Yan & Greg | Willows Lodge

My latest wedding shoot was for Yan and Greg, who had a beautiful wedding at Willows Lodge, a landmark of northwest luxury in the heart of Woodinville wine country.

I always love working with an organized couple, and Yan had everything on the timeline organized down to the minute—it was fantastic! She was so great to work with.

One of the things I enjoy most about working so many weddings is seeing how the couple interacts with their families. Yan and Greg are clearly very loved—Yan had family travel all the way from China, and it was especially meaningful for her to have her grandmother there. Greg’s family traveled all the way from Florida, and each of them had friends and family come from all over the rest of the country. How special it was for them to have all their loved ones together at once!

I have to say, Yan and Greg are one of the sweetest and kindest couples I’ve ever worked with. Not only do they obviously care very much about their family and friends, but they had such a genuine and perfect day planned.

Yan’s parents were just as sweet as she is. Her mother made sure to tell me not to bring breakfast in the morning of the wedding, and that she’d have something prepared for me, which meant a lot.

All of the details of the wedding were absolutely beautiful, especially the handmade oragamis that Greg made for each guest as a way for them to know which table they were sitting at. There were giraffes, bears and all kinds of other complicated and beautiful designs.

Photographing the wedding was a real treat. Jenn, the Day Of Coordinator, was wonderful to work with, and shooting at Willows Lodge was a new experience for me. I hope I can get back there to do another wedding at some point!

I am grateful to have worked with Yan and Greg and gotten to know them and their families, and wish them a wonderful life together.
