Washington State Capitol Building Elopement | Olympia, WA

My husband and I have been friends with Bryan & Val for many years, so it was extra special to capture their big day. Bryan, an amazing barber (check him out here @blackfishbry) has been cutting my husband’s hair for 12 years and Val also went to law school at Seattle U, so we always love getting together to catch up with these two!

Needless to say, When Bryan reached out about wanting me to photograph their intimate, state capitol elopement, I was pretty excited! They didn’t have a particular date set in stone so it was fun to have some flexibility. They chose a random Tuesday to cut down on traffic/people in photo backgrounds and off to Olympia we went!

The only people attending the ceremony were both sets of parents, so it was a very personal affair. After some family photos, Bryan, Val and I had the best time galavanting around the state Capitol scoping out photo spots. At one point, a double rainbow appeared and of course I absolutely freaked out, running for a wide angle lens while simultaneously yelling at Bryan & Val to stay right where they were, ha! It was totally worth looking crazy for those shots though 😬
