Thompson Hotel Wedding

Here’s another whirlwind couple who planned their wedding in just weeks.  I have to say, I’m kinda loving this quick approach to wedding planning that seems to be taking hold this year! Kate and Jasmine were married just last weekend at the gorgeous new Thompson Hotel in Seattle, high above the city in their swanky rooftop bar they call The Nest. Let me first say that absolutely everything about this day was fabulous. Jasmine’s Vera Wang gown and royal blue pompom heels were TO DIE for and Kate’s tailored suit and holster socks (she’s a police officer) were absolute perfection. Their cake was stunning (and tasty) and custom designed by Chef Kate with the color inspiration coming from Jasmine’s bouquet (which is paper, if you can believe it) created by Pink & Posey. What started as a morning of torrential downpour, ended in blue skies and sunshine and all the smiles. I cannot thank Jasmine and Kate enough for sharing their perfect day with me and to all of their amazing friends and family who were all so friendly and made me feel incredibly welcome. All my love to you all! xx, Amy

Romantic Hollywood Schoolhouse Wedding

Last month I was overjoyed to capture Natasha and Danielle’s romantic Hollywood Schoolhouse wedding in the heart of Woodinville. These ladies created such a lovely and unique backdrop for all of their family and friends. These two love to travel and I really liked how they incorporated all of the special little details- from the table settings of globes and greenery to their Boston cream cake set atop antique travel cases.  Their guests signed a watercolor map and gave suggestions for their next great trip and the joyous 10-year-old in me loved the fortune tellers at each table which opened up into menus. OH! And what an incredibly cool idea to create a custom unity painting during the ceremony! Big hugs to Danielle, Natasha, their friends and family for sharing your absolutely wonderful day with us. xx, Amy

Elizabeth and Ty know how to throw a party together. I received a text on a Friday asking if I was available to photograph their wedding vows… high atop the city in a gondola on The Great Wheel…in 7 days. Well, it turned out to be 8 days but there we were- a lovely ceremony presided over by a friend, 175 feet above sea level.  And it was absolutely wonderful.  I love it when a plan comes together and I am so honored that these two chose me to capture the magic.  Best wishes to my favorite new Foxes for a long and happy life together!!  xx, Amy

  

Seattle Senior Portaits

Those of you who know me know that senior high school portraits are not typically my jam. Like, at all. However, when I was asked by one of my favorite wedding clients to photograph her totally rad daughter, I simply couldn’t say no.  And you know what?  It was awesome. Lilly is the coolest chick around and clearly, the camera loves her. If all senior sessions took place in the gritty alleys and corners of Capitol Hill with this fierce fashion vibe, I might just do them more often. Thanks to Lilly for being such an amazing (and fun!) model and to Candis for trusting me to capture her wonderful personality; you two having me second guessing my ban on senior portraits.  🙂 xx, Ames

Finally, shout out to my favorite cupcake place, Cupcake Royale, for their amazing (and photogenic) Red Velvet cupcakes. Also, to all of the fantastic artists who created the stunning mural art at our last stop- Josh Dall, Denial, Lina Cholewinski, Connie Fu, Bisco and Leoshallat.

Seattle Senior Portraits

  

These two sweethearts were married in January in Woodinville at Redhook Brewery.  Now, what’s better than a wedding with a dog?  How about a wedding with two dogs?! While Kristi and Corey weren’t able to have their little Winnie and big, goofy Chester at the actual ceremony, we sure made up for it with plenty of puppy snuggles pre-wedding. Their ceremony was short and sweet, followed by a completely fantastic party with burgers, ice-cream cake and lots of dancing.  Big thanks for sharing your most joyful f days with us!!! xx, Amy
