Seattle Engagement Session: Brittany and Ben

OH, how I loved this engagement session!

Meet Ben and Brittany. Aren’t they flippin’ cute?!

I had been dying to shoot in the SODO district.  I am so in love with the colorful walls, grungy industrial buildings, and city views.  It’s definitely one of my favorite Seattle neighborhoods, so I was stoked when Brittany and Ben gave the thumbs up.  Aside from having such sweet chemistry together, they were up for anything- two things that always make for great engagement pictures.

And the winner is…

Wow!  You guys are awesome!  It was SO much fun hearing from everyone!  Comments make my day, so you made my day 300 times this week.  🙂

It was sooooooo close.  Like, crazy close.  I had to count them three times to make sure.  But after all the votes were tallied, Megan and Mike (#16) are walking home with a $300 gift card to KHP.  But because it was such a tight race, I’m throwing in a 16×24 gallery wrapped canvas for Trisha and Jake (#32).

And the $100 gift card for our comment winner goes to comment #62- Chris, who wrote “My vote goes to #14… Jon and Stacey”.

Thanks so much to everyone who voted, and thank you again to all the couples who trusted me with their wedding images this year! 


I adore you all. 

Thank you.

Can’t wait to see what 2011 brings my way!!

Craven Farm DIY Wedding: Eva + Trevor | Snohomish, WA

When Eva first contacted me a full 15 months before her wedding date, I knew I would love working with her.  Eva is one of the most joyful people I’ve met.  She has a passion for live, and boy, does she love her man!

Over the next year, I loved getting emails from her updating me on all the wedding plans.  One week she was making chalkboards.  The next week she was collecting vintage handkerchiefs for her guests’ tears of joy.  The next week she was gathering tea cups and blue glass vases.  The following, she was personalizing a set of converse sneakers for each of Trevor’s groomsmen with their names across the side.  Did I mention she made personalized hangers for each of her bridesmaids to hang their dress with?  I don’t know where in the world she found the energy/creativity/drive, but this girl worked her tail off to put together one of the most adorable DIY weddings I’ve seen.

The walls of the reception were lined with old photos of friends/family- strung with clothes pins.  The tables were adorned with Frost Doughnuts, for a non-traditional and OH SO YUMMY wedding dessert.  Hand painted signs on old wood directed guests to the food, beverage, and yes, even ‘the loo’.  And amidst all the thoughtful and labor-intensive decor, love was so very present.  Happy tears flowed throughout the day, and their smiles never stopped beaming.

Eva and Trevor- I am SO INCREDIBLY happy for you two.  I cannot wait to see what great treasures life has in store for your sweet family.  I’m so lucky to have had the chance to celebrate with you that day.

For more pictures, and a little more from Eva’s perspective, check out the 2011 Spring/Summer issue of Seattle Bride Magazine.  On shelves now.

Seattle Wedding Photographer: A year in review

Wow.  2010 was an amazing year.  I can’t even begin to describe how lucky I feel to be doing something I love.  Weekend after weekend, I went to joyful celebrations (and rockin’ parties!), all in the name of LOVE.

To my 2010 Brides and Grooms-

I am so deeply honored and excited to have witnessed it all.  The speeches, the vows, the laughter, and your crazy aunt on the dance floor.  I can’t believe the weddings this year- oh, how I loved seeing bits and pieces of who you are incorporated into your day.  But most of all, I feel so blessed that you chose me to document those memories for you.  I know you have a large selection when it comes to photographers, and I thank you for trusting me with such an important task.  I don’t know how I am so lucky to work with such rad couples.  Seriously.  THANK YOU.  You rock.

To my 2010 Portrait Clients-

Where do I begin?  You’ve invited me into your homes, let me play with your kids, cuddle your babies, and laugh with your family.  I am giddy with excitement to see how your kiddos have grown with each mile stone.  Some of you are on your 5th, 6th and 7th portrait sessions with me, and I am SO INCREDIBLY GRATEFUL for your loyalty over these past few years.  You’ve passed my name to your best friends and family, and there is just no greater compliment than that.  I am SO THANKFUL for your support.

Thank you all for your emails, your blog comments, your FB posts.  I am looking forward to another year of fun!

SO, this post took me FOREVER to put together.  It was agonizing to choose only one image from each wedding, and I was easily derailed- sifting through your images and smiling at the fun you had.  So I’ve decided that if I’m going to spend a million years on one blog post, I had better give away some free stuff!  SO, here’s the deal-

Vote for your favorite image by leaving a comment on this post with the image number.  The image with the most votes has a $300 GIFT CARD going to it’s corresponding Bride and Groom.  Use it towards your wedding album, prints, or a future portrait session.  And I can’t let the newlyweds have all the fun, so one of the voters is going to win a $100 GIFT CARD too!  I’ll use a random number picker to choose the comment winner- so make sure you use a legit email.  Voting ends 1/13 at midnight, Seattle time. One vote per person, please.

And if you haven’t all ready, march on over to the FACEBOOK PAGE and become a fan so you never miss another opportunity to win!  (And because I love to hear from you!)
