David and Cynden came to me last year to book their wedding. We all sat there and chatted for a few minutes when out of the blue, David asked me if I used to drive a red Celica (I did!) turns out we knew each other from YEARS back. I didn’t recognize him at first, but as soon as he said his full name it took me way back. We had both hung out with the same group of friends for a period of time…..lots of fun times! Oh the crazy things I did as a teenager….wow! When I got around to photographing their wedding last weekend I was not surprised at all to see a few familiar faces in the crowd.
Their wedding was at the Lewis River Golf Course in Woodland – one of my all time favorite places to work. The venue is stunningly beautiful, set right on the bank of the Lewis River and surrounded by gorgeous greenery. My second shooter, Nate, did an amazing job working with me and I was so happy to have him there. Thanks Nate! And thank you David and Cynden for having me as your photographer! It was a pleasure.
We grabbed a few detail shots before Cynden got ready:
Then we headed outside to let David catch his first glimpse of his new bride:
Then we grabbed some of the two of them alone:
Then it was on to formals with everyone in the party:
Since we were on a golf course it was only fitting that we get a shot on the course:
Then it was time for the ceremony:
Then it was on to the reception:
Last but not least, my favorite shot of the day:
