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
Cameo and Dawson had a gorgeous, romantic backyard wedding in Olalla, WA. They began their day getting ready with their wedding parties, sang worship music and exchanged their vows, grubbed on homemade tacos, and celebrated with their friends and family!Read More
The day after their wedding, Cameo and Dawson met me at Tipsoo Lake on Mt. Rainier for their day-after wedding portrait session, and it was absolutely incredible. The weather was magical!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
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!Read More
