Rio Vista Winery Wedding

2 years ago I had the honor of being booked by a sweet couple living in the Midwest for university to shoot their Chelan Rio Vista Winery wedding in the summer or 2021. We had no idea that the in between time would be so insane! Firstly, in February 2020 my little family of four […]

In mid January 2020 we were approached by my husband’s work with an opportunity to move to Germany as soon as we could for 6 months to a year. We jumped at the opportunity, sold most of our large belongings, stored the rest, parked the cars, and flew our lives to Hamburg, Germany by February […]

The Moro wedding in Wenatchee, Washington was the most fitting wedding to end the year on. At our first meeting, Sedyrra and Gerald exuded so much peace, calm, and sweetness together.

Getting to know other photographer’s in the Chelan area has been such a treat! When you’re a photographer it is weirdly hard to have your pictures taken by another photographer because you think, “I can take pictures of everyone in my family exactly the way I want… It’s just that whole family photo part that’s […]

This fall mountain family photo session in Lake Chelan was just beautiful. But it wasn’t just the surrounding beauty and this gorgeous family that made it stand out to me.

It takes a really special person to plan and execute the most magical surprise in your happy place. When Ryan and Kaitlin came out Labor Day weekend to visit her grandparent’s in Chelan, Wa, you might think she would be expecting something.

Christy and Austin celebrated a gorgeous fall wedding in mid September at Rio Vista Winery in Chelan, Wa. Their ties to the local communities, between Waterville and Manson,

Where is your happy place? Since I was a little girl I’ve always loved Leavenworth, WA for the fun had with my sisters, and boyfriend/fiance/husband (he was forced into my happy place very often! Ha!) It was a summer destination full of laughs, water adventures, and good food. It’s amazing getting to live in Chelan, […]

One of the sweetest things to happen as a photographer is having clients sent my way from lovely past clients. Lizzie contacted me on a sunny Friday afternoon excitedly sharing she had just got engaged that week and was leaving the next for grad school in Missouri. She was wondering if they could squeeze in […]

Ladies and gentleman, may I present Summer and Dekker Lane! These lovebirds shared their sweet engagement with me in the most frigid of December temperatures and then their wedding in the hottest of July days. And might I say they rocked every second of those extremes! The two were married at Summer’s Grandfather’s place, Twin […]

If you’ve ever been to Lake Chelan, you might be surprised that this family session took place in the area, what with all the lush greenery! We found this spot down at the Beebee Springs Wildlife Area near the Columbia River on the outskirts of Lake Chelan. The winding gravel paths, green swaths of grass, […]

One of the initial most exciting things about moving to Lake Chelan for me were the bare rolling hills and mountains with incredible vistas everywhere you turned. My whole life I grew up around forests as far as you could see, or as far as your island reached. Don’t get me wrong, that western PNW […]
