And their two dogs were some of the cutest I've had the pleasure to have along for a shoot! We did our photos down in the adorable historic town of Port Gamble, Washington - complete with white picket fences, old buildings, blooming gardens and plenty of color. Take a peek!

Courtney & Madelyn // Thornewood Castle Wedding // Lakewood, WA Courtney and Madelyn came to me last year excited to plan their engagement photos and their wedding. They had fantastic ideas and together we created one of the most unique engagement sessions I've ever had the pleasure to do, between a retro 50's diner and some 80's inspired goofy photos that were far from your "classic" engagement shots - which made it that much more fun. The chemistry these two have is remarkable. Their wedding day was no different. I think that my favorite part was when I took photos of them separate, we got great shots - but when they were brought back together, neither could stop smiling and laughing. A truly beautiful and fun wedding! Congrats!

Nina & Jordan // Sweet Backyard Wedding // Kitsap Wedding Photographer Nina reached out to me about photographing her wedding last year, and I was nothing short of excited! She and Jordan had a chemistry that made engagement photos an absolute joy, & the wedding day was nothing short of the same sweet simplicity. It was an extremely fun wedding with little details that told their story from their love for tennis to the hard work they'd put into their property. Congrats Nina & Jordan - I had such a great time at your wedding!

Their wedding was beyond beautiful and one of the most fun I've had the pleasure of photographing, I almost wanted to stay and join the party!

Jennifer and David // Alderbrook Resort and Spa Wedding // Union, WA Jennifer and David's beautiful wedding took place at Alderbrook Resort and Spa, an amazing venue on the waterfront in Union, WA just past Belfair. Their ceremony was outdoors looking over the water out at the mountains, and the reception followed in the ballroom. Everything about this entire wedding was unique and full of love. Culture was poured into the events with a tea ceremony and money dance, the groom's father officiated the ceremony, and you could just tell everybody was so close. The dance floor was full and one of the most fun to photograph this far! Congratulations you two and thank you so much for trusting me with documenting your day.

Roxana and Chris // Cedar Springs, Port Orchard Wedding Roxana and Chris are high school sweethearts & it was an absolute joy being able to witness and document their big day! This is the second time now that I have photographed at Cedar Springs in Port Orchard, and it's such a beautiful PNW venue - a woodland wonderland! The ceremony space is reached by bridges across the pond to a little island area, and there's lots of unique spaces from the beautiful tent with chandeliers to the fire pit & giant swing to the gazebo for dancing. Their team really pulled together to make a great wedding day!

Courtney & Madelyn // Port Townsend Engagement Shoot Courtney & Madelyn came to me about an engagement shoot a short while back, and together we created one of the most fun engagement sessions I've ever done! Keep scrolling - because the second half of the shoot features Madelyn's idea & outfit preperation, and you've got to see it :)

We laughed a lot and had a ton of fun with these. But at their wedding consultation, Madelyn brought up a few ideas she had for an 80's so-awkward-it's-funny theme, with some inspiration from a recent movie called Masterminds - as we were shooting the first set of photos I still wasn't 100% certain what was in store, but as Courtney & Madelyn came back out in their outfits I knew it was going to be one of my favorite shoots I'd ever get to do. Just keep scrolling.....
