Alex & Brandon

Alex & Brandon
Oh. My. Goodness. Although I have been on the Olympic Peninsula, and have shot there, somehow I have managed to miss the Hoh Rainforest. When Brandon contacted me from out of state to say that he and his fiance Alex wanted to elope there, I of course was excited...but I had no idea how magical this place was going to be. They had actually never been there either[...]

Megan + McCay

Megan + McCay
After their engagement session, I was so looking forward to seeing them again when they flew out for their wedding 8 months later. They didn't disappoint - I was in love with the details and decor for their big day, and all the thoughtful touches that graced the whole event. The florals were just divine - and the color palette, the geode place markers (she even gave m[...]

Cassandra + Carlo

Cassandra + Carlo
This was such a sweet, small gathering on a windy bluff on the coast of Oahu. What made it really fun though was stopping at some of their everyday spots to take pics....like the grocery store, gas station, and even the laundromat (yeah, that got some stares).  Just before the ceremony began, the gathering was interrupted by the surprise arrival of the police - who we[...]

Genevieve + Aaron

Genevieve + Aaron
What a lovely little beach wedding this was! And it is always an honor to photograph another photographer's wedding...especially one as lovely as Genevieve. Just an intimate little ceremony on the beach on Whidbey Island, followed by a little portrait adventure before cake cutting at Dirty Dan's in Bellingham. It really was perfection - casual and sweet and fun! [...]

Amanda + David

Amanda + David
Oh my goodness...this wedding was just an emotional roller coaster... Amanda had lost her father, and in his place at the ceremony was a framed picture of the two of them - which she stopped and kissed on her way down the aisle. The sense of his presence for her throughout the day was palpable...and though many tears were shed during the ceremony and later during toas[...]

Aimee + Sean

Aimee + Sean
I know it has been a while since I've posted a wedding - been so busy I just have let the whole blog post thing slide! But Aimee and Sean were two of the sweetest, most down-to-earth couples I have seen, and I decided it was time to start catching up! It was so lovely to see two people enjoy their wedding day with such ease. I think one of my favorite moments was when[...]

Vanessa + Jonathon

Vanessa + Jonathon
Oh boy - it's been a while since I've posted! To be honest, I have just been super busy with my season....and I also have discovered Instagram. I mean, I knew about IG obviously, but just never really used it. Now I have to force myself to keep up with all the other platforms - it makes it too easy! (Go visit me there for more frequent pics!). But on to other thing[...]

Vintage Scandinavian Elopement

Vintage Scandinavian Elopement
So I had this idea in my head for a vintage Scandinavian elopement styled shoot...I envisioned snow, a dramatic mountain as the backdrop, and a couple of wolf-ish looking dogs to go with the bride and groom. Well, easier said than done - especially in the west Cascades. Weather and scheduling everyone involved was really problematic, but I couldn't let go of the idea.[...]

SODO Styled Shoot

SODO Styled Shoot
This SODO styled shoot was inspired by - and celebrating, that gay marriage is now legal. We wanted to show an idea for a sophisticated, upscale urban vibe for a lesbian wedding.  For a couple of grown-up girls with couture tastes looking to make a different statement on their wedding day... to pair cutting edge fashion (a sleek two-piece pantsuit, an elegant gown) wi[...]

Breanna + David

Breanna + David
This small, intimate San Juan Island wedding was so magical...the couple had spent part of their courtship (can we still call it that?!) at Lime Kiln Park studying the Orcas. Because of how special that time was for them, they decided to have a tiny ceremony there at the lighthouse for their wedding. Having barely gotten through the vows, a pod of Orcas, adults and[...]

Simply Bridal Styled Shoot

Simply Bridal Styled Shoot
Simply Bridal Styled Shoot This shoot was originally supposed to be shot outside, but the Pacific Northwest being what it is, we got thoroughly skunked and had to go to Plan B. (You always have to have a Plan B in the PNW!). It rained, it poured, the wind kicked up...ya know, the usual. We started at the beautiful Volunteer Park Conservatory which was fairly packed[...]

Majestic Inn & Spa - Winter Wedding  This wedding - and this couple, were so much fun. It was a typical rainy, cold winter day here in the Pacific Northwest, but it made no difference. This group knew how to celebrate. I had the honor of photographing their engagement session earlier in the year, and had been looking forward to their wedding at The Majestic Inn &[...]
