Madi

I don't get to photograph seniors often, but when I do it is the BEST. Meet Madi, the babeliest of all seniors. (Who, by the way, made that flower crown from scratch.) Madi is just the sweetest soul and I'm so glad we got to spend the evening running through flower fields together. A few of my favorite frames. xo

Kristina + Josh

Kristina and Josh, along with their amazing coordinator Rhi from Hey Gorgeous Events, made a dream team for this engagement shoot! We started with photos at their home (always a personal favorite), and then Kristina worked her way into a gorgeous Free People dress as we moved outdoors. Rhi designed and styled the florals because she is insanely talented, and the four of us ended up at Hot Cakes after our shoot, which is always a sign of sweet victory. Kristina and Josh are such a lovely couple- I'm so looking forward to photographing their wedding at Sodo Park next year!

Amy + Adam

Amy and Adam celebrated their wedding at a gorgeous home overlooking Pasadena. Amy made all of her stunning wedding Jewelry, and her amazing taste was so clearly reflected in the beauty and elegance of the day. (Amy also made my own engagement ring, so working with her has been doubly special!!) I can't say enough good things about these two- getting to photograph them during their sweet season was such a treat. xo

Kimmy + Garrett

Something special happens when a wedding authentically reflects a couple- when you're invited into a space that represents exactly what's important to them. Kimmy and Garrett's fingerprints were all over their day; from the two of them walking down the aisle together, to handpicking their favorite books and using them as the "guest book," to having their honored guests hold lanterns during the ceremony- it was 100% them. Their intimate wedding was held at the Dragonfly Retreat right outside of Seattle, and Kimmy looked like a dream in her Marigold and Mint flower crown. (Thinking of getting myself one of those to wear around the office.) Kimmy and Garrett were a beautiful example of how to make your wedding day an extension of yourself.

 

Nelly + Michael: Road Trip Engagement

Nelly and Michael are the kind of humans you want at your birthday party, your dinner party, your weeknight cereal dinner- basically anytime you're doing anything. They are full of life, full of joy, and full of love for each other- and it just spills over to everyone around them. Nelly and Michael are both fishermen in Alaska, and they drove their VW camper van to San Francisco where we met for a weekend of playing and shooting their engagement photos along the coast. (Side note: Nelly made that flower crown. Talent show material.) This shoot is one of the reasons I love my work. And why it hardly feels like work at all.
