Lindsey + Jared | A PNW Forest Engagement Session

Meeting with Lindsey and Jared to talk about their wedding, I learned that I would probably definitely absolutely love them. Planning a private ceremony out in nature to be followed by a big bash with all their friends and family sounds like a dream. I’m so excited to be capturing their wedding day, and had such a great time with them during this session. I love this location — it’s not a big flashy spot, yet it feels like the perfect surrounding for intimate, joyful, sweet photos. I felt free to create, to pause, to see new things, and I loved it. I hope you do, too.

Enjoy.

 
 

Hayley + Brandon | A Mt. Rainier Wedding at Nisqually Winds Mountain House

I remember exactly where I was when I met with Hayley and Brandon over the phone to talk about capturing their wedding. In my purple office chair, at my desk, with my baby in his bouncer on the floor next to me — my toe gingerly tapping to keep him sleeping. This was how I spent most days last winter. The coming summer seemed so far away.

We met for their engagement session and I fell in love with them. So grounded, honest, easygoing and kind people. I was not just a vendor to them, which is my most heartfelt wish for every couple I work with. Hayley and I became buds on social media and when I showed up for this day it felt like greeting old friends. At the end of the night, we stood just outside the gathering, looking in at their loved ones, and I felt sad to go.

Life is about people, people.

Ally + Josh | A Seattle Mountain Engagement

When these two reached out about their incredible wedding at the Astor Ruins next spring, I dearly, dearly hoped that we could work together. Ally’s vision for the day includes a sunrise first look and a morning ceremony overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Count. Me. In.

Meeting creative couples who really create their wedding day around their uniqueness make this job so much fun. Your wedding is such a great chance to pull out the stops and do a party YOUR way.

Also, Ally taught me this morning that chickens are the closest living relative of dinosaurs and now I want a daily fact.

Enjoy.
