Seattle Wedding Photography | Amanda+Nathan | Leavenworth Sleeping Lady Resort

Saturday, August 30th, 2014

Leavenworth Washington is known for it’s German town.  In the winter, the downtown is lit up in Christmas lights and the surrounding mountains are filled with snow.  It truly feels like you’re in the middle of old Germany.  But just two weeks before Amanda+Nathan’s big day, Leavenworth was still smoke filled.  The Central Washington forest fires threatened this beautiful couple’s big day, but luckily the fires were contained and the smoke was mostly cleared out of the town itself.  It was however, 95 degrees that day and poor Amanda was in a thick, yet beautiful dress and she was such a great sport walking around in dried pine needles in the midst of a heat wave.  Take a look at their wedding sneak peek photos.  This wedding was small and intimate.  It was truly a fairy tale wonderland type of nuptial.  And I LOVE shooting weddings like this.  Enjoy!

A girl’s wedding day is a day she usually looks and feels her best.  But when you happen to catch the stomach flu the night before your big day, that’s definitely a bummer.  In this case, the bride has every right to go bridezilla on everyone and cry her heart out.  Get as emotional as she can because it’s her day and it’s about to be ruined.  But…this bride wasn’t Brooke.  Poor Brooke felt horrible the whole day and not only did it not stop her from having a day of her life, she was the one apologizing to everyone that she was sick!  Even when she needed to be rushed to the Emergency Room after a fresh face of make up, she still had a smile on her face so that everyone around her didn’t stress out over her.  I admire her for being such a strong woman and she’s seriously one of the nicest people I’ve ever worked with.  Check out her and Corey’s lovely wedding day below and wish them a wonderful life without stomach flus!!!

Seattle Family Photography | Lucy+Stella+Grayson+Fam | Bothell Country Village

Thursday, July 31st, 2014

I don’t know what it is about Bothell…but I love it!  Not just because I live here (ok so I’m a little biased) but it’s because it’s so interesting!  Nestled a little Northeast from Seattle, it’s close to Kirkland and Bellevue, close enough to drive to Seattle on a regular basis, and also extremely convenient to Snohomish and a variety of farms where you can get fresh organic produce and meats.  But what I really love about Bothell and it’s surrounding areas is that it’s full of families!  It’s a great place to raise kids because of it’s wonderful school districts and communities with parks and other little kiddos running around.  Lucy, Stella, Grayson and their families live within a 5 mile radius from Chris and I so we decided to hang out one HOT HOT morning at the Bothell Country Village.  This place is a little unique to say the least (there’s a two story chicken sculpture near the entrance) but it’s one of the best places to bring kids.  And boy did we have a blast!

Seattle Portrait Photography | Emilio+Fam

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014

Almost exactly two years after Amy+Erik got hitched, we got together for Emilio, their first son’s one year photo shoot.  I love my job as a photographer because not only is repeat business great, but along the way, we make awesome friends.  Hanging out with Amy, Erik, and Emilio was the highlight of that weekend.  It made me realize that I really need to hang out with them more!

Emilio has eyes that’ll someday break many hearts!  He’s started to break mine when we had to say goodbye to him.  Just take a peek of their photos and enjoy!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE taking photos of first time expectant parents.  I don’t know how to put it into words, but I think it’s because when couples are expecting their first child, they feel so many things.  Excitement, nervousness, fear, love, joy…and the list goes on and on.  I think a woman’s most beautiful when she’s pregnant and excited.  She smiles with such conviction because she’s truly happy to be soon holding a little creation she’s made with her loving husband.

Good Tuesday morning everyone!  Today we bring you one of the cutest little girls we’ve ever seen!  She’s just 10 months old and her parents were just awesome to work with.  We had such a wonderful time with Kenny+Hai and we loved seeing a father change his little girl into a tight dress.  It was hilarious, to say the least, but his little daughter looked awesome don’t you think?  Enjoy!

It’s almost that time of year…Thanksgiving!  November and Thanksgiving is all about family.  So for this week, we’re counting down to Turkey Day with a family a day!  Here’s the Johnson family!  SaraLeigh, Ryan, Reese, and Lee!

 

Seattle Family Photography | Theresa+Fam | Discovery Park

I love photographing families because it’s a great opportunity for me to play with kids.  Every child is different and each and one of their personalities cracks me up.  Theresa+Serimon are great parents, not because they’re personal friends of mine, but because I can see it through their kids.  You can tell Chloe wants to be like her beautiful mom in every way.  Anywhere from posing photos like her mom, to having matching boots and a mini scarf.  She’s on her way to being a beautiful classy little lady…just like her mother.  Christian thinks so highly of his daddy.  He told me his dad is stronger than Marshawn Lynch and can lift a whole house.  Now that’s a hero!

On a rare sunny Seattle fall afternoon, we went out to the park and took these lovely photos of the Strong family.  Enjoy!

Seattle Wedding Photography | Sam+Nicky | Fireseed Catering, Whidbey Island

Wednesday, October 9th, 2013

Fireseed Catering is the hidden treasure we discovered thanks to Sam+Nicky.  It was such a beautiful September day and the location was just beautiful.  Everything about the venue fit Sam+Nicky and we are so glad they gave us the opportunity to document their special day.  Sam wanted to make this day as personal as possible.  She’s the ultimate DIY bride…risking being eaten half alive by mosquitos so she can go into the woods with her father to chop down branches for her center pieces.  It’s a story Sam told me over a cup of coffee weeks before the big day for which I almost snorted liquid through my nose.

When it comes to a great couple, Sam+Nicky truly defines it.  I can not imagine how hard it would be to maintain a long distance relationship for the ENTIRE duration of that relationship.  But these two love birds did it.  For as long as these two’s been together, they’ve never really lived in the same city.  In fact, immediately after their wedding, Nicky had to fly out the next day back to serving our country in the National Guard.  As we captured their wedding day, our hearts really went out to them.  Because Nicky is such a great guy and Sam is the most beautiful and gentle person inside and out.  They were just the perfect match for one another.  We’re happy to share that Nicky will be moving back this winter to finally begin his life together with Sam.  But in the meantime, we hope these photos help them relive their day and bring them a little bit closer from the miles that separate them for now.

Chris and I have been getting into the habit of shopping most of our weekly meat and produce at the Ballard Farmer’s Market.  It’s just so great to grab some coffee then stroll around with nice people from stand to stand picking through beautiful locally grown vegetables and fruit.  But what better way to spend a Sunday morning before the market than photographing a beautiful family?  Well, that just is the icing on the cake.  Check out the Bass Family!
