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!

2014 Weddings in Review

Hello hello! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season – Kevin, Lemon & I were crazy busy traveling during the last couple weeks (oh, and we MOVED!) so I am just now getting to share some of my favorite images from 2014 weddings with you! Is it just me or did 2014 come and go REALLY quickly? This year was full of creative, fun, modern & classic couples. There were some drop dead gorgeous ladies & some darn handsome men. We traveled hundreds of miles from east coast to west coast by car & plane, & gatored to Shout (favorite). I even got married myself! We got to shoot at a few more than once (Laurel Creek Manor, Lord Hill Farms, Pickering Barn – I’m lookin’ at you!) and had our fill of dazzling sparkler exits. These couples have been featured on numerous blogs, websites & magazines and I am feeling all of the love & encouragement from the Seattle wedding industry as I grow my roots deeper into the beautiful Pacific Northwest.  I am so thankful to have gotten to be a part of so many happy days this year – my couples are beyond wonderful & my heart is full re-living their days! Cheers to all of you!

These people… this love… Let me tell you, we had a BLAST! Here’s to celebrating even more joy in 2015!

We are quickly booking up dates for 2015 & 2016! If you or someone you know is engaged, email me at meredith@meredithmckee.com – I’d love to hear from you!

Whistler for the Holidays

The Pacific Northwest continues to amaze me with its beauty! We traveled up to Whistler, BC for Christmas and had a wonderful time playing in the snow, warming up by the fire & snowboarding down olympic-worthy mountains. Lemon absolutely loved romping through the snow and attempted to eat her body weight in snow every time we went outside (it was nearly impossible to take a photo of her). Kevin, his dad, sister, her boyfriend & I rode down fantastic snow the first two days we were there – Blackcomb mountain was surprisingly not crowded & had some great runs for us to warm up our snowboarding muscles on. Santa found his way to our condo in the Village & delivered too much candy, but we made sure to walk it off exploring the area at night. I, of course, had to take advantage of the gorgeous scenery & stole some shots of Erica, Ryan & the two Cavaliers, Chip & Lemon. I hope you all are enjoying the holiday season & staying warm – we are headed out on the road again tomorrow to northern Idaho to visit more family! 2015 is shaping up to be a fabulous year & I can’t wait to continue to grow my photography business! Cheers!

Winter Beach Engagement Session

Who says you can’t go to the beach in the winter? I loved getting to document Tracey & Brice’s engagement on the shores of the Puget Sound last month. Tracey works part time at Anthropologie, so it was no surprise that her outfits for the session were on point – the cloudy skies coordinated perfectly with their casual white & blue color scheme! Your ensembles don’t have to be over the top to make an impression – especially during an engagement session when the photos are all about your love! Congratulations you two – best of luck planning your Texan nuptials!

What better way to warm up after our shoot than with a hot cup of coffee? I absolutely love the look of Cafe Umbria in Ballard! Perfect exposed brick walls, broken-in leather couches & authentic Italian pottery coffee mugs!

Kevin & I are busy busy prepping & moving over to our new apartment before we head to Whistler for Christmas (and then Idaho for new years!) – Lots of trim to paint, pictures to hang & diy projects to complete in the coming weeks, but we are so excited to make this spot our new home! Wishing all of you loads of merrymaking this holiday season! Cheers!
