I’m so excited to kick off the 2019 wedding season with this gorgeous Lake Chelan engagement session! Even though the orchards and vineyards are still bare, we took advantage of the amazing lakeside and mountaintop scenery that the area has to offer. You really can’t find a “bad location” over here friends, I love our […]

One of the many things I love about living in the Pacific Northwest is how insanely happy the residents get when spring arrives. Those first days of sun after we’ve made it through the wet and cold winter is pure euphoria. To our Southern Californian or East Coast friends we maaaay come across as a […]

I met sweet Summer a year or so back at an extended family shoot. I knew her big brother and sister-in-law and we all had a great time on her grandpa’s farm out in the lush back country of Arlington, WA. When I received an email from Summer about her July wedding it took me […]

This past Labor Day weekend many people were gearing up for back to school and the start of fall festivities, but Matt and Brandi were getting hitched! It was a glorious first day of September and particularly full of hilarious song, laughter, tears and overwhelming love at this sweet Snohomish wedding.

I had the pleasure of taking the Johnson’s family pictures last fall and they’re such a sweet and happy bunch! Hannah and I actually attended high school together which makes it all the more wonderful to see her family grow. Her husband Levi, and her 2 year old Elliot, are expecting a baby sister in […]

  A Memorial Weekend Wedding at Lake Wilderness Lodge in Maple Valley, Washington I met Jenny and Zach at an extended family shoot last fall. As we were enjoying the brewery at Dairyland, Jenny approached me and asked if I did wedding photography. I said, “I haven’t yet, but I really want to!” And this […]

Before I dove into my first year of weddings I wanted to create a beautiful editorial styled boho wedding to inspire my brides and get my creative juices flowing.
