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!
Other fantastic vendors as a part of this wedding day team: Flowers: Pozie by Natalie, Makeup: Elizabeth Marie, Hair: Leah Kooistra, Cake/Dessert: Pure Bliss Desserts, Catering: Crave, DJ: Audio Innovations, Wedding Dress: The Dress Theory Seattle
Woodstock Farms will forever be one of my all time favorite places to shoot in Bellingham. With spectacular views of the bay, all kinds of terrain, beautiful old buildings, huge trees and water access- it just doesn’t get any better. I loved hanging out with Morgan and Joe and I absolutely can’t wait for their big day this summer! The positivity, kindness and love was just emanating from these two all evening!
It was a perfect, sunny PNW afternoon for these two! We made our way down Chuckanut Drive and parked int he lot above Clayton Beach to explore the woods a bit before making our way down to the long stretch of sand. This is one of my favorite beaches in the area, mostly because of the amount of soft sand! I always love when couples bring along a change of outfits, too. So we were able to get a more casual and more dressy vibe!
