The first time I ever spoke with Patrick and Robin, I knew we were going to a great match. They are super laid back, artsy, into good food, and have friends all over the country (many of whom I got to meet at this wedding!). They didn’t want an extravagant wedding, they just wanted to […]

Patrick & Robin / Whimsical Backyard Wedding in Olympia, WA

OPEN POST

There are a lot of stories tied up in this wedding. First, is the story of how Sarah and I met. Charlie and I were flying to South Lake Tahoe for the weekend without the kids (woo hoo!) and in true Montes fashion, we didn’t get seated next to each other, but across the aisle. […]

Jeff & Sarah / The Outlook Inn on Orcas Island, WA

This wedding truly knocked my socks off, there’s no other way to say it! It was clear that this family was not new to weddings and that every detail had been thought through. As a vendor serving this wedding, that made it an absolute joy for us to be apart of! Since I had already […]

Wow, what an incredible day this was. This is one of those weddings where I really want to let the photos do most of the talking, because all the hard work Miguel and Taylor put into their wedding shows. What I loved most about this wedding, besides the absolutely to die for venue – The […]

Wow these two, what a day. I knew from our Skype call that Charlie and I would have a lot of fun during their wedding, and we did. They are laid back and you feel like good friends pretty quickly. They love and support each other for who they are and know how to appreciate […]

Andrew and Daniele’s wedding was my final wedding for 2018. I did a lot of weddings last year but before their wedding I prayed that the Lord would give me the energy and passion as if it were the first wedding of the year, and he did! It helped that the sun was shining and […]

Andrew & Daniele / Coastal Fall Wedding at Seabrook, WA

OPEN POST

Words fail me sometimes when I think about how to describe Ari and Amy. Radiant, joyful, loving are all words that come to mind but still fall short somehow. I met these two by happenstance, when my husband and I took our kids to a local fair. They were about to open their family-centered chiropractic […]

When I first met Jesse and Amanda during their engagement photos last fall, I knew that their wedding day was going to be really fun – and it was! They are two of the sweetest and most down to earth people ever. Their first look was tearful and emotional, Charlie and I had a hard […]

Jesse & Amanda / Romantic Firefighter Wedding at Trinity Tree Farm in Issaquah, WA

OPEN POST

In the days leading up to their wedding, Amy described it as being a low-key and intimate day. She was right, but it was also one of the more beautiful weddings I’ve gotten to photograph this year. They put a lot of the thought into the simple, minimalistic details that really stood out in their […]
