Daily Shot of Inspiration | A Wedding Adventure in Green Lake Park

Green Lake Park Wedding Photography

This was our first wedding in Green Lake, and I was blown away by how beautiful it was.  It has an old-style European feeling, and the tree-lined Rue de Green Lake was the perfect touch of elegance.

Daily Shot of Inspiration | Two Lovebirds Get Married

Vintage Bird Cage Wedding Card Holder at The Great Hall at Greenlake

Two things I love: birds and the color blue.  Christina and Will combined them perfectly with dozens of personalized touches, including handmade wooden lovebirds crafted by Will himself.  I was so impressed with his handiwork!

I love Paris in the Springtime ...

Every year Ken and I try to schedule at least one week of international photography, giving us a chance to stretch our creative wings in a new environment.  This year Ken decided to stay in Seattle to work on some video projects, but I get to traipse to Paris, France!  I haven't visited France since the days of my childhood family vacations, so I am giddy with excitedment.

This photoshoot is a little different from previous years because it will be focused on our new Couture Portrait line that will be launched in the next few months.  I'm also working on a fine art project that will be a series of mixed-media oil paint, encaustic wax, and giclee photographic work, which will be evolving over the Summer.  I can't wait to share my experiences with you when I return. :)

Bellingham Wedding by Azzura Photography of Seattle

It's candid moments like this one that are often our favorites.  I love the look on Annaliese's face as she and Eric walked the streets of Bellingham.

Happy Easter!

Nothing says classic like the old-school British phonebooths ... I wish we had more of them in Seattle!

I smile every time I see this photograph - the look of exuberance on Julia's face is simply fabulous.

I love when our weddings decide to venture out into the rain (and have a blast doing it!)


Daily Shot of Inspiration | A Wedding at the Renovated W Hotel Seattle

Newly Renovated W Hotel Seattle Wedding by Azzura Photography

We were so excited to photograph the very first wedding in the W Hotel Seattle's newly renovated space!  They finished the upgrades just in time for the event, and the wedding was gorgeous.  I have quite a few images to share from this wedding, and I am hoping it will get published in Seattle Metropolitan Bride & Groom.  Fingers crossed! 


Momoko + David = Classic Style

Momoko and David travelled all the way from New York for their destination wedding here in Seattle, and it was worth every frequent-flyer mile that was used!  From Momoko's Valentino shoes to the delectible four-course meal, their wedding was stunning in every way.  I fell in love with so many of their images that I had to put together a little slideshow to share them all - enjoy!  :)

Salish Lodge Winter Wedding at Snoqualmie Falls

Winter in Seattle might be brisk and wet, but it is still the most beautiful state ever ... I love the subtle pattern of the leaves in compliment to the whimsical design of the bouquet.
