This post is going to be a long one! It’s been over two years since we secretly planned with Michael to turn a boyfriend + girlfriend portrait session into a proposal and engagement session – how many couples can say that they had their engagement session the second that they were engaged? (Well, if anyone […]

Tara & Rhonda’s mid-summer wedding at Austin’s peerless Hotel Saint Cecilia was simply perfect! From the storybook-style late evening golden sunlight during their ceremony, to the endless laughs and smiles throughout – and of course, a little bed-jumping to finish off the night – we couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend a […]

Neesha & Tyler’s wedding day was filled beginning-to-end with greatness. From their early morning Christian ceremony at Chapel Dulcinea to their traditional Indian evening celebration (with colors to die for!) at Mercury Hall, the laughs & smiles never stopped.

Our first trip out to Roche Harbor Resort was a stunner! While a heat wave of record-breaking proportions was baking the rest of the country, we were surrounded by cool waters and snow-covered mountains in the distance – it doesn’t get much better than San Juan Island. Ashley & Andrew scouted out a secluded cliff-side […]

Kiku & Satyam’s fantastic wedding was just about the most perfect way imaginable to close out the year – 2 days of vivid colors, energetic dancing, amazing music, delicious food, hilarity on a hoverboard, and…wigs. What more could you want? Not even a little rain could stop the fun. Is it possible to request that every wedding […]

Jessica & Max…oh wow, we’ve been counting the days until we could have this one ready to share!

Hotel Saint Cecilia is, simply put, a photographer’s dream – all of the amazingly rich colors and textures make each and every room unique, and of course, there’s that famous pool!

When you’re used to traveling all over the city/state/country for weddings, it’s a special kind of amazing to have the chance to be a part of one that’s literally steps from your front door! Especially so when it’s for an awesome couple like Travis & Chris, who we’d already run all over Ballard with this […]

It’s that time of year (the short, short days of winter…) when we like to pause, take some time to look back on the previous year, and share a few weddings from the last 12-ish months. Some of those weddings, like Stephanie & Adrian’s, took place in that time long forgotten that we call summer, […]

Courtney & Alex were one of the first couples that we met after our move to Seattle, and their engagement session is still one of our all-time favorites.

We’ve been looking forward to Carly & Dave’s wedding at The Fremont Foundry for months! Carly & Dave seemed like they were going to be tons of fun from day one, and they definitely were, not only humoring our silly requests for photos with dinosaur topiaries and flipperless orca statues, but pretty much filling the […]
