Gracie and Ben got married in June at my favorite wedding venue, Christianson's Nursery! Their color palette fit perfectly alongside the garden's white and pink blooms, and we ended the evening with a golden sunset. They handmade flower pots for all their guests, and their sweet pup Larrie joined throughout the entire celebration. It was a beautiful day, and I'm so excited to finally share some of my favorites!
Claire and Conner chose a two-location engagement session at two of their favorite parks in Bellingham, Boulevard and Whatcom Falls! We started along the boardwalk where Conner proposed, took a stroll through Fairhaven, and then drove across town. It was a foggy morning in early October, and the fall leaves added such a fun pop of color against the bay!

The Farm at Van Wyck was the perfect Bellingham venue for Kate and Stephen's wedding! They wanted a rustic outdoor space to celebrate with a couple hundred of their favorite people, and the entire day was such a joy to be a part of. They chose bright summery florals and included personalized elements throughout the day like stickers, pint glasses, and an entire wall of photos. One of the pieces Kate and Stephen looked forward to most was the dance floor, and DJ Scoob once again got everyone on their feet! Sit back and scroll through my favorites from this August wedding...
Patrick booked proposal photography as a surprise for Claire on their vacation to the Pacific Northwest! It was their first time to the San Juan Islands and a beautiful location to capture this special moment in their lives together. He and I created a plan together in advance, and it all went so well. She said yes, and I had so much fun witnessing their joy! We continued with the rest of their portraits, giving them plenty of time to chat and laugh as we walked to each spot. I'm beyond excited to finally share some of my favorites here with you all!
On a beautiful Spring evening, some of my top favorite Bellingham and Mount Vernon wedding vendors came together to create a joyful yellow styled shoot! And while it may have been just for fun, Kalia and Slater were just a month away from getting married for real. We could all feel their love and excitement as they exchanged rings and I-do's, and I hope you can see it in these photos, too! Saltbox Barn is a gorgeous venue in Mount Vernon, WA with multiple getting ready areas, a 1940s barn, and wide open views of Skagit County farmlands.

This Spring couple session included pops of yellow and one of my all-time favorite places! It's a little bit of a drive from the Bellingham area, but it's absolutely worth it. I love the combination of the beaches and steep green cliffs, and the way Eva's joyful outfits popped against it all!
Kate and Stephen chose a two-location session along Bellingham Bay for their engagement photos! Beginning shortly after sunrise on a Spring morning, we captured the beauty of the trees and water along Chuckanut Drive and their passion for biking at the pump tracks. This was such a fun way to celebrate their love for each other and the outdoors, and I'm so excited to photograph their wedding!
Lyndsey and Robert married at Bellingham's Lairmont Manor on a beautiful day in April! We started their day with getting ready photos on-site, a first look full of happy tears, and wedding party portraits throughout the property. They shared a ceremony in front of the fountain with about 50 of their closest family and friends, followed by an indoor reception. After many years of photographing weddings at Lairmont Manor, it was my first time seeing the downstairs Billiards Room used for dancing! The dark room and low white ceilings were a perfect recipe for great dancing photos. Scroll through to see my favorites from their day!
After a decade of love, Hannah and Ash finally eloped along the Washington Coast! We made the five hour drive from the Bellingham area the day before and did a walkthrough together to visualize our plans. On the morning of their wedding, we started with a sunrise ceremony and quiet vows, followed by a first dance and portraits along the beach. It was just the two of them, their officiant, myself, and my second witness, and it was beautiful. These two have been engaged as long as I can remember, and witnessing their happy tears and laughter has my heart absolutely full of joy. Scroll through to view my favorites!
