Maddox Wedding

Brandan & Sam were married last July 6th in Elmira, Oregon which is just minutes outside of Eugene. Their wedding was hosted by Deep Wood Events which is situated in a majestic forested backdrop. Sam took months to create all of the florals for the bridal party and decor pieces, which were stunning! Every detail was laced with elegance and care.

This day was seriously one of the most joyful events I had the honor to capture. Brandan has one of the most infectious smiles and Sam is nothing short of fierce love. Together, they both light up the room and bring a deep sense of warmth, sparks of joy, comfort and love.

Their ceremony was so thoughtful and caring. Each detail curated, had us all in tears or laughter. Their bridal party championed them beyond anything I’ve seen before. What a day!

Congratulations Brandan and Sam!

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.
