Alyssa and Miguel wanted to enjoy their wedding day– one of the best goals of a wedding in my opinion! They were married at the beautiful outdoor venue Craven Farms in Snohomish, Washington. It was relaxed, easy going and full of family and friends! Alyssa was inspired by all things cottage, natural, hues of blush and blue and gold and lovely hand lettering. The day was a total success and although it was a rainy day, the mood was light and airy and happy! I loved photographing this Craven Farm wedding and documenting the story of this sweet and loving family!

This effortless Downton Abbey Inspired rose garden Wedding was beautiful from start to finish! Wedding venues depict how your overall wedding feels, how your photos will look and ultimately the venue influences the guest experience on the day of. This couple chose to get married at Thornewood Castle in Lakewood, WA. This is a dreamy, fairytale, castle wedding venue in Western Washington. The look is classic, with the brick castle, hardwood, and lush gardens and grounds. It was the perfect feel for this Downton Abbey inspired garden venue.

The couple incorporated so much romance into their wedding day. The romantic rose garden was the perfect setting for their wedding ceremony. The bride’s romantic sweetheart neckline dress is a beautiful compliment to the style of her wedding day. When the groom proposed, there were fireworks! So to incorporate more of their love story into their wedding day, he was sure to include some magic with a firework send off!

I’m taking a minute to write about a fun way to deliver digital images as a photographer! I am ALL about online galleries because they are so convenient and easy for everyone– you just send a link to your family and friends and they have access to your wedding images to purchase prints and downloads and it’s so so easy! Plus you don’t have to be on your own computer to access your images. However, since I’m also all about the tangible (and back up plans;) I have been experimenting with offering flash drives to my clients.
Jeff from USB Memory Direct was great to work with! And just look at the beautiful custom flash drives with my logo on them. I love that they are simple, organic and easy! (Three of my favorite words!) The overall experience of ordering my custom flash drive with my logo was SO simple. I sent a .png file of my logo (I didn’t want a background image behind my logo so I just saved it as a .png from photoshop) and USB Memory Direct sent me back a proof to approve before ordering. The shipping company was a little tricky (heads up for fellow busy people out there: you have to be home to sign for the package!) but USB Memory Direct was a dream to work with throughout the whole process! They have so many different options, but I felt this light wood + white really reflected my soft style.

My clients have loved the flash drives in addition to their online galleries. I love them because I know they provide an automatic digital backup of my clients’ precious photographs, and they’re more convenient than burning a disc!

If you have any questions at all, Jeff is a great resource! jeff@usbmemorydirect.com

PS I also included these flash drives in my workshop welcome package! They were perfect to store the digital resources that I wanted my attendees to have access to. Like the templates from Bittersweet Design! And the amazing calligraphy was provided by the lovely Krisanna!

Alyssa and John. This is a couple who melt when they look at each other, giggle when they talk to each other, and hold on tight when they walk. I loved meeting them at their Seattle Engagement session, because it really helped me get to know their sweet  love story. I am so excited to photograph their Woodstock Farm wedding in September. (Insert heart eye emoji here!) They are the sweetest couple with such kind hearts that you know they’re going to have such happy times ahead of them. I feel lucky to be a Seattle engagement photographer who is able to photograph beautiful engagement sessions in the evening outdoors, with willow trees and wheat fields and beautiful light to complement the beautiful love! Congratulations to these two, I am so so so excited to photograph their wedding!
