I’m super proud of this Palace Ballroom wedding for very nerdy reasons. In short, I kinda NAILED the lighting. This was actually why Kate and Matt hired me, because Palace Ballroom is not the brightest of spaces (it’s chic modern moody).
Not one to shy away from dark, cave-like spaces, I really love a good lighting challenge where the walls and ceilings are pitch black and windows are few or it’s dark out so there’s not much you can use in the way of natural lighting.
Also, I don’t get to do very many urban weddings in downtown Seattle, so when I do, it’s a rare treat! It’s always a good challenge to shoot in the city where there are crowds, and of course, rain. LOTS of rain. What can I say? After ten years, I say throw anything at me and I’ll make it look good!
Thanks so much for putting your trust in my studio, Kate and Matt. And thanks Natalie of Ginger Bee Events for making everything run smoothly!
Getting ready and First Look was at Hotel Andra. Really nice little place right in the middle of downtown and walking distance to Palace Ballroom.
Girl has got some serious guns!
So Kate’s bouquet is made of artificial flowers! She got it from someone at Etsy (I think). I’ll have to ask.
We decided to walk across the road for some drinks right after the ceremony. I think everyone should do that going forward, don’t you?
This lady, Kate’s aunt, and I can be besties. She had such a spirit and energy about her, vibrant and joyful. She whooped and danced throughout the wedding and made everyone get on the dance floor with her enthusiasm!
This little guy, Kate’s nephew, stole the show and everyone’s heart with it!
