Sun Juan Island Elopement
I had the opportunity to travel to Friday Harbor and photograph Hilary and John's special elopement on this perfect little island. These two were so calm and comfortable and couldn't take their eyes off of each other. It was so magical to spend an entire afternoon with them and be able to soak in every moment of this special time. They had planned out every little detail down to her bouquet and his boutonniere from Pelindaba Lavendar, an awesome Pendelton blanket for their ceremony, fun socks, champagne on the beach, "just married" paint pens for their car and so many other thoughtful little touches. Hilary and John- I will never forget this day and I am so honored that you let me be a part of this with you!

Backyard Beach Wedding
This couple lucked out with a totally gorgeous day out on the beach for this PNW wedding at their family home! They had so many unique little detail and special items in remembrance of people they loved throughout their entire day. I loved watching them laugh and play in this intimate setting with the people they love most.
Yovi + Thomas
Bastyr Chapel Ceremony
Palisades Restaurant Reception, Seattle WA
Yovi and Thomas had the most beautiful wedding day in so many different locations around the Seattle area. We started the day off at the Bastyr Chapel for a small, intimate ceremony with their close friends and family. From there we set off for a quick visit to Kerry Park for that unbeatable view of the Space Needle and then headed down to The Palisades Restaurant for their reception. They held a traditional tea ceremony before serving a several course meal and then the dancing and partying began! This celebration was so special for every single person in attendance and we were honored to be a part of such a special day. Thank you Yovi and Thomas! Congratulations. <3

North Bend, Washington
Allison and Jon started their day with a gorgeous ceremony at their church in Issaquah followed by a fantastic reception out at Bybee Farms near Issaquah, Washington. I absolutely LOVED the color combo of their big day with fabulous flowers from Kristen of Full Aperture Floral. We stopped at a bridge at the base of Mount Si for a few photos before playing in the blueberry fields!
Baker Creek Place
This super sweet couple and their adorable little kids were so spunky and fun to work with. Loved the little details in this wedding and her glamorous style!

It turned out to be an absolutely gorgeous day at Lairmont Manor in Bellingham, Washington to celebrate Kellie and Scott tying the knot. After working with them several months ago for their engagement shoot in Fairhaven, Washington I knew their day was going to be a lot of fun. These two have such a carefree, silly and playful relationship- it's really a delight to be around them. After a few shots around the manor they wanted to make their way down to Fairhaven for some group shots. We happened upon an impromptu salsa dancing class in the middle of the plaza, so naturally we took advantage of this and it was so fun to watch their favorite group of friends all bust a move :) A full day of big smiles, silly friends, big families, cute babies and an absolutely gorgeous ceremony is definitely one for the books! Thank you for sharing it with us Kellie and Scott!
Mount Vernon, WA
Loved working with this kind, playful couple. Their bridal party was such a hoot and and the colors at this venue were absolutely wonderful. Young love is so sweet <3 Check out more on the blog HERE!
Whatcom Museum and Whatcom Lightcatcher Museum
These two museums were the most fantastic wedding venue combination. Brandon's love for museums and Brianna's love for color and fun were so perfectly matched here and gave me so many unique and amazing backdrop options! The color exhibit that was live at this time was completely breathtaking and the spunky personalities of Brianna and Brandon made the day so easy going and playful <3
Jenny + Trevor
Traveling for weddings is by far one of the most rewarding parts of my job. This fantastic venue in the very small town of Campbellsport, WI was SO lovely and offered such a fantastic change of pace. Jenny and Trevor were so sweet and we had a great time together over the several days we spent getting to one another. For the engagement session we even had the opportunity to incorporate Jenny's horses!
Ashley + Kevin
Backyard wedding near Custer, Washington!
This sweet, intimate ceremony and reception was absolutely lovely. Full of local talent, too! Ashley did her own makeup and owns Ashley Lee Beauty, flowers from Pozie by Natalie and desserts from Gathered Confections!
Downtown Fairhaven and Ferry Terminal
These two sweethearts got married at the Bellingham Ferry Terminal a few weekends ago and it turned out to be the most GORGEOUS fall day to wander the streets of Bellingham and Fairhaven. I met Katja and Joel way back last fall and their laid back spirit and big, giant grins had me all giddy to get them in front of my lens. They were surrounded by so many wonderful people, great food, cute dogs and you could stop smiling.

