Pauline & Scott Get Married!

It is really nice when a wedding comes out better than you could have planned.  Working with Pauline and Scott was terrific starting with our first meeting. I could tell that it was going to be a great event. They held their wedding at The Golf Club at Newcastle, which is one of my favorite venues in the Seattle area. Sometimes in July the weather can start getting pretty hot, but there were enough clouds spread around to keep things comfortable. A great looking couple who are wonderful to work with, a great day with beautiful light and a magnificent location meant I just needed to stay out of the way of the good pictures.  Another element working in my favor  were the other great vendors.  Melissa Parker of Amazing Events was the wedding coordinator, and she is terrific. Everything went according to plan and she was a delight. Christiane Zweifler of Flora Nova did an amazing job with the flowers, the bouquet was stunning, great colors and contrast. The other vendor who I have known for a long time and who is a real professional is DJ Greg Lowder of Affairs to Remember. He is one of the top DJs in the area, and I really enjoy working with him. And a big thank you to Gayle O’Donnell of All About Weddings who pointed Pauline and Scott in our direction. Having Red Box  partner Andy Rogers along doing video work as well as holding a large soft box in the face of  some occasional strong breezes, I couldn’t have asked for more. Here are some of the images, along with some of the behind the scenes work by Andy.

  1. Absolutely beautiful job, Scott. You thanked me for the referral, but the real thanks here go to you because you made me look good. 🙂 Of course I had every confidence you would which is why I referred you – have to be very careful with family weddings, and I knew you’d take very good care of them.

  2. Absolutely amazing!!! Hands down you are the best out there! Pauline

    As the mother of the groom, I cannot tell you how thrilled I am with ALL of the photos. I keep looking at them and thinking, “Was I really there?” Thank you so much for planting those wonderful memories in concrete.
