It's not often that when a photographer sends you "sneak peek" photos you cry and laugh and then cry and laugh some more. Lyynsey of Lion Lady Photography sent the best sneak peek album ever! I just couldn't wait! I had to share them.

I should start off by saying that Izzy + Porter were the greatest! The most laid back, care free, and silly couple to date. They trusted all of their vendors 100% and it was one of those creative freedom weddings where they just said "go with it!" The first time I met Izzy, she told me "Sorry Porter couldn't make it, he's playing D&D". I laughed and said "I like you guys already!" From there, Erika of The Greatest Adventure Weddings and I had a blast working on their design together.

A bright and cheery color palette mixed with a private waterfront venue made their day extra special. I even collaborated on their arbor with Izzy's Dad Dave. Their wedding is truly one for the books! See all of the magic below.

Thank you Izzy and Porter!

Another amazing couple, adorable pups and some fun greenery ideas (as seen in Seattle Bride Magazine). Jordyn & Jeff were down to earth, funny as hell, and so in love. They also happened to be science enthusiasts, so we incorporated beakers, Erlenmeyer flasks, dinosaurs and other gizmos & gadgets in to their decor. SO FUN! To date it is one of my favorite designs, and I'm so grateful for the opportunity I had to work with them.

Thanks you Jordyn & Jeff!

Fall in Love | Styled Shoot

It's my favorite time of year. Leaves are falling, pumpkin patches are over flowing, and the never ending season of hot coffee and scarves is upon us!  It is the perfect season for golden hour light, natural wind, and a romantic shoot in the great outdoors.

Erika of The Greatest Adventure Weddings and I put together a non-traditional pumpkin patch shoot with a really, really wonderful vendor team, and it turned out to be one of my favorite shoots of the year.

Lora + Max

Sometimes the best things come together unexpectedly, and at the last minute. Lora and Max contacted me shortly before their wedding explaining that their florist had cancelled and they were in need of a new florist. I am SO glad that they reached out. Lora and Max were both kind, grateful, and so in love. They shared intimate gifts with one another before their first look at the altar. Alex Lasota captured their day so beautifully. All of the small details, smiles and one of the cutest bridal party pups to date are below!

Boheme Bath Maternity Shoot

An opportunity to collaborate with local vendors for a "Milk Bath" shoot was on my long list of to-do's for this Spring. I could not have asked for a better team to work with. The end result truly blew me away.
