Every bride wants to feel like Cinderella on her wedding day. This wedding was as close to the perfect fairytale experience as you can get in real life. I started off the day by heading south of Seattle to the Courtyard Marriott hotel where Max and Zhanna were in their respective suites preparing in their own ways for their big day. First, I visited Max and his best friends where I got to witness firsthand the excitement surrounding this day from everyone involved. Max dawned on his chic grey suit and spent some time with his closest friends sharing stories from the years leading up to this momentous day.
Engagements always bring me so much joy. It’s always clear to see how happy and excited couples are to take the next step in building their lives together. On a beautiful day in June, I met Max and Zhanna at Discovery Park to capture their new love and their first photos together as an engaged couple. I could tell even before the shoot that this couple was willing to do anything to get the shot. I love when clients are willing to take risks as I love when a new idea or a spontaneous pose results in the most unique photo of the day.
It was a beautiful day at the Olson Mansion in Maple Valley and it was made even better with Amanda and Vincent!
Amanda and her bridesmaids were getting ready in the upper part of the Olson Mansion and it was all love. Surrounded by her closest friends and family for this special day in her life. It was extraordinary to see her ladies supporting her and having a jovial time making each other laugh in the lavish Olson Mansion bridal suite and truly just soaking in this magical experience.
