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 session was recently featured on PNWeddings, and I am so excited to finally be able to share the images! Last year I photographed a beautiful wedding for two of my clients and their three-month-old son. Looking back on it now, it would have been so fun to do a bridal session before the wedding, and better yet, include her son in the photos. So when one of my very best friends and her son stumbled upon a wedding dress in her size at Ragfinery for only $10, we knew we had to do something with it! I held Kai in my arms when he was only six days old, and Alannya has rocked as a mom from day one. Seeing their connection grow over the past two years has brought me so much joy. We set up a styled bridal shoot with Hair by Leah, Tracy Li Makeup, and Foothills Flowers and watched this idea come to life!
This was my first styled shoot, and it was the perfect way to launch into busy season! Kestrel, Andrea, and I collaborated about the locations, details, and vendors, and I'm really happy with how our vision came to life. We couldn't have done it without the following Bellingham vendors who donated their time and talents. Thank you!
Kestrel, Andrea, and I put our ideas together for two Bellingham styled shoots, and I'm so happy with how they turned out! If you haven't heard of the following vendors, I really recommend checking out more of their work and hiring them for your next event!
