Seattle Wedding Anniversary Photographer – Ashley and Jace

Seattle Wedding Anniversary Photographer | Katie DeLorme

There are clients in this world who leave an impact on your heart. Their love, their kindness, their uncanny ability to be real from the get-go. That is Ashley and Jace. This darling couple traveled from Maine to Washington and then upward into Alaska for their one year adventure celebration. They wanted a shoot to capture the true essence of the PNW – a shoot to showcase the vast mountainous beauty – a shoot to mark this pivotal milestone in their journey together. We hiked up to insanely gorgeous spot and while Rattlesnake Ridge is wildly popular for its incredible views, I had never been. I had seen images taken from this spot and knew it was stunning but there is just no way to explain what you feel when you’re up there.  Ashley and Jace explored, gazed, walked, jumped, laughed, and took deep breaths together as they leapt into year 2 of marriage. I posted on instagram recently about how trust in your photographer is so crucial in being able to get images that are uniquely yours. Ashley and Jace were daring, trusting, and adventurous – their images are ones I am so proud of as a result. There are images which exhibit the symbolism of their love, there are images that highlight the subtleness of being a couple, there are images you can see the love and nurturing they have for one another, and there are images where you can feel the belly laughs they share. Ashley and Jace, I am so grateful to have been a part of your love story and can’t wait to come visit you in Maine. xo

Alexandria Virginia Elopement – Carlyle House

An Alexandria Virginia Elopement at the Carlyle House was conceptualized and executed in under 24 hours. A delightful email from Lianne popped into my inbox with the subject ‘civil union tomorrow?’. From that moment I knew she was going to be wonderful. I adore shooting elopements regardless; however, when they are paired with historic Old Town Alexandria, spontaneity, an amazing couple, AND floral design – well – bestill my heart. In preparing for this intimate affair, Lianne asked if I would put together the bouquets to which I happily obliged. Later that day, she sent me a text asking if I could also make a head piece inspired by Frida Kahlo which just made me jump for joy. I love when couples do it their way and Lianne and Fabio truly embraced that. They read their own vows, shared Buddhist readings, a personally written poem, and laughs with their family and friends at Hanks Oyster Bar after the ceremony. I don’t think I could’ve planned anything near this wonderful and am in awe of Lianne. I wish them both so much love in Rio Brazil as they embark on their wildly adventurous life together as photographer and film maker.

Anchorage Alaska Wedding Photographer | Merry and Gabe

There are no words to fully convey the beauty both in the emotions, of the day, and the landscape, which surrounded them. Together, they truly started a chapter unlike any other. There in Alaska – a February morning – their closest friends and family witnessed their exchange of personal vows on a frozen marsh. They read the poem he wrote for her when they became engaged – they thanked those who gathered from all around the country – they committed to their journey together as the sun rose. The frozen ground beneath, nor the frigid temperatures, distracted from them. It felt as though every moment of the day meant something. They got ready while the moon was still out – darkness and crisp chill in the air. They saw each other for the first time just as the sun was coming up and grew brighter and brighter throughout the ceremony – warming the air as well as everyone’s hearts. After recessing down the aisle hand in hand we were off to explore Alaska, chasing the morning light, climbing to points where the sun kissed their skin and the winds whipped across the rocks. Most of these moments were unscripted – just those two – in love – being together as husband and wife.  As I shot I felt as though I were shooting a dream – a painting – this couldn’t be real but alas in that 20 degree weather, propped up on a couple rocks as the waves crashed I was shooting these two, in their very own fairy tale. Traditionally, I do not share images from the whole wedding day but for these two I feel it is just so appropriate to demonstrate how you can do it your way, blending traditions and your own flare. You’ll notice they prepped for a laid-back open house style reception with mimosas, quiche, and various pastries. Their Aunt opened her beautiful home for their unique reception and it was quite simply put – perfectly them.

Annnnnd for all you film shooters out there – Merry’s getting ready images were taken before sunrise in a basement.

Adventures in Anchorage Alaska on Flat Top Mountain- Merry and Gabe

To have a camera in my hand atop an Alaskan mountain in mid-February was freeing. To be able to capture the wind, the chill, the snow, and above all – the love between Merry and Gabe was nothing short of a gift. All the worries I had regarding batteries dying, fingers numbing, and not being able to load film faded with each step we took further into the snowy oblivion. I was swept away by the care Gabe had for Merry – He was always checking to see if she was ok and if she was warm enough. He watched after her, not out of obligation but because he is a gentleman who has so much respect and love for her. Merry is gracious, strong, and just as loving. Her eyes as she looked at Gabe were filled with the same respect and warmth. Even when neither spoke a word there was a language they exchanged. Walking a few steps behind of or in front of them allowed me to watch how they love one another. They are adventurous spirits who want nothing more than to experience life together – to share in the mundane just as much as the excitement of every day. These images are them – not forced – not contrived – just them. More to come from their outdoor Alaskan wedding later this week.

Rustic Seattle Washington SODO Park Wedding

Rustic Seattle Washington SODO Park Wedding with elegant pink floral accents.

Guys, shooting with Ryan Flynn is quite simply spell bounding. His vision for the perfect composition is strategic, intentional, and approached with a calmness. Shooting this SODO Park wedding with him was a privledge and just way too easy. The day began in Sammamish, on the lake – her parent’s estate was insanely beautiful and was the perfect backdrop for getting ready and the most decedent ceremony and reception at Sodo Park.