I met Cory last summer at a bar in Bellingham that actually no longer exists (RIP The Fountain). We drank cocktails and cracked jokes. It felt like meeting up with a long time friend. She told me she had found me through a friend of hers. This friend actually followed MY friend who creates beautiful hand-stamped flatware and sells it on Etsy. She found my name through some of my photos of these flatware pieces and told Cory to call me. Cory reached out and I am so so happy she did. Life is funny, right?
SO THEN: I met two of the best people ever.
This couple is SO so easy and fun to be around, completely and obviously in love with each other and so passionate about their lives. Cory is lighthearted, funny and determined. Chad has a giant heart and a way of making each person he meets really feel appreciated- Not to mention he's a kick-ass craftsman (their wedding venue never could have happened without him!) They make a great team.
We got to talking about their engagement session and they told me they wanted to hang out for an entire day on their boat and hop on over to an island real quick. Um, what? YEP. We made our way to Sucia Island and spent the day drinking beer, playing on the beach and wrangling their crazy (and adorable) dogs. For their wedding? Well, what better place to have it than in their own backyard!? These two worked tirelessly for months to prep their first home together for a giant celebration- And IT RULED. You killed it Cory and Chad! Only to top it all off on a giant boat ride around Bellingham Bay. I mean, why not?
Cory and Chad: We love you. Thank you for these fantastic memories. I will treasure them. <3

This spunky couple had their small, intimate celebration on New Years Eve at this beautiful old manor in Bellingham, WA. It was so full of love and TONS of adorable little kids :)
Pine River Ranch
We had the most amazing weekend photographing Rachel and Brent's wedding at Pine River Ranch in Leavenworth, Washington. This venue is so beautiful and hosts SO many gorgeous backdrops. We ended up with the most perfect weather and these two were glowing. I have known Rachel and Brent since they started dating back in high school, so it was an honor to be there to watch them tie the knot.
Thank you for including us in your special day and congratulations Rachel and Brent! You are the most lovely couple!

Samson Estates Winery
Jill and Mike are hands down some of the kindest people I have ever met. We became instant friends right after their engagement session at Bowman Bay. Their day was so filled with happy tears it was hard to see through my lens half the time. A beautiful day out at Samson Estates Winery full of tons of beautiful details including her dress from Frankie and Maude and rented items from Rustic Event Rentals!

Katie + Mickey
Lairmont Manor, Bellingham, Washington
These two love to sail and their boat theme carried through both their engagement session and their wedding day!
Jardin Del Sol
Sara and Jeremy happened to have their big day RIGHT in the middle of the greater Seattle area's giant windstorm this summer- and these two didn't skip a beat. These giant, beaming smiles were glued to their faces all night. It was beautiful.
Jardin Del Sol is one of my very favorite wedding venues in the Snohomish area. We were thrilled to have the chance to be there again! So many beautiful colors were incorporated into the decor, homemade desserts by a dear friend, hula-hoops, a few umbrellas and that stormy day couldn't have been more perfect <3
Thanks for everything, Sara and Jeremy! We won't forget you (or your little crab friend, either!)

Eek!! I have been looking forward to Holly and Mili's wedding for MONTHS! I can't believe I finally get to make this post and show all of you how perfect it was. These two had everything planned out SO well and incorporated their theme in so many fun and creative ways. The wedding took place at Central Cinema in Seattle, Washington and the cinema staff went above and beyond to make their day special. From personalizing the marquee outside the theater, to signs and posters all over the inside and handing them their first glass of champagne as they came back down the aisle- Big props to the cinema team! Beautiful flowers, 3D glasses, popcorn and beloved theater snacks.. this was a really beautiful day. I loved being a part of this adventure- Thank you Holly and Mili! Congratulations!

