SEATTLE AQUARIUM WEDDING

Hi! I'm Natasha! Your Seattle elopement photographer, dog petter and donut eater. While photography is my first love, connecting with people is my love language. You'll find me lovin' on the big moments, the quiet moments, the silly moments – but especially the in between moments. The moments that are unadulterated and unfiltered. The ones where you are the real you. Here on the blog you'll find all of my favorite tips, tricks and resources for planning a wedding that's all about those moments.

THE COUPLE

Jason and Cody are maybe some of the most hardcore animal loving people I've ever met. SO much so that they met at the Woodland Park Zoo (talk about romance movie material???) and never looked back. And it's what made choosing to have a Seattle Aquarium wedding so easy! While both working in the tech world in Seattle, they bonded over their love of animals (and plenty of boardgames, you should see their collection. It's pretty damn impressive if you ask me.) as a way to escape the grind, and before they knew it they were in love and adopted their sweet dog Ziva. Self described as quiet introverts, they knew they wanted their wedding to be low key, relaxing, and all about spending time with each other and their families. Cause that's how weddings should be, shouldn't they?

THE VISION

The vision right from the start was all about keeping things relaxed. With an ultra small guest count, Cody and Jason knew that they wanted that quintessential mix of everything Seattle, from the bustling harbor to the art scene, right down to the native PNW sea creatures! Something clean, relatively minimal, and embrassing the feel of the city. So for their portraits we decided to head over to the Olympic Sculpture Park (part of the Seattle Art Museum, but free and open to the public!) in Downtown Seattle, one of my favorite places to visit near the waterfront, with a first look at Pocket Beach just across the secret. A beautiful little beach with views of the Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains on a clear day, before we headed right over to the Seattle Aquarium where all the magic happened!
