Mitch and Bre’s wedding day was perfectly Pacific Northwest- full of rain, umbrellas, pizza from Pizza’zza, personalized beer made by Atwood Ales AND cake topped in hops by Gathered Confections. The bride’s bouquet was assembled by the groom’s sister, Julia Moquin, and this afternoon was perfectly low-key and beautiful surrounded by close family and friends out at Hovander Park in Ferndale, WA!

Brittany and Eli’s big day at the Bellwether Hotel happened to take place during one of the smoggiest summer days due to the wildfires that were burning in Canada at the time. Many people get concerned about what these kinds of weather conditions will do to photos, but in all honesty- it’s kind of wonderful. Not that I am happy about our beautiful forests being destroyed AT ALL, but the smoke actually filters the sunshine on a hot summer day to create a really even and lovely situation for photography.
This colorful group was a lot of fun and despite the weather it was an absolutely beautiful afternoon on Bellingham Bay!
Happy Valentine’s Day to all you love birds out there! Valentine’s Day is historically one of the most popular days to get engaged, so I wanted to share some of my very favorite engagement ring shots today- Including my very own! I mean, who can resist a beautiful piece of bling!? I do my absolute best to be sure I get a great detail shots of the engagement and weddings rings at both my e-sessions and on the big day!
Katie and Max were surrounded by their HUGE and HILARIOUS group of friends and family on their wedding day at Barnstar Events in Ferndale, WA. The entire day was full of laughter and while the weather was warm, we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day to celebrate this sweet couple. I had the awesome opportunity of getting to know Katie and Max for more than a year before their wedding took place. Even though they lived out of town, they made their way back to Bellingham for an in person meeting and our engagement session together in the Fairhaven area. The chance to really get to know clients for a significant amount of time before their big day makes such a huge difference in the final product. I loved working with these two and Barnstar is a beautiful and unique venue offering SO many great opportunities for photos!
