Wedding aftershoots are so much fun! The wedding is over and the stress of the wedding day schedule is no more, which means that our couples are able to simply relax and have a fun fashion-inspired photo shoot together.
Hannah & Josh got married over a year ago at a beautiful outdoor wedding venue in Skagit county, so for their aftershoot they wanted to capture some sights in downtown Seattle that they weren’t able to visit on their wedding day. Even on a bitter cold day like we had at their shoot, I can’t think of a better way to spend an afternoon than by getting some quality time with a fun couple who is very much in love…
This driveway (above) and the stairwell (below) near the new Four Seasons downtown was just dying to be in some of our photographs. I especially love the cable lines and the machinery in the background. Josh isn’t a big fan of heights, but I’m sure he’ll be glad that he braved this stairwell with his beautiful bride.
This is my favorite time of day to shoot with off camera lighting. After the sun has gone down, I can shoot with my flash on it’s lowest setting, while easily getting the glow of the street lights, the dimming sky, and a shallow depth of field.
This was such a fun moment! We had already packed up the car to head home when we saw this steam coming out of the manhole, backlit by the headlights of the oncoming traffic. It was absolutely freezing outside, but Hannah was still excited to get out for one more shot!
