Sometimes when you meet a couple you feel like instent best friends. Well, Andrew & Janae are those kind of people! They have the most joyful spirit and seriously are constantly smiling... which makes you always happy! Janae's Aunt & Uncle used to be wedding photographers in the 80's/ 90's & were blessing A + J with shooting their wedding. I LOVE the intimate personal touch having friends/ family shooting a wedding can add. Whenever I'm asked to photograph a friend/ family event I always consider it a true honor. PLUS it's so rad to spend all day with people you love. Anyway, I jumped into this wedding in a second shooter roll and even though I didn't know A + J very well, it was such a blessing to be a part of such a joyful event! I mean look at their faces throughout the photos... seriously always smiling :)
For pre-wedding photos we headed to the wonderful Greenlake in North Seattle. The forecast called for rain, but that didn't ruin any of our photo time! It was perfect and the light was so bright. The ceremony + reception was at the always beautiful Bethany Community Church. The windows in the lobby are always a favorite!
A + J Congratulations & Enjoy!
