Congrats to Jina & Brian!

I had the pleasure of capturing Jina and Brian's wedding yesterday at the Monte Cristo Ballroom. It was a gorgeous event in white and fuchsia, with sincere speeches and vows, a tech-savvy iPad-toting minister, and lots of dancing!  My friend Timothy Aguero was the second photographer. He's an amazing artist, a master at capturing quick movements and getting people to look their best. Ryan Graves from Seattle Wedding Videography was the videographer. He was great at directing people to do fun things, like having Brian and his best man act out a scene from Romeo and Juliet (see below).  

I always like to produce at least top 10 moments within a day or two of a wedding so that brides and grooms can share them immediately with their friends and family. This wedding was so fabulous that I ended up with three times as many top moments.  Here is a sneak peek of my favorites.

 It's a new day! The first day of the rest of your lives!

 I love this guy's hat and tie.  He doesn't realize that he's not in Miami, but that's perfectly fine!
