Wedding Photography by Betty Elaine Blog » Northwest Wedding Photographer serving the Seattle, Washington area. Travel available to other cities for local, national, and international wedding photography.

This was the most exciting year for Photography by Betty Elaine. At the beginning of 2014 I moved to Seattle, and then I blinked, and it’s now 2015. I was honestly a little nervous to move. There was so much uncertainty for transitioning my work to be here. But I was inspired to work hard at planting new roots here as a Photographer in the Seattle area.

After 19 flights this year (yikes!), photographing weddings from the west coast to the east coast and in-between, I’m grateful that the majority of my weddings will be within the Seattle area in 2015. With the exception of a month in Europe in July!

It has been a beautiful year.

14-Seattle-Wedding-Styled-Shoot-Sodo-Park-BHLDN-Photography-by-Betty-Elainepinimage

I am so thrilled to share this beautiful styled shoot with you. It was so fun working with these incredible Seattle wedding vendors.

We wanted to create wedding inspiration with a botanical earthy look but styled with modern elegance. Choosing Sodo Park as our venue gave us a urban loft space with lots of natural light, and reclaimed lighting lit up the space as we transition to early winter evenings. Kaleb Norman James Design chose the venue’s original multi paned windows set as the back drop behind a gorgeous 16’ raw edge wooden table styled with geometric vases, guided chargers and eucalyptus garland runner. By mixing geometric patterns with soft colors a elegant and modern design was created.

Our bride was styled with romantic front swept braided hair, and the gowns chosen mirrored the inspiration of the shoot. Wearing BHLDN’s Emma Gown in Blush by Theia Bridal the soft pale gradient with organic detailing was highlighted in this dynamic setting. To create a more elegant look later in the evening, our bride wore BHLDN’s Francine Gown from WTOO by Watters, and her hair was swept into whimsical fishtail low nape bun.

This past weekend I had the pleasure of photographing Meredith & Kevin, and their adorable pup Lemon!!! Meredith is a fantastic photographer, and I was so excited when she suggested we do a photo swap at Ballard’s Golden Gardens Park. It was a great excuse to let our pups hang out (puppy love!), and take some gorgeous photos during sunset. I think we can say it is winter now, because it was freezing wind chill once we got to the beach. But it was so worth it, and we quickly ran off to grab irish coffee and other warm drinks as our reward. And to heat up my numb shutter clicking fingers. Aren’t they just lovely?!

Seattle-Wedding-Photography-by-Betty-Elainepinimage

 

Katie & Sean’s wedding day was absolutely gorgeous. It was also the last wedding this year that I had to travel out of Seattle to photograph. This midwest autumn wedding was filled with elegant and classic details. Before their reception at The Missouri History Museum, we took pictures in front of their first home in Lafayette Square, and then headed to Forest Park before the sunset.

We have had a beautiful October here in the Northwest. But more recently we’ve have had quite a few rainy days. I can’t begin to tell you how thankful I am that we had sunny autumn evening for Rowena & Virgilio’s engagement session! Their proposal took place at a lighthouse so it was only fitting that their photography took place at Discovery Park’s Lighthouse, in Seattle Washington. It was so much fun spending time with this couple and I cannot wait to photograph their wedding day!
