Jim and Kelsey's wedding was a ton of fun. The day was filled with laughter and hilarious surprises. It was a cold November day but we braved the elements for some lovely portraits on the grounds at Cedarbrook Lodge. I was thrilled to get to share in their big day and had the best time getting to know their lovely families. Congratulations Kelsey and Jim. I wish you many more years filled with love and laughter! Then this happened!! I was laughing so hard I'm surprised I got an in focus...

Some might tell you that Seattle is a lot like San Francisco, just smaller of course. Having spent lots of time in both cities I will tell you that I do agree. Both sit on a bay, great seafood, foggy/cloudy a lot of the time, hubs for the creative folk such as myself;) Both cities hold a very special place in my heart, and even though I call Seattle my home, I'm missing a little San Fran in my life! So here's a sampling of some images I took on...

On June 17th I had the great pleasure of documenting Paul and Lynn Schontzler's special day. We had beautiful weather for the ceremony and reception held at the Robinswood House in Bellevue, Washington. Lynn is such a classic beauty and both her and Paul were so relaxed and steady the whole day. Their first look was incredibly touching and both were very much at ease in front of my lens. A photographer's dream! Both Paul and Lynn are blessed with wonderful, loving families all of whom made their wedding day...

Julia and Ryan are a fun laid back couple, and I had the best time shooting their engagement photos! My good friend and fellow photographer Laura Marchbanks asked if I wanted to come along to shoot an engagement session with her, and I'm so glad I did because not only did we have a wonderful time, but I got to meet two wonderful people in the process. We started off at the Pikes Place market in downtown Seattle, then made our way to West Seattle. It was a gloomy day...

I know I have lots of posts to catch up on but I just HAD to share an image from the amazing engagement session I did with Courtney and Jaime this weekend.  Talk about a couple who are madly in love! This is the last shot of the day and probably one of my all time favorite shots...

Here is a tiny sneak peek of Jenn and Brett's San Luis Obispo wedding last weekend. Jenn taking my picture;) Mel and I had an amazing time shooting this gorgeous couple. The whole bridal party and the families where so incredibly nice and welcoming, and we couldn't have asked for a more amazing Bride and Groom! The full wedding will be posted in the near future:) Cheers!...
