Sun Juan Island Elopement
I had the opportunity to travel to Friday Harbor and photograph Hilary and John's special elopement on this perfect little island. These two were so calm and comfortable and couldn't take their eyes off of each other. It was so magical to spend an entire afternoon with them and be able to soak in every moment of this special time. They had planned out every little detail down to her bouquet and his boutonniere from Pelindaba Lavendar, an awesome Pendelton blanket for their ceremony, fun socks, champagne on the beach, "just married" paint pens for their car and so many other thoughtful little touches. Hilary and John- I will never forget this day and I am so honored that you let me be a part of this with you!

Backyard Beach Wedding
This couple lucked out with a totally gorgeous day out on the beach for this PNW wedding at their family home!
Baker Creek Place
These pictures bring a huge smile to my face every time I look at them. I am so blessed to have worked with these two and to have had the chance to meet their heartwarming friends and family. We did our engagement session together in Portland that included GIANT balloons, a skittle fight and my favorite Broadway Bridge. These two know how to throw a party and their loved ones were all right their by their side to make this day perfect.

It turned out to be an absolutely gorgeous day at Lairmont Manor in Bellingham, Washington to celebrate Kellie and Scott tying the knot. After working with them several months ago for their engagement shoot in Fairhaven, Washington I knew their day was going to be a lot of fun. These two have such a carefree, silly and playful relationship- it's really a delight to be around them. After a few shots around the manor they wanted to make their way down to Fairhaven for some group shots. We happened upon an impromptu salsa dancing class in the middle of the plaza, so naturally we took advantage of this and it was so fun to watch their favorite group of friends all bust a move :) A full day of big smiles, silly friends, big families, cute babies and an absolutely gorgeous ceremony is definitely one for the books! Thank you for sharing it with us Kellie and Scott!
Whatcom Museum and Whatcom Lightcatcher Museum
These two museums were the most fantastic wedding venue combination. Brandon's love for museums and Brianna's love for color and fun were so perfectly matched here and gave me so many unique and amazing backdrop options! The color exhibit that was live at this time was completely breathtaking and the spunky personalities of Brianna and Brandon made the day so easy going and playful <3
I met Cory last summer at a bar in Bellingham that actually no longer exists (RIP The Fountain). We drank cocktails and cracked jokes. It felt like meeting up with a long time friend. She told me she had found me through a friend of hers. This friend actually followed MY friend who creates beautiful hand-stamped flatware and sells it on Etsy. She found my name through some of my photos of these flatware pieces and told Cory to call me. Cory reached out and I am so so happy she did. Life is funny, right?
SO THEN: I met two of the best people ever.
This couple is SO so easy and fun to be around, completely and obviously in love with each other and so passionate about their lives. Cory is lighthearted, funny and determined. Chad has a giant heart and a way of making each person he meets really feel appreciated- Not to mention he's a kick-ass craftsman (their wedding venue never could have happened without him!) They make a great team.
We got to talking about their engagement session and they told me they wanted to hang out for an entire day on their boat and hop on over to an island real quick. Um, what? YEP. We made our way to Sucia Island and spent the day drinking beer, playing on the beach and wrangling their crazy (and adorable) dogs. For their wedding? Well, what better place to have it than in their own backyard!? These two worked tirelessly for months to prep their first home together for a giant celebration- And IT RULED. You killed it Cory and Chad! Only to top it all off on a giant boat ride around Bellingham Bay. I mean, why not?
Cory and Chad: We love you. Thank you for these fantastic memories. I will treasure them. <3

Pine River Ranch
We had the most amazing weekend photographing Rachel and Brent's wedding at Pine River Ranch in Leavenworth, Washington. This venue is so beautiful and hosts SO many gorgeous backdrops. We ended up with the most perfect weather and these two were glowing. I have known Rachel and Brent since they started dating back in high school, so it was an honor to be there to watch them tie the knot.
Thank you for including us in your special day and congratulations Rachel and Brent! You are the most lovely couple!

