I’M KYLE. PHOTOGRAPHER & CALVIN & HOBBES FAN SINCE '85
Hey! Welcome to my blog! As a Seattle, Snohomish, and Woodinville, Whidbey Island, and destination wedding photographer, I do my very best to provide as many articles and other pieces of information to provide as much value to you as I can. Browse around, have a look, and let me know your questions! My wife, Haley, and I are always here to help. We are so happy you are here, and we can't wait to chat with you about your wedding day!
If you’re engaged (congrats!) and you are trying to think about where to get married, the options are nearly endless. And in this blog, I am going to share my love for one of the best Seattle wedding venues. The Admiral’s House wedding venue.
I want to share with you why that is.
Not only is the Admiral’s house wedding venue sitting atop one of the most stunning vista viewpoints in all of Seattle, the property is beautifully landscaped, and the quality of everything surrounding you is world-class. So, if you are wanting a truly luxurious wedding day and you are wanting that outdoor vibe (yes, please), then make sure you take a close look at the Admiral’s House wedding venue in Seattle.
For Michelle & Cole’s wedding, it was a busy, busy day, but one that was full of laughter and good times.
They both got ready at the Thompson Hotel in downtown Seattle (great hotel to get ready in), and had their first-look right there on the rooftop! Both of them had HUGE wedding parties on either side of them, too. The girls were especially a hoot to hang out with as they got ready. A bunch of them are sorority sisters from the Delta Gamma chapter at UW, and It was a true pleasure being able to share in those experiences with them. It’s why I love being a Seattle wedding photographer so much.
After their first-look on top of the rooftop, we all got together down in the base of the hotel and headed straight towards Pike Place Market. And since this was a holiday weekend wedding (Fourth of July), Pike Place Market was PACKED. And by packed, I mean shoulder-to-shoulder extremely packed. It took quite a bit of voice and coordination to get the tourists to part ways for us. But when it comes to your wedding day, I don’t joke around! Haha. (Okay, maybe just a few jokes…).
I wouldn’t recommend Pike Place Market as a portrait session location because it can be very difficult to get to, to park, to take portraits, and to have a minimalistic background… but if you are REALLY wanting to have your portraits there, I can help make it happen.
From there, we all individually got back into our cars, drove over to the Admiral’s House wedding venue in Seattle, and started to settle in.
Personally, I hopped into photographing details, then snagged the wedding party for more portraits before all the guests started to arrive. This gave us two separate locations for their wedding party portraits, and the results speak for themselves. (Just keep scrolling down to check them out for yourself!)
