SEATTLE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Aaron and Kendra met while grocery shopping during our lunch breaks, Aaron made his way over to the deli where she was lingering and “got in my way”. The story itself is charming and so was their love from that moment on. They both felt passionately about one another.

Kendra quickly learned Aaron lived life with a light heart, he was pure and good and that is how he saw the world. As she referenced in her vows “our love was deeper than I had ever experienced, it made me feel safe, and it was more intense”. They laughed hard, discussed our passions and hopes for the future, they danced often and weren’t afraid to expose that they were both a little quirky.

As Aaron mentioned in his vows, “you invited me into intimate corners of your heart and your most threatening insecurities and although it was difficult you knew that for our emotional intimacy to grow, each of us had to be willing to meet the others deepest needs and protect one anothers greatest vulnerabilities”.   

They happened to meet at a point in Kendras life that would transform everything she thought she knew and believed, which forced Aaron into a place where he would also have to dig deep in his heart and mold in ways he did not expect if he decided to pursue this vulnerable love they were cultivating. They met while Kendra was not only processing a divorce but memories that created an unhealthy cycle that she had been trapped in, but they chose to fight this battle together. Their first year was a mix of ups and downs. Their love was everything but simple, it has been complex but that also means it is authentic. They were vulnerability, accepting each other’s flaws and growing in grace. This was the first time she had been deeply known by another and confidently loved in all her complexities. Their love has taught them more about grace and forgiveness than they ever thought they needed to know. It has expanded their capacity to love and to prioritize the others needs with humility, knowing that if they could do so, they would be healthier and stronger as individuals and be able to hear God clearer.

Aaron and Kendra both longed to start a family together, they knew our engagement would be right around the corner and then SURPRISE- that little white stick came back positive and their family was going to start right then and there. They slowly spread the news, slightly hesitant because of some shame that they were experiencing, but this little bundle of joy was reshaping all they knew.

With baby Olson quickly growing they decided there is no time like the present so, in 3 weeks they put together an elopement and family celebration to follow. If it weren’t for all the loving hearts and hands surrounding them, there would have been no way to pull it off. They knew they wanted something small  and then Aaron said but “I want to host a party for everyone” so….they got to work contacting incredible vendors who sacrificed plans and rearranged schedules to accommodate their last minute elopement and reception. Kendra’s mom helped her pool ideas together and started creating a vision for the day. Friends didn’t hesitate to offer their beautiful decorating assistance, and her dad selflessly said “just let me know what you want and I will make it happen”. They decided a tent in her parents driveway would be a good option, so her family spent 3 weeks revamping the yard and sacrificing every afternoon and weekend to get everything organized and into shape. Kendra’s dad, a world-renowned chef, offered to cook our meal for everyone. He made his famous, salmon (that he caught in Alaska last summer). His friends manned the BBQ’s and hosted guests while they were in Seattle at Kingstreet Station saying I DO.

It takes every moment in 3 weeks to plan a wedding, including the time on the way to the reception (finalizing which songs they were going to dance to). They were greeted by their closest loved ones and they spent the rest of the evening celebrating their love.  SO MUCH LOVE FOR YOU THREE!!!
