I first met Anna and Allen at her sister Donna’s wedding, then again at their other sister Jenny’s wedding. To say I love this family is an understatement: 3 portrait sessions, 3 weddings, brunch in Seattle, drinks in Palm Springs, and a baby shoot later, we were fast friends. I am still working on the plan to be permanently adopted into their family, but I digress. Let’s look at their gorgeous springtime wedding at the foundry! Anna and Allen met at work. Oddly enough, their friends set them up via a lunch date, and it WORKED! Here we are, a few seasons later, and they’ve planned a gorgeous springtime wedding here in Seattle!

Always the pranksters, we left a little gift in Allen’s shoe. We won’t say what’s on the front of the card, but just know we’re ready at the drop of a hat to drop one on you. The light in this stairwell is to die for. It’s one of my favorite spots to shoot in Seattle with it’s modern architecture and 3 story high windows! How cute are these little flower girls? They couldn’t be more into uncle Allen! Why yes, that IS a camera-shaped flask the bride is holding. If we only knew where she got it… 🙂 Seattle’s famed cherry blossoms made a gorgeous backdrop for Anna. Was there ever a more idyllic spring wedding portrait?
Synonymous with springtime is a little bit of mud. Yes, mud on the Manolo’s… I love our clients’ senses of adventure!
Anna had a bowling ball groom’s cake made in Allen’s alma-mater. How cool is that! One final suprise for her groom: a late night hot dog cart!
