If you’ve ever spent some time talking to me, you know I’m a bit of a perfectionist. I strive for perfection in most everything I do, knowing I will never truly achieve it. Take this personality trait, throw in my first destination wedding, and the fact that the bride is an old friend, and you’ve got a recipe for some amazing photos!
Arleen & Jason’s wedding was fantastic! Their ceremony and reception were held on the MV Skansonia, a historic moored ferry boat sitting at the top of Lake Union in Seattle, Washington. Most people hear “Seattle” and think rain, but it’s not as bad as you might think. For Arleen & Jason’s wedding it was sunny with blue skies, not even a fluffy cloud in sight. We starting photographing with Arleen getting ready at their apartment in the Queen Anne neighborhood. Queen Anne is filled with historic homes, and Arleen and Jason’s apartment building is no exception. Great place to get a ton of detail shots of all of Arleen’s jewelry and her two dresses for the day. We also set up their first look in the lobby and took some creative shots here and at Gas Works Park, just around the corner from Skansonia.

It was a great weekend filled with friends and family. I love getting to work with great couples and truly enjoy traveling to do so. Congratulations Arleen & Jason!
