The Spillman were an amazing couple to photograph. When I got the call I felt a deep gratitude and was a bit shocked because they are some of the coolest people I know. I thought for sure they would hire some hip Seattle dude with a sweet beard and a small camera. Brian is a pastor and an artist (Instagram @B_line_dot) and Sam works at an awesome coffee roaster in the heart of Seattle. B and I go back for forevers (Pueblo Slang).
Everything about their day was non-traditional and I loved that. I think a wedding should be about the individuals and not about obligations or empty traditions. The coolest part for me was they gave me a vision of what they wanted and gave me the creative freedom and trust to do what I do. I highly recommend this approach to couples. When there is a mutual trust and respect between client and photographer awesome images are made.
Thank you, Spillman's for trusting me with your beautiful day.
If you are engaged and looking for a photographer I would love to connect over a cup of coffee or chat on the phone.
