I could seriously go on and on about this wedding! It was so many wonderful things all rolled into one day – the serenity of a lovely garden tucked in the heart of downtown, getting ready photos at the sleek & modern Standard Hotel, portraits in a historic library, a beautiful Buddhist ceremony filled with tears of joy, opulent autumn florals, good food, lots of drinks, dancing galore, and that DRESS! On top of it all I got to work with the wonderful Everly Events which is always so much fun.

Hope you enjoy this fun urban wedding!

So Shani & Seth. They could be models no? They’re both ridiculously good looking and know just how to work it for the camera. But I’m going to let you in on a secret. They’re just as beautiful on the inside as the out. I KNOW RIGHT?? Seriously these two are some of the warmest, funniest, most laidback people I’ve met and I loved working with them every single step up to their wedding, from the second Shani walked into my studio, through their sweet emails, to their engagement session, and of course this perfect wedding day.

And oh how I love shooting at Cafe Pinot! No matter how many times I’m there I always marvel at how it’s such the perfectly tucked away garden in the midst of skyscraper-laden downtown. Hope you enjoy this peek into their day!

Oh, the internet is an interesting thing. It is of course the way many couples find me, but I’ve found recently that it’s played a big part in the way our relationship unfolds after as well. There is of course email, but like in the case of Susan and Ken, we’re facebook friends and follow each other’s photo adventures on Instagram as well. And throughout the months between our initial meeting and their wedding day, I got to follow their love for food, their playdates with their two amazing beagles, their awesome bachelor/bachelorette parties (think New York and Hawaii!), their wedding planning, their memories together.

Because as much as I wish I could grab coffee and hang out with my couples all the time, getting to know them this way – through updates on events, snippets of daily life, comments of encouragement – is maybe the next best thing. And by the time their wedding day rolled around, I really felt I had gotten to know Susan and Ken. That we had learned that much more about each other. That perhaps I could appreciate the details they thoughtfully incorporated into their day that much more. That when they saw each other for the first time, or said their tearful vows, or watched their slideshow, I found myself in tears along with them – that in two amazing, kind, and fun-loving people like this, I had found not clients, but friends.

Susan & Ken – I can’t express how much your support and trust in my work means to me, and how much I appreciate you letting me capture this day. It was perfect :)
