Belle in the lavender fields at Back in Thyme Lavender last summer! Bridal sessions are the perfect opportunity to give you dress, hair, makeup and accessories a trial run before your big day! We spent about an hour playing in the field, capturing the details and finding poses that really made her feel comfortable and fabulous. That soft purple hue with her beautiful lace dress was perfection. Makeup: Ashley Lee Beauty , Hair: Brooklyn Matthysse
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!

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!
