You may remember Wai+Tat's post here that I did when he proposed to her last June. Fast forward almost a year and we're a month away from their wedding. They're getting married on May 15th in Washington's wine country at a beautiful, quaint venue and Wai graciously asked me to be her Matron of Honor. Thinking back to the day I first saw Wai in high school, I could never have imagined at that time that we'd end up here. She was part of my wedding and I can not be happier to be apart of hers. It's comforting to know that she's found such a suitable mate for herself. He's the yin to her yang, the sugar to her spice, the memory to her lack of memory! :) I tease Wai all the time for her forgetfulness, but I seriously believe she's forgetful because she's so carefree. From now on, she has Tats to lean on, and I can not see her with a better man.
Wai+Tats already have their wedding photographer hired but we really wanted to also take some pictures for them. This time of year, cherry blossoms bloom beautifully and there's only a short window of time before they're all gone. Our University of Washington (the alma mater to Wai, Tats, Chris and myself) campus is famous for our cherry blossoms and that's what Wai+Tats requested. We started off at Pike's Place Market though and the theme of the day was PEOPLE! We could not get away from the massive amount of people everywhere we went, but we tried to make it work. The results? Well, see for yourself below. :)
Wai, you surprise me with your beauty! The moment I think...oh she's so cute...you decide to lay some "fierce" on me!
Chris and I love catching impromptu moments while we're shooting. Wai+Tats weren't posing here...she was just so darn cold and he was trying to keep her warm!
For those not from Seattle, this is a wall full of chewed up gum. Colorful eh? I guess not as colorful as Tats in these pics.
EVERYONE was out enjoying the cherry blossoms that day...including Wai+Tats' wedding photographer they hired! I think the couple's pretty happy to see him!
Ahh...a natural, beautiful smile.
Tats was a great sport! He's not a fan of the "forehead to forehead" shots but he posed for us anyway. And I think right about here, he's saying, "Oh man, this is uncomfortable!"
I love a fun couple that'll do anything a photog asks them to do. This includes lying, stomach down in the university library, with surrounding students studying around them!
My good friend, Wai, I love you and can not be happier for you. You will be such a gorgeous bride...I can not wait to stand beside you on your wedding day as you enter the land of married blissed-ness. :)
