Nat and Ximena | Seattle Studio Couples Shoot | F*ck Yeah Weddings
Ximena and Nat wanted to celebrate their relationship in all the ways that is so perfectly them! Matching pajamas, tarot card readings, all the cuddles and laughter that you can imagine! I just adore these two wonderful humans, and I am so glad to count them among my friends as well as my clients.
From Nat & Ximena:
“Nat and I jokingly talked about what we might do for the photoshoot for weeks leading up to the Big Day. But. We didn't actually decide until the morning of, and we ultimately wanted the shoot to be as US as possible! We wanted handsome, we wanted intimate, we wanted adorable, we wanted QUEER - So we brought it all! And as nervous and awkward as we were, Kendall did such a magnificent job of capturing exactly what makes us US: The loving looks, tender touches, sweet kisses, Nat's incredible facial expressions, our playfulness. And now, I love the huge picture of us hanging above our bed! We're so cute and in-love and it's just perfect. Bonus: I can't wait to send out this year's holiday cards with pictures from this shoot!” -Ximena
”I remember seeing some photos that Kendall had taken before, so I was excited to have her photograph us because I thought she'd do a really great job of capturing just how sweet we are to one another. And she did, she did exactly that! I've also never had professional photographs taken before, and I wanted them to be something I could look back on and finally see myself reflected - my authentic, hella Queer, hella Mexican self, in good lighting, with a fresh hair cut, in a studio, and professionally shot. My favorite part of the photoshoot was when we stripped down to our boxer briefs and our undershirts. We were laying on the bed just saying I love you to one another, looking at each other and at that point we had gotten over the initial awkward hysterical laughter that I think comes with having a camera pointed at you, and it was like we were just at home in our own bed. I think it takes real talent to not just capture the moment, but to capture a photograph that when you look at it, it takes you back to that moment.” -Nat
