Stephanie + David

We are never to old to play dress up, right? Meet David and Stephanie. They are some of the most generous, thoughtful and compassionate hearts around Tacoma. They are celebrating their 10-year anniversary this year and wanted to do something unique and fun!

So they decided to go to an amazing costume shop in Tacoma and picked out two fantastic outfits for a late 1800s look. They rented out the Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad museum. The Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad is a steam-powered heritage railroad operating in Washington State between Elbe and Mineral.  We got to have private access with the iconic Polson 70 Locomotive out on the railroad tracks and access to the Rod House and House of Gears where other timeless trains were located.This anniversary shoot was such a blast! The Guptill’s are full of joy and deep adoration for each other, which made for easy models! Happy Anniversary Stephanie and David!

Commencement Bay Engagement Shoot

Tacoma, WA

Andrea and Darrin live in beautiful downtown Tacoma overlooking Commencement Bay. So what better than to have their engagement shoot on the water where they enjoy spending sunny afternoons with friends?! Darrin proposed to Ande on his parents 50th wedding anniversary and they have been keeping it a secret until these photos were ready! These two are marked with lots of laughter and authenticity. It was a joy and honor to be able to capture this new season of life for them! Congratulations Andrea and Darrin!

Javier

Tacoma, WA

Meet my good friend Javie! We met in Switzerland a few years ago and have been to about a dozen countries together across Europe, the Pacific, Middle East and North America. He is an incredible human being and more men should followed his example and lead. It has been such a blast to spend time with him the past few weeks in Seattle and Canada! One of our good friends got married last weekend in BC and Javie was in the wedding party. So it has been fun to celebrate a friends union and country hop again with this guy! Javie is a talented musician and has a deep compassionate heart for the nations. He is one of those friends who you want to run with long-term and I am happy call him friend!
