It’s pretty surreal when you have a couple e-mail you and say that they have been guests at several weddings that you’ve photographed. I don’t feel very old but e-mails like that make me realize just how long I have been shooting weddings! Needless to say, I was very excited to hang out with Kevin […]

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 […]

Have you ever come away from meeting someone and just felt warm inside afterward? That’s how I felt after hanging out with these two last October. They were a little nervous to have their photos taken but after a few minutes they were so natural together and ended up having a blast. I’m delighted to […]

Sometimes when you’re a little camera shy, bringing your pup along can help you relax. At least that’s what Jake and Sara found during their engagement session this September. We couldn’t have asked for a more gorgeous day at Woodard Bay Conservation area, we had the fall colors all to ourselves as we strolled the […]

I’m so happy that I got to photograph the Peters family during their short stay in Washington. The October colors were showing off for us that day and the outfits they wore complimented everything so nicely. Their youngest didn’t want anything to do with me or my camera, so we just focused on playing and […]

If you have known me for a long time then you might remember one of the first weddings Charlie and I ever shot together, Mark and Jena’s wedding way back in 2011. We stay friends with most of our wedding couples over the years and they were no exception! I was thrilled when Jena decided to […]

I have been blessed to get to know this family well over the last few months and let me tell you, they’re a good one. We ventured out to the Nisqually Wildlife Reserve on the first day of fall and the sunset did not disappoint. Their three littles ran all the way down the path […]
