The Carlsons {Hovander Park Family Photography}

“It would be so easy to forget to love this life; to just go through the motions, doing what needs to be done, as if it’s all going to last forever. And I remind myself: the life that we have right here, right now, is the BEST life there is.”
-Katrina Kenison

The Meyers {Fairhaven Family Photography}

The best summers are made up of ice cream, books, and downtown fun with Mom & Dad; or so says Maddie, only the most adorablest little she-child you’ve ever met. With her big blue eyes and delighted dimpled grin, she charms the socks off everyone she meets. I love this little family, and I loved our…

Kyle + Melissa {Hovander Park Tennant Lake Engagement Session}

“I choose you. And I’ll choose you, over and over and over. Without pause, without a doubt, in a heartbeat, I’ll keep choosing you.” –Unknown I love Hovander Park and the boardwalks at Tenant Lake on sunny days, and I love young couples who laugh so easily together. Kyle & Melissa’s Bothell wedding this July…

Zachary Alan {Lifestyle Newborn Photography}

New life. It’s just amazing, it’s it? Those tiny little toes, minuscule fingernails, poochy lips and big, bright eyes. Taking everything in as brand new information. Screams and coos and giggles and smiles… you could just sit and stare at him for hours. Mom and Dad have a love for elephants… this one was in…

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…
