Canvases from Erica + Eric’s Rock n’ Roll Wedding

Today I wanted to share a few photos of the 16×24 canvases Eric and Erica ordered from their wedding photographs. Ironically, I received these canvases in the mail the day after I sent off all of our camera gear to Canon Professional Services for a yearly check, so I had to take pictures of them with my little PowerShot Elph. That thing just really can’t compete with the big dSLRs! So, excuse the quality of these photographs. I seriously loved on these canvases though… they were just gorgeous, high-quality, and perfectly assembled. Have a look!

Interlaken Park and Lake Washington Wedding | Kadie + Doug

Seattle wedding photography at Interlaken Park and Lake Washington by Persimmon Images Photographers. Black and white fine art wedding images.

Kadie and Doug wowwed us with their sweet, stylish, and budget-savvy wedding last September. Their wedding wasn’t just a coming together of loved ones, or the creation of a new family, it was also a homecoming of sorts for Doug, who had been away in California and then Oregon on residency most of the summer. When we took their engagement photographs at Cafe Vida, Molly Moon’s, and Gas Works Park it was the day before Doug returned to California for three months! In fact, it was only just after the wedding that he was able to return to Seattle to be close to his new wife. So this lovely, smile-filled day was very special for everyone.

While Doug got dressed at his family home, Kadie got ready at a really amazing rental house in West Seattle where her out-of-town family was staying. They then met at Interlaken Park, just across the street from Volunteer Park, where they had a very intimate friends-and-family-only wedding ceremony with a beautiful view of Lake Washington. One of their friends officiated while two stood by as Maid of Honor and Best Man and still another played beautiful, tearful ceremony music on the violin. Their Boston terrier, Bailey, watched with his “grandparents” as parents tied the knot.

We celebrated the gorgeous, Indian Summer day with wedding portraits at Gas Works Park on the Lake Union waterfront. The Seattle skyline from Kite Hill was pristine and colorful kites fluttered overhead as Kadie and Doug took a moment to soak up the sunshine and their newlywed status.

Their beachside reception was on the patio of a clubhouse at a private Lake Washington residence, where guests enjoyed wood-fired pizza and salads provided by Inferno Catering, delicious cake and cupcakes, and even the Molly Moon’s ice cream truck! It was the perfect way to spend a long, summer evening watching the sun set over the water. Congratulations again, Kadie and Doug!

Big Island + Big Nature = Hawaiian Dream

It’s my goal to start posting more personal and travel photography on our blog along with images from recent sessions. So here are some images of the lovely scenery during our trip to Hawaii last July to go along with the recent posts from the KICKASS wedding we were there to photograph.

I’ll start with the beautiful Hawaii High Country, add some snapshots of the Mauna Lani Bay grounds and nearby coastline, and finally, leave you with photos from our epic 12-hour adventure circumnavigating the island in our Mustang convertibles all the way down one side, to Akaka Falls and Volcanoes National Park (where there sadly was no active lava to see) and back up the other side! Enjoy!

We even had the camera turned on us by Christen at Akaka falls, where she snapped this photo of Justin and I enjoying the cool spray. Thanks, Christen, you’re the pro now!
