Brooke and Tyler are two of the best humans ever. We did a mini session shortly after Tyler’s proposal, and later shot a sweet engagement session in their Seattle home. Today marks their one month of wedded bliss, and I’m celebrating with a blog post. Cheers, kids!

1:00 pm
Caitlin and Apollo celebrated their wedding in such a special way.  They invited their family and friends to hike with them to their wedding site- a waterfall in Oregon- and their loved ones circled around them as they exchanged vows. After the ceremony they toasted with champagne and cupcakes in the gorge before hiking out. I can’t say enough how incredible it is when couples are thoughtful about the type of celebration that  best represents them. It was so evident that Caitlin and Apollo had thought through what mattered to them, and their day was absolutely incredible because of it.

Meet the Hackworth’s: some of my all-time favorite people to photograph. Katie and her precious family let me snap some photos of them in their beautiful home, which is always such a treat. I can’t believe how big their girls are getting- it’s been so special to document the different phases of their growth over the years. These are sweet times.

Suzy and Ian exchanged vows in Lake Tahoe, surrounded by gorgeous pines, mountains, wildflowers, and their dear ones. It was the perfect setting for their beautiful dinner party and celebration- elegant, sweet, and nature-inspired.

A favorite frame from a recent wedding on a blueberry farm. Always love it when my couples steal away for some of that soft, golden light.

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

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

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!

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
