Elyse and Jayson tied the knot overlooking the city of Seattle from Pacific Tower on a completely perfect Seattle summer evening. This magical location has everything from an urban feel to the city skyline and secret little hidden gardens. I knew this wedding would be something special after spending the afternoon learning so much about this awesome couple during their ferry-filled engagement session. The love and respect these two have for one another is so apparent, but it’s even more obvious that they LOVE to make each other laugh. This entire day was full of sweet emotions, big laughs, so many hugs and a beautiful couple making their forever commitment together!
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!
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!
