The world's cutest family award goes to these three! I have captured this couple in many different ways over the years, but as a family with Emilia is hands down my favorite. They're one of the most genuine couples I have ever met and are extraordinary parents. They're truly a family we admire and are grateful they're part of our lives.
I absolutely adore this maternity session. Their style is so classic and I love that they chose this look for their shoot. The images are so romantic and their connection is so effortless. The images of Lindsay on her own are definitely favorites of mine. Her white dress was stunning! Shortly after this session they welcomed their baby boy and I am so happy for them.
I recently had the pleasure of photographing the ladies of New Creations. They're Seattle’s only wedding planning company specializing in Filipino, Chinese, Japanese, and Hawaiian weddings, however they'll happily work with anyone. Their approach is warm and genuine, and one of having a friend help you plan your wedding rather than a hired company. Offering everything from Full Design & Planning to Final Planning & Day-of Coordination services, I've seen what these talented women can do. With our over 13 years experience, they are knowledgeable, professional, and really fun to work with!
Boudoir continues to be one of my absolute favorite things to shoot. Jillian messaged me about doing this as a gift for her husband, but it was also something she wanted to do for herself. I think that's what I like most about these types of sessions. I love connecting with women, shooting them one on one in the studio, and ultimately helping them see their own unique beauty. I'm so excited every time I deliver a session and love the reactions to the photos. Having images that make you feel good about yourself is important. My collaboration with Jillian was perfect. I think these photos are a wonderful expression of who she is.
It was a beautiful day at Alpental for this snowy shoot. Kelly & Michael looked fabulous (although I'm sure they were freezing) and I even scored some pancakes from the Pancake House. Pretty much the perfect day. I can't wait for their wedding next year!
A few months ago we ventured out of the city to explore the Gorge and shoot Lila & Steven's engagement session. Not only was it a great way to get to know them (who doesn't bond over avoiding rattlesnakes) but the photos turned out amazing! This was truly one of my favorite shoots last year and I cannot wait to share their wedding with you in a few weeks!
It's hard to know where to start when writing about this wedding. It was full of heart, kindness was abundant, and the little moments were as important as the big ones. Weddings are full of things to do, people to see, and traditions to follow. Sometimes it's hard to stay in the moment with those things swirling around you, but Molly & Jon were able to. It was a pleasure from beginning to end to capture their celebration. It's weddings like these that make us love what we do.
A special thanks to Amanda Rose for her thoughtful planning and design, to Axis for always being pleasure to work with, and Iris and Gold for amazing hair & makeup.
