This was, quite possibly, the most perfect wedding day! It was gorgeous and sunny–not too hot, not too cold, and ended with a good old-fashioned summer rain shower after the dancing started. The perfect Washington day!
Anne and Tom tied the knot at Hidden Meadows in Snohomish. I had the wonderful Sarah Alston as my right-hand photographer. She literally saved the day as my main camera gear went belly-up, not five minutes before the wedding ceremony started. She took charge, while I grabbed my back-up equipment (thank heavens I always carry back-ups of everything, ready to go at a moment’s notice). Not only that, but she had a great angle for getting the amazing shots of the dancing later in the evening. I love her style and working with her is a real pleasure.
Anne and Tom were sooooo easy to pose; they did everything we suggested, and we even talked them into taking shots on the train tracks. Score! Not only that but they had the best “first dance” I’ve ever seen – a full-on tango, which was like watching “Dancing With the Stars” live! They’d practiced, in secret, for quite a while, and had told no one of their first dance ensemble beforehand. It was outstanding! Anne’s gown was incredible, and Tom looked absolutely dapper himself. Just an all-around fabulous and beautiful couple. We were honored to share their day with them. 🙂
All in all, it was a fabulous wedding (despite the gear failure!) and here are some highlights of our shots. Again, special thanks to Sarah Alston for her expertise!
