Johnna and Horacio // An Elopement in the City // Seattle

Sometimes you come across a couple because you met through mutual friends or work colleges and sometimes you meet because they looked for you.  They sought you out, saw what you were about and chose you to photograph one of the most important days of their lives.  In fact, when I really think about it, Johnna, Horacio and I chose each other.  

Documenting what I do is not just a “Hi, are you available on ___ day?  Yes?  Great. Let’s do this,” kind of thing.  It involves trust and chemistry.  The relationship that unfolds based on a great connection is everything and quite frankly, I couldn’t have it any other way.  I want us to laugh, I want us to try things, I want us to feel like we’re each other’s people.  Making sure that connection is there is what makes beautiful photographs.

On this particular, not so traditional day, I joined Johnna and Horacio in Seattle for a perfect elopement.  People clapped and stared as we roamed the streets together.  It felt like everyone was out to see them.  It was….magical.
