Volunteer Park

Intimate Elopement at Volunteer Park Conservatory // Agnes & Rob

// The more I shoot weddings, the more I want them to be small, off the beaten path, driven by sentimentality.

When the guest list is small enough to fit in my bedroom I get really excited. It’s not to say that large weddings aren’t as special. There is just something really incredible about there only being 10 faces in a room, on the beach, or in this case, a conservatory in north Capital Hill.

Agnes and I met when I first moved here to Seattle at a networking event and we connected right away. She taught me about SEO (ugh - bless you Agnes) and I made her laugh. We didn’t see each other for months after that (maybe even a year?) and then one day I got an email from her, a fellow photographer herself, that she wanted me to shoot her elopement in late summer.

UMMMM What? OK. You got it girl. And so, one beautiful afternoon (after stressing out in traffic because South Lake Union is seriously trying to be the end to us all), I captured her and Rob saying their vows to each other in front of their close family and friends. It was quiet, yet full of laughter, it was tender, it was everything.

Agnes and Rob // Married at Volunteer Park Conservatory. Enjoy :)

Melissa & Nic // Seattle Engagement Photographer

Melissa and Nic are getting married in the fall next year so it made perfect sense to shoot their engagement session amongst the trees. They suggested Volunteer Park as the trees there in the fall were beautiful.  As the Uber pulled up, I rolled down my window and stared in awe.  I had been waiting so long for fall and it was more than I could have imagined.
