And it can be even more difficult to pick out your Fall engagement session outfits, because there are so many other colors to think about! Here are some of my favorite fall engagement session outfits from past sessions to help you […]

My Favorite Fall Engagement Session Outfits

All week before this session it was sunny and clear and beautiful, and then I wake up the morning of Kathryn & Tanner’s Chautauqua engagement session, and of course, it’s raining. But I was so excited for this session, no way was I going to reschedule it! Luckily, the weather cooperated with us and we […]

Chautauqua Engagement Session – Kathryn and Tanner

Whenever I tell someone I’m a wedding photographer, I almost always get asked, “What’s the craziest wedding you’ve ever been to?” I know it sounds lame, but I have such a hard time answering this question!

Green Gates at Flowing Lake Wedding – Erika & Ki

Every year since I started photographing weddings I have photographed at least one wedding for free. Sometimes it’s for a couple who maybe couldn’t afford a photographer otherwise. Sometimes it’s a couple in need. Sometimes I do a giveaway for weddings in new destinations I want to photograph in. Maybe you’re asking yourself, why on […]

2019 Wedding and Portrait Giveaway!

So many photos to edit, so little time! The past couple weeks have been my busiest this summer, with back to back weddings and traveling to Washington and California. I’m typing this up at the airport waiting for my flight home, and I’m still over the moon excited about my new laptop and the fact […]

Downtown Seattle Engagement Session – Erika & Ki

Man, I’m just an editing machine lately! I bought a laptop and it’s literally changed my life. I’ve been working on a desktop for 5 years, so being able to edit on the go (or on my couch) has really improved my turn around time! Wahoo! Enough about me, let’s talk about this Snoqualmine Falls […]
