Have I mentioned how much I love these short and sweet wedding gigs? They don’t have to be elopements, and they don’t have to actually be short weddings… to the couple at least. I’m just hired for a short time, between 3-5 hours, which is usually enough for me to capture anything that is important for the couple. What people want photographed can vary, but it’s always a celebration of love no matter what.
In Liah and Mark’s case, they didn’t want a big deal made out of their wedding ceremony. They invited a small group of friends and family to attend their Seattle Municipal Courthouse wedding and then they had a party with more people afterwards. We took a little break between the courthouse wedding ceremony and the Queen City Yacht Club reception to do private photos at the Seattle Arboretum. It was a fun night for everyone!
I’ve been doing highlights lately for some of these shorter weddings because they don’t always include the full spectrum of typical wedding events. So instead of leaving you wondering what’s missing form the event, just enjoy the highlights!
