OK, so technically this wasn’t a wedding – this was Brennan & Khia’s “Later Party”!

Barnstar in Ferndale is one of my favorite wedding venues, and we haven’t been able to photograph a wedding there since pre-covid days; so I was really excited to be able to join Joe and Katie there for their big day.

Russell + Cassandra | Whatcom Falls Adventure Wedding

I’ve had the privilege of photographing all kinds of weddings for 17 years now, and in all of that time I’ve never been a part of an experience like what Russ & Cass put together. They flew in from Colorado for a PNW adventure wedding on top of a waterfall, and because Russell has always…

Taylor + Sydney | Forest Wedding

I think there might not be anything more perfectly picturesque than a forest wedding, with gorgeous soft moss hanging from knobby trees and sunlight filtering through branches that are dropping their leaves for fall.
