When I first met Annie and Logan, I could tell straight away that we’d get along just fine. These two are all about the very best things in life- food, travel, kindness, art, and dogs. Annie even sent me an extensive and personalised list of foodie spots all throughout Seattle, itemised by cuisine. Did we just become best friends?
Being wedding videographers themselves, we had so much to discuss about documenting love and sharing it with the world. This time they were on the other side of the lens to celebrate their marriage. We headed out to Franklin Falls just outside of Seattle to capture some sweet moments of gratitude for each other.
Rain began pounding the windshield as we drove through small towns towards the distant mountains lush with evergreens and encompassed by fog. We stopped at a drive-thru coffee shop inside of a tiny house that seemed more appropriate for small elves than a place of business. I sipped my cappuccino and proceeded to tell them how incredible the coffee in Australia is and made plans for them to come visit me in Adelaide where I would serve as their food, wine and coffee guide. So if you South Australians have any tips for them please leave it in the comments below!
We then hiked over slippery wooden planks along a looping path towards the soothing sound of crashing water. Rain beat down on us during the walk towards the falls, causing me to have slight heart palpitations thinking about the camera gear in my backpack, but that didn’t stop us from hunting for expensive mushrooms and laughing at bad jokes the whole way there. When we arrived at the waterfall it was crazy beautiful (as you can see) but things got 10000% more beautiful once these carefree souls happily rushed into the windy rain and freezing water and started to embrace one another in a romance fit for a Nicholas Sparks cover. The entire shoot took less than 20 minutes leaving them with years of passionate and adventurous memories to look back on. Which is what it’s all about, really.
