Expert Tips for the Perfect Backyard Wedding - Featured on Redfin

If you’re planning a backyard wedding and unsure where to start, Redfin just blogged some tips and tricks that could help! My tip below was included in the article, inspired by Alyssa + Billy’s 2016 riverside wedding in Maple Valley, WA.

“The perfect backyard wedding starts with letting the space speak for itself! Let nature be the decor and for an added spin, ask all of your guests to dress in a color palette that compliments your wedding colors. Your guests’ coordinated attire will complement the backdrop of your wedding and become a natural decor element!”

Sneak Peek: Alyssa + Jeremy

I had the pleasure of photographing two of the kindest, sweetest souls this past weekend at The Rainier Club. Alyssa’s smile lit up a room and their love was evident in every glance, hand hold and interaction. Her stunning florals + decor were created by the talented Steve Moore of Sinclair + Moore. This wedding was one for the books!! 

Congratulations, Jeremy + Alyssa!!

Cheers to a Happy + Blessed New Year!

Happy New Year, friends!!! 

Reflecting on 2018 has us smiling with gratitude! We were blessed with a wedding season full of beautiful + wonderful clients, got to travel to inspiring places like Tulum + Vail, had work published in book form (hello, 52 Lists for Togetherness) while both becoming brides this year, too! (Meghan’s wedding in June & Michele’s in October!) 

We’re in the midst of setting goals + brainstorming ideas for 2019! We’re grateful for the incredible clients we have booked for next year and are thrilled to still have more weekends available, too! 

We can’t wait to see what this next year holds and are so thankful for everyone who supported us this year!

Cheers to a wonderful new year!!!

Jaclyn + Travis featured on Bridal Musings

We’re a little behind on keeping our blog up to date but this feature was definitely a highlight of our summer! Such a big thank you to Bridal Musings for featuring Jaclyn + Travis’ Maroni Meadows wedding. 

This was such a special wedding to capture - from the cutest ring bearer we’ve ever seen to the groom splitting his pants on the dance floor - every moment of this wedding was fun, intentional and beautiful! Congrats again, J+T!!

Two Frames: The Lengle Family

Getting to photograph the Lengle family every fall for their Christmas card is one of my favorite post-wedding season shoots. Photographing families is what drew me to photography 10 years ago so capturing yearly images for different families around Seattle & LA is one of my favorite ways to ease out of wedding season and into the holidays. 

Email me if you ever have a need for family portraits! I’ll be offering a day of mini-sessions in the spring so keep a look out for that on Instagram after the holidays come and go! 


Essl Home Modern Interiors

My talented friend Lauren Essl of Blue Eye Brown Eye recently moved here to Seattle and after her & her husband remodeled their new home, she asked if I would capture the home before they move all their stuff in. Every detail of her space is to die for and getting to photograph the space pre-furniture was such a fun experience. It allowed me to focus on the details they poured their hearts into rather than focusing on styled nooks and crannies like usual….although don’t get me wrong, I can’t wait to photograph it again once all their gorgeous belongings are in place. 

Two Frames: Min + Yejin at Mt. Rainier

These two brave souls decided to hike around Mt. Rainier the day after their wedding. These are only two of the many favorites I have from this day and soon I’ll share a full post of them!
