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
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
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
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
These two had a beautiful, intimate little wedding at the Washington Park Arboretum, inspired by their favorite Wes Anderson films! Danielle + Scott are both in the military and love the outdoors! Their first date was kayaking and they got engaged at the summit of Mt. Washburn in Yellowstone National Park! They were so fun to work with it was so amazing to be able to witness their special day!
Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Mucci!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
