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! 


Daily Shot of Inspiration || Thursday, June 24th || St Josephs Church Seattle, WA

Sometimes it's the little things that best tell the story of a Wedding Day.  During the readings Michelle and Anthony were quietly enjoying the moment, and I can feel the joy and love flowing between them when I look at the image of them together.  It makes me smile to know that their children and grandchildren will get to experience that same moment through the photographs we created, and it reminds me of how blessed we are as photographers to create something so meaningful. 


Daily Shot of Inspiration || Wednesday, June 23rd || Occasions Wedding with Janel Schlit

There are so many great photographs from Michelle and Anthony's recent wedding that I had a hard time choosing just a few to share.  This image is one of my favorites - how clever was Ken to get the Space Needle in the middle of the sculpture?  He never ceases to surprise me!


Daily Shot of Inspiration || Thursday, June 17th || Columbia Tower Club Wedding

Michelle and Anthony's wedding reception at The Columbia Tower Club was beautiful, and Janel from Occasions helped them pull together this the timeless black elements with striking color to create a look that was both summer and sophisticated.  I particularly liked the pattern they incorporated into their menu detailing - fabulous!
