Woodland Engagement Session at Snoqualmie Pass

Ali, Lindsay & I totally clicked when we met for the first time. We chatted for hours over a couple of beers not only about their wedding but about their hobbies, their relationship in general, and as cliche as it may sound, about life! I was so excited to not only have the opportunity to document their upcoming wedding, but also to know them as people and as friends. Ali & Lindsay were down for anything when it came to their engagement photos, so we decided to go on a little adventure together to Snoqualmie Pass. Since their wedding will be in the city, we wanted to capture their love of nature and also bring along their awesome pup, Emo! We made a day of it and they brought some champagne, and I brought Kevin & Lemon! We had such a blast walking around the Denny Creek campground which was so peaceful and quiet. Lemon dipped her feet in a creek for the first time and, despite their size difference, became friends with Emo. We even found a little patch of snow amongst the woods that bounced some gorgeous light on the gray day. Ali & Lindsay wanted to sport their college hoodies for a couple of the shots & we all fell in love with the wooden bridge we found at the end of the session. We stopped by the Issaquah Brew House on our way back to town, all of us a little dirty & tired but happy to have spent the afternoon in the great outdoors. I cannot wait for their wedding in September – thanks for exploring with me!

Camano Island Farm: Engagement Session Location

A few weeks ago, I volunteered at the Tulalip Wedding Show for the Snohomish Wedding Guild. I met an awesome couple that invited me out to visit their property on Camano Island. On a foggy morning, my friend, Kristina, Lemon and I made the drive up to their farm and boy were we delighted by wide open spaces! It felt so good to get out of the city for the day and walk around their quiet, peaceful property (made slightly less quiet by Lemon and Amy’s adorable toddler). The sun was streaming in through the fog creating the most breathtaking atmosphere. We explored the fields, the woods, the barn and the lake, taking in all of the rustic beauty. I am dying to get a couple up there for an engagement session … any takers?! Thank you for having us & driving us around in your truck, Amy!

2014 Engagements in Review

In light of Valentine’s day being just around the corner, I wanted to share some extra love with you.  I tell my couples time & time again; engagement sessions are my FAVORITE. I love getting to hang out with them, chat, and document their love – no pressures added, just cuddles, kisses and laughter. These are some of my favorite engagement photos from 2014 – these images make my heart smile! From parks to coffee shops, each session showed some personality & so much happiness. I can’t wait to document these couples’ weddings in 2015 & capture more of their wonderful relationship! Are you newly engaged? Give me a call – I am accepting a few more weddings for 2015 & am already booking into 2016 – let’s go on an adventure together!

Rosehill Community Center // Mukilteo Wedding

2015 has been off to a crazy start! We doubled the number of weddings we are shooting in 2015 in the first few days of the year – I am thrilled to get to be a part of so many wonderful couples’ celebrations! Our new bookings will be taking us to Seattle, Sumner, Tacoma, Woodinville & even Port Townsend. I can’t wait to start taking their engagement photos & ramp up for the season. Since I am in a bit of a down time editing-wise, I have finally had a moment to go back to a couple of weddings from last summer that I photographed with my friend, Jordan, of Jordan Quinn Photography! I love getting to shoot with my photographer friends – being a second shooter is a total blast – I get to focus on details & those special moments that I might not catch as a lead. I can document non-traditional angles & and spend extra time with guests, or in the case of this wedding – the adorable flower girl! I love getting to see how my friends work & learn from their shooting style. I even got to assist Jordan the following day at the same venue – more on that fabulous wedding soon! Here are just a few of the shots I got at Katie & Chad’s wedding at Rosehill Community Center in Mukilteo. It was a joy getting to second for this particular wedding as Katie & Chad are dear friends of Jordan and I’ve gotten to hang with them over the past couple of years as well. They are such a wonderful couple & I wish them all the best in their marriage! It was a hot hot August day but Katie killed it in her gorgeous one shoulder gown & I loved how the blush bridesmaid dresses blew in the summer breeze. An ice cream bar is my all time favorite dessert for weddings (we even had one at our own wedding) & the sunset pulled out all the stops for their evening portraits. Rosehill Community Center was such a stunning venue – I hope have a wedding there again soon! Cheers!
