The Sanders Estate Wedding Photos | Sandra & Tim

Jan

18

Visiting the Sanders Estate in Kent, Washington was such a pleasant surprise! I call this the Narnia of wedding venues. A turn between two lights you would miss if you didn’t know it was there leads to a woodline and a closed solid wooden gate. After getting beeped in, those gates open to stunning landscape, beautiful antique architecture, fountains, garden swings, and even a venue pet SWAN who makes his way from one beautiful pond to the next. I would photograph another wedding here in a HEARTBEAT and I sincerely hope I do!

Sandra added so many DIY and stunning details to her’s and Tim’s special day. Sandra’s family was not able to make it as she is from Brazil, but they were able to make a morning phone call right before tying the knot and visited all of her family just a couple months after the wedding. Tim’s family stepped in big time with an honorary Mother of the Bride for a day, a full bridal party, an honorary father figure for the father daughter dance, and so so much support and love.

Dani Jean Photography came to second shoot and also helped the mother of the groom with her hair! I can not rave about this girl enough you guys, she does it all!

Enjoy all of the pretty mermaid details, gorgeous venue, BUTTERFLY RELEASE, sparkler exit, and the most hilarious “first kiss” I’ve ever photographed! — Wait, let me tell this story. Imagine “You may kiss the bride” but you just got an amazing lipstick job done by your makeup artist and you still have photos! haha, the instantaneous urge to protect the face before family photos kicked in and the pull away was unforgettable. lol, My dear brides, don’t forget your touch up makeup!!! I recommend purchasing your wedding day touch up lipstick or gloss. The kissing should be unhindered on your wedding day! –Now go on. Enjoy all the prettiness!

Best of wishes to the new Mr. & Mrs. So excited to see their wedding canvas & album arrive later this month! Stay tuned on the Sincerely Jaclynn Instagram Story for a peek at those!

Broken sublimity. “I am because you wouldn’t have it any other way.” You, are not. I should have heard that. They weren’t an illusion on my mountain. They were fixed in the sky. A planet with gravitational pull that kept my feet on the ground. A united reality where I slept safely. A further joke […]

Becky booked Ethan’s Baseball Senior Photos with The Studio about a year before we were able to finally document them. I’m so happy we finally got together to document a special time for their whole family and especially Ethan! Becky and I first met when I photographed her and Aaron’s engagement photos at the Milton […]

We’ve officially been nomadic for 18 months and we find ourselves getting cozy in Lake Chelan, Washington for the summer! With two weddings remaining summer 2022, we’re preparing to leave the state, but not just yet. I feel the need to stay close to my couples around their wedding dates which puts us not traveling […]

I’m celebrating. In a family suite at Little Creek. By a dreamy electric fireplace in dusk window light. There’s the sound of little boys watching cartoons in another room and Dinah munching food while I sip Grapefruit Pompelini. Clynn’s at a Poker Tournament. Laughing, I’m sure. Winning? Most likely. Dropping a hand or two out […]
