Shiner Wedding

Olalla, WA

Beth & Doug were married at the Edgewater House a few weeks ago on a beautiful September day. This was a stunning venue right on the water. Their decor was nothing short of intimate details and stunning florals. I was obsessed with the succulent in her bouquet! This was such a fun day – from writing vows in a giant tub, many sentimental tears with family, a sassy flower girl, such close attention to details throughout the whole day, delightful food and dancing. This wedding truly was a magical day – congratulations Beth & Doug!

McCarville Wedding

Des Moines, WA

Kelly & Bobby were married August 8th at Des Moines Beach Park. Overlooking the beautiful Puget Sound, it was a perfect setting – despite the slight rain! They braved the fluke rain that happened during our summer heat stroke and just as their ceremony began, the rain stopped! A miracle to start off a happy marriage! Congratulations you guys!

Marry Me Weekend 2015

Tacoma, WA

Marry Me Weekend is wild. This is my second year photographing for free at this event and this packed weekend is unforgettable! Life Center Church puts on an incredible weekend for a handful of couples (this year 8!) who want to get married and fully understand the commitment, but for various reasons, can not plan their ceremony. They offer a beautiful free ceremony, flowers, photography and small reception with cake for all the couples that partake in this weekend. Photographing these couples was a complete joy and I wish you all much happiness as you continue your life together in this new covenant and journey! Congratulations Marry Me Weekend Couples!

Amber and Josh had a very intimate wedding at Salish Lodge that overlooks the Snoqualmie Falls. It was a breathtaking day as they said “I do” in an elegant room that overlooked the falls with their close family and friends. It was such an honor to be a part of their wedding day and I am so happy for them! Joy radiated over Amber and Josh and you can’t help but smile and laugh with them as they dedicated their life together – a life I know that is promised to be laced with happiness. Congratulations Amber & Josh!

D + B First Look

University Place, WA

Here are photos from Danica and Byron’s first look at Chambers Bay! This was the first wedding my husband Trevor and I shot together and he did a great job! Who knew it would be so fun to photograph with your own husband! Danica and Byron are great friends of ours and it is always such an honor to be a part of first looks, let a lone theirs. First looks are some of the most precious and beautiful times between a bride and groom. When they see each other, the whole world seems to disappear! Joy overflowed during this adorable moment!
