Seattle Wedding Photographer

Seattle wedding photographer covered a wedding at Thornewood Castle in Lakewood, WA

Rachel Todd and Zach Klein were married in a wedding ceremony in the rose garden at Thornewood Castle in Lakewood, Washington on Saturday. the weather was wonderful after a week with a lot of rain. Thornewood Castle is a 500-year-old Tudor Gothic historic site known as “the house that love built.” It is one of the few genuine private castles in the United States, a world-class historic site and a magnificent location for weddings and receptions in the Seattle/Tacoma area. A century ago, pieces from a 400-year-old English castle were taken from England and brought to the Pacific Northwest and were used to completely rebuild and recreate an authentic traditional English Tudor Gothic castle, Rachel and Zach both looked so happy and were great to photograph throughout the day. Here are a few pictures to preview the rest that will be coming after editing and processing in a few weeks.

Seattle wedding photographer makes panoramic wedding portrait at the Columbia Tower Club

Jack Safar and Will Bean were married at the Columbia Tower Club  in August and after the ceremony we cleared the chairs and everybody posed for this large group wedding portrait.

I really love the Columbia Tower Club. the view is splendid on a clear day and we could fit 160+ people in one panoramic frame. The 12″ x 36″ print look spectacular as well.

Here is a link to the previous post with of Will and Jack’s Columbia Tower Club wedding pictures and a link to the previous post with a preview of Will and Jack’s Columbia Tower Club wedding photos.

Will Bean and Jack Safar  have been together for years. Last month, their happy mothers got to walk them down the isle at the Columbia Tower Club   where the two finally married, surrounded by family, friends and spectacular panoramic views of Seattle. Before the wedding ceremony, we had a nice time taking pictures around downtown with the skyline in the background, as well as at the renovated train station on King Street. It was a beautiful day full of joy; just one of all the obvious reasons why legal recognition of same-sex marriage by Washington and eighteen other states is a wonderful thing. Hopefully, same-sex couples everywhere will be able to enjoy the celebration of their love and commitment the same way soon.

Thanks to Kelli Bielema of Shindig Events, for all of her delightful help at the wedding and to Tracey Salazar for being my second photographer. DJ Sean of Seattle Parties  kept the great music flowing throughout the reception.

Wedding photographs from a wedding at the Rosehill Community Center, Mukilteo

Last Friday I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Becka Johnson and Mikel Poppe in Mukilteo, WA. We made some pictures first at the Mukilteo Lighthouse as the ferries came in and left on a beautiful warm and clear September day. The wedding ceremony and reception were up the hill a little at the Rosehill Community Center. Here are a few preview photos from a large take that needs some editing. Becka & Poppe are headed to Hawaii for their honeymoon so I wanted them to see a preview of what will be coming. Wedding planner Alyssa of Alyssa Hoffman Event Design and Coordination made the whole day flow smoothly.
