Nicole and Justin eloped at Pinnacle Peak, a gorgeous hike at Mt. Rainier National Park. Justin used to be a ranger at Mt. Rainier so it is a very special destination to them. Their best friends came along for their special day and acted as their officiants. One of my favorite parts of the evening was at the very end of their ceremony, the fog came rolling in right in time for their first kiss as a married couple! It was so magical, I couldn’t believe the timing. Bravo, Mother Nature.Read More
On their trip to Seattle, Briana knew she would be seeing some incredible views, but she was over the moon when one of those views included the sight of Chris, down on one knee, with a gorgeous engagement ring, and a very important question.
Congratulations to this lovely couple!Read More
This maybe isn’t saying much, because all of my couples make me happy, but this wedding had me smiling from cheek to cheek the entire day. These two have the cutest relationship and their love blessed all in attendance to their intimate, family-oriented wedding day on Vashon Island. Janita described Jonathan as the Yang to her Yin, and that was apparent from the moment I met them. They complete eachother.
Congratulations Janita + Jonathan!Read More
If every morning could be like this morning, that would be okay with me. J’s adventurous spirit and stunning smile, combined with this incredible location, made for one of my favorite boudoir sessions to date.Read More
Kelsea + Perry had a beautiful, intimate ceremony above Diablo Lake in the North Cascades National Park. Their closes friends and family members brought their camp chairs and their pups and gathered around to witness these two commit their lives to each other! It was such an awesome day!Read More
Chelsie and Matthew, with their fur baby Archie by their side, set out last July for the Olympic National Park for the beginnings of their biggest adventure yet - marriage! They got ready at a rustic lake-house cabin with a beautiful view of Lake Crescent, took some photos with Archie (did I mention this dog has a faux-hawk? Such a cute boy!), then headed off to elope in the woods and explore the gorgeous Marymere Falls!
It was such an awesome day - every elopement I have the chance to be a part reminds me of how incredibly lucky I am to get to do what I do and experience the things I get to experience.
SO MUCH LOVE!Read More
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!Read More
For the second part of Karissa + Jamin's couple's session, they wanted to celebrate one of their favorite things to do together - music festivals! They actually met and fell in love at a festival so shooting part of their session in their festival outfits was an absolute must.Read More
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!Read More
This love story is one that hits me right in the feels. The way these two look at each other (and their sweet little dude) just makes me so grateful to have witnessed their big day! Sam and Jorgen vowed forever at Kiana Lodge in Poulsbo, WA, in February 2018. It was a frigid day that started off with a light snow and ended with a lot of cold wind, but they didn't let the weather stop them from enjoying the best day ever!
Samantha is originally from Los Angeles and Jorgen is from Alaska. They met in North Carolina in 2012 and say they almost immediately knew they'd stay together forever. Jorgen is in the military and is a special forces guy, which is what brought them to Washington. Sam has a wonderful little boy who Jorgen has raised from when he was ten months old, and they're inseparable.
Jorgen deployed only a couple weeks after their wedding day and I just have so much respect for these two and other military families who are apart for such long periods of time but still make it work and put each other first.
Congratulations Jorgen + Samantha and thank you for letting me document your love!Read More
If I told you these two just met today, would you believe me? Big thanks to Hailey and Josh for modeling for me! I've been wanting to learn the basics of videography and holy moly is it whole different beast.Read More
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!Read More
