Wow! On a very sunny day in Northern California, I had the honor of photographing this Bride & Groom’s wedding day. I can’t even begin to describe all the events of this day, from Janelle & Quinton’s first look, to their getaway ON A BOAT! I’m so not even joking, they left their reception, on. a. boat. Fairytale. 1-Seattle-Wedding-Photographer-Photography-by-Betty-Elaine-River-House-Getting-Ready

I photographed a beautiful (and fun, and wonderful, and amazing) wedding in Historic Downtown Snohomish recently. Congratulations Travis & Alexia! I am in love with this wedding. Isn’t Alexia a stunning bride? This has got to be my favorite wedding dress right now

Seattle-wedding-photographer-Sacramento-Grand-Isle-Mansion-Historic-Bride-Groom-photos_0001 Seattle-wedding-photographer-Sacramento-Grand-Isle-Mansion-Historic-Bride-Groom-photos_0002 I was in Sacramento, CA this weekend for this Seattle couple’s destination wedding at the Historic Grand Island Mansion. These newlyweds are happily enjoying their honeymoon by now. So until I am ready to blog more photography from their wedding day, I just had to share this photo of the radiant Bride & Groom and their breathtaking wedding venue. It truly was a magical day.

It was a beautiful day in Seattle at the Washington Park Arboretum. I love how laid back, fun, and adventurous these two were. Emily & Raymond even climbed a willow tree with me to capture some of my favorite engagement photos! It made for a really amazing evening.

Get ready for a MEGA blog post! Kayla & Brett had a stunning wedding day in June. I have had so much fun getting to know this Bride & Groom (remember this fun bicycle engagement!), and was excited to fly out of Seattle to witness and photograph their marriage. From ceremony through reception, the details are charming. They even wrote their own beautiful personal vows for their ceremony.
