I don’t get to photograph seniors often, but when I do it is the BEST. Meet Madi, the babeliest of all seniors. (Who, by the way, made that flower crown from scratch.) Madi is just the sweetest soul and I’m so glad we got to spend the evening running through flower fields together. A few of my favorite frames. xo

11:30 am
Marie and Dan celebrated their wedding with gorgeous details, a heartfelt ceremony, and the most delicious dinner party imaginable. But what I loved most of all is that the two of them feel more like dear friends than clients, and with that, the day left a deep impression of joy. Thank you, Marie and Dan, for making my job so very sweet. xo

Kristina and Josh, along with their amazing coordinator Rhi from Hey Gorgeous Events, made a dream team for this engagement shoot! We started with photos at their home (always a personal favorite), and then Kristina worked her way into a gorgeous Free People dress as we moved outdoors. Rhi designed and styled the florals because she is insanely talented, and the four of us ended up at Hot Cakes after our shoot, which is always a sign of sweet victory. Kristina and Josh are such a lovely couple- I’m so looking forward to photographing their wedding at Sodo Park next year!

10:00 am
My dear friends Brooke and Tyler just got engaged, and we snapped a few photos around Ballard before getting celebratory drinks! I’m so excited for their official engagement shoot…these two are the real deal. They’ve been such good and solid friends to me- Brooke celebrated me with my own little engagement toasting not too long ago! These are the insanely good moments when work and real life hold hands, and I’m thankful for all the goodness that comes from it. xo

9:28 am
Amy and Adam celebrated their wedding at a gorgeous home overlooking Pasadena. Amy made all of her stunning wedding Jewelry, and her amazing taste was so clearly reflected in the beauty and elegance of the day. (Amy also made my own engagement ring, so working with her has been doubly special!!) I can’t say enough good things about these two- getting to photograph them during their sweet season was such a treat. xo

Kelsey and Owen’s wedding was my first trip to Alaska, and it absolutely did not disappoint! The backdrop for their day was incredibly gorgeous- we were nestled high above Anchorage at the Alpenglow Lodge in Arctic Valley, and their ceremony looked out over the mountaintops. Kelsey wore a blue dress that her grandmother chose for her (coolest grandma ever), and they danced the night away under a canopy of paper stars. Cheers to the very sweetest couple.

8:56 am
Linnea and Evan chose the gorgeous Frederick Loewe Estate  for their wedding- a mid century modern dream in the Little Tuscany neighborhood of Palm Springs.  Their day felt like a glamorous pool party, complete with delicious cocktails and a killer view. Linnea wore two amazing dresses, and their guests channeled Mad Men mixed with springtime. It was a fabulous day. xo

Jordan and Billy’s wedding was gorgeous from start to finish. They celebrated at Ravenswood in Chicago- a city that holds significance and meaning for both of them- and as Jordan happens to be an incredible photographer, I was beyond honored that she would ask me to photograph it! Their ceremony included creative and thoughtful moments, such as passing the wedding rings through all the guests for a special blessing. Their reception was filled with plenty laughter, toasting, and amazing food; we’re talking burgers, sweet potato fries, and even chicken & waffles. It doesn’t get much better than that. A big thanks to my lovely assistant // second shooter Rebecca Butler, who came all the way from Florida for Jordan and Billy’s day! And of course Anna Held Floral Studio for the beautiful floral work. xo

Hannah and Jay are the kind of people you meet, instantly love, and spend the evening watching YouTube clips + eating pizza with. These two are immensely talented, kind and hilarious, which makes for the kind of photo shoot that I don’t want to end. We took some photos in their beautiful West Hollywood home, then headed to Ojai where their wedding will take place this fall. I’m so lucky that my clients feel like friends, and beyond grateful to see the joy in their connection. Cheers, Hannah + Jay!

Stephanie and Markus’ engagement shoot was such a treat. We dreamed up a session on the water with a vintage canoe, and the two of them rowed around the Puget Sound and explored Vashon Island together. The gorgeous garland was made out of eucalyptus, salal, amaranth and roses by the very talented Katherine of Marigold and Mint. Hooray for engagement season, and for these two lovely people who shared theirs with me!
