Guys I’m just going to come out and say it, I fucking love engagement sessions! Don’t get me wrong, I love shooting weddings and elopements too, but there’s just something different and special about that relaxed and carefree energy of an engagement session. I actually love engagement sessions so much that I pretty much insist […]

Why I love engagement sessions

A little over a week ago I participated my first ever styled shoot. Sure I had done a few shoots in the past that I put together that were “styled” in the sense that we put a vision into motion, but nothing like this! It was awesome to work collaboratively with other professionals to create […]

Silvara Winery – Leavenworth Washington – Winter Wedding styled shoot

Having not grown up in Seattle there are a lot of little hidden gems that I’m still learning about. Lincoln Park in West Seattle is one of them! It is located adjacent to the Vashon Island ferry, and is an amazing park that wraps around the coastline of the Puget Sound as well as some […]

Lincoln Park – Seattle Engagement Session

Franklin Falls is one of those spots that is so popular it’s almost not worth going to most days. It’s close to Seattle (about an hour), a relatively short hike (a little over 2 miles) and not very difficult. On any day with decent weather you’ll see dozens of people, and on a weekend it […]

I met up with Leah and Justin just outside of Vantage Washington at the Wild Horses monument that is up on a hill overlooking the Columbia River and interstate 90.

Stunning Vantage Washington Engagement Session

BUT going someplace amazing in the mountains in the snow is just extra special. I really love Gold Creek Pond all year, but it’s especially amazing in the snow during winter. Aside […]

Snowy Engagement at Gold Creek Pond

To say that this has been a weird and challenging year would be the biggest understatement imaginable. But that hasn’t stopped so many couples from still going through with their plans to get married and say I do, even if it meant that it throwing the original plans out the window and adapting to the […]

Lincoln Park – Seattle Elopement

To say I was over the top stoked when Lisa reached out to me about photographing her surprise proposal at Mount Rainier this summer would be an understatement. She described her vision to me, and I knew this was going to be amazing, and something I wanted to be a part of! So we started […]

Mount Rainier Proposal

This fall I met up with Crystal and Kendrick in Seattle for some awesome engagement photos on a beautiful but COLD day! We met up first at a brand new park on Portage Bay near the University of Washington called Fitz Hedges Waterway park. I had actually never heard of it, but Crystal found it […]
