A couples of months back, my friend Nicole introduced me to the most amazing ambient restaurant in Seattle, "Damn the weather."  Fun name right?  It's rather small interior makes room for around 10 tables, all situated against an exposed brick wall that makes one feel they are in a secret location.  No secret anymore!  This place has become the prime dinner spot or the place to grab a yummy cocktail!  Point of the story?  Well, overtime I got to know one of the servers, Landon.  After snippets of conversations, we both planned to do a photo shoot for him to begin building his model portfolio.  I was so excited to work with him for his very first photo shoot!  Here are the gems.

Jessica & Sean

Love, the only thing you take with you when you die.

Love, the powerful force that brings two strangers together to make magic.

Love, what happened to these two beautiful souls four weeks ago on Orcas Island.

Love, what I was honored to capture.

Opposites do attract.  I learned this after meeting for an initial wedding consult with Sean and Jessica.  I always love to hear the stories of how two people meet and how they have learned to weather the storms of relationship.  These two met in elementary school!  Wow!  Stories like this still blow me away, how two people circle back around after years and years.  There is something steady and disarming about Sean's presence.  They really are a perfect fit.  She is perky and radiant and he is grounding and understanding.

I couldn't have been more thrilled that they chose Orcas Island for their wedding destination. It is one of the most beautiful and tranquil places on this earth.  It made for such a relaxed day that allowed these two to be in every moment, to be present.  Thank you Sean and Jessica for inviting me to photograph the beautiful you.
