#RAYSYOURGLASS /// Cody+Jordan previews

Cody+Jordan. 06.24.17 /// I will 100% be blogging this full wedding later but I am too excited not to share a few now. Washington experienced a little heat wave last weekend and it was HOT - a 98 degree day in Chehalis during this wedding. My most organized brides are always either teachers or photographers and this one happens to be BOTH, so naturally this wedding was perfect. It's always nerve-wracking shooting weddings for other photographers, but Jordan and Cody planned the dream wedding that couldn't be more fun to photograph. I swear their entire town was there celebrating them and it was such a party. This was a special one and I can't wait to share more. 

MR. AND MRS. RAY Y'ALL!

SHANE&LINDSAY

Shane & Lindsay. A dreary Pacific Northwest spring day made a bit brighter by these two and their marriage. It stopped raining long enough to have the ceremony outside and the reception was the perfect cozy party with the sound of rain pounding on the roof. The perfect day.

Venue: Woodstock Farm / Florals: Pozie by Natalie / Makeup: Love Beauty  / Wedding Gown: Alicia's Bridal

Josh & ErinAnn | Bellingham Wedding

ErinAnn + Josh. Married 01.15.17. There's nothing quite like getting to photograph a friends wedding. ErinAnn has been an important part of my life since I was 20 and it was truly such an honor to capture this day. She planned such a beautiful, cozy, winter wedding and made it exactly what her and Josh wanted: an intimate gathering of their closest family and friends filled with delicious brunch and lots of speeches. She was such a beautiful bride and I am obsessed with her dress - not quite white, kind of grey/blue, and very elegant. I am so proud of my friend and adore the partner she chose to spend her life with.

Martha & Thad | Orcas Island Wedding

10.08.16 /// Martha and Thad. This one was a special one. One of the first that come to mind when people ask me about my favorite weddings I've photographed. These two are so connected to one another; their love is so deep and pure and it's clear to anyone around them. I really don't think I've ever photographed two people who were so present during their ceremony - it truly seemed like they were the only two people on that island. Through my whole process working with them: our initial meeting, their engagement shoot... whenever I left my time with them I always said "omg they love each other SO much - that was so fun!" Their wedding was no different. Surrounded by a close group of local and out-of-town family and friends, these two said their vows on Orcas Island where Thad grew up. Family-style dinner where everyone sat together on long tables and served themselves of serving platters. Family and friends staying in big houses on the island together. It felt like a big family reunion and the best party of the year. The rain didn't stop them from wanting to adventure out to the lake and I am SO glad a little PNW drizzle (downpour) didn't ruin their day. Because it was perfect; and these are some of my favorite images I've ever created.

Andy & Lauren | Pacific Northwest Winter Engagement Session

Lauren and Andy's engagement session was my last shoot of the year and such a dope way to end out 2016. I really don't like being cold but this cozy winter PNW shoot was probably my favorite engagement session I shot this year. These two are sooooo sweet and love each other so much and I can't wait to shoot their wedding next year - it's going to be a good one!

Cody & Susannah | Snohomish Wedding at Dairyland

9.24.16 /// Cody + Susannah. #sorrynotsorry in advance... this blog post is a long one. This was one of my favorite weddings of the year for a lot of reasons. I feel such a strong connection to these two, probably because I had my first slumber party with a couple for their engagement shoot in Winthrop. When you spend 10 hours in a car with a couple, hang out with their friends for the weekend, stay in their hunting bunker with them... you're bound to become pretty close. This wedding felt like a fun reunion between friends (yay). From a photographers perspective, I love everything about how Susannah planned her wedding day.

This wedding was featured on Seattle Bride Magazine, check it out!