Samson Estates Winery
Jardin Del Sol
Sara and Jeremy happened to have their big day RIGHT in the middle of the greater Seattle area's giant windstorm this summer- and these two didn't skip a beat. These giant, beaming smiles were glued to their faces all night. It was beautiful.
Jardin Del Sol is one of my very favorite wedding venues in the Snohomish area. We were thrilled to have the chance to be there again! So many beautiful colors were incorporated into the decor, homemade desserts by a dear friend, hula-hoops, a few umbrellas and that stormy day couldn't have been more perfect <3
Thanks for everything, Sara and Jeremy! We won't forget you (or your little crab friend, either!)

Downtown Fairhaven and Ferry Terminal
These two sweethearts got married at the Bellingham Ferry Terminal a few weekends ago and it turned out to be the most GORGEOUS fall day to wander the streets of Bellingham and Fairhaven. I met Katja and Joel way back last fall and their laid back spirit and big, giant grins had me all giddy to get them in front of my lens. They were surrounded by so many wonderful people, great food, cute dogs and you could stop smiling.

North Bend, Washington
Allison and Jon started their day with a gorgeous ceremony at their church in Issaquah followed by a fantastic reception out at Bybee Farms near Issaquah, Washington. I absolutely LOVED the color combo of their big day with fabulous flowers from Kristen of Full Aperture Floral. We stopped at a bridge at the base of Mount Si for a few photos before playing in the blueberry fields!
Eek!! I have been looking forward to Holly and Mili's wedding for MONTHS! I can't believe I finally get to make this post and show all of you how perfect it was. These two had everything planned out SO well and incorporated their theme in so many fun and creative ways. The wedding took place at Central Cinema in Seattle, Washington and the cinema staff went above and beyond to make their day special. From personalizing the marquee outside the theater, to signs and posters all over the inside and handing them their first glass of champagne as they came back down the aisle- Big props to the cinema team! Beautiful flowers, 3D glasses, popcorn and beloved theater snacks.. this was a really beautiful day. I loved being a part of this adventure- Thank you Holly and Mili! Congratulations!

The Fremont Foundry
This couple fell right in love with the industrial look of this venue and it fit their personalities and passions so well! This venue is so unique and provided so many beautiful textures, backgrounds and interesting light! Plus, you can't beat being a chocolate shop down the street from your wedding day :)
Woodstock Farm You remember these two cuties!? I can't believe how quickly time flies. We photographed their wedding back in September at Woodstock Farms in Bellingham, Washington. It turned out to be the most beautiful day on the bay. It was such an absolute honor to photograph Andrea and Scott's wedding day and to meet all their family and friends. I would be lying if I didn't admit to crying multiple times throughout their day myself! Such sweet friends who have so much obvious love for these two. Cheers to a beautiful future together, you two!!

This spunky couple had their small, intimate celebration on New Years Eve at this beautiful old manor in Bellingham, WA. It was so full of love and TONS of adorable little kids :)
What a beautiful day to spend galavanting around the apple orchards of BelleWood Acres last weekend with these two lovebirds and their crew! This venue has one of the best views of Mt. Baker and hosts a great outdoor area. Rebecca and Jeff had put so much forethought into the little details of their day and it all came together beautifully. A day filled with gorgeous flowers, handmade light covers made from egg cartons, cupcakes, a pizza food truck, a cake cutting cake SMASH, a giant apple orchard and families and friends that so obviously love each other. Thank you for letting us celebrate with you Rebecca and Jeff! Congratulations <3
Shuksan Golf Course
This adorable couple and their big day came to me by incredible happenstance- And I feel so lucky that it did. We had so much fun hanging out with these two at Shuksan Golf Course in July playing in the sun (and dodging golf balls!). Congratulations, love birds!

The RiverPlace Hotel
Wedding on the Portland waterfront?? Yes indeed! Marissa and Tim held their ceremony at the RiverPlace Hotel in downtown Portland, Oregon right on the Willamette River. Marissa and Tim hold Portland in a special place in their hearts, so we tied the city in just as much during their wedding day as we did with their engagement session in May! I love shooting in this beautiful city and this couple certainly knows how to throw a party- check out the full group shot on the end!
Marissa and Tim.. You make a great team.

