sometimes you meet someone and you realize you basically had the same path in life but never actually crossed paths until years later and you wonder how life happens as it does, with all of its twists and turns.
dawn and i both graduated from james madison university in virginia. we both attended the same post-graduate fellowship program in maryland (trinity forum academy, which is the smallest of worlds), and then we both moved to queen anne across the country in seattle and ended up living just a few blocks from each other. when she contacted me last year, she had found these facts out and knew that we had to come together for her wedding. i was more than thrilled to be the photographer for her and edward’s day – without any idea of how breathtaking it would be until the moment i arrived to her parent’s incredible home on bainbridge island.
their wedding took place on the most unbelievable (and i truly mean unbelievable) property overlooking all of the puget sound and at the most stunning town and countryesque home you ever did see. dawn and edward absolutely did me a favor by letting me photograph their day. everywhere i turned to point my camera, there was “detail disneyland” (as us photographers like to call it). on top of it all, dawn and edward’s energy & love for each other was electric that day, making the entire day vibrant with emotion, completely saturated with joy.
i am still dumbfounded by life and speechless about the fact that i got to photograph their wonderful day. what a pleasure and marvelous gift! congratulations to my dears, dawn & edward!
