Yuka and Alan: Intimate Seattle Wedding
I was honored to be a guest at the wedding of Yuka and Alan last week at Parson’s Garden and Olive 8. It’s not often that I force myself NOT to take so many photos, but Yuka had asked me to enjoy myself, so I tried my best for their sake 🙂 I think I did OK – meaning that at least, for the ceremony, I took about 5 pictures all together!
I tried to focus on taking candids, things the photographer might not shoot or might not have time to shoot. I was very glad to have my new EOS M, a smaller, agile camera with a great APS-C sensor and 35mm f/2 equivalent lens. I had so much fun cruising around with it and shooting some B&W’s from all different angles, closes ups, etc. I think they came out great and really express how the wedding party was – a ton of fun with some really close friends and family. Alan and Yuka’s friends are a hoot! It’s been a while since I had so much fun getting to meet a bunch of complete strangers! What lovely, amazing people – the couple is surely blessed with wonderful friends!
I plan on keeping the writing to a minimum and letting the pictures do the talking. The weather was perfect – summer in Seattle nearly always is!; the guests came from all over the world; there was laughter, tears, hugs, kisses; and in the end two wonderful people were able to celebrate their special day and start on the next leg of life’s journey.
