2014 was a big year for Briana and Jake. They got engaged!! It was at Get Hitched Give Hope’s 2014 gala, that we met and lucky for them, they were the highest bidders on my donation of wedding photography!! They’re the type of couple that never shy’s from an adventure. Quick to laugh, and quick to give. My type of people, fun and generous. I’m so excited to be their photographer for their upcoming nuptials at the Fairmont, and I’m even MORE excited to share their amazing, out of this world, engagement session we did last week on Lake Washington!!
Ulla and Bobby planned the sweetest little ceremony and luncheon for their closest family and friends to celebrate with them! I was so honored to be one of the few to witness their ceremony and capture the love between them. So many adventures in their immediate future as they adjust to married life and welcome their sweet baby in the coming months.
Novelty Hill set the perfect backdrop and provided for some AWESOME portraits.
Ulla and Bobby had the assistance of these wedding professionals to make their wedding amazing:
Florals: The Petal and the Stem
Officiant: Reverend Ray Van Winkle
Venue/Catering: Novelty Hill Januik
Cupcakes: Trophy Cupcakes
Is there anything more magical than Cannon Beach? How about spending a weekend with your closest family and friends and then marrying the love of your life in the heart of a Northwest spring storm? Rose and Ben chose Surf Sand Resort as the epicenter of their festivities, and for good reason! The night before their exchange of vows, we gathered on the beach for a private bonfire with s’mores and warmth and lit wish lanterns to send up into the sky. Pure magic.
Waking up in the morning, the haystack is right within reach, and on this blustery April day, with wind whipping the sand across our cheeks… Rose and Ben met on the beach to celebrate the first day of the rest of their lives. Married at Ecola Beach Park, we all braved the elements as the sky opened up to some of the craziest, heaviest rain we’ve ever seen!! All parts of this destination wedding were unmatched. Congrats Rose and Ben!! And a big thanks to my girl Melissa Kilner for having me along on this ride to second shoot with you.
One of my favorite families on Earth, the Needhams. Braved the frigid cold (but no rain!) for these impromptu family portraits. We chose Howarth Park, which was a big win for me, because it’s 2 minutes from my house!
Billy and I met the Needhams when we first started attending Eastlake in Everett. Strangely, after living in this city for almost 6 years at that time we first gave it a try, most of our friends lived elsewhere. We were really searching for a sense of community, closer to home and Eastlake made it so easy for us to connect and belong in an authentic way. We love our church, our friends and the relationships we’ve fostered by being a part of something greater. The Needhams are a big reason why, without a doubt, we are soul mates. So thankful for them!
