Story

Lauren & Edmond had an epic reception with a ton of stringed lighting hanging overhead all of the tables that guests were seated at. For toasts, the layout of the tables worked out in my favour as I had Lauren & Edmond turn their seats around and put their backs to all the tables so they could face the toaster. This then allowed all the stringed lighting to be behind them in the background. I was shooting with an 85L and 35L but I particularly liked how the 85L images turned out due to the bokeh created with stringed lights.

Hi! I’m Jordan and I’m a wedding & portrait photographer based in Seattle, WA. I photograph most of my work out of state and end up in places like California, Arizona & Utah pretty often. I’m a huge fan of the desert and mountains and love any chance I can get to be somewhere beautiful.
