The rain has never let up on this Halloween weekend in Seattle. In fact, if you looked outside the window and wished for less of it, it would rain harder. When I began Alexis and Stephen’s Victorian wedding photography on Saturday afternoon, I wished for clear skies at first, but then with every photo made, I realized that the heavy rain, milky fog hanging in the air was the best nature’s gift for the theme of their wedding. It added more character to it, enhanced the atmosphere and the dark spirit of the Halloween weekend. Top hats, fans, parasols, corsets, details and creativity all around! This was photographer’s dream to capture. And yes, my cameras were rained on, but without the rain, the images would have not looked the same: Gothic- like and intense. Alexis and Stephen got married at Parsons Garden (the “secret garden that isn’t quite so secret”), Queen Anne, Seattle. Reception took place at the Columbia Tower. Flowers: Aria Style.
