Bowen & Marah

Bothell, WA

Bowen and Marah are engaged! My husband and I first met Bowen two years ago and he became part of our church family quickly after. Marah came into the picture pretty soon after that. Surprisingly, their moms dubiously tried to set them up, and kept trying to have them hang out. So Bowen ended up inviting Marah to a Kardia event. She quickly got plugged into our community and then all of the sudden we noticed Bowen and Marah spending a lot more quality time together 😉 Later into the year they officially started to date and Bowen proposed last June!

We ventured to Ride N Shine Farm, where Bowen’s family keeps their horse, Poppy. Despite the crazy Washington summer weather, the clouds didn’t rain on us! We had a lot of fun and I even had a hard time not laughing with these two!

Bowen and Marah, you are both such generous and servant hearted people. You always desiring to learn and grow, which makes you strong leaders. You reflect a kindness and redemptive beauty in your lives. It is such an honor to be part of your story in a small way and to have watched your relationship blossom over this past year. I am thrilled for you both! I can’t wait to help officiate your wedding this October! Love you tons.

Jeff & Emma

Seattle, WA

Jeff & Emma met at their church and after a friendship started dating and now are engaged! I am excited to shoot their wedding this August in Monroe. We ventured to Discovery Park in Seattle that totes beautiful landscapes and a classic light house. We were just at the end of the warm spring day in Seattle, which made for a fantastic day to do engagement photos.

When I think of Emma & Jeff, this quote from Augustine comes to mind, “Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul.”. They have a pure, innocent and joyful love. You can see the adoration come out of them towards each other. I am excited for their future together! Congratulations Jeff & Emma!

Yoakum Wedding

Tacoma, WA

This was such a special wedding to me because I was able to photograph my mother-in-law! Joan and Darel were married at Foss Water Way Seaport in Tacoma. My husband, Trevor officiated their wedding and had us all in tears. My son, Ephraim helped walk the rings down the aisle and danced his heart out. We all were overwhelmed with joy and happiness. I am so blessed to have them as family! We love you!

Special thanks to Lindsay Brooke Photography for helping me shoot the wedding so I could wrangle my kiddos during the ceremony and reception.

Ryan & Kay Engagement

Tacoma, WA

Last summer I went down to Tacoma to shoot one of my longest, and best friends engagement photos! I have known Kay since kindergarten and she and her family are, family. She is like an adopted sister in our minds.  So to say how thrilled I am that she is getting married is an understatement. We went all over the city for this shoot, which made for some fun backgrounds. I am so happy for you guys and cannot wait for the wedding! (Which I get to officiate! WOO HOO!).
