Paul and Ryan's Wedding

Weddings are emotional events for everyone involved, and as a photographer, it is a gift to be invited to witness and participate in such a special occasion. When Paul and Ryan asked me to capture their wedding, I was both humbled and excited. The two of them dramatically shaped my Willamette experience and though we didn't see as much of each other as I would have liked (mostly due to my schedule) once they moved to Seattle, they continued to be a source of inspiration for me as friends. 

Their wedding was a truly beautiful celebration of love, with friends and families coming together to witness something that has only recently become possible in the state of Washington. I felt so blessed to be able to spend the whole day with them and am excited to share a brief glimpse of part of what I experienced. As Ryan's brother Alex put so eloquently in his song, "Remix to Tradition", - it's all the same love.
