I got to spend the calmest, glassiest evening on the water photographing Krischel and Ian's engagement session on a sailboat around Seattle. Somehow I managed to not drop any cameras in the water, or fall overboard myself (which would've surprised exactly no one, given my clumsiness when shooting.) Love when couples tie their sessions into their lives, and what they love to do, it makes the whole thing so much more personal.
What a day. A farm, horses, sun, rain, a double rainbow, and a Norwegian wedding cake. And, of course, this couple. Just the sweetest. There was such a huge amount of love and effort and joy that went into this day.
I've been blessed. Lucky. Either, or both, perhaps. Point being, I get to go make photos for amazingly kind, genuine people like Claire and Ted. And sometimes those kind people happen to also brew fantastic beer, get married at Spring Creek Ranch in Winthrop, WA in the Methow Valley, one of my favorite spots in the state. So, yeah, lucky.

We left sunny Seattle, bound for the Cascade mountains a little bit outside of the city. We got out of the car when we arrived, and stepped out into pouring rain. Like, bucketing. Little rivers of rain running through your soaked clothes and off your fingertips. I can't say how grateful I am for couples who are up to climb and adventure around and make some awesome images no matter what. Love having that kind of trust and collaboration with people.
