Lacey & Steve’s Discovery Park Wedding: Seattle Bride Magazine Feature

One of the best parts about my job is getting to know my couples. How they met, how they got engaged, their hopes and dreams for their future as man and wife…it’s incredibly special. Then to document and experience that day with them is such a gift. It’s hard to walk away from a shared […]


Sharon & Kanishk’s Napa Wedding

I don’t second shoot too often anymore, but when my dear friend Melanie Duerkopp calls I can never say no! We’ve been friends since college and even lived together in New York…back in the day when we were conquering the world;) The universe in some way or another draws me to San Fransisco at least […]


Sara & Stephen’s Rainier Chapter House Wedding: Style Me Pretty Feature

Sara and Stephen were a joy to work with from start to finish. They were so relaxed and trusting which for any photographer is a complete treat. The entire day felt very effortless. Nothing was overdone. From the stunning flowers by Fena Flowers, to the stacks of library books each individually covered with sparkly crate […]


Paper Photoshoot and Review for Wedding Paperie & Purple Trail

I LOVE fine paper and stationery. I mean I might have a problem…I’m that obsessed. So when Anna Carriveau of Wedding Paperie and Purple Trail asked me to do a guest post reviewing some of their photo cards I jumped at the chance! I love a good photo card. I think at least one piece […]


Ginger Snaps and Peonies

Justin and I celebrated 2 years of marriage on Monday. After spending 7 years together prior to marriage it still feels weird to say such a low number like 2….we’ve almost been together a decade! The last two years however have really flown by. From an amazing honeymoon in Spain, to moving into a lovely […]


Annie & Norm Pike Place Market Engagement Session

The best part about my job….meeting fun and fabulous couples and being able to show them with a photograph how palpable, lovely and contagious the love they share really is. From the second I met Annie and Norm I knew they were going to be fun. Both are totally comfortable in their own skin, up […]


Jared and Kelly: Sculpture Park Wedding

Documenting weddings is such a huge honor for any wedding photographer, but when we get asked to be one of just a few that get to witness such a special moment it becomes a very personal and special occasion even for us. When Jared and Kelley asked me to photographer their ceremony at the Olympic […]


Our Wedding by KT Merry: Part Two

The day before our wedding I was faced with a decision….tent or no tent. Thankfully I had put a tent on reserve several months prior knowing that having your wedding outdoors means you better have a rain plan. That Friday before I was sitting in the salon and watched the chance of rain go from […]


Our Wedding by KT Merry: Part One

Last year on May 12th I married my long time boyfriend Justin in a beautiful ceremony in Rosemary Beach, FL. I am now officially Mrs. Parra, which is so rad! I made the decision last summer to legally change my name, and I then decided to encompass all of my work into one website. I […]


Missing San Fran!

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 […]
