How gorgeous are these views from Amelia + Brendon’s engagement session in Olympic National Park? Some couples are seriously so easy to photograph and these two are definitely one of those couples with so much playful love between them. I can’t wait for their wedding next June!

Hannah + Calvin | PNW Ferry Adventure {Edmonds Ferry to Kingston, WA)

An arranged marriage.

Just kidding. But for real though, Hannah + Calvin have known each other since they were kids. Their moms were best friends and would always joke (and hope) that they would grow up and marry each other one day. Well lucky for them, it actually happened!

For their engagement session, we decided to recreate their first date on the Edmonds ferry. We started at the little beach at Brackett’s Landing and rode the ferry over to Kingston and back, taking photos along the way, and it was such a fun little adventure!

Kim + Regan | Mt. Rainier Engagement Session {Mt. Rainier National Park, WA}

Spent the evening running around Mt. Rainier National Park with Kim + Regan celebrating their engagement and documenting their playful, blissful, beautiful love. The low clouds brought such a magical vibe and solidified my opinion of Mt. Rainier being one of the coolest places in the world.

Amanda + Sean | Intimate Resort Wedding in Punta Cana {Majestic Elegance, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic}

Amanda + Sean are one of the sweetest and most genuine couples I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. They originally booked me for their Fall wedding in Seattle, and then a few months later, I got a pretty neat surprise: a phone call from them to let me know that they had decided to have an intimate, destination wedding in Punta Cana instead, and lucky for me, I got to join them!

We started the day with a sunrise “morning of” session to take a dip in the ocean and have some fun at the beach, as well as calm their nerves, and get some last photos as fiancés! Then they kissed goodbye, went back to their separate rooms and got ready for their big day, and the rest unfolded perfectly.

Congratulations, Sean + Amanda, and thank you for bringing me along for the ride!

Alaina + Jared | Deer Park Elopement {Olympic National Park, WA}

Have you ever had so much to say that you end up speechless? That’s me right now trying to write about Alaina and Jared and this epic adventure we had together.

The day started out with this sweet couple getting ready together at a VRBO on Lake Sutherland with their fur baby Dingo (so much love for couple’s who get ready together on their wedding day!), then we headed over to the Olympic National Park where the cutest wedding crashers decided to join the ceremony (scroll down to see what I mean), then set off on a wondrous little ridge to pop some champagne (multiple bottles might I add) and their first dance as husband and wife, and some sunset portraits. We ended the evening with an unexpected “grand exit” photo, aka me slamming on my breaks a mile down the mountain, and making them jump out of the car for a final wedding kiss in front of their headlights!

This day was so full of love and bliss. The joy these two felt about marrying each other made me smile like a giddy little kid the whole drive home. Thank you Jared and Alaina for letting me tag along and witness your amazing love!

Karissa + Jamin | Desert Hippie Love at Frenchman Coulee {Vantage, WA}

Two of the sweetest people on the planet. I was taken back by the love I got to witness this night. Also, who knew Washington could look like Las Vegas? If you haven't been to Frenchman Coulee, it's an absolute most-see. Especially if you're a climber!

Majo + Xavi | Barcelona Lovers at Sunrise {Platja de la Barceloneta, Barcelona, Spain}

When I was in Barcelona a few months ago, I had the privilege of photographing these two and we had such a wonderful morning strolling along the Platja and exploring the nearby streets. They were so playful, kind, and friendly, and even let us in on the coolest local spots for photography! Nothing like going to a new places and getting to photograph local couples. Thank you Majo and Xavi for a great morning!

MFM Styled Shoot | Cle Elum, WA

This styled photoshoot is themed on the My Favorite Murder podcast with Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark. If you haven't listened to it, just scroll through the pretty pictures and don't think too much about it - or go listen and come back and it will make a lot more sense! I discovered this podcast around the beginning of this year and by episode two, I was hooked.

I've always been very interested in true crime and crime fiction. One of my favorite shows when I was a kid was CSI, and for a little while I thought that made me a weirdo, but it was always so interesting to me! When I discovered MFM I realized true crime was not such a strange interest after all and that I am in very good company. So here's some wedding inspiration for all my fellow murderinos! #SSDGM

p.s. there are tons of hidden references and symbols from the show, so if you recognize any of them, head down to the comments and point them out!!!
