Charlotte Grace at the Park!

We were lucky to get to do another photo shoot of Charlotte last week, we photographed her parent's wedding a couple of years ago and we've done a few photo shoot's since then. This time we met Diane, Mark and Charlotte Grace at a park in Bellevue to play.... we had a great morning!

I loved how into the book Charlotte was above, it was adorable!

We finished the morning by heading to a nearby French Patisserie to get pastries and coffee... it was so great to watch Charlotte pick out her treat (she was a pro at it because she just returned from the South of France!)

We loved seeing you guys... thanks again for the great morning. Can't wait till next time!

Avrimi and Chavi's Wedding

Chavi & Avrimi were married a few weeks ago in a beautiful Jewish ceremony marked by wind, rain... and even some sun!

Above is the groom, his father and the bride's father on their way to veil his bride during the traditional Bedeken.

The rain had threatened us all day, but we only had a couple of drops... even as the couple came down the aisle it was sunny, but that did not last long!

As the ceremony got underway, the rain came, the water pooled in the center of the chuppa, I am enthralled with the water drops off the brim of the groom's hat!

I love the shot below of the Rabbi (also the bride's father), a huge thanks to Mike Goldstein, assistant shooter extraordinaire for that one!

We can never get enough of the dancing at a Jewish ceremony... it is truly incredible. Everyone dances, from the very young to the very old, everyone dances.

I love the Hora, we've never seen tables used before (above)! There was so much energy in the room, as soon as the groom got into the air he was bombarded with napkins. The napkins were also used as a jump rope for the bride (below).

The dancing went on long after we went home... it was a great night!
