Karena+Jamie | Pickering Barn Wedding


Karena+Jamie win, if for no other reason (and there are tons of other reasons) than their original inquiry email being the most enthusiastic and excited message we’ve received to date. There’s something pretty excellent about getting a message exclaiming their joy at finally writing you because they’ve been following your work longer than they’ve been engaged, so there was absolutely no surprise when we discovered that these two were as “Our People” as anyone has the capacity to be.

Their engagement session  was stylish and capital-F Fun, so we spent the following 18 months eagerly awaiting this party they were throwing. And oh man, what a freaking day. We started off our nearly four hours of photo time (EVERYONE GIVE US FOUR HOURS!!!) with a First Look at a trail on Tiger Mountain in which Jamie’s “You’re so pretty!!!” echoed through the quiet woods. Karena rocked her mom’s wedding dress like it was made for her, and Jamie’s Karena-made Magic: The Gathering mana boutonniere (Josh’s inner nerd was dancing) was so so SO legit.

They snuggled, they hiked up and down a mountain, and they let us steal them after the ceremony for sunset over Lake Sammamish photos, and they rocked our world the whole time. The ceremony was full of lovely vows and hand fasting ceremonies, and the reception was all dance party and toast-provoked laughter. It was an entirely perfect day that we never wanted to leave. So thanks, you two, for digging us up like two years ago, and having us along for the raddest of days that we wish we could do again and again.
