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!).

Jake & Aly Engagement

Tacoma, WA

We chased the sun and dodged the rain with this engagement shoot. After a few cancelled sessions and rescheduling the rain settled down last week and we were finally able to head down to Owens Beach area. I couldn’t seem to cut this post down on images…so sorry if you have terrible internet and this post seems to take 5 minutes to load, but it is worth the wait! Aly and Jake are some of the most clever and cunning individuals who effortlessly seem to make you laugh with their humor.  Jake is impressively good at trivia and Aly doesn’t shy away from a good witty joke. I had a blast with these two and I look forward to watching them grow into a life long journey together! Congratulations Aly and Jake!

Kelly & Bobby’s Engagement

Seattle, WA

Bobby & Kelly met at a Relay for Life event a few years ago and have never looked back. I love this quote from Ann Landers, I believe it describes Kelly & Bobby’s relationship well.  “Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses”. I can’t wait to shoot their wedding in August! Congratulations Kelly & Bobby!

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!
