When a photographer is asked to photograph another photographers anything really, it comes with a bit of nerves and a whole lot of gratitude. When another photographer asks you to photograph their wedding, it comes with another dimension of nerves and even more gratitude.  Kara, the bride, was wonderful to work with! She was organized, knew exactly what she wanted, and provided ample information.  She was delighted about her wedding details and wanted them photographed as much as possible–highlighting all the special things she had picked for her amazing day with Ryan, her groom. Both were kind and calm and neither seemed to have a care in the world, except being deliriously in love and celebrating with their cherished family and guests. It was truly an honor to photograph such a monumental occasion in their lives and work with such talented and professional Pacific Northwest vendors. Thank you Kara + Ryan!!
