Tim & Ellie | 4.21.18
They met when he interviewed her for a job at Amazon. Both graphic designers, they quickly bonded over fonts and 'dorky' design things. After daily coffee outings and some accidental dates, Tim left his place of work and they started dating.
Three years later, they married at Trinity Tree Farm in Issaquah, WA. A perfectly dreary Pacific Northwest spring day was the perfect backdrop for their intimate and emotional celebration. Ellie + Tim are the real deal, the kind of couple when you're around them you're like OKAY YOU GUYS LOVE EACH OTHER A LOTTTT. Their closest family and friends gathered under the rain and celebrated their marriage and it was perfect.
They put their graphic design skills to work while creating their perfect celebration. They designed and hand letter-pressed their invitations (I don't even totally understand what that means but they turned out BEAUTIFUL!). They created every sign and design element together and it's really incredible what they did together. WHAT A COOL WAY TO START MARRIAGE AMIRIGHT
Stephanie+Ethan / 4.14.18
Seattle brides... take notes, because Stephanie and Ethan planned a KILLER celebration. Rain was on the forecast for the entire weekend (and it raiiiiined. HARD). Stephanie booked out this dopeeeeeeeee Airbnb in Pioneer Square to get ready in, which created such a rad and unique environment to do all their portraits+first look since it was too wet to shoot outside. No one was even disappointed with the weather because we had this fun dreamy space to shoot in. I really can't emphasize enough how having a cool environment to get ready in can transform your wedding gallery and also provide a perfect plan b if the weather sucks. It was such a fun space to shoot in - would y'all hate me if I said it was happy it was pouring so we were forced to shoot inside all morning?!?!?!?
They started their day by reading private vows to each other right after first look. They were my first couple to do this and it was such a special + intimate time for the two of them before the craziness of the day kicked in. If you're one of those couples who feels nervous about reading vows in front of your guests.... guess what?! You don't have to! There are no rules and you can do whatever the hell you want. :)
Their venue, the Great Hall at Green Lake, was the perfect space for a cozy + rainy day. Everything inside (hallelujah) with gorgeous window light and big white walls. The perfect clean canvas to create the celebration of your dreams.Read More

Aaron + Tiffany / Joshua Tree, California.
I've known for a long time that this was going to be my favorite wedding and it didn't disappoint. Not only are these two friends of mine crazy stylish and gorgeous, but Tiffany is an insanely talented weaver (she made the ceremony backdrop herself) and space/installation designer. I don't even know what you would call that, but everything you see here she did herself. From the hand lettering of all the signs, designing/drawing of the invitations, creating the big hexagon shapes from scratch.. I know I'm not saying any of this right but she is so talented. I have some of her wall weavings in my office and you can find her work on her website or Instagram.
Shooting this wedding was like photographing the most epic styled shoot of all time, except it was real life, AND I got to hang out with my best friends all weekend. IT WAS THE BEST.I'll be blogging more about this wedding later, there's SO MUCH to share, but in the meantime, here's a lil preview of my fav day ever.Read More

05.27.17. Jim+Alyssa /// These two met while running a marathon in Vegas. A marathon. I've run *one* half marathon, and I was in NO condition to meet the love of my life. But they did. They started out running the race together - "meet me at the finish line," they said. I can't get that line out of my head after I heard during their ceremony. I hear a LOT of love stories - and this one is probably one of my favorites.Read More

Tim and Val's story began in middle school - the kind of on-again-off-again love where they always ended up coming back to each other. They were planning their big fairytale wedding for later this year when they found out they were pregnant. They moved their wedding up so they'd be married before the baby came, planned a wedding in less than 2 months, and it was the most special and intimate day I've ever been apart of. A wedding on the beach with their closest family and friends followed by a brewery party where they did their GENDER REVEAL. The most incredible day full of celebration for their marriage and their baby girl on the way. Tim and Val - I am so excited for you and your growing family!!!!! It was such an honor to photograph such a special day. STILL CRYING OVER THESE!
