Whidbey Island Wedding | Destination Wedding Photographer

When two of your closest college friends get married, it’s always a particularly special celebration, but when two of your closest college friends get together five years after you’ve known them to be only friends and then get married just a few years later?  It’s the kind of epic moment that sitcom season finales are made of!  (Monica and Chandler anyone?) Once over the initial shock, we were all so thrilled and saw how perfect these two are for each other. Brittney’s focused, soft-spoken, nurturing spirit is the perfect complement to Josh’s energetic, driven and passionate one. Together with their shared love for God, people and making a difference in this world, they have double the potential to make an incredible impact on peoples’ lives as a couple.

So obviously I wanted to photograph Josh and Brittney’s destination wedding day at Freeland Hall on Whidbey Island, a beautiful island off the coast of Seattle. More than anything I wanted the chance to be with them all day, capturing and witnessing every moment of their special day from the pre-wedding jitters to their last dance. But I was also compelled to photograph it because I knew it would have killed me to see this special couple’s day photographed any less than perfectly.

Although their wedding day was a prototypical rainy Seattle day, which unfortunately for them meant an unplanned indoor ceremony, the sun came out for us just in time for bride and groom portraits and a spectacular getaway in a seaplane! The guests had the afternoon to relax and in the evening we all returned for an after party. It was so fun reconnecting and celebrating with NYU friends, who were all equally surprised and excited by Josh and Brittney’s unexpected union!

Josh and Brittney- Love you two so much – Alex and I are so happy for you guys!
