Kinney Wedding

Lewis County wedding

What a way to end the 2018 wedding season! Luke and Lance have known each other for thirteen years, so this wedding felt more like a family celebration for us than anything else. What’s awesome is that it would have felt like that even if they were complete strangers, because family was the theme of […]

Pele Engagement Session

Fall engagement session

Western Washington had a few beautiful days in October and we were fortunate to schedule George and Kelsie’s engagement session on one of them. We met up at Tumwater Falls Park, which is a place neither of them had ever been to before. We discussed this surprising fact for a few minutes while other people […]

Mackey Wedding

Shoreline wedding

When two people love each other, it spreads out from their relationship to touch everybody around them – family, friends, and sometimes even total strangers. Drew and Kariann have that kind of relationship and their wedding clearly showed it. It started right at the beginning of the day when Kariann found a spread of snacks […]

Fenster Wedding

Apple orchard wedding

Imagine all of the details that go into planning a wedding. Now imagine doing all of it across three states and two continents. When Brant and Sanet told us all the lengths they went to (literally) to plan their wedding, we were intrigued and excited to be part of their big day. Sanet’s family is […]

Mackey Engagement Session

Seattle waterfront engagement

We met Kariann back in the summer of 2015 when she was a bridesmaid for the lovely Marissa Gilbert. We actually joked with Marissa that day about how much we loved her bridesmaids and how thrilled we would be to photograph their individual weddings someday. Well, we did Page’s in 2016 and later this month […]

Abston Wedding

Mount Rainier wedding

We enjoy photographing weddings because they represent the start of something new – a new name, a new phase of life, a new family. Colten and Katelyn’s wedding had the best of all of these, especially the family element. We really liked how they included each other’s family members in their wedding parties: Katelyn’s brother […]

Tupper Wedding

Spokane wedding

We love backyard weddings! Getting married at home (or at the home of a close family member) allows couples to feel comfortable in a way that no rented venue can match. Charles and Katie got married at her parents’ house – along with the adjoining yards of their gracious neighbors – and it was such […]

Kinney Engagement Session

Romantic engagement session

We have known Lance for well over a decade and we were thrilled when he (finally) proposed to Courtney last year. When it came time to photograph their engagement session, Chambers Bay Golf Course seemed like the ideal location given that these two love the outdoors – where else can you go from dense forest […]
