A Library Inspired Engagement Shoot | CNU

  • John + Lisa | Engaged

you remember last Friday? If you are in Virginia, it was a nasty day. Torrential downpours, grey skies and it was going to stay that way ALL DAY. The problem with this was that I was driving down to my alma mater for an engagement session. This shoot wasn’t something we could reschedule because John and Lisa traveled from NEW YORK to have these done on campus!! I will admit that as my windshield wipers were going at full speed on the drive down, I was a little concerned. However, I can honestly say that despite the rain, this is one of my favorite campus engagement sessions!

And LA / Las Vegas Signups!

  • Seattle Coaching Huddle

over a week ago, we were in rainy Seattle. It was Tuesday morning and we were prepping our hotel suite for the arrival of four amazing gals! This was our first coaching huddle and to be honest, I wasn’t nervous because I knew that this was going to be a GREAT day. 4 girls, 8 hours of chatting and information sharing…. catered Cheesecake factory?! What could possibly go wrong?! I was right, it was an amazing huddle. 8 hours flew by but so much was covered during our time together! What I loved most about the huddle was that the pressure wasn’t on one person to carry the conversation.

A Chihuly Museum Engagement Session | Seattle Wedding Photographer

  • Zach + Britta | Engaged

again, we are working with another bride who LOVES photography! I knew Britta and I would be a great pair when she emailed me asking me about her ceremony location and the direction of the sun. She wanted to make sure the lighting would be perfect! My kind of girl!!! :) Britta is a photographer and she is marrying her high school sweetheart outside of Seattle next year! Zach and Britta are the sweetest couple… so in love and so ready to start their new life together! We absolutely loved meeting up with them in Seattle for their engagement session.
