Tipsoo-Lake-Mt-Rainier-Wildflowers-Wedding-Photographer-Seattle-Photography-1pinimage

Karla & Greg drove up from Portland to have me photograph their wedding portraits at Mt Rainier National Park. With all the forest fires this summer, there was still a haze in the air, so we were unable to view Mt Rainier. But we were hiking around Tipsoo Lake during peak bloom for the wildflowers, and the sights were stunning. During their session they read their wedding vows to each other. I asked Karla what her favorite line from her vows were, she replied with, “Greg, I love you, and choose you to be my husband”. Simple and so profound.

Elizabeth & Joel met in college during their freshman year in an english class. The professor made an ironic prediction that the person who you sit next to on a field trip to the Seattle Repertory Theater could very well be who we spend the rest of your lives with. Guess who Elizabeth sat next to? Eight years later on a beautiful sunny day in Seattle, they got married on the lawn of the Groom’s family home. Clear blue water and the Olympic mountains were the backdrop to their ceremony, their aisle lined with vibrant florals arranged by the Bride’s sister. Before sunset, we hurried down to the beach to catch the last few rays of sun. And I’m so glad we did. Because amidst all the joyous chaos that makes up a wedding day, we found peace for a moment by the waves.

1-Capitol-Hill-rooftop-Engagement-Session-seattle-wedding-photographerpinimage

I met Elizabeth & Joel just two days before their wedding!!! Currently they are living in Texas while Elizabeth is working on her Masters (and Phd). However, Seattle is their home. Elizabeth & Joel wanted to get to know me a little more before their big day and saw an engagement session as the perfect opportunity to do so. Planning a wedding long distance can be a challenge, and I’m so glad they didn’t skip the engagement session. I love photographing engagements (duh!), providing my couples with images of their day to day look is so fun, and I find photographing a couple before the wedding day helps everyone feel more relaxed for the wedding portraits.

We met at one of their favorite date night spots, sushi at Momiji! After sushi we walked around Capitol Hill, stopped by their old campus and where they met at Seattle University, and then headed to watch the sunset on a rooftop.

Spending the evening with Samantha and Joseph was so much fun! These two love to explore, dance, and laugh together! And I got to capture all of that during their engagement session at sunset at Richmond Beach Saltwater Park. They recently moved to Seattle, and wanted their engagement session to show off all that Pacific Northwest beauty. They met salsa dancing! Which of course is the most romantic story ever, if you ask me.

diablo-lake-elopement-seattle-wedding-photographer-bhldn-photography-hiking-adventure_0001pinimage

A few weeks ago I headed into the mountains to photograph a styled elopement. After years of photographing weddings, I wanted to offer something special and specific for the needs of my elopement clients. With styling by Jen Lagers, and florals from Shelby Bond, we are now offering a wedding collection specifically for elopements. This shoot was a celebration of this collection, and also a great excuse to photograph some of BHLDN’s gowns, and the incredibly talented Krisanna Elizabeth’s new handmade and calligraphed vow books. If you’re planning on eloping in Seattle, the Northwest, or further, it would be my honor to witness and photograph your wedding.
