romantic snuggle picture of bride and groom in black and white at seattle's ballard locksErika and Zach tied the knot this weekend during the wackiest weather I’ve ever experienced at a wedding: pouring down rain while the sky was bright blue and the sun shone on. Oh Seattle, we have no choice but to love you.

Their wedding day was filled with the most effortless fun and inspiring love, so even though today is supposed my day off, I couldn’t wait to work on these frames. I hope Erika and Zach love them even half as much as I do. So here are just a few details we captured during portraits at Seattle’s Ballard Locks before their ceremony at Ray’s Boathouse. Check out her amazing handmade mantilla veil and his snazzy (and custom!) navy suit.
