The Gjerdrum boys are definitely going to have all of the girlies running after them in a few years. I mean, how adorable are these kids? Their laughs and smiles were contagious. Mom and Dad were pretty great themselves as well.

The Gjerdrum’s invited me over to their home in Northeast Seattle for a family photography session in November. The family of five (plus the family dog!) were a delight to photograph. The boys took direction very well and seemed to actually enjoy each other at moments :-) The yard was beautiful and provided me with a lot of options for a diverse set of photographs. Photographing a group like this makes me eager to have a clan of my own.

Thanks Gjerdrum family! Keep on smiling and keep on spreading the cheer. Happy Holidays!

I could not stop smiling as I was editing the photos from Emma and Jacob’s autumn engagement session. They are SO stinkin’ cute together, and not to mention, extremely fun to be around. It’s so wonderful when, as a photographer, you can walk into an engagement photography session and immediately feel completely at ease with your clients. That’s how it was with Emma and Jacob. Also, I was beyond thrilled that they wanted to do their photo shoot at the Rainbow Run miniature golf course in Redmond. I always talk with my wedding couples who want to do an engagement session, and try and get them to choose an activity or location that reflects their personality and interests and also represents who they are as a couple. After I learned that Emma and Jacob loved to mini golf together I was completely sold. And this golf course is actually really cool! I want to go back and actually go mini golfing!

Afterwards we headed over to the University of Washington’s Bothell Campus, where Emma and Jacob originally met. The laughter and smiles kept on coming as they continued to be the perfect together and I continued to photograph their ‘perfectness’. (Emma and Jacob, you make my job SO easy!). I absolutely cannot wait to document their wedding day in August, I know it is going to be filled with contagious happiness and that it is going to be an absolute blast.

(A side note. Yup, Jacob is wearing a ring already :-) If Emma has one, why can’t he?)

What a great day this was. After months of hard work renovating, building benches and lying stone walkways, Andrea and Joe got married on September 6th at Andrea’s parent’s cabin in the woods of Suncadia in Cle Elum, Washington. Guests were driven to and from the ceremony site in an open-top truck bed because the road up to the cabins was too primitive for some of the vehicles to pass safely. The view from the ceremony site, where Andrea and Joe said their vows, was breathtaking. Open blue sky so big it looked like it could have swallowed up the Cle Elum River Valley below. Guests were seated on handmade wooden benches, with an assortment of old couch pillows for comfort. Andrea was gorgeous, with a head of perfect curls and a beautiful lace trimmed veil, and you could just see the happiness spilling out of her and her groom Joe the entire day.

After the ceremony, all of the guests were transported back to their cars and everyone drove into town to StoneHouse 101, a lovely events venue in downtown Roslyn. The venue was beautiful, perfect for a wedding reception on a hot summer evening. The building was made of stone and wood and had a great outdoor lawn area with overhanging terraces covered in vining plants and flowers. The tables were set with antique china plate-ware, while pine boughs were placed neatly inside folded napkins left on top. Succulents and flower arrangements sat on top of round slices of wood in the center. The setup was splendid, too perfect almost to touch.

The rest of the night was filled with toasts, dinner, dancing and drinking. Exactly as it should be. Dinner was provided by Rustic Root, a local, sustainable catering company in Roslyn. Pies of every sort were served for dessert and the beer flowed out of a self-serve wooden barrel station where guests were faced with the difficult decision of deciding between twelve different brews on tap. The kids in attendance spent most of the night dancing hard to Kelly Thibodeaux and Etouffee, a ‘Swamp Rock’ band from Louisiana. The band played an awesome set and had everyone up jumping around and joining in the fun.

It was easy to see that Andrea and Joe are truly loved and cherished by their family and friends. Everyone had to travel some distance, whether small or great, to get here on this day, and the bride and groom were so appreciative of everyone that came to help them celebrate the start of their marriage. Congrats newlyweds!

Erika and Dan married on a rainy Saturday in August at Woodland Meadow Farms in Snohomish, just north of Seattle, Washington. I can’t say enough about how lovely these two are together. Individually they are brilliant, smart (a doctor and an engineer), kind people, but together they are actually somehow so much more. It is plain to see that they feel extremely grateful to have found each other, and know how lucky they are.

Their wedding was gorgeous. Woodland Meadow Farms is an extraordinary venue complete with stunning views of open fields, wildflowers and the occasional stellar sunset (which we did get that evening). Kelli at Botanique created bouquets, centerpieces and ceremony arrangements that worked absolutely perfect with the venue look-and-feel as well as with the antique-inspired china tableware.

Tarps were put up over the ceremony site to keep guests dry, although after Erika and Dan said their vows, had their first kiss, and walked hand-in-hand down the aisle as husband and wife, the sun decided to come out which cleared the way for the beautiful sunset I mentioned earlier.

Congrats Erika and Dan! I am excited to see what the future holds for you two.

Another cute dog on the blog today! I headed out with the Andersons and their dog Otis for a quick family photo session at Licton Springs Park near Greenlake in Seattle last month. Otis was adorable and posed very obediently for his photos. Dogs really are a part of the family (they rule the roost in my household) and definitely should be included in the family photographs, especially when they are being used for holiday cards! They really hate being left out of important things like that.
