Another beautiful evening at the one and only Larrabee State Park on Chuckanut Drive. This sweet couple warned me they were a little nervous about having their photos taken (as so many couples do!), but the evening ended up being so relaxing and fun. Exactly how I want all my engagement sessions to be! These sessions are the perfect opportunity to get to know each other in a non-stressful atmosphere before the big day, crack jokes and have a good time together. I couldn’t believe how beautiful the rhododendrons were for this session, too! Check it out!
Jardin Del Sol is a beautiful little garden venue tucked away in the lovely Snohomish, Washington area and offers SO many fantastic backdrops all within steps of the main venue area. Each time I’ve had the opportunity to shoot here the space has been immaculately kept and full of color.
As often happens on wedding days in all the hustle and bustle, the bride and groom were running behind schedule- so what to do, you ask? Well, you don’t panic and you step up your detail game! The combination of the lush greenery of Jardin Del Sol and the many details Angela and Luis had worked hard to put together for their special day, there was plenty to photograph. As the couple arrived we were all geared up and ready to focus right on them as the day began to unfold.
Angela’s daughter was the flower girl for their big day and it was so sweet to watch the two girls get ready together and share some really special moments before walking down the aisle. It was a very emotional ceremony for this couple who had been together for several years and begun building a life together long before their official wedding ceremony, but they certainly know how to party after all the tears had been dried! The dance floor was full of fun on this beautiful summer evening in the Pacific Northwest. <3
Helen and Michael's wedding day was so DREAMY! The Lairmont has such charm and the garden and patio space was the perfect fit for these two and the casual and relaxed evening with their people. The guests even got to enjoy an amazing meal by Ciao Thyme and music by Hot Damn Scandal! A true PNW wedding full of so much local talent!
This beautiful and intimate ceremony last August for Michelle and Mirek was really heartwarming. There's just something special about your closest friends and family and the sun shining on the water. Just about 30 people gathered at a private home for the ceremony overlooking the water before traveling out to Semiahmoo for a gorgeous dinner in the garden beside the beach. Sweet vows, beautiful weather and lots of playful laughter. I am so happy I could be there, too.
