Luke & Dina | Bellingham, WA
Luke and Dina are close friends of Chloe Smith; and only a few weeks before Chloe embarks on the Pacific Crest Trail, we both had the opportunity to capture this incredible love story.
Meeting halfway around the world, Dina and Luke began to build their love on a strong foundation of their faith. They share a strong love for backpacking, outdoors, and pretty much all things adventurous. On their wedding day, friends from around the world came to celebrate with these two.
It was truly an incredibly ceremony, as you'll see in the photos and the video! Intentionality would be the only word I could use to describe it. Every minute of their ceremony held so much symbolism as to what they value, what they promise to each other, and what they wanted out of their wedding day, marriage, and lives.
The day after the wedding, we went on the Pacific Northwest Trail, just south of Bellingham, to capture some more portraits of this amazing couple. As a Midwestern boy, they pushed me as we did miles of switchbacks from the start of the trail. Onlookers gawked and shouted congrats as the white wedding dress stood out among the green ferns. But the mountain was beautiful and it was such an honor getting to know these two, celebrate with them, and capture such a big moment in their lives!