Center for Wooden Boats
What an absolutely AMAZING day!!! Shannon and Ed share a love for the Center for Wooden Boats in downtown Seattle and IT IS SO RAD. I grew up in the Seattle area and never even knew about this place- So cool. I knew from the moment these two asked me to grab a beer after their engagement session at the Mukilteo Lighthouse that we were going to be friends and I couldn't wait to be a part of their day!
Shannon and Ed have this fantastic little love story as to how the two of them met while living on the east coast- They had seen each other on public transit and locked eyes, but never ended up actually meeting that day. It wasn't until they had posted in the Missed Connections ads online that they ended up reconnecting!!!! With both of them coming from very different geographical locations, many of their family members didn't have the chance to meet until their wedding day. This crowd got along famously!
I love this story and am so happy to have been a part of this big love adventure. Congratulations Shannon and Ed!!!
Syd + Pat at Jardin Del Sol
I fell in love with this venue immediately upon laying eyes on it- Everything is so lush and cozy! The greenery and the winding paths that lead throughout the space provide such an intimate and unique space. Pat and Syd totally rocked their bag day at Jardin Del Sol in Snohomish, Washington and it was a total delight to be a part of it. These two have the biggest hearts and it was obvious throughout the night that the people who attended this event meant a great deal to them. Personal touches from the bride were sprinkled throughout the entire night and their send-off had everyone smiling!
Find more of these photos on the blog here!
This crazy little venue has so many amazing things to offer- A rooftop deck, a giant amazing fish tank, unique decor and a really cool location near downtown Seattle. The bride herself painted that gorgeous backdrop and these two were so clearly in love. I was so happy to be a part of this day. <3
Moran State Park
Orcas Island, San Juan Islands, WA
These two had an incredibly small and really sweet ceremony out at Moran State Park with their closest friends and family. It was a perfect day in October to see some fall colors and celebrate the PNW!
Chris and Lea tied the knot in an awesome country style, backyard wedding on a gorgeous day in the Pacific Northwest! Hay bails, BBQ, beer and two of the cutest little girls you've ever seen! This day was so relaxed, happy and sweet. Thank you for letting me be a part of it- Cheers! <3

Vista Hills Vineyard
Michelle and Dave chose the beautiful Vista Hills Vineyard in McMinville, Oregon for their big day. What an absolutely beautiful venue space!! I had the pleasure of shooting their engagement session last summer in Cannon Beach, Oregon while we bonded over chocolate, raspberries and wine in the sand. This couple can always make me laugh and have such big hearts. It was a real honor to spend the day with them! A BIG thanks to the lovely Swoon Floral Design and fantastic coordination by Katie Zuniga.
Wow, this venue is breathtaking! Find more of this beauty on the blog!
Sammy and Andrew are two of the kindest people I have ever met. It was so fun to spend their day with them and to get to know them over the course of planing their big day. From donut holes to giggles, this day was full of fun!
The Royal Kona Hotel
I still can't believe that I had such an amazing opportunity to be there to capture Lenzi and Chris's big day in Hawaii. We spent the entire day at the gorgeous Royal Kona Resort with warm weather, blue water, sea breeze, sand, surf and Hawaiian drinks!

This turned out to be a totally beautiful day down in Seattle at Golden Gardens! This really intimate and sweet ceremony was full of so much love and adorable detail work all coordinated by the bride herself.

Mt. Vernon, Washington
I developed a small crush on fall weddings this year… and the colors that came out to play on Mandi and Vince's wedding day will be hard to beat. This was such a beautiful, fun and intimate day. A small ceremony at one of my favorite local venues, Maplehurst Farm, a gorgeous reception in their spacious and beautiful barn and plates full of homemade food, fork full after fork full of pie and a full dance floor.
