Alisha + Tom | Golden Gardens Engagement

March 25th, 2019 | Golden Gardens, Seattle, WA

I’ve known Alisha and Tom for a couple years now and they are truly a blessing! They’re always so fun to be around and there’s never a moment where I’m not laughing or smiling. I first met them for their maternity shoot, then their family photos a year later. Within the past couple months, they reached out saying they got engaged and asked if I could capture their wedding! So here we are again, another amazing milestone for these two! Well, actually two milestones… They announced their second baby is on the way! So excited and I can’t wait for their Wedding in April! Still can’t get over how perfect of a sunset we caught at the beach.

 

Kelly + Jordan | Seattle Engagement

March 2nd, 2019 | Gasworks Park & Discovery Park, WA

This couple was so much fun! We got super lucky with the weather being in between snow storms and and showers. It was a gorgeous sunny day and that warm glow of the sunrise over downtown Seattle. We started at Gasworks park where Jordan had proposed then headed off to Discovery Park where we captured some amazing views with that morning haze. I’m super stoked about these two! They were genuinely nice and amazing people! What a way to kick off the 2019 Wedding Season!

 

Check out this beautiful video the of these two! 

 
 

Lauren + Chris | Belltown Elopement

September 29th, 2018 | Belltown Seattle, WA

Lauren and Chris live and LA, their parents live in Chicago, and they wanted something less familiar. Eloping to the Pacific Northwest was a beautiful way to capture the scenic cityscapes from a friend’s rooftop in Belltown! They were so fun and such a beautiful couple! The best part of this day was that we walked down through Pike Place Market in her wedding dress and picked out her bouquet less than 30 minutes before their ceremony! I’m absolutely in love with how the photos turned out! It’s full of rich city life and amazing moments between the two!

 

Milena + Brad | Snoqualmie Engagement

September 28th, 2018 | Snoqualmie, WA

Milena and Brad found me on The Knot and told me their beautiful story. They’ve always wanted a mountain elopement, but they had so much pulling them to have a wedding back in Chicago. Instead, they wanted to have their engagement session done in the mountains, so we ventured up to Snoqualmie, found a beautiful valley side and river and made beautiful images! They were super adventurous and were down to hike and climb to get the best locations. For the end of September, it was a great way to finish off one of the last sunny days in the PNW.

 

Malissa + Andrew

September 20, 2018 | Discovery Park

Malissa is a super rad individual who found herself a prince. Malissa worked at Zulily with me at the time and when I found out that their wedding photographer had left the country for 6 months and they wouldn’t have been able to get their engagement photos taken, I offered to help out! We got so lucky with the weather! It was supposed to rain, but it didn’t. Although, we were kinda waiting for the Notebook scene to come. Regardless, they’re a beautiful couple!

 

Neha + Brian | Intimate Whidbey Island Wedding

August 25, 2018 | Whidbey Island

When Neha and Brian reached out to me, I was super thrilled and honored. They didn’t want the elaborate wedding and they didn’t want something to show off. They just wanted an intimate wedding with the people who mean the most to them: family. Amongst the smoke, we had a little rain early in the day which opened up the cliffside in the distance which made for a beautiful Pacific Northwest backdrop. The ceremony was sweet and intimate as each family member blessed them on their future together. From amazing views to a wonderful espresso martini to finish off the night, this was definitely one of the most memorable weddings I’ve been to. It’s just so much more emotionally powerful when it’s intimate.

 

Hannah + Kyle | In Home Session

August 18, 2018 | Mercer Island

Hannah is inspiration. Her story is incredible and her will is strong. When I first met her, she was going through hardships and trying to start a new life. After years of fighting, she found her new beginning. She explained to me that her last 'couples' photoshoot was with her ex and wasn't real and behind the smile was fear and anger. Meeting Kyle has been a saving grace; she smiles truthfully and loves authentically. She asked me to capture that and I'm honored to have been there to document a bright moment in her life!

Alix + Mike | Vineyard Wedding

August 10th, 2018 | Lake Chelan, WA

Alix and Mike were one of the most energetic couples I’ve ever met! They had so much excitement and energy throughout the day and it made for one of the most fun weddings I’ve ever shot. Having the venue be at Karma Vineyards was by far a treat! With beautiful views ever way you turn, it was amazing how much I could capture standing from one spot. This wedding, however, landed right in the midst of all the wild fires near by and clouded the sky with smoke. At one point, it looked like it was snowing with all the ash falling. It made for an eerie sky, but it didn’t affect us. And, honestly, I added a dimension to the photo that you’ll never see elsewhere!
