Picking out outfits for your engagement session can be a struggle, and super stressful. 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.

Chautauqua Engagement Session – Kathryn and Tanner

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 […]

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 […]

Where do I start?! That location, that light, these two!! Kayce and Chico were a dream to photograph at Wonderland Lake in Boulder! They were so stinking cute together!
