Words cannot describe how uplifting and incredible an experience it was to attend the Seattle Pursuit 31 retreat last week. 15 women came together to share their lives, fears, struggles, hopes, dreams, and strategies. We all came with diverse stories and backgrounds, yet felt immediately bonded by our passion for God and photography. I will expand on this post later, but for now wanted to share a few photos from the mock wedding shoot “Candyland Adventures”, because, well a picture’s worth a thousand words.
The dresses, the umbrellas, the vintage awesomeness, I think my heart just about stopped when I saw who and what we’d be working with.
And then, there’s this insanely gorgeous and sweet couple… I love them so much!
Can you believe how stunning these ladies are? The second I saw them I knew this was going to be a killer shoot.
Our retreat organizers had an ambitious dream, and they made it come to life down to every colorful and tasty detail.
I absolutely cannot wait to share more from this shoot soon!! Stay tuned
