Where do I even begin?! This was one of the most fun filled wedding days I’ve ever captured. Andy & Amanda completely adore each other which made my job as fun as it could be. I swear if there’s such thing as a match made in heaven — they’re it. Watching Andy’s daughter Kylie help Amanda with her dress was so special to watch. The bond that family has is so strong, so loving and so evident. Witnessing all the pretty details, the pre ceremony jitters, the happiness, the tears, the laughs, all of the cutest dogs, the best guests and the most gorgeous sunset was right up my alley in every way possible. Despite things going a little different as most weddings do, we still managed to pull everything off with flying colors. Traffic was bad that day so some guests were late to arrive for their ceremony. Instead of stressing out about having to postpone the ceremony until friends and families from out of town could arrive, we went down to the beach as the sun peaked through the oceanside mist and we took some of the most romantical photos before they officially tied the knot. They had a beautiful ceremony, with many tears, & many laughs & wrapped things up with the cutest first kiss ever before dancing their way to sign their marriage license. These two took wedding day celebrations to a whole new level. It was no surprise that DJ Robotix did a fantastic job at getting the party started. He set the guests’ dancing shoes on fire — especially Andy’s (see pictures). Not to mention, the evening golden skies really set the scene. I can’t say enough good things about Whiskey Creek Beach NW and how stunning & perfect this place is for a wedding. This wedding was seriously overall everything I could’ve dreamt it to be… but I’ll stop blabbering and let the photos speak for themselves…
I absolutely love anniversaries! When I get to take photos of two love birds to remember a big milestone you better believe I'm going to have a blast doing it. Accompanied by a darling bouquet, this sweet couple dressed to the nines with love letters in hand, and a slice of chocolate cake and drinks in my suitcase to wrap it up at the end. I was able to document their love on a gorgeous mountain hillside. I embrace the little things, and strive to make Anniversary sessions sentimental, intimate, fun and memorable.
Over the Summer, I got to spend a beautiful evening in the woods with Josh and Liz. They were so playful and fun to hang out with. We put on some of their favorite tunes, explored the gorgeous scenery and even jumped in a nearby creek to wrap things up with a bang.
Matt & Ashlee spent the first day of June eloping. I was so thrilled when they contacted me wanting to explore so many beautiful locations to celebrate their marriage. It was definitely a photographer's dream. I met them at the Domaine Madeleine Bed & Breakfast in Sequim, Washington where they had an intimate ceremony, exchanging personal vows in the presence of myself and two others. I got to be a witness on their marriage license which was a total treat! From there, we made our way to Port Angeles where we explored Hurricane Ridge, Lake Crescent and ended the evening out at Salt Creek. I was so thrilled that the weather cooperated for us and that we were able to enjoy some light sprinkles, fog, overcast and even a little peak of sunshine all throughout the day. I feel so blessed to have had this glorious opportunity. I love my job.
Anniversary sessions are so romantic, they're definitely one of my new favorite things to shoot. I was so blessed to have met the very beautiful Rachel and steal her and her hubby for some amazing photos. I knew that her and her husband Nathan were crazy in love with each other, so to be able to capture such love for their First Anniversary was like a gift from heaven itself. Having them wear their wedding day attire, looking like a million bucks and roaming around some seriously beautiful areas was right up my alley. But I'll stop rambling so you can fully embrace the most epic, most beautiful couple session ever. I've been so anxious to share these, enjoy!
