moody couple lake crescent engagement

I’m all about the intimate and moody Lake Crescent engagement pictures, and these two got the perfect foggy day. There is something so specific about the Pacific Northwest, especially the Olympic Peninsula near Port Angeles—is there anywhere else you could get this view? Tepid lake, evergreen trees stretching into the distance, fog swathing the hills.  […]

Did someone just include the words “dinner party” and “wedding” in the same sentence? Count me in! McKenna and John’s modern dinner party wedding was everything you could ever ask for. They didn’t want anything too stuffy or formal, so they chose Tredgar Iron Works in Virginia for their perfect venue. They wanted their 165 […]

The venue was goals, flowers were on point, dress was FIRE and Ashley looked amazing in it, details were so perfect for […]

I LOVE engagement sessions. This one was extra special because Carson is a good friend and 1/4 of Bixby+Pine, my favorite wedding planners! We did their session in Snoqualmie, WA with Mt. Si as our backdrop. We got a little bit of moody Washington state weather with some rain but had so much fun taking […]
