Chuck and Jamie – Wedding Reception

EDIT TO ADD: All of Chuck and Jamie's reception photos are now online! Check them out here or by clicking on the Online Ordering link above. Enjoy!

Saturday night I had the opportunity to photograph Chuck and Jamie’s beautiful wedding reception at the Bellingham Ferry Terminal. Chuck and Jamie got married a few weeks prior in Kauai and were celebrating the occasion with their family and friends. The night was so beautiful—perfect weather and amazing details were topped off with a couple so noticeably in love. Chuck and Jamie—thank you so much for letting me photograph this special event! I had a hard time narrowing down my favorites, so check out the many sneak peak pictures below! All the rest of the night’s images (including the guest images taken by my fantastic second shooter for the evening, Chuck Hamstreet) will be up in 2-3 weeks. Keep an eye on the Online Ordering sidebar to the right for their session to appear.

The amazing view and setup at the Bellingham Ferry Terminal.IMG_0668-EditThe couple set out little fishing games for each of the young guests—adorable idea and from all the shots I got of children and their Dads’ playing the game, I’d say it was a big hit!

IMG_0675-Edit Another fantastic detail—rocks with each guests’ name and their table number on them. They looked beautiful on the table and were a very memorable touch!

They were so adorable together—still obviously very deeply in love! You should have seen these two “get down” and dance after they won! They have some serious moves!

IMG_1670-Edit As did these two!

IMG_1698-Edit And these two! Jamie rocked the dance floor all night long!

IMG_1830-Edit I think they must be teaching kids some serious dance moves in PE this year! All the weddings I’ve shot lately have the little kids doing the most amazing moves! These two were no exception!



Thanks again to Chuck, Jamie and their friends and family! You all made me feel so welcome! Special thanks to Kim and Eddie for the referral—I’m so looking forward to seeing you in August for a newborn session!
