Ashley + Peter | Olympic National Park, WA {Ruby Beach Engagement Session}

Ashley + Peter are one of my amazing Fall 2018 couples and I am so psyched for their wedding. For their engagement session, we first stopped at their favorite little coffee shop in Olympia, then took a little road trip over to the coast and explored Ruby Beach. Despite the golden rays of sunshine in the photos, it was actually FREEZING and they were such troopers sticking it out so we could get some bangers.

These two killed it and I'm so excited to share this engagement session with you all!

Rylie + Ryan | Intimate NWA Wedding {Mildred B. Cooper Memorial Chapel + The Ravington)

Rylie and Ryan's wedding was honestly one of the most beautiful wedding days I have ever witnessed - both in aesthetic, and in soul. No really, the souls of these too. I could feel the love and warmth all day long.  Rylie and Ryan had a very short engagement - they just could not wait to be husband and wife - and the way everything came together in just a couple short months made it clear that this marriage was just meant to be. The couple and their creative families DIY'd many of the details of the day, including the florals which Rylie's mother did herself! 

The two started the day getting ready in bride and groom suites at The Ravington, a rabbit's feet factory turned wedding venue. One of the most memorable events of the morning was the emotional moment Rylie spent with her Maid of Honor (aka her mother) as she helped her into her dress and gifted her a new charm for a necklace Rylie had been wearing for years.  Then everyone headed over to the Mildred B. Cooper Memorial Chapel in Bella Vista, where they opted not to do a first look, but rather to make each other (and everyone else in the room) bawl as they saw each other for the first time in their wedding attire, when Rylie walked down the aisle with her father.  The emotion and love in the room as the Rylie and Ryan vowed to love each other forever was almost tangible. They concluded the ceremony with songs of praise joined in by their audience of dear friends and family. After some portraits and alone time, Rylie and Ryan headed back to The Ravington, where their loved ones awaited them with a hot meal, moving toasts, and the dance party of a lifetime. 

Congratulations to the newest Mr. and Mrs. McPeak!

Lauren + Scott | Discovery Park {Seattle, WA Engagement Session}

Lauren and Scott are one of the sweetest couples I've had the chance to work with. I had so much fun with them, exploring Discovery Park while hearing all about their beautiful love story!

They met in College at the University of Oregon and have been together for seven years, a majority of which has been spent in different states. Lauren works and lives in California, and Scott is a minor league baseball player and lives on the east coast! I have so much respect for couples who make long-distance relationships work, especially these two! They may not spend every waking moment together, but when they are in the same place at the same time, they make the most of it! 

Keep an eye out for Scott and Lauren's classy, rainy-day wedding coming soon!

Ireland | Fall 2017 {Travel + Landscape Photography}

10 days, 8 flights, 25+ hours in a car. All worth it.

At the beginning of this month, Brandi, Lindsey, and I set off on adventure to see the beautiful land of Ireland. We rented a car and road tripped around the entire country - and in order to meet up with some other groups of friends, we did not necessarily take the route that made the most sense, hence the 25+ hours of driving. Ancient castles, wavering cliffs, unbelievable rock formations, and endless fries (aka "chips") made for an experience of a lifetime.

Kelsey + Shelby | Las Vegas, NV {Elegant + Romantic Wedding in Downtown Las Vegas}

Kelsey + Shelby's wedding day was one of the sweetest, most relaxed and enjoyable wedding days I have ever had the privilege of being a part of. The whole day was filled with this love that you could literally see, and it multiplied any time these two were in the same room. The details were gorgeous, the music was incredible, and most importantly, Kelsey + Shelby were focused on each other - like "what can I do in this moment to make sure this is the best day of her life?" kind of focused on each other. As you scroll through these images, I hope you can connect with the feelings and emotions that I had the honor of documenting on this beautiful day.

Nicki + Josh | Olympic National Park, WA {Lilliwaup Couple's Session}

Nicki + Josh were one of the incredible couples that modeled for us at the Alpine Northwest Photography Workshop this year. Unfortunately, we only got to spend about 20 minutes shooting each couple, but man I could have photographed these two all day, all night.
