Happy Monday, friends! I am so excited to share part two of our collaboration with Pas De Deux Bridal. I was so inspired by what everyone contributed and couldn’t get over how perfectly everything came together. In particular, I love this floor length skirt and top combination along with all the vintage accessories we paired with it. The way this skirt moves is wonderful; it flows so nicely and looks incredibly elegant. I love when a bride rocks red lips and Sandra pulled off this look flawlessly. My go-to makeup artist and hair stylist, Schona, from the Beehive Salon, kills it every single time on our shoots. You can check out more of her work from a bohemian bridal shoot we did together right here. She’s honestly a dream to work with and I cannot recommend her highly enough. She is not only incredible at what she does, but she has the sweetest personality and I feel so confident recommending her to all of my brides. I’m also just a little obsessed over the flower arrangements Flower Lab created for this shoot, and the white and green bouquet we used for Sandra is my favorite. It’s so lush and I can’t get enough of all the greenery. The ladies over at Flower Lab are talented beyond words. Every time I work with them I am blown away by the arrangements they create. Seattle is so lucky to have them and I feel even luckier that I get to live right down the street from their awesome shop. As a natural light Seattle wedding photographer I was so excited to get to use the indoor space at The Classroom Collective. Their natural light studio is such a gift for photographers. Not only can you rent out the space for photo shoots, but they offer wonderful classes as well for all creative types. It’s a win-win for the whole community. Part three of our bridal shoot will be on the blog soon. Cheers!

Kandace and Ben live in Florida but they are getting married in Seattle next year and it is going to be a beauty. We met on a crisp Seattle morning and even though it was still technically summer, you could tell fall was in the air. Crisp, overcast days are my favorite and they make for one of my other favorite things: snuggly engagement sessions. I love this time of year and their Lincoln Park West Seattle engagement session was just lovely. One of my favorite beaches to go to in Seattle for pictures is Lincoln Park. In the morning it’s especially quiet and not only do you get great water views, but so many lush trees surround the paths as well. I love their classy style and that they chose to throw in a little extra glam. Their attire was the perfect combination of formal but comfortable. Tip: Don’t be afraid to get a little fancy for pictures, but when deciding on what to wear, make sure it is not only something you are going to be comfortable wearing, but also something that reflects your personality. Kandace’s dress was gorgeous and she was able to move freely in it, which is something you want to keep in mind when picking out an outfit or two. You can find her dress and other great clothing options on Rent the Runway. I definitely recommend using this site. I can personally say that I’ve only had a great experience renting from them. This Lincoln Park West Seattle engagement session was so much fun and I can’t wait to see these lovelies again for their spring wedding.
