Kaylena + Ryan | A Backyard Summer Wedding in the Cascades

Kaylena and Ryan’s wedding was on one of those summer days where the sky is wide and blue and scattered with puffy clouds, where the breeze is warm and kind and fills the air with fragrant scents of the grass of her grandfather’s property underfoot, the sounds of laughter of a gathering of family and friends, and the glow of starlight when the sun finally admitted defeat to the night after hours and hours of glorious glow. One of the rare nights where the air stays warm and feels like an embrace — I miss those coming from the Midwest.

Kaylena left no detail unattended. Everything was so romantic, and the gorgeous florals were dripping in reds and pinks. As the sun set over the reception tables, fairy lights lit up the tables and candles flickered in the twilight. I mean it was DREAMY.

Taylor + Andy | A Sun-Drenched Discovery Park Engagement

As I sit typing this, I have my five month old baby laying on his little Nemo playmat with dangling fish and sea creatures — and It’s making me realize that Taylor and Andy’s was the first wedding I booked after having the baby. He was still pretty new when we headed out to do their engagement session. Those first few trips out felt triumphant, and coming back to myself after the very giving process of labor and delivery.

My favorite sessions are the ones where we have space to explore, when the time just flies, and there are chapters of laughter, sincerity, quiet and noise. These sessions seem to live and breathe, and rather than considering an individual photo, the gallery is experienced as a whole — one frame leading to the next in a cadence.

MaiLinh + Jake | Ballard Locks Winter Engagement

Winter means engagement sessions! It’s my favorite way to get to know my wedding couples, to find out what makes them laugh and to see the way they interact with each other. I’m always thrilled and grateful for the little glimpse into their lives.

We started this session with their EXTREMELY spry 8-year-old dog, and when life got too overstimulating for her, we continued on our own. :) I don’t get to spend enough time at the Locks, but they’re such an iconic part of Seattle history. On this particular day, a big day-cruise boat with Christmas EVERYTHING came through and made a performance, so it was busier than usual, but it’s usually a quiet escape in the city.
