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! Check it out <3
Last year my husband and I took a cooking class with Andrea of Ravioli Experience- an AirBNB Experience I booked for the two of us as a surprise! Andrea grew up in Italy, owned his own restaurant in Seattle for 5 years and has been teaching classes for quite some time. This class was all about learning to roll out and cook your own colorful ravioli using colored dough died with natural elements. You can check out some photos of the class from my previous blog post here! As it says at the end of that post- I fell deeply in love with the cake Andrea made us for our post cooking feast. This Orange Almond cake is absolutely divine. It’s soft and moist and FULL of flavor, but not overly sweet. I made it for the first time last week and can’t wait to make it again. As I was photographing the cake in my home studio space using natural light the PNW weather decided to change rather quickly- as it does. So, I had the chance to photograph this cake in both even diffused light as well as direct sun. Which do you prefer?
A little behind the scenes look at what my studio setup was like this day!
I met this sweet family while volunteering with the Bellingham Kiwanis Young Professionals group and was SO delighted when they asked me to photograph their family before a big life adventure! They are now spending some time in Germany for a work opportunity and watching this CUTE little lady grow up! Our session out at Woodstock Farms was brilliant- the perfect PNW evening.
Summer is JUST around the corner and is hands down my most busy season of the year. If you’re hoping to get your family photos done this year, don’t wait! Contact me to book today!
Absolutely loved this gorgeous kitchen AND living room remodel by Jennifer Ryan Designs! The simple kitchen style overlooking Lake Whatcom and the bright and cheerful living room were the perfect match. I can’t get over that beautiful tile!
