Their love story is a sweet one, and so was their wedding day! I loved photographing this natural mountain wedding. I could say so many good things about Betsy and Scott that I don’t even know where to begin! To put it simply, they are made for each other! He’s a rocket scientist (really!) and she’s a talented business owner / entrepeneur. Together they share an amazing energy and sweetness that was so apparent in their beautiful Park City Wedding at Louland Falls. Congratulations to these two, and I know they have many happy years ahead!!! I may call Seattle home, but I’ll be a Park City wedding photographer any time! Get me to the mountains and I’m happy!

destination wedding photographerdestination wedding photographerdestination wedding photographerdestination wedding photographerdestination wedding photographerdestination wedding photographerdestination wedding photographerAshlyn and Gabriel met in Nicaragua. The bride says “He was ‘tutoring’ me for my college Spanish class which I still barely passed. He interpreted for me on a Nicaragua trip which led to him sharing his testimony for the first time and leading someone to the Lord. We have both grown so much but what I love most is his reflection of Christ. Can’t wait to see what the Lord has planned for us!”. After a sweet and romantic courtship, when Gabe asked Ashlynn to marry him she said  it was the best “yes” she had ever said!

This bride planned a destination wedding in Nicaragua while living in the United States. Her style is dreamy, romantic, natural and organic. All of her love and hard work she put into this destination wedding came across in every detail! Set in a beach villa in Pochomil, Nicaragua, this wedding was a paradise. The Nicaraguan wedding ceremony was on a secluded beach. The couple was wed underneath a home made driftwood arch. (The driftwood arch was hand made by the groom + friends the morning of the wedding!). After their intimate wedding ceremony (bride and groom washed each other’s feet during the ceremony. So sweet!) they retreated to a romantic, organic wedding reception in the back yard of the beach house villa!

The guests were welcomed by a linen + calligraphy sign that read “Two Nations Become One”. The marriage of Ashlyn and Gabe was so obviously meant for more than just them. This couple and wedding experience put their family, friends, and faith first.  The place settings were designated by white calligraphy names on stones. The farmhouse family-style tables were lit with bistro lights above and vintage brass candlesticks on the tables. This gold, brass, ivory and pale blue theme perfectly complemented the Nicaraguan beach cabana setting. The organic feel to this wedding went right along with the bride and groom’s personalities!

This was my first wedding as an international destination wedding photographer and it couldn’t have been more perfect! It was an adventure from start to finish! I photographed this destination wedding at 19 weeks pregnant, which was also fun! (Luckily my baby girl to be is used to me being active and following my dreams! I’ve had a blissful pregnancy! ;) The bride’s family welcomed me with open arms and I had such a great time being a part of this wedding!

seattle engagement photographerseattle engagement photographerseattle engagement photographerseattle engagement photographerseattle engagement photographerseattle engagement photographerseattle engagement photographerseattle engagement photographerAs a Seattle engagement photographer I get so many opportunities to photograph organic outdoor engagement sessions! This engagement session was when I visited Salt Lake City and Park City Utah for a few weddings. I photographed Marice and Miguel last summer for just a few minutes before a huge downpour! (You can see a frame from that rainy engagement session here.) It was so fun photographing these two love birds in the warm sunny weather!

Stacey, Christian and their daughter just welcomed a NEW BABY into their arms! Baby Ryle is a sweet and calm baby who was born into the most loving family there is. You can tell mom and dad are smitten by him, and big sister is in love with and in awe of him!

These Anacortes family photos are exactly what I think all family photographs should be like. Each photograph tells a story because this family just did what they do every day. Love each other. Daughter doing Mom’s hair while she’s putting on her jelly shoes, new baby looking up at daddy with curiosity — then exploring in the backyard to find some dandelions and laughing on a quilt. This is real life. There are blurry and fast toddler moments, laughs, cuddles, a few tears and a whole bunch of love.
