Last month I had the huge honor of getting to photograph one of my favorite humans' wedding. Amy is a fellow photographer, artist, and all around amazing human, and she married an equally awesome fellow. Eric contacted me a couple years ago to photograph their surprise engagement, which was so fun! It's always exciting when you get to be present at your friend's proposal (and know about it before them! Secret secret!). Amy is a gorgeous person and I loved getting to spend the day with her on her most special of days.
This was my first wedding as a mom, and I was glad it was friend's wedding because my husband and my tiny human got to come to the wedding too! It was so much fun getting to go back to Tacoma and visit our favorite people and places. I loved getting to meet Amy and Eric's families, it's so cool to meet the people who raised your favorite friends.
Since their wedding was in February in Tacoma we were prepared for rain, but it ended up being a gorgeous sunny day! Still, we had planned on doing their first look and portraits in the WW Seymour Conservatory in Wright Park, which was perfect because I'd been wanting to shoot wedding portraits there for ages! It's a tiny little conservatory, but the lush plants (and warm temperature-- compared to outside! brr!) made for the most beautiful backdrop for their first look and portraits.
Amy and Eric, congrats you crazy kids! I'm so thrilled I got to hang out with you guys all day and capture the first day of your marriage!
