This past spring I had an amazing opportunity to work as a Photo Editor Intern under Seattle Bride Magazine's Art Director Alicia Nammacher and Editor and Chief Sally Farhat Kassab. It was a wonderful experience getting to work with these ladies and their team. I did image collection and selection for some of the major features of the Fall/Winter 2010 issue. This issue was incredibly special to work on for two reasons; one it was Sally's first issue as Editor and Chief, and two it was the "Best of Bride"...

Willows Lodge Hotel June, 2010 It was such a lovely weekend. Even though it was cloudy the rain held off and I had such amazing light for the wedding on Saturday! The weather was perfectly cool, and there was an amazing mixture of aromas from the lavender, to the herbs, to the wood burning fireplaces...

Wedding Season officially starts for me this weekend:) After a long week of working and shooting I'm super super excited to be finally shooting a wedding. Plus I get to work with an amazing lady Sharlane Chase:) Should be a fantastic time! Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Cheers!...

We all want to look the best we've ever looked on our wedding day, and I think the true "Bridal Glow" comes from knowing that their cup runneth over with love and happiness. There is nothing more beautiful then a woman who is joyful and content. Here is some of the "Bridal Glows" I had the pleasure of capturing this past season. Happy Friday. ...

  "The most dangerous food in the world is wedding cake!" -James Thurber I know this quote could have a couple different meanings, but for me it's quite simple.  If I ate a piece of cake at every wedding I attended in a year I would have to be rolled out of the reception hall! People who know me well know that I have quite the sweet tooth, and cake is one of my favorite things...

I love it when couples don't do all the traditional wedding things and really make their wedding day their own.  Do what feels right for you, do what makes the day feel like YOUR day. Charlene and Larry did just that. They walked each other down the aisle which was incredibly special and unique, and immediately following the ceremony they did a champagne toast in the garden instead of at the reception. There where personal touches everywhere, from wooden ice cream tokens from the store Charlene used to work at...

Well here it is. The day has finally arrived. My first blog post, I can hardly believe it. I’ve been so resistant to starting a blog in the past and mainly for the simple reason of “what do I talk about.” I thought I’m not starting a blog until I can sit down and make an un-ending list of things I want to genuinely talk about, discuss, and share.  I’m not the best writer, and the thought of having to be informative and witty on a regular basis was too much pressure. Plus the spell check alone was daunting to me! So what’s changed you say….well not that much but In a years time I’ve somehow found my voice. I thought turning 25 would mean I finally feel like an adult…settled…confident……WRONG. In fact it was quite the opposite. I was in the midst of the grey area, living somewhere I didn’t want to be, not sure which way to dedicate my time career wise. Well a big move later and another year of shooting weddings under my belt, and I feel like I have some clarity. I feel “at home” and inspired here in Seattle and I finally find myself ready to share.
