Lin Family Mini Shoot

Seattle, WA

Piper has become a good friend and role-model when it comes to motherhood. She and Gary have four beautiful little children. Her littlest is a little younger than Ephraim, which has made for some fun play dates. This past year has been so fun to get to know their adorable little family more. Last December we ventured to the UW library on a foggy morning and around the common ground to do a quick mini-shoot – because how else can you keep young ones attention for more than 20 minutes? Good job Lin family!

Kaitlyn & Matt’s Wedding Day

Venue: Pine Creek Nursery & Cascade Community Church / Monroe, Washington

Matt & Kaitlyn were married on November 5th. A day that cleared in the middle of two days with snow! The heavens opened up just for them. This day was full of unique arbors, green houses and the stunning fall colors. Kaitlyn and her gals got ready in this amazing green house off her house and the couple did their first look and photos at Pine Creek Nursery under stunning canopies. Their bridal party was full of characters, happy laughter and gorgeous smiles. Later that afternoon, they had a heart warming ceremony and reception at Cascade Community Church. I love the background she chose for her ceremony and the custom made arbor Matt crafted that they said “I do” under. Take a moment to check out Matt’s precious face when Kaitilyn is walking down the isle – I about lost it too. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. McAuliffe; you both are treasures!

Getting Ready at the McAuliffe Wedding

Monroe, WA

Kaitlyn and Matt were married last weekend in Monroe. Their wedding was full of character and details. Today I started to sit down and go through some of the images from that day and Kaitlyn is just radiant in all of them. It is hard to just show you a few! I cannot wait to share more of their beautiful day. Yet, some of my favorite moments of a wedding are when the bride is getting ready with her favorite gals and her mom. There is such a tenderness in the hours before the first look and ceremony. Plus, I LOVED being able to photograph in Kaitlyn’s adorable green house that was attached to her home. The morning dew and crisp fall day made for a beautiful back drop!
