Wow, I have had so much fun this past year watching Emma grow and taking her pictures every 3 months! (Check out her 6 months, 3 months and newborn photos here). She changes and grows so much every time I see her. This time she acquired a few front teeth and a great big toothy grin! Oh, and an obsession with her shoes :-)

It’s really hard to accurately describe how wonderful it is to photograph a couple that are simply SO NICE that it blows you away. Geneva and Kellen are that couple. I met them last year, spent time with them during their engagement shoot last summer, and then documented their day on February 27th as they said their marriage vows and officially sealed the deal in downtown Everett at the Monte Cristo Ballroom. They are an absolute delight to be around and so loving toward one another.

A few note-worthy things about Geneva and Kellen’s wedding day. 1) Geneva had the best (and sparkly-ist!) shoes. Ever. 2) Their friends and family may possibly hold the record for most number of speeches during the toasts portion of the evening. And 3) this couple is so LOVED by everyone in their lives. Tears were flowing on more than one occasion throughout the evening.

A lighthouse on a uninhabited island? Check. A private, chartered boat from Orcas Island? Check. A super fun, intelligent, loving couple? Check. My Patos Island engagement session with Alena and Dan definitely takes the cake for coolest engagement session location to date. The day was quite long but obviously worth it (I mean, look at these photos!) It started with an early morning drive to Anacortes and a ferry trip out to Orcas Island. We then stopped to refuel (on coffee and sandwiches, what else?) before heading to the north side of the island to hop on the chartered boat which would take us out to Patos Island State Park.

I photographed the lighthouse & the couple from three different perspectives during the shoot. From the boat on our initial trip in to the island, standing on the island itself, and then from the boat again afterwards while Alena and Dan remained on the island. Doing this really helped to create a better, more well-rounded set of pictures within the same available setting. And Alena and Dan of course were wonderful to work with. Their positive energy and constant smiles make the entire experience even more enjoyable. They are getting married in September on Friday Harbor and it is going to be a blast to photograph.

Jennie and Greg are dear friends of mine and I am thrilled to share these photographs from their winter wedding in sunny Phoenix, Arizona at the Secret Garden. My fiancé was a part of the wedding party and we were both so happy to be asked to play such important roles in our friends’ celebration. I photographed the first part of the day, including prep, the ceremony and portraits, and was then given the order to put down the camera and pick up a drink and join in the fun.

Jennie and Greg, you both looked beautiful, especially with those crazy big smiles you had for each other all day. It’s easy to see how much love you have for each other, even after 10 years of togetherness. And now you are husband and wife! Congrats again, love you both!

I love meeting families as wonderful as the Liu family! They are such lovely, nice people and were an absolute delight to spend the afternoon with. The day of our family photography session out at Discovery Park in Magnolia was one of those gorgeous warm(ish) February days that felt more like spring than winter, which made the walk down to the beach, and the evening’s sunset, even more delightful.
