2015 is shaping up to be a beautiful year. I am currently booking weddings for 2015 + 2016. I am based in Seattle but available for worldwide travel. I love light, romance, beautiful outdoor spaces and couples that value photography, who aren’t afraid of taking risks, are passionate for one another, who find joy and tenderness in the quiet moments spent together and want the story of their wedding to unfold naturally and authentically. Please know that our relationship doesn’t begin when I photograph your wedding, it begins the moment we sit down and chat for the first time over tea or a glass of wine. I want us to feel like old friends. For me, it isn’t just about your wedding day, it’s about creating an experience you will remember forever.

2014 was all about dreaming big, deciding what I want to shoot and who I want to work with, and learning lessons. It was a year of making sacrifices and saying lots of prayers. We hugged our family and friends and said goodbye to them and California to plant our feet in Seattle. It was a memorable year, but I am so excited to say goodbye to it and welcome 2015 with open arms and an open heart. I can’t wait to see what’s ahead. I decided that this year I want to fill my life with people, places and things that I love and say adiós to things that don’t bring meaning into my life…so long Facebook! I want to be more present in every day living because time just keeps moving so quickly. Here’s to the year ahead. To seeing dreams come true, to photographing incredible couples, to capturing love and to making the most of life.

The day before our photo shoot, the temperature dropped and we had our first snowfall of the season. I woke up early, looked outside and saw everything covered in snow. I got Carl out of bed, made him throw on his sweats and we walked around our neighborhood. God, I love it here. The day of our shoot, the sun came out to play but we froze our tootsies off. I literally cannot remember a time I’ve ever been so cold, but Traci and Jerome brought their A game. Seriously. They are the type of clients I dream about. I cannot wait for their spring wedding in California. For now, here is some of their Seattle goodness.

My favorite people are the kind of people you feel like you’ve always known and when you meet for the first time it doesn’t feel that way. It feels like you’re just catching up with someone you’ve known forever. This is how I feel about Christy and Nate. From the moment I met them I liked them a lot. They are fun and funny and so easy to be around. Their love for one another is the sweetest kind of love and I am so grateful that they have invited me into their lives. Their love shoot on the streets of Seattle is one of my all-time favorites and the kind stranger who approached us, took their hands and prayed over them is someone I will never forget.
