Hi and welcome to my online home! I am a photographer located in Phoenix, Arizona. I'm married to my wonderful hubby, Jon, and we have 7 fur babies: Kitty Amazing, Baby Kitty, Petunia, and China, our cats, Hank and Seymour, our dogs, and Junichiro, our hedgehog. Admittedly, Junichiro is more of a spiky baby than a fur baby. I love travel, nutella, donuts, cupcakes, (okay just bring me all the carbs alright?), reading, green tea, soccer, dancing, and soft pillow cases. I love having you, I hope you stay awhile.
Meghan and Scott have followed a long path of friendship to get to this point. They met back in 2006 through mutual friends when they attended Western Washington University. They were friends for a long time and stayed in touch after Meghan moved back to Seattle. They eventually realized that they had all the same things in common and that they really liked each other!! They officially got together in 2013.
And 5 years later… they made it to their wedding day! The Hall at Fauntleroy’s brick facade complete with woodsy garden for the ceremony was exactly what Meghan envisioned for her day.
When I arrived at the adorable West Seattle house where Meghan and her girls were getting ready, I died when I saw her Valencia Vega dress from I Do Bridal. It looked like the entire back and shoulders were made from dripping crystal. It was perfect.
To make things even more perfect, Meghan and Scott had their first look on the beach at Lincoln Park in West Seattle, complete with ferries shuttling in and out behind them.
The ceremony was out in the garden covered with huge Pine trees. A simple arbor layered with white tulle marked the place where they would exchange vows. The officiant, Brent, is a friend of the couple who got to share personal details of their relationship. I love when officiants are friends of the couple! I think it makes everything so much more special. And speaking of special, Meghan was walked down the aisle by her mom and dad, who could not have looked more proud.
During the reception, I could barely hold back my own tears during Meghan’s dad’s speech. The way he talked about his daughter and how he entrusted her life to Scott because of the great man he is was amazing. I know dad’s hate crying, but there is something seeing an emotional father embracing his daughter’s husband that gets me every. time.
These two are such amazing people. They embrace each other’s quirks and interests, and they built their relationship on 7 years of friendship before pursuing romance. What a solid foundation they have as they enter this next stage in their life. Because as we grow old, romance and even our firm skin and awesome bods may fade, but that friendship will make every moment more special than the last. Because exploring life with your best friend is such a gift. And I couldn’t have had more fun getting to know these two wonderful humans and capturing their wedding day!
