Megan and Rutilio are thoughtful, big-hearted, so in love and they bring warmth wherever they go. Megan and her big smile light up every room she walks in to– Rutilio loves her so much and I often caught him just looking at Megan smiling. Together they make a very sweet pair. I’m so happy I can call them both family. They are the type of people that effortlessly make you feel grateful to have them in your life!

This Marin Headlands Center for the Arts wedding was a complete fairytale! Megan and Rutilio had a stunning San Francisco Wedding. Their outdoor ceremony was at  Point Bonita lighthouse that overlooked the San Francisco Bay. On a clear day, you would be able to perfectly see the Golden Gate bridge. It was the most perfect backdrop for the San Francisco outdoor beach wedding.

After the ceremony, the guests were shuttled back to the reception area by an authentic San Francisco Trolley!! It was so iconic and fun. I hope I can come back to San Francisco one day and photograph and these incredible venues again– I loved every minute of it! Big windows let in lots of natural light, the feel to the rooms was intimate yet there was plenty of space, and of course the lighthouse was just breathtaking! I miss it already. (Plus Megan did an incredible job planning every last detail! She incorporated their loved ones with vintage family photos, the farm tables with mismatched chairs and fresh flowers were a great complement to the family-style dinner, and the bistro lights provided a lovely ambience!)

Although things might not always go as planned on a wedding day, I love when couples really enjoy the experience and each other, because THAT is what it is all about! Megan and Rutilio have a happy life ahead of them.

A huge thank you to all of the people who made this wedding a dream come true for this deserving couple! A rockstar wedding party, insightfully helpful maid of honor, lovely flowers, amazing venues, great friends, delicious food– it is a wonderful day to remember!!!!!

Noelle and Evan were married in the gorgeous Issaquah area of Washington! I was so happy to have been able to capture their “First Look”. I love being able to document the special moment when the groom sees his stunning bride in her wedding dress for the first time. The reaction is always priceless and the portraits thereafter are intimate, romantic and timeless.
Wedding photographers in Issaquah, WA are so lucky! The Pacific Northwest is such  beautiful landscape that no matter where you photograph,  there is an abundance of  trees, soft natural light and opportunities for lovely wedding photographs.

Want me to photograph your first look on your wedding day? I would LOVE that. I’m now booking for 2015 weddings, contact me and we can talk about all the details! xoxo

Brett and Chandra are a vivacious couple! Full of laughs and energy and they are just so sweet.  It was so fun photographing them in some of their favorite places. They are moving to Oregon soon, so it was was the perfect way to commemorate their love and life in Seattle. They were such a joy to be around, and their little dog (Radcliffe: Rad for short) is so adorable. And he LOVED me. (Okay… that last part was kind of a lie.) It really was the perfect night!! I am so excited for their 2015 Spring wedding!

As a Seattle Engagement photographer, I never run out of opportunities to photograph in beautiful places. The city skyline was the perfect addition to this Seattle couple’s engagement session. We chose a beautiful evening, so that made for a sunny and crowded quick stop at Kerry Park for the iconic Seattle city skyline as the backdrop for this Seattle engagement session. We then went to a more natural location with trees and pretty light and finished up at the most beautiful Pacific Northwest beach.
