Brittany & Matt | Pickering Barn | Issaquah, WA

I met Brittany and Matt back in March for their engagement session and we instantly connected. They were so fun to work with!! Their big day quickly approached and the day couldn't have been more beautiful. The Pickering Barn in Issaquah, WA is such a perfect place!! 

Brittany was really hoping to avoid a "first look", wanting Matt to see her for the first time walking down the aisle, but feared there wouldn't be enough time during the cocktail hour for all of the scheduled photos. I make it my priority to deliver what the bride and groom sees as their "perfect day." Do not feel forced to see each other prior to the ceremony because of time. It is my job to make it all work out, as smoothly as possible. With a great second shooter by my side, we rocked that cocktail hour and didn't go a minute over. Brittany and Matt got their dream wedding and I am happy I was there to help capture the memories. Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Cates!!

Kelly & Jeff | Brown Family Homestead | Leavenworth, WA

Kelly and Jeff got married in Leavenworth, WA at the Brown Family Homestead. What a GORGEOUS location!! It was absolutely worth the commute for my second shooter {aka hubby} and me, and, we really hope to have more weddings there in the future. Besides the beautiful hill top views and tall grassy fields, there is also a perfect waterfront spot just a tiny drive from the venue. We definitely took advantage of that immediately following the ceremony, which was perfect for the bride and groom to enjoy a private moment together before jumping into the reception. 

Kelly and Jeff were absolutely made for each other. Their personalities are just adorable!!! Both of them were pretty nervous throughout the day, losing a little track of the timeline and such, but I am so happy to have been there with Cameron to smooth it all out, beginning to end. I know the 2 of them are going to have a very happy life together with their kitty babies!! Thank you so much, Kelly & Jeff, for having us be such a big part of your big day!

Amy & Arvid | Sidetrack Distillery | Kent, WA

This day couldn't come soon enough. After having one amazing engagement session with these two, I just knew their wedding was going to be a day to remember for all of us!! I was over-the-moon ecstatic that Amy and Arvid put their trust in me to capture one of the most important days of their lives at the Sidetrack Distillery {aka Lazy River Farm} in Kent, WA. Did I mention this was my very first large wedding as the primary photographer?! I have worked years for this moment, so I thank these two so much for allowing me and my second shooter {aka hubby} to be apart of such a big day.

Beginning to end, Amy & Arvid glowed with happiness and we absolutely adored every minute. I will never forget the dedication dance to her father who is no longer here with us... dancing to the fun and upbeat song of "Cheeseburger in Paradise" with all of the special men in her life put such a big smile and crazy amounts of tears on everyone's face; a moment I will never forget as a photographer. Congratulations, Amy and Arvid!!! I wish you many more years of happiness together.
