Pike Place & Waterfront Engagement | Ariel & Geo | Seattle, WA

This sweet couple met while serving in the United States Air Force, so it seemed fitting to post their engagement session on Veteran’s Day! Ariel grew up in Issaquah, and she & Geo recently relocated to the area, so she thought it would be fun to visit the brick lined streets and alleys around Pike Place Market & Post Alley, as well as the Seattle waterfront for their engagement session. We had so much fun wandering the historic district with them, and loved capturing their budding love.

We hope you love their photos, and a huge Happy Veterans’ Day to Ariel, Geo, and to all who have served and continue to serve our country so selflessly. We appreciate you more than words can express.

Intimate Canlis Wedding | Hanh & Quang | Seattle, WA

Every once in a while, we are invited to capture a wedding celebration that is small and intimate – a beautiful gathering of many of the people the couple holds nearest and dearest to their heart. As photographers and fellow human beings, these weddings are some of our favorites, and Hahn & Quang’s day was no exception. It was a quintessential Seattle day – from the getting ready portraits at the Fairmont Olympic to the gray skies over the Great Wheel down by the waterfront, to the warm and romantic ceremony and reception at the place that put themselves on the map as Seattle’s special occasions restaurant, Canlis. The bride and groom were elegant, the flowers and decor timeless, and the food absolutely delicious. We hope you enjoy this glimpse into their day – we certainly loved capturing their special celebration. ~The Popes

DeLille Cellars Wedding | Kelsey & Barrett | Woodinville, WA

Kelsey & Barrett’s wedding at DeLille Cellars was picture perfect in every way. It was a gorgeous northwest July day, Kelsey was the MOST stunning bride, every detail was carefully chosen and beautifully executed (just check out their dessert buffet by The Sweetside!), and their families were absolutely wonderful to work with! We loved capturing their day and since Kelsey planned everything on her own, we thought it’d be fun for you to hear about their day directly from her! :)

“Designing the overall look for the wedding was an absolute blast for me. As soon as Barrett proposed I knew right away the style I wanted for the wedding, but it all started coming into place with some help from my mom.  I would describe our wedding as “Casual Chic,” elegant details, but an atmosphere that is fun and energetic (DeLille Cellars was the perfect venue for this, so magical!). My main wish was for all of our friends and family to have a great time and enjoy themselves.

If you ask anyone that knows me well three things décor wise my wedding would have to have, they would say black and white, sparkle and bows. This was basically the “theme” we went with. Our wedding had black and white striped ribbons, silver rhinestones, and a color pop of tiffany blue throughout. A few of my favorite details included the silver glitter “best day ever sign,” and the tiffany blue napkins tied in a bow with rhinestone napkin rings that my entire family helped me assemble the day before the wedding

Every moment of our day was absolutely perfect from getting hair and makeup done with my girls, to the sparkler exit into our getaway Bentley! My favorite part of the day was seeing Barrett’s smiling face as I came down the aisle and seeing my Dad with tears in his eyes as he held my hand and walked with me down the aisle. There was so much laughter, joy, and love and so many memories made and captured on this day and I look forward to spending the rest of my life side by side my best friend!”

Thanks to the dream team who helped make Kelsey & Barrett’s day the Best Day Ever! We loved working with every single one of you. :)
