This summer in WA was phenomenal; 0 days of rain in July and up until this wonderful August day we didn’t have a hint of rain. Of course we almost had a mild panic attack when mother nature decided to have a crazy storm drop in and burst our summer bubble the day of this photoshoot. The morning was overcast and it even was sprinkling while Magnificent Marjani was working her magic with Stacey’s hair and make-up for their wedding bridal portraits.
We drove to Alki Beach and as we turned the bend a glorious light started peeking from the clouds. No doubt our luck was changing by the minute. All our packed umbrellas were left in the car as we headed to the dock and beach to hopefully get a few warm shots.
We posed them just in time to get a shot with some light on the city between clouds but then the most vibrant colors started showing toward the west. It started with an orange gold, we were giddy to see any color and this would have been perfect for us, but then it kept changing…
It was like a perfect painting, every color of the rainbow was bursting through the clouds – we were in awe as we watched the sky change like a kaleidoscope before our eyes.
Chris & Stacey provided our assistant for the day…their lovely daughter Lily. She thought she would get out of photos since she didn’t dress up…well we surprised her I suppose.
Stacey also moved to WA from San Diego and I think we all agree. WE LOVE SEATTLE! Even when it tricks us into thinking weather will be one way and changes last minute to something else. As we like to say … our weather is a bit Bi-Polar so if you don’t like what you see just wait a few minutes.
