Two days before Christmas I had the pleasure of photographing Jon and Susan in my hometown of Littleton, CO. Jon is a childhood friend of mine and when he asked if I would photograph his wedding I couldn’t have been more excited! Jon and Susan met while attending the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland and I CAN’T WAIT for their wedding there this July!

I was thrilled when Jon mentioned he was going to be bringing Susan to Colorado for Christmas and decided to hop on a plane and fly to Denver to photograph their engagement session. We were given such a beautiful snowy day as our backdrop…a little cold…but so worth it! I have a friend who lives on a magical piece of property up Deer Creek Canyon and was incredibly thankful she allowed us to shoot up there. Jerry Lee her German Shepherd decided to join in on our fun, as well as a few looky-loo deer! Jon and Susan are such a great match…let’s just say I didn’t have to coach them on when to kiss and when to smile…they did lots of that all on their own.

I feel beyond lucky to call these two friends and I’m so humbled to document such a special time in their lives!

Here are a few of my favorites from their session and you can also check out their feature on Style Me Pretty here.


The moment I met Kelsey and Jim I knew we were going to be fast friends. I don’t think I’ve ever smiled or laughed as much during an engagement session….ever! We met at the Ballard Locks and despite a few rain drops at the beginning Kelsey, Jim and I had the best time. I am so looking forward to their wedding in November. If their engagement session is any indication of how fun and fabulous their wedding is going to be then I know I am in for one good time!! Kelsey and Jim are such a pleasure to be around. Their smiles and laughter are infectious and I have been warned that their bridal party is just as much fun! They are true best friends and so in love, their wedding is going to be truly heartwarming….I’m already starting to tear up!!

Here are some of my favorites from their session. Happy Monday!KJ_1KJ_2


It was a GORGEOUS day in Tacoma, WA! Sunny and in the 60's! That's unheard of in these parts this time of year so the weather Gods were on our side:) I met Toni and Brent at Point Defiance Park, and being that it was...
