Jamie+Amanda - A day spent exploring the Anza-Borrego desert, followed by a long drive home listening to true crime podcasts together. Dream day.Read More
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!Read More
Ashley + Andrew /// These high school sweethearts took me to Mt. Adams for their engagement session. And let me tell ya, this kinda thing is what I live for. There's a reason I don't charge my wedding couples extra for "adventure sessions" or anything extra for the distance. I want to take the time and hang out, to shoot in new places, to go to places important to them. In this case, a mountain they've spent quite a bit of time on and the place he proposed to her. I want to leave the session better friends than when we entered it. Spending 12 hours together for a shoot is a reeeeeal good way to do that - even if that means spending the entire day together after a double wedding weekend. :)Read More
Jordan + Cody in Chehalis /// When I got Jordan's wedding inquiry, I was pretty stoked to say the least. Jordan is photographer based in the Chehalis area who I had the opportunity to work with back when I was offering videography services at weddings. It's always SUCH a trip to be hired by other photographers; it is seriously such an honor and the biggest compliment and I'm not sure I'll ever get used to it. Not to mention they are a gorgeous couple so selfishly I love photographing them. When they got engaged, I immediately thought "damn, it would be so dope to shoot that wedding," never expecting to actually get an inquiry from her. Needless to say, I am pretty stoked to be their wedding photographer and can't wait for their wedding next year!
I was thrilled to meet them in Chehalis for their engagement session. I got to see and shoot in some of their favorite spots and the place he proposed. Some of my favorite engagement shoots result from me having no idea what to expect or where we are going; I love just being along for the ride and stopping somewhere that speaks to me.
Enjoy, and keep your eyes peeled for their wedding next year because it's going to be dope and amazing.Read More
Alex & Ryan's wedding was one of my favorites. The breathtaking scenery, the brides stunning dress... it made it hard not to love. But what was most amazing of all was how much it felt like them. Friends, family, and the wedding party were able to stay in the cabins for the weekend and enjoy themselves. Dogs running around. It felt like summer camp (with booze and way better food). It was so chill and the best party.Read More
