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…
When Gabriel & Courtney asked me to photograph their wedding I was over the moon. I have a weakness for woodsy weddings and this was definitely one to remember. They shared the sweetest vows with the sweetest of company in the perfect setting. The fog settled in for some beautiful photos and we even got a glimpse of the sun at the end of the day. It was perfect, here are some of of my favorites.
I'm so excited to share this one with ya'll! Mikayla and Austin's wedding was stunning in every way. I couldn't help but obsess over their ceremony, I even cried a little bit it was just so perfect. I absolutely love it when couples make a point to include Christ in the center of it all. Watching them come together, and see their families and friends unite to celebrate a beautiful beginning was the best thing to witness. Not to mention the forest fires that weekend created a stunningly golden lit evening for us all. It was a true treasure to be present and capture their wedding day.
I've been wanting to test out a new lens and practice my double exposures. Combining the two made a recipe for some really cool photos. My brother was patient and acted as my model, so thanks bro. But really, check out this awesome-ness.
It was a very windy day out at Salt Creek, but we made it work to our advantage. It was so lovely having the beautiful Danyel in front of the camera. This shoot was the perfect reminder as to why I love capturing people in their favorite places so much. When people have a deep connection with a precise location, it's so fun being able to showcase that.
