Hawaii Wedding

There’s something about Hawaii that is pure magic.  Aside from the breathtaking scenery, relaxing music, and the general hawaiian spirit, something about being on an island in the middle of the Pacific ocean makes it all feel a little more serene.  Dreamlike, almost.  For Mari and Kenji, I believe that feeling was even more tangible, since Hawaii is closer to the US mainland, where they both met while studying in the states.  (They both are from, and live in Japan…and planned this whole perfect wedding from Tokyo!) Marrying between the continental US and their home of Japan served as the perfect poetic setting, bringing together two distinct parts of their lives for such a special occasion.  They married in Honolulu, Hawaii at Lanikuhonua, which translates to “where heaven meets earth”  - an ocean cove, where the wind blew through the palm trees and the sun set over the water.  We couldn’t have asked for more, except possibly to not have to say goodbye.  I admit to feeling a little misty after their day after session, hugging and saying goodbye to some new favorite friends, sending them back to their home on the other side of the world.  Until we see these two again, we’ll remember that amazing time our paths crossed, at their perfect wedding, on that lovely little island cove where Heaven meets Earth.

Seattle wedding

Our blog readers certainly already know that one of our favorite aspects of being a wedding photographer is all the wonderful people we get to meet along the way… and Sara and Jonathan really drive that point home for us.  After photographing Sara and Jonathan’s wedding this spring, we were thrilled for the chance to photograph them on their homefront of Seattle, Washington!  With open-window weather in the middle of August (sigh!) and ocean and mountains side by side, what more could we ask for?  If there was anything missing from this perfect scene, Sara and Jonathan brought it.  Loads of laughter, sandy toes (and dress!), and beautiful sunsets made these wedding photos come alive, and reminded us how much we love this couple.  Here’s our favorite photos from Sara and Jonathan’s “day after” session in Seattle!

Washington DC Wedding

I feel like I’m posting the wedding photos for old friends on this one…  Our experience shooting Sasame and Charlie’s wedding in D.C. was similar to our first meeting with them on skype.  Lots of laughter and when we were finished, Adam and I couldn’t stop talking about how awesome they were.  :)  We were counting down the days until meeting them in person, seeing (and cheering!) for their hitching celebration, and joining afterward for some camera-free dancing with the whole gang.  I think that in a lot of ways Sasame and Charlie had our dream wedding- small and informal, held at the Spanish Steps down the street from their place.  They followed with a DANCING reception at Hillyer Art Space, just a few blocks away. If that doesn’t sound perfect enough-they were escorted (New Orleans style) by a brass band the few blocks to their reception.  Anyone who knows us knows… we are all about New Orleans Jazz, and it is often in the background as the playlist to our lives, so paired with dancing guests and lots of honking horns, this was perfection!  :)  But like we mentioned- it was more perfect for us because we felt like we had known these two for longer, and are thrilled to have met them in time to see their wedding!  So, here’s a few favorites from Sasame and Charlie’s wedding in DC!

  • Emily - Wow! Y’all were the perfect photographers for them! The first look…sigh.

  • Colin - Beautiful! What a great, intimate gathering. Love the first look shots. The B&W’s are great, too! You two are special ;)

  • Val - The “first look” is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen! How fun!!

  • Salami - The steps … the Band … the Laughter … the Dancing! – the two of you caught the essence of this wonderful couple. You both are amazing!

  • Micah - man oh man you guys are gooooood!! geez!

  • Dani - Candid shots are the absolute best! What a lovely wedding!

  • Liz - So beautiful! Where did you do the first look?

New York Engagement SessionJane and Jon could quite possibly be two of the most genuinely kind hearts that ever lived.  From our first chat with them on skype we knew they’d be a joy to work with, and meeting them in New York City for the engagement session didn’t disappoint.  With their creative spirits (he’s in film and she’s a web designer), love for delicious local food, and great taste in music there was plenty to chat about.  I believe it goes without saying that they are perhaps THE perfect subjects to have in front of the camera, and adding that magnificent New York skyline into the mix made it hard to stop taking pictures of them!  We’re so looking forward to their wedding this fall, and if their friends are anything like they are it’s sure to be an amazing celebration!New York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement SessionNew York Engagement Session
