manor house wedding

This was the first time I got to shoot a Manor House wedding and it has become one of my favorite venues. Located on Bainbridge Island at Pleasant Beach Village, you get views of the sound through the trees, and amazing architecture. Manor House is a 1920’s Tudor style house that offers amazing sunsets when […]

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.  […]

Karli and Calum’s camp vibes wedding at The River House was seriously so stunning. They wanted to stay away from decor that leaned on the feminine side, and in my opinion, they achieved the perfect balance. With a Glamp Photo Booth, handmade details done by Karli + her bridesmaids, and no shortage of pizza, this […]

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!

Jinoos and Justin’s Dairyland wedding in Snohomish was everything fall wedding dreams are made of. Jinoos and I emailed back and forth the […]

O’Shanna and Hayden joined me at this Christmas tree farm for their engagement session on the perfect day in December. And by perfect in western Washington I just mean that it wasn’t raining… or at least we hit the window in the day where the rain had stopped. We’re entering that time of year where […]

  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 […]

  Ah, you guys. This wedding. This day was so beautiful in every single way imaginable. From the gorgeous home the bridal party got ready in to the golden sunset later that evening. The venue was goals, flowers were on point, dress was FIRE and Ashley looked amazing in it, details were so perfect for […]
