Roche Harbor wedding portrait of Ainslie and Derrick's whole wedding party by seattle wedding photographer Daniel Sheehan.

Right after the wedding ceremony of Ainslie Wagner and Derrick Clark at the chapel at Roche Harbor Resort on San Juan Island, everyone walked down to the Hotel De Haro and I climbed up to the second stage and photographed the whole wedding party including all of the guests. I love this view with the harbor in the background. What a wonderful day it was.

Ainslie and Derrick's Roche Harbor Wedding by San Juan Island Wedding Photographer Daniel Sheehan

On October 18th,  Jana and I photographed the destination wedding of Ainslie Wagner and Derrick Clark at the Roche Harbor Resort on San Juan Island. The Hotel de Haro there is the state’s oldest continually operating hotel in business since 1886. The resort was formerly a company town surrounding the Tacoma and Roche Harbor Lime Company, which was incorporated in 1886. Lime production was a major industry and for a time it was the largest lime works east of the Mississippi. Many of the historic structures remain along with some modern resort facilities.

Ainslie and Derrick’s  wedding was very romantic and perfect in every way.  Although the weather was rainy the days leading up to the wedding day, on the morning of the 18th it was clear and sunny. The wedding ceremony was in the chapel on the hill above the harbor. Their friends and families were a lot of fun to be around. Jana and I had a blast and the weekend was one we will remember for a long time.

Here are some of my favorite highlights from their wedding day. At the bottom is a slideshow of a more complete set of images of their wedding.

Thanks  to my wife Jana for once again being my fantastic second photographer.

Jana and I had a wonderful time this weekend photographing the destination wedding of Ainslie and Derrick at the Roche Harbor Resort on San Juan Island. The wedding was perfect in every way. Ainslie and Derrick and their family and friends were a lot of fun to be around and their wedding was very romantic. The ceremony was in the chapel. Here are a few preview pictures from the wedding. After they are all processed I will post some more.

Seattle wedding photographer Danile Sheehan phtographed a wedding on Rattlesnake Ridge in the Cascade mountains east of Seattle.

Early on a Monday morning in August, as I was driving east from Seattle to Rattlesnake Ledge in the Cascade mountains to meet up with Marin Pitt and Nicholas Stewart, I was thinking it would be a perfect day to photograph their elopement. Rattlesnake Ridge or Ledge,  is a mountain ridge located south of North Bend, Washington. I met them for the first time in the parking lot below the 3,481′ peak. They had just come out to Washington from Salt Lake City with a couple of friends, one of whom was licensed to perform wedding ceremonies in the state. He was wearing a t-shirt with a picture of Jeff Bridges as the DUDE on it. that should have given me a clue. Marin was wearing a whit wedding dress and smoke jumper boots (she works as a smoke jumper).

I liked Marin and Nick right away and we started to climb the to the top of the ridge. I photographed them as we went and after an hour and a half we reached the summit and we made some more pictures with a grand view off to the higher peaks of the Cascade Range. We decided to hike down a little to a place not far from the top and have the wedding ceremony. The Dude, The Big Lebowski, would have loved the ceremony. It was a Dudeism  wedding ceremony and it was a first for me. It was very touching and afterwards we hiked down occasionally passing other hikers coming up.

Wedding in the Cascade Mountains  on Rattlesnake Ridge

Marin Pitt and Nicholas Stewart decided to elope and journeyed from Salt Lake City to the Cascade Mountains. On Monday I climbed up to the summit of Rattlesnake Ridge outside of North Bend with them and photographed their wedding ceremony. They had just two friends along to perform and witness the ceremony. Here are a couple of preview pictures. I will post some more after I process them all.

Here is a link to the final post with Marin and Nick’s Rattlesnake Ridge wedding photos.
