Nathan + Nichole {Ferry and Point Defiance Wedding Photography}

I really can’t tell you enough how in love I was with this wedding-on-a-ferry thing – please can we do this again?? Okay, I supposed it helped that Nate & Nikki are the cutest couple to ever get in front of a camera. No joke. Half the time I didn’t do anything but stand there…

Adam + Caitlin {Axton Events Wedding Photography}

With a gorgeous venue like Axton Events, you really can’t get a bad day – but Adam & Caitlin ordered up all the best sun for their wedding on Saturday and everything just shone. Their day was full of family, friends, outbursts of laughter and contagious tears;  no one was immune! That daddy-daughter dance about…

Zach + Katy {Trinity Tree Farm Wedding Photography}

“Nothing can dim the light which shines within.” — Maya Angelou This was a beautiful day celebrating two beautiful humans who have created a truly beautiful life together. Listening to their friends and family extol and praise them during their reception, you realized that the depth and breadth of these two goes far beyond a…

Bryant + Joana {Maplehurst Farms Wedding Photography}

This is one of the longest posts I’ve made in awhile, but you’ll see why; there was simply SO MUCH not-to-miss at this wedding! Jo and Bryant went all out on every detail. Jo even created their own newspaper as the ceremony program, complete with dates special to them and a crosswords game of personal…

Luke + Jessica {Bicentennial Inn Wedding Photography}

We were beyond excited and honored to fly out to West Virginia last week and photograph the wedding of Kevin’s gorgeous cousin Jessica and her debonair high school sweetheart, Luke. The little town of Buckhannon was a charming backdrop for the simple, rustic chic affair they hosted to celebrate at the impressive Bicentennial Inn. The…

Wade + Kendra {Squalicum Boathouse Wedding Photography}

With gorgeous DIY decor and simple beauty overriding the entire day, Wade and Kendra’s big day was the perfect springtime wedding. Alright, it might have been a little chilly – but the cherry trees were blooming, and it WASN’T raining! Kendra’s daughter Ivy, with her huge brown doe eyes and her fellow flower-girl-sidekicks-in-pink, stole the…

Payton + Jordan {The Leopold Bellingham Wedding Photography}

“Let us step into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.” –Dumbledore Payton & Jordan had the most epic, elegant and yet somehow completely relaxed Harry Potter-themed wedding you could imagine. With an extremely well executed “enchanted library” theme, here’s a rundown of some of the highlights:              –…

Kris + Angileen {Norway Park Wedding Photography}

We were so excited to be a part of Kris & Angileen’s wedding; not only because they’re clearly the cool kids, but also because they got married at the same place that Kevin & I met at as googly-eyed almost-teenagers so many years ago. Norway Park in Mt Vernon is a private campground, and it so happens…

Jesse + Megan {Bellingham Backyard Wedding Photography}

A guest this evening summed up Megan & Jesse in a single observation: “I have never met a man and a woman with such identical personalities in my entire life.” Two people who are magnetic, tough, strong, sacrificial, gentle and hilarious in all the same places; yes, they are truly a unique couple. And they poured…

Jon + Bridget {Sudden Valley Dance Barn Wedding}

If there are two more sincere, gentle, all-inclusive, centered and open people on the face of this planet than Jon & Bridget, I have not met them. Strong,intelligent, creative people who have weathered much and adventured all over the world, they knew each other in high school but the sparks didn’t fly until years later when their…

Edwin + Rosemary {Seattle University Chapel Wedding Photography}

First of all, Rosemary & Edwin could not have chosen a more breathtaking and perfect place for their wedding ceremony. The chapel at Seattle University is incredible in every nook and cranny; I was mesmerized. And it fit them so perfectly; small and intimate, elegant yet somehow casual, modern and ancient and classic all at…

Daniel + Mychal {Wandering Waters Wedding Photography}

Dancing in the rain to a live band with good beer in hand – that’s a happy wedding! After getting ready in the coolest retro airstream trailer (refurbished with love and skill by Old School Trailerworks) and being literally superglued into her stunning backless dress (a first for me!), Mychal met Daniel at their favorite…

Jonathan & Katelin {The Majestic Bellingham Wedding Photography}

In one of the sweetest ceremonies to ever be spoken, two of the most loving people I’ve ever met vowed their lives and began a new family together. Katelin and Jonathan are beloved by their friends & family for good reason, and everyone who was there to celebrate their wedding on Friday had their own hundred reasons…

Kady + Margot {Skagit Valley Wedding Photography}

A month ago, Kady & Margot were just arriving in the Pacific Northwest at the end of their long road trip moving themselves and their lives cross country; today they finally celebrated the wedding that they’ve been planning long-distance for a year. Friends and family descended on Kady’s grandfather’s breathtaking waterfront property to play croquet,…

Dane + Meredith {Hotel Bellweather Wedding Photography}

Dane & Meredith have been together for ten years now, and you can tell after just a few minutes with them that they are completely perfect for each other. Comfortable and easy, they take care of each other and together take care of those around them. The party that they threw for their friends and…

John & Katie {Wandering Waters Wedding Photography}

Simple, intimate, DIY, friends & family & fun – that describes this laid-back country wedding to a T. Katie wore a scrap of her father’s suit in the shape of a heart on her dress; John made the groomsmen’s boutonnières out of antlers from deer that he’d hunted; and when the two of them opened…

Michael & Christie {Everson Private Home Wedding Photography}

Quiet rustic charm was beautifully achieved in this backyard wedding on a dairy farm in Lynden. Mike & Christie both grew up on dairy farms so the setting was fitting, and even though Mt Baker didn’t show his face until the dancing got underway late in the evening, the view was breathtaking. Mike & Christie…

Merrill + Amy {The Creek at Clayton Meadows Wedding Photography}

My favorite part of this wedding wasn’t the gorgeous, rustic chic burlap & lace decor; or all the painstakingly handmade details everywhere you looked; or the wood fired pizzas handmade by the groom’s friends as guests watched; or even how utterly, completely, captivatingly in love Amy & Merrill obviously are. My favorite part of this…

Israel + Rachel {Windows on the Bay Wedding Photography}

Israel, Rachel and Lina became a family today – and it was an amazing day. Surrounded by proud friends & family, this amazing couple stood together and vowed to stand together forever. The day was gorgeous, the decorations were breathtaking, the love was palpable. From beginning to end, this wedding was one for the books.

Zach + Brittany {Hotel Bellweather Wedding Photography}

What an amazing day, with an amazing couple. First of all, thunderstorms the night before got all the bad weather out of the way so we had gorgeous clear skies the morning of Zach & Brittany’s wedding. In her breathtaking mermaid dress, Brittany stole the show; she and Zach giggled all day like adorable lovebirds….
