Valerie & Tara booked me for their wedding years ago, and I've been looking forward to this ever since their engagement session! They chose to get married at Lairmont Manor on a fall afternoon, serving a spread of appetizers and desserts to their family and friends. They incorporated red elements throughout their celebration to honor Chinese traditions, such as the custom sash on Tara's dress. These two are clearly so happy together, and it was an absolute joy to be a part of 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!
We celebrated Boo & Ky's engagement with a walk through two of their favorite spots in Bellingham, Fairhaven and Boulevard Park! I loved the special details they included and the variety of their outfits. They thoughtfully incorporated pieces from family, a handmade paper bouquet, a favorite comic book, and colors that they plan to include in their wedding. Scroll to see my favorites!
Violet and Tara arrived to their engagement session ready to laugh and have FUN! We spent the morning wandering through Christianson's Nursery, my favorite venue in Mount Vernon, WA. They let their personalities and silliness shine, and I had the best time getting to know them. I feel so lucky they chose me to be their photographer, and I cannot wait to be a part of their upcoming Bellingham wedding!
Hannah and Ashley were so fun to work with! We laughed a bunch, shared a few happy tears, and enjoyed a gorgeous Bellingham sunset from Marine Park and the Community Boating Center. I hope you all can feel the love in these!
My name is Caylie and I'm a Bellingham and Mount Vernon, WA wedding and engagement photographer. I love what I do!
