Holt Wedding

Fun wedding

We met Elliot and Erin at a coffee shop in Ballard and they felt like kindred spirits from the very beginning. They love video games and books in seemingly equal measure, which meant that we had a lot to talk about. As we started to discuss the details of their wedding, it became crystal clear that […]

Tupper Engagement Session

PNW engagement

October engagement sessions can be tricky because everybody wants to frolic in the autumnal leaves, but the cold weather that made the trees beautiful to look at also makes it unpleasant for us to be outside. When we met up with Charles and Katie at the Washington Park Arboretum, the thermometer was hovering right around […]

Millar Wedding

Puget Sound wedding

Sam’s best friend summed up this marriage perfectly in her toast when she said, “I’m so glad Sam found someone who could give as much love as she does.” This is so true! Sam and Travis are some of the warmest, most loving people you could imagine and they couldn’t have found better partners than […]

Montgomery Engagement Session

Tacoma engagement

Adventurous clients are the best! When Boomer and Holly agreed to have their engagement session at Point Defiance Park, we didn’t warn them that they would be standing at the precarious edge of a 60-foot cliff overlooking Puget Sound. However, even if we had mentioned it, it wouldn’t have diminished their interest in the slightest. […]

Kot Wedding

Beautiful wedding

Patrick and Brianna got married at the hottest new venue in Thurston Country. The property is owned by her parents and it’s so new that it doesn’t even have an official name yet – this wedding was the first to be held there. Thankfully, there were no unexpected surprises, which allowed everyone to focus solely […]

Millar Engagement Session

Mount Rainier engagement

Travis and Sam are avid hikers and rock climbers, so we couldn’t resist whisking them off to Mount Rainier for their engagement session. We wanted to capture them looking their best while also showing a glimpse of the natural beauty that they often surround themselves with. We are so excited for their wedding this fall and we’re […]

Palmer Wedding

Christian wedding

Reid and Jessica’s love story is so unlikely that we doubt even the Hallmark Channel would use it as a plot for a daytime movie – which makes it all the more wonderful. Picture it: two girls meet at summer camp and become fast friends. They are bridesmaids in each other’s weddings and they grow up to have children […]

Holt Engagement Session

Seattle Center engagement

Elliot proposed to Erin in the central courtyard of the Pacific Science Center so we weren’t surprised when they suggested Seattle Center as the location for their engagement session. The two of them were adorably affectionate the entire time and we were extraordinarily lucky with the crowds – despite a rare break from our dreary PNW weather, Seattle […]

Tupper Wedding

Rustic barn wedding

From the moment we met Trevor and Jaimee, we knew that we were going to enjoy photographing their wedding. Trevor had all of these grand ideas for an amazing celebration and neither of them was interested in sweating the small details at the expense of having fun. Their wedding absolutely delivered! When we arrived at […]
