood. And they had Molly Moon’s ice cream, my friends. Molly Moon’s! I almost could’ve done an entire post with all the photos I have of so many happy faces & giddy grown ups… it was so hard to cull those down to just a choice few. Oh, the simple things in life, that make grown people feel like children again!
The couple was exquisite, the weather couldn’t have been better, their families & friends were so loving, and working with Dana is always a treat… all in all, it was truly the loveliest of weddings.
A big huge blog hug to Dana for letting me tag along all day… do yourselves a favor and check out her beautiful perspective of the wedding on her blog!
