I didn’t get to meet Stephanie and Mike before the big day due to our busy schedules, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. When I first walked through the hotel room door, Stephanie was instantly kind and welcoming and diminished any fears I may have had. Stephanie was radiating with love and happiness and I could see the excitement on her face. It was the same when I met Mike. Honestly, Mike and Stephanie are two of the kindest and most humble people I’ve ever crossed paths with. They are so in love and it showed throughout their beautiful and joyous day. These two lovebirds held their special day at The MV Skansonia in Seattle. The venue was nestled on the water in a beautiful boat and the gorgeous view of Seattle and all its beauty. The venue was beautiful and had such a nice vintage, yet elegant feel to it. Mike and Stephanie couldn’t have chosen a more beautiful setting for such a perfect day.
Stephanie and Mike’s day started with them getting ready at the Roosevelt in downtown Seattle. Stephanie’s beautiful family joined her and helped her get ready for her big day. Shortly after that we took a trip to Gasworks Park to get some bride and groom portraits. The weather brought about rain as soon as we reached Gasworks park, but we still managed to capture some great shots of the lovely bride and groom! Soon after that we all headed to the venue to prepare for the commencement of the ceremony. While waiting on the ceremony, we took it upon ourselves to get some detail shots in. It was the perfect time to get them done. I would describe the details of the day as nautical and romantic.
Stephanie and Mike’s ceremony was so unique and beautiful. No one was seated at all. Everyone was standing around the bride and groom, huddled together, all snug and tight. It was intimate and brought this sense of togetherness. It was a ceremony full of love and unity. I mean, it was pretty indescribable. Mike and Stephanie exchanged vows that they had written to each other and finally, after all the planning and prepping, said their “I do’s!” They were so happy to finally seal the deal and be called Mr. and Mrs. Sperry!!!!!

After the ceremony the newly married Mr. and Mrs. Sperry signed their marriage license and enjoyed a glass of wine while they were at it.

WOW… I do not know where to start! I did not know Lessie before our photoshoot but I am so glad to have met her and chosen her to capture our engagement pictures! She was so easy to communicate with and so so helpful from start to finish. I am absolutely obsessed with the photos she captured of my fiancé and I! Not only do the photos look beyond amazing but our experience with her throughout the photoshoot was out of this world! She is extremely talented and was amazing at capturing natural and real moments!

Lessie is the most compassionate, easy to communicate with , professional photographer I have ever had the joy of working with. Lessie has a skill set the surpasses many others, her attention to detail, her willingness to try new things and her commitment to the highest quality photos and experience for all who have the honor of booking with her is unprecedented. Lessie was patient with me as I asked many questions and ended up needing a few days to determine if she was a good fit for our wedding and my gosh I am so grateful we booked with her! Lessie has a soul that is so invested in producing authenticity that many photos seem to lack. She gently coaches you through posed photos with a true air of expertise and ease. She also had the flawless ability to capture moments that may otherwise be lost somewhere in memory alone. Moments such as family members dancing, the bride and groom sharing an intimate look and smile or your favorite uncle grabbing one too many from the bar! Lessie captures life and gives life to all she meets. Booking with her will guarantee your photos will be more than you could ever dream. She will be our go to for the rest of our lives!
