I remember the first time I met Erin. We were getting dinner at a local restaurant called Next Door Gastro Pub (where I meet all my clients). Erin was sweet and was apparently a huge fan of my work. WE sat and talked about wedding plans, fishing, the Olympic Peninsula and photography for 2 hours! She was super excited at the fact that I was even available for her date! I seriously loved this girl already. It was easy and effortless helping her plan her wedding. Always wanting my opinion on all the wonderful details she was going to put together. I knew we were going to be great together for her wedding!
When the day was finally here (13 months went by fast!) I was floored! All the details were so perfectly done. The dress was stunning on her. The venue was a straight up dream with the river not even 100 ft away. She had decided to go to Rialto beach for their first look and bridal portraits. It was was a dream come true for me. The whole west coast of WA is very special to me. Being able to take them there after they moved from Texas was wonderful. The ceremony was bittersweet seeing has her father was no longer with her, but the love Erin and Nick felt from their families helped bridge the gap. It was nice to feel one of the family too.
As the day concluded, I felt this overwhelming joy that I was able to be there for such a sweet couple. Even now, nearly a year since the wedding, I’m still friends with them and Erin and Nick and have already started their family. Blessings to them and their little boy always. Thank you for letting me capture the start of your love story.
