I love engagement sessions because relationships are valuable and worth documenting, not only on the wedding day. It is worth celebrating each milestone in your story together.  Sara & Eric love the PNW and adventuring outdoors – whether it’s skiing, hiking, mountain biking, or on the waterfront with their dog Keta, who of course loves swimming. After ten years of being together, this was the first time Sara & Eric had a photo session together! We had so much fun. We chose a location in Seattle that was special to them, a park they love to spend time at together not far from their home. We lucked out with a really warm sunny day in April, we stopped to take photos in a field littered with bluebells on our way to the waterfront. I photographed past sunset and into twilight when the moon came out. It was perfect.

Kristy & Jantzen eloped in February on a bright and cold winter day. The sun was beaming through the trees, and the river babbling during their ceremony was the only music needed amoung the trees at TreeHousePoint. It was a beautiful afternoon for a wedding, what a special day to cherish.

This romantic downtown wedding was classic Seattle. Overcast skies, a ceremony with stunning views of Elliott Bay as a backdrop, seagulls and ferries, cocktail hour on the terrace so you can take in the Seattle skyline, it was perfect and intimate. I second shot this wedding for Sean Carr, so this collection of images focuses portraits and details of the day. The bride and groom were laid back, and created such a beautiful and fun wedding for their friends and family.

My beginning of 2017 started off slowly. I was on maternity leave until the spring. When spring came, I was excited to start working again! I absolutely love photographing couples and weddings. I believe it’s important over your life time to remember where your adventure together started and your devotion to each other began, and photography is my tool to preserve memories, and tell stories.

I was happily all over the Northwest! From the Olympics, to the North Cascades, I’m loving the adventurous couples who’s proposals, engagements, weddings, and elopements I photographed! It’s such a joy. So here are my highlights of 2017!

TreeHouse Point is quintessential Northwest beauty, and also one of the most unique places you could stay (or get married!). The property has trails and bridges that lead you through forest of mossy trees and ferns, to several different tree houses. I had the opportunity to photograph this bridal session there, and I jumped at the chance! The rain would not let up, so in true PNW fashion, I photographed the entire session in the pouring rain. We styled a few simple details for elopement inspiration. And instead of featuring a traditional cake and dessert, we had a charcuterie and cheese platter! I will be back in 2018 to photograph elopement weddings, and I already can’t wait.