Baker Creek Place
These pictures bring a huge smile to my face every time I look at them. I am so blessed to have worked with these two and to have had the chance to meet their heartwarming friends and family. We did our engagement session together in Portland that included GIANT balloons, a skittle fight and my favorite Broadway Bridge. These two know how to throw a party and their loved ones were all right their by their side to make this day perfect.

The Fremont Foundry
This couple fell right in love with the industrial look of this venue and it fit their personalities and passions so well! This venue is so unique and provided so many beautiful textures, backgrounds and interesting light! Plus, you can't beat being a chocolate shop down the street from your wedding day :)
Ali + Kris
Woodland Meadow Farms, Snohomish, Washington
This garden style farm venue is SO lovely and the perfect, shaded location for a hot summer day! Ali and Kris were such fun to work with and I had a blast featuring so many different areas of the venue. The blooming flowers, arching trees and gorgeous ceremoyn space were so undique!
Shayna + Shaunn
Elopement to Orcas Island, Washington
We waded through the water out to the Indian Island just outside of downtown Orcas where they held this very small ceremony. It was smokey out from the recent forest fires, which actually made for some beautiful diffused light! <3
This little wedding took place ON a huge game day for the Seattle Seahawks and is located just outside the stadium. It definitely made for a rowdy crowd and a fun day downtown! This venue is so unique and beautiful!
What a beautiful day to spend galavanting around the apple orchards of BelleWood Acres last weekend with these two lovebirds and their crew! This venue has one of the best views of Mt. Baker and hosts a great outdoor area. Rebecca and Jeff had put so much forethought into the little details of their day and it all came together beautifully. A day filled with gorgeous flowers, handmade light covers made from egg cartons, cupcakes, a pizza food truck, a cake cutting cake SMASH, a giant apple orchard and families and friends that so obviously love each other. Thank you for letting us celebrate with you Rebecca and Jeff! Congratulations <3
Shuksan Golf Course
This adorable couple and their big day came to me by incredible happenstance- And I feel so lucky that it did. We had so much fun hanging out with these two at Shuksan Golf Course in July playing in the sun (and dodging golf balls!). Congratulations, love birds!

Center for Wooden Boats
What an absolutely AMAZING day!!! Shannon and Ed share a love for the Center for Wooden Boats in downtown Seattle and IT IS SO RAD. I grew up in the Seattle area and never even knew about this place- So cool. I knew from the moment these two asked me to grab a beer after their engagement session at the Mukilteo Lighthouse that we were going to be friends and I couldn't wait to be a part of their day!
Shannon and Ed have this fantastic little love story as to how the two of them met while living on the east coast- They had seen each other on public transit and locked eyes, but never ended up actually meeting that day. It wasn't until they had posted in the Missed Connections ads online that they ended up reconnecting!!!! With both of them coming from very different geographical locations, many of their family members didn't have the chance to meet until their wedding day. This crowd got along famously!
I love this story and am so happy to have been a part of this big love adventure. Congratulations Shannon and Ed!!!
Syd + Pat at Jardin Del Sol
I fell in love with this venue immediately upon laying eyes on it- Everything is so lush and cozy! The greenery and the winding paths that lead throughout the space provide such an intimate and unique space. Pat and Syd totally rocked their bag day at Jardin Del Sol in Snohomish, Washington and it was a total delight to be a part of it. These two have the biggest hearts and it was obvious throughout the night that the people who attended this event meant a great deal to them. Personal touches from the bride were sprinkled throughout the entire night and their send-off had everyone smiling!

Moran State Park
Orcas Island, San Juan Islands, WA
These two had an incredibly small and really sweet ceremony out at Moran State Park with their closest friends and family. It was a perfect day in October to see some fall colors and celebrate the PNW!
This turned out to be a totally beautiful day down in Seattle at Golden Gardens! This really intimate and sweet ceremony was full of so much love and adorable detail work all coordinated by the bride herself.
