Pioneer Square Elopement



Welcome, to Part II, Pioneer Square Elopement. You may have seen Part one of this Pike Place Market Elopement! We started the day in Pioneer Square. When the gallery was completed I knew I had to do a part II.

This elopement with Brittany Johnathan was my first time using a Fish Eye Lens! I put it on a second camera for just a few minutes of our time together. When I picked up the lens from Glazer’s, I suspected there would be about a 70% chance I’d hate it, and a 30% chance I’d love it.

Well, I love the fish eye lens.

I think it’s especially fun for iconic locations like Pike Place Market and the Ferris wheel where my couple is being documented in juxtaposition to a fun location.

Brittany and Johnathan were high school sweethearts! You can read a little more about their story in Part I. My favorite part about photographing couples who have been together so long is when both of their families are already familiar and friends with each other! Brittany watched Johnathan’s siblings grow up and Johnathan’s Brittany’s. It was like they had all been family for so much longer than just following a wedding.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I consider getting a studio in Pioneer Square often. I absolutely love shooting on this brick wall and around the Pioneer Square courtyard. The community is so cute and the area is rich with successful small businesses! I would love to have this courtyard right outside my studio some day.

Even if you’re just looking for a day-date or daycation, I recommend making a trip out to this spot! They have over-sized games like connect four, chess, and ping pong set out for anyone to play. This time of year, they have twinkle lights up everywhere and a horse drawn carriage riding through. I definitely recommend checking it out!

Thank you, again, Brittany and Johnathan!!! I had so much fun running around Seattle with you! Sincerely, Jaclynn.

Hi! How are you? Thinking of lots of my clients lately and hoping you’re doing well no matter where life has taken you! I’ve been laying low. Loving on my kiddos, friends, sisters, and partners. They’re all taking great care of me, too! Working my booty offf. Trying to eat healthy and navigate adulting more […]

The in between

Life has been very romantic lately. Unknown and confusing and both flighty and grounded all at once. I remember being 14 and seeing my entire life by your side. Life is wild. I remember a water bottle and abandoned bleachers. I remember axe body spray and the way I had never been kissed. I know […]

Nirvana & I think of you

I hope you know better than to think I’d want to be anywhere but here right now. It was true on NYE and it’s true right now in my car outside the café. This may have felt seamless. Too seamless. Happenstance. But I’m here on purpose, now. I see your soft heart and I see […]

I hope you know better

You’ll walk through a glittering white veil, uncharacteristically soft compared to what you’ll find behind it. It has no need to keep you out. You quickly realize it’s the aura within that turns most around. The texture disorients. I’ll already be inside. What do you see? Upon first impression, you’re in a desert. Interesting considering […]
