Relaxed + Romantic documentary style photography. I capture things just as they are, to bring you back to that day and make you feel all the same feels.

Danielle + Tyler met online (in true 2020/global pandemic fashion) and pretty much knew they were ready to do the damn thing, so they booked a room at a local bed-and-breakfast and met me at this woodsy spot on the river near my house in Port Angeles to say “I do” with her two boys. Take a look–it was simple but so beautiful!

  I am such a sucker for a fall wedding. Fall anything, honestly. But fall weddings are seriously gorgeous. I love warm color palettes, cooler air and the thrill of unpredictable weather. Jinoos and Justin’s Dairyland wedding in Snohomish was everything fall wedding dreams are made of. Jinoos and I emailed back and forth the […]

  Being on Alki Beach for a wedding just gave me a cool feeling–I don’t know if I can really describe it, but it just felt good. It’s the cutest little beachy town within Seattle with the most amazing view of the city skyline. I’m not from the city and to be honest, Seattle stresses […]

This wedding is a favorite of mine first off, because I LOVE this venue ( aMaurice Cellars in Walla Walla, WA) but also this couple and MY GOD, this sunset. All the good feels, all the good vibes. Oh, and the food was freaking bomb. Alexa + Westy are super fun, really sweet, and affectionate […]

Andy + Wuen made my job easy. Let’s start with a little bit about them: They lead worship together and music is BIG part of their relationship. These two are kind and sweet, and really stylish. Andy used to work in the women’s shoe department of Nordies, and I secretly wanted him to be my personal shopper and help re-do my entire wardrobe. Accepting applications now, BTW.

I’m gonna make this short and sweet: Vanessa + Ryan are my kinda people. They’re laid back, say-what’s-on-your-mind kinda people, who wanna celebrate and party with their friends and family. I can’t wait to show you the whole wedding, but in the meantime, here you go!

I’m gonna start off with some truth: What you’re about to witness may or may not be illegal.
