Fall is one of my favorite seasons to shoot in. There’s just something so sweet about cozying up to your loved one in the crisp autumn air. This session was so much fun and I am so happy I could capture this special time for this beautiful couple!
Lauren & Greg’s wedding was one we’ll never forget. Visually it was stunning and the weather was perfect, but there was more to the day than just that. The ceremony took place at “Granny’s” a beautiful home on Bainbridge Island that felt like it was a thousand years old. It was filled with treasures from generation upon generation and I could have spent the entire day listening to the stories about each one. Granny, the house, the memories that had been created there, that bond and focus on family is what made this wedding special. As someone who values family above all else, I was so impressed with Lauren & Greg’s ability to create such a gorgeous and grand affair, while still remaining sentimental and focused on what really matters. There was surprise after surprise…a getaway boat from Granny’s home to Kiana Lodge, next Conan O’Brien delighted guests as he introduced the couple into the reception, and finally a full fireworks show. It was amazing and we were truly honored to capture such a magnificent day.

Meet our good friends Sarah & Jeff. Over the last few years Sarah has become one of my favorite people in the world. She graduated from the Art Institute with us and shoots with us quite a bit. Simply put, she’s awesome. I’ve been excited about her wedding all year and there was no better way to end 2013. She married an equally amazing man and I couldn’t be happier for her and Jeff. We lucked out for a cold November day and didn’t get a drop of rain while at Discovery Park shooting their portraits. From there we headed to Our Lady of Fatima and ended at the Palace Ballroom in Belltown. My gorgeous friend was stunning from head to toe…seriously I am in love with her hair and cannot get over that dress, even after photographing it all day! Sarah is one quirky, lovable, and sweet girl and I am so honored we could capture this special day for her. I know Jeff will forever cherish her and we wish them all the best as they begin their life together.
We had the great pleasure of shooting for The Dress Theory in Seattle a few months ago. This charming shop carries exquisite and exclusive gowns for the bohemian, unique, and fashion forward bride. Several of our brides have found their perfect dress there, so it was an honor that Camille thought of us for this shoot. If you happen to be looking for the perfect dress, be sure to make an appointment…you simply can’t go wrong with designers like these. In addition to carrying dresses that are unique, I can honestly say the care they approach their clients with is absolutely amazing. I have heard only the best from our brides about their experiences and am so happy to have The Dress Theory in Seattle!
A huge thank you to Skye, Abbey, and Ashley for modeling and the talented Meghan for doing hair & makeup! Shot at our Seattle studio and the Rainier Chapter House.
We had the great pleasure of traveling to New Orleans to photograph this beautiful girl’s wedding. As a special present for her husband to be, Monica did a boudoir session a few weeks before we left. I’ve been so excited to share these images and absolutely love the soft feeling to them. I hope you enjoy these personal favorites of mine.
