On a bright summer day in Seattle, Trisha & Hunter said “I do” on the waterfront at the Ballard Bay Club, with perfect views of the Olympic Mountains, surrounded by their family. The couple spent time just the two of them before their wedding ceremony started at the Olympic Sculpture Park. I photographed their wedding day portraits at the same location that Hunter proposed! After their intimate ceremony, the couple invited friends to join their family for their reception. It was a fun celebration, with wonderful food, drinks, and lawn games. Before the sun set, I took some of my favorite photos of the newlyweds. A moment I hope they’ll always remember when they watch the sunset many times in the years to come.

This was a wonderful day. Karly & Peter had their engagement session at Cape Disappointment State Park. We started at North Head Lighthouse, and ventured on from there. It was windy and bright, clouds rolling in and out throughout the day. Karly has spent every summer on the beaches in Ilwaco, lost in a novel, or hearing stories from her grandmother about their family history. This place was so much more than a beautiful location, but has a history that I was so delighted to hear about, as I got to spend time photographing this truly lovely couple. I’m excited for their October wedding.

Richmond-Beach-Saltwater-Park-Engagement-Session-Engaged-Wedding-Photographer_0002pinimage

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.
