Thomas Wedding

Monroe, WA

Jeff and Emma were married last August 24th. This is my second time venturing to the gorgeous Pine Creek Nursery just outside of Monroe (see here and here). The landscape is quite stunning and in the summer, bursting with bright florals. Not to mention, Gwen, one of the owners is so kind and pays attention to detail in all her floral work and set up.

Jeff and Emma had a beautiful ceremony at Cascade Community Church with a short reception after. I adored their exit too! Jeff is involved with racing and their exit was so unique and perfect to the couple. They truly are racing into life’s new race! Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Thomas!

Venue: Pine Creek Nursery & Cascade Church

Dress: David’s Bridal

Florals: Pine Creek Nursery

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!

Shiner Wedding

Olalla, WA

Beth & Doug were married at the Edgewater House a few weeks ago on a beautiful September day. This was a stunning venue right on the water. Their decor was nothing short of intimate details and stunning florals. I was obsessed with the succulent in her bouquet! This was such a fun day – from writing vows in a giant tub, many sentimental tears with family, a sassy flower girl, such close attention to details throughout the whole day, delightful food and dancing. This wedding truly was a magical day – congratulations Beth & Doug!

Griffin Wedding

Tacoma, WA

I had the privilege to photography with my good friend and Portland photographer, Bethany Jeffery last August for the Griffin Wedding! It was such a stunning day!

Congrats you two, so excited for your new journey ahead together!

McCarville Wedding

Des Moines, WA

Kelly & Bobby were married August 8th at Des Moines Beach Park. Overlooking the beautiful Puget Sound, it was a perfect setting – despite the slight rain! They braved the fluke rain that happened during our summer heat stroke and just as their ceremony began, the rain stopped! A miracle to start off a happy marriage! Congratulations you guys!

D + B First Look

University Place, WA

Here are photos from Danica and Byron’s first look at Chambers Bay! This was the first wedding my husband Trevor and I shot together and he did a great job! Who knew it would be so fun to photograph with your own husband! Danica and Byron are great friends of ours and it is always such an honor to be a part of first looks, let a lone theirs. First looks are some of the most precious and beautiful times between a bride and groom. When they see each other, the whole world seems to disappear! Joy overflowed during this adorable moment!

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!

Shamp Wedding

Tacoma, WA

This was my last wedding of 2014 and it ended with a beautiful November day! I was totally expecting it to rain this day, but it must have been fate because it was a gorgeous sunny day in the Pacific Northwest! Heather and Josh were married at the rustic Steilacoom Town Hall. This adorable venue was perfect for their fall wedding.
