Carmen and Joe met in Switzerland while they were both studying abroad from the same school in Washington.
She’s now in the US Navy stationed in Japan.
He works for an international hotel company and is on the road hundreds of days out of the year.
Travel isn’t just for fun – it’s a way of life for these two.
For that reason, I never got to meet them until I photographed their wedding on the last weekend of December. However, I did get to spend the entire next day with them alone, exploring the beauty of Seattle and the forests in Northern Washington, helping Carmen get back into her wedding dress in a campground bathroom, chasing sunlight and snow and mist.
Their wedding was beautiful and special and I’ll hopefully share it at some other point if I get the chance. But this day-after session was perfectly THEM. Wandering and playing and exploring. So I’m posting it first.
Congratulations you two!
Blair and Scott got married a month ago at Woodard Creek Landing in Skamania, Washington in the Columbia River Gorge.
It was epic.
Blair put so much hard work into her day. I’m pretty sure almost all of the decorations were DIY projects she took on. She even made her own bouquets. The woman is a stylish genius, and not to mention gorgeous. Being at her wedding was like looking at a pinterest board of wedding perfection. It was that cute.
But it was more than just cute.
It was relaxed and fun. And it was a party! Before the ceremony started, I found the bride, groom and wedding party playing quarters. Just hanging out. No big deal. And then 10 minutes later, “Hey let’s get married!”
They had personalized beer that was aptly named “Blair’s a *#?$?!”
The night ended with keg stands.
Everyone had an absolute blast. My favorite kind of wedding. Fun and pretty. No stress. Just happy.
Congrats Blair and Scott! I can tell you two are perfect for each other. You just fit.
