Crystal Mountain Wedding
We were having so much fun with the girls jumping on the bed while getting ready. We were chilling outside the hotel room sipping German beer. Then of course we went all the way to the top of the Crystal Mountain to join Jessica and Michael as they wed each other with the magnificent view of Mt. Rainier as their backdrop. Nonetheless, if there’s anything to define Jessica and Michael, it’s none of the above but their passion for dancing.
I have witnessed their mad dancing skills during their engagement shoot already, but every time I see them groove with the rhythm, I’m still in awe. Especially when Michael twirls Jessica, that spinning speed really could cause a little tornado around them. Jk, but it is always jaw dropping.
Although their moves always steal the spotlight, it is just impossible not to talk about the stunning ceremony on the top of the mountain. No decor was necessary, because the whole mountain turned into part of the wedding design. With a view like this on top of a sunny day, what else can you ask for? And when I saw the walking path from the gondola all the way to the other chair lift, I knew I could create something extraordinary out of this! And in order to get the full scenery, I climbed up the stairs to a higher point of view. The leading line with the sierra in the background while placing the couple in the foreground, a spectacular panoramic photograph was created.
I’m truly thankful to be given the opportunity to photograph Jessica and Michael’s wedding. Especially I had so many “one more shot” because I just couldn’t resist taking more photos in the evening while being immersed in the twinkling stars from the sky.
