Erik and Almeera brought us up to their Roche Harbor wedding all the way up in the San Juan Islands! Roadtrip, ferry, and a two-night no-kids getaway.
We met these two over video chat (friends of Beth & Nick from last year), & it was probably one of our favorite consultations yet. We had such a great time together, their chemistry was exactly what we love to get to photograph, and even though we knew our baby-on-the-way was going to be pretty tiny still, we so hoped we’d get to do their wedding together. Peter got to photograph their engagement pictures in Seattle, and they booked us non-negotiably as a team for their wedding and we made it work!
Our world-class friends took care of our two boys, and we got to drive up for a crazy two-day trip. One of the things we legitimately miss most about the pre-baby days are roadtrips with hours and hours of talking in the car—we always think we’ll listen to an audiobook but we get TOO HYPED about all the nerdy stuff. As much as we’ve still roadtripped with our guys, the massive philosophical/business/food/theological/podcast re-hashing conversations are a little hampered by various hollering from the backseat.
Erik & Almeera were ceaselessly gracious and kind and amazing, with families that loved them & each other. We had a blast getting to spend the day with them, and had our on fair share of red wine & even squeezed in some dancing at the end of the night! (Which Almeera sneakily photographed).
