10.08.16 /// Martha and Thad. This one was a special one. One of the first that come to mind when people ask me about my favorite weddings I've photographed. These two are so connected to one another; their love is so deep and pure and it's clear to anyone around them. I really don't think I've ever photographed two people who were so present during their ceremony - it truly seemed like they were the only two people on that island. Through my whole process working with them: our initial meeting, their engagement shoot... whenever I left my time with them I always said "omg they love each other SO much - that was so fun!" Their wedding was no different. Surrounded by a close group of local and out-of-town family and friends, these two said their vows on Orcas Island where Thad grew up. Family-style dinner where everyone sat together on long tables and served themselves of serving platters. Family and friends staying in big houses on the island together. It felt like a big family reunion and the best party of the year. The rain didn't stop them from wanting to adventure out to the lake and I am SO glad a little PNW drizzle (downpour) didn't ruin their day. Because it was perfect; and these are some of my favorite images I've ever created.
