This is the reason I shoot weddings. This wedding right here.

It’s not too often I catch myself feeling a little emotional during a wedding ceremony or during toasts at the wedding reception. But these two guys, and their two amazing kids, managed to make me feel that lump in my throat. I am so happy and honored that I was able to document Michael and Christian’s wedding celebration. This family deserved this day so much. SO much. After 18 years together, Michael and Christian were finally able to legally wed. And celebrate, and drink, and laugh and party with their friends and family. Michael and Christian have such a strong connection with each other, it was so easy to see during the ceremony. And with the kids as well. Both children had the guests in tears during their heartfelt, open, honest speeches that they gave during toasts.

The wedding ceremony and reception took place at Cast Iron Studios in downtown Bellevue. Portraits were done beforehand at Bellevue Downtown Park just around the corner.

West Seattle High School senior Aspen was such a delight to photograph. Big smiles, super easy-going personality, the camera loved her. We started out our photography session on the train tracks at Depot Park on Front Street in downtown Issaquah, and then made our way around town for some different backdrops. Aspen did a great job incorporating her love of volleyball into the photos as well as making friends with some horses that wanted to share the spotlight.

‘Tis the season for baby girls! A few weeks back I had the opportunity to photograph another newborn babygirl, Dottie, and the rest of her family at their Magnolia home. She was the sweetest baby. She had so many smiles for mom and dad, and already had patience with her older brother who wanted nothing to do with holding still to have his photo taken.

There are so many wonderful things to say about this couple, but if I had to choose one word to describe them it would simply be ‘happy’. It’s easy to see how truly happy Kalla and Chris are with life, and most importantly with the person they have chosen to spend the rest of their lives with. Each other. They are SO happy with each other. It makes me happy just thinking about how happy they are with each other.

Their music-themed WithinSodo wedding was perfection. A rooftop cocktail hour with views of downtown Seattle, the amazing food truck Curb Jumper Street Eats serving bomb sliders and fries, and the biggest/longest dance party I have ever been a part of at a wedding. Afton Vander Pol of The Invisible Hostess kicked butt and ran a smooth show the entire day. The weather was great and there was even some nice color in the sky during sunset and we were able to sneak a quick bride & groom photo on the roof just as the sky turned purple. 

All in all, this was such a wonderful wedding to be a part of. Thank you Kalla and Chris for inviting me to document your celebration.

Newborns are so fascinating to photograph. They are always looking around and absorbing information about this big, new world. I love how they latch onto their parents faces and just stare with such interest and wonder. Emma was no different. Her big blue eyes were captivating to watch and follow in my lens as they moved around trying to focus on different things and figure out what was going on during her newborn photography session. She is a very loved little girl, it was written all across her parents faces when they held her, smiled at her and talked to her.
