natasha & jon// artist point elopement

natasha-jon-baker-elopement (15 of 310)_seattle wedding.jpg

Where do I even begin with these beloved babies? Should I start with how being the photographer for THE Natasha of THE Invisible Hostess (Seattlites— call them to plan your wedding) was a next-level thrill? What if I start with how on their first date, Natasha showed up a bundle of nerves and Jon stood up, enveloped her in a genuine hug, and gently led her to their table in such a loving way that even the BARTENDER commented on how beautiful it was. I cry whenever I think about it and I wasn’t even there!

NO- ok, I’ll start with this: these two had the genius idea to get married at the iconic Canlis restaurant in Seattle, but run away to Mt Baker two days before to have a sneaky secret elopement— just the two of them and Natasha’s angelic daughter Mads. Natasha’s bestie Sheena officiated, and even a sudden freezing downpour couldn’t get in the way of the plan. They ended the day in sweats feeding each other pizza and champagne over the kitchen sink, please tell me this is the best wedding vision you’ve ever heard. Natasha and Jon: they create a vision, and fight like hell to bring it to life, glowing with love for everyone around them all the way. They even forced us to bring Misa, and as a new mom fighting to keep her chin up through the first summer of parenthood, I will literally never forget that (or how Mads adopted Mis as her new little sister). Take a little scroll here and tell me you can get through this wedding without at least tearing up a little– look at Mads and Jon during their vows to each other! MELT ME.

I’ll blog the Canlis wedding tomorrow, even more design genius ahead!

tim gave his coat to Mads and was soaked, but luckily our cameras still worked in the rain and we have a chill baby.

Ugh. Instagram captions. What the hell?

I've spent countless moments of my life staring at a blank instagram caption box. Try something - delete it. Put a quote in there - delete it. But I had a secret weapon... I'd just hand the phone to my wife. She's is a witty and wise firestorm of a woman and I love her for it. Apparently, so does instagram. Her irreverent, meandering, and poignant-as-hell captions have created a sense of community in our lives so that everywhere we travel, there’s usually someone willing to show us around (not to mention insta alone has literally put thousands of dollars in our bank account). So I made her sit down and explain what goes through her curly little head whenever her thumbs click away at her phone keyboard. Put your email below for her free guide on how to write insta captions that people actually care about and make the whole process (dare we say it) fun.. -Tim
