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.

Our Hawaiian Vacation

  • Aloha Vaca 2013 | Part 2

hard to believe that the trip we had been looking forward to for so long is over! I mentioned in the “part one” post that this wasn’t really a “Lay on the beach all day” type of vacation. We SAW a lot and we DID a lot! I mean, when are we going to be back in Oahu, Hawaii again?! Not anytime soon. This was a once in a lifetime type of trip. Two young couples with a week to explore an amazing island…it doesn’t get much better than that! We had an absolute BLAST and we fit as much as we possibly could into every single day! We’re so thankful that we have such awesome friends that make great travel buddies!

A Hawaiian Engagement Session | Lanikai Beach, Oahu

  • Erik + Meagan | Engaged

months ago, I blogged about some BIG dreams. I threw some crazy ones out there like shooting a wedding in Italy, visiting Australia and last but not least… shooting a session Hawaii! Welp! Mark one of those items off the list!! I love how God works things out. I blogged about that and then one of our sweet friends from high school got in engaged! And guess where she lives…. HAWAII! Not only does she live in Hawaii, she lives on Oahu and was flying in the DAY we were going to be flying out! Despite the limited time frame, we made a shoot happen on the beautiful beaches of Lanikai!! Meagan and Erik look the part of a perfect beachy couple living the dream in Hawaii!
