The lighting for Danielle & Scott’s engagement session at Discovery Park in Seattle was super dramatic – it would change drastically from one part of the park to another, and the sun even decided to show its glorious self right before sunset. The cloudy weather created a moody feel to their photos but their bright & fun personality shined through. Their pup, Beau, posed perfectly for a few shots despite an overwhelming desire to chase the rabbits! Danielle & Scott are so completely in love; it was such a pleasure getting to document their sweet romance! I can’t wait for their December Snohomish wedding at Lord Hill Farms!
I am thrilled to finally announce & launch my new logo & refreshed branding! 6 years ago I doodled my old logo on my notebook in high school government class… it was time for an upgrade! Sally at La Happy brought my brand to a new, elegant yet fun level. I am so excited to have a refreshed look & feel to my site that translates how I feel about my photography style & my amazingly elegant & fun couples. 2015 is shaping up to be our most incredible year yet & I can’t wait to document so many more couples in love, growing families & all of life’s little milestones! Cheers!
I am thrilled to offer my couples these gorgeous custom wedding albums. I love the contemporary feel of both kinds of albums I offer – one is a luxurious leather bound album with thick, glossy lay flat pages, and one is a completely unique fabric bound album (with an optional dust jacket) that reads like your favorite fairytale. Both showcase your wedding images beautifully and give the out-dated, traditional wedding album a run for its money. You pick the photos, I do all of the work! Kevin & I have been married almost an entire year and I still haven’t ordered our own album – take it from me, don’t try to DIY, let me do the work for you! Having your wedding photos printed & laying out encourages you to flip through them more often than if they were stuck on your computer or on a disk – relive your magical, happy day as often as possible!
As I mentioned in my post about Katie & Chad’s Mukilteo wedding, I got to shoot not one, but two Rosehill Community Center weddings that August with the fabulous Jordan Quinn Photography! Rachel & James’s stunning day was a feast for the eyes. Jordan & I just had a field day with all of the amazing details, fanciful reception decor, and full on dance party. Rachel said that the hall decorations came to her in a dream, and I totally felt like I was in a different world being in that space. She and her family had cut thousands of delicate plastic flowers and strung them on lights that hung over the dinner tables. It was like it was raining beautiful white flowers. The tablescapes included succulents, moss and tree trunk place settings. I mean, come on! It was staggering. I loved their simple white cake dotted with sprigs of ivy. The little wreath around the flower girls head. The fact that the bride & groom went head on in a boat race & then broke out into their college cheerleading routine. I am so glad I got to help Jordan document this amazing day! Congratulations Rachel & James!
I love it when I get to photograph multiple couples from a family! Last summer, I photographed Sue & Alex‘s wedding, and I was thrilled when Sue’s little sister contacted me to document her marriage to Pat! We traveled all over Seattle for their engagement photos, from the UW cherry blossoms (which just happened to be in full bloom) to strolling around downtown. The timing & weather worked out better than we could have planned. We went to the rooftop terrace of the building where Pat works at sunset, Pike Place Market, Post Alley & even grabbed a refreshing drink at Rachel’s Ginger Beer! I had the white peach flavor – sooo good! I can’t wait for their wedding in August; for now, here are a few of my favorites from their session!
