Mikaela and Grant married at the Seattle Washington Temple on a sunny May afternoon. We began their photography with a celebratory exit from the temple and finished with family and couple portraits. I love that this location has so many beautiful spaces for loved ones to gather together for photos just steps away from the parking lot!
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!
Erika and Hunter celebrated their Fall wedding with a small ceremony and reception at Semiahmoo Resort. It was a cold afternoon, but we got to enjoy beautiful golden sunshine all day long. I loved the yellow buildings, expansive ocean views, their their cozy fireplace ceremony!
Their officiant, Shannon (Tall Red Head Girl), is one of my all time favorite vendors and officiated our own wedding several years ago! If you're looking for a funny and experienced officiant who will create a joyful ceremony customized to your story, I highly recommend Shannon.
Maddie & Stefan chose to get married with a small backyard micro wedding. We included a first look, couple portraits, a ceremony looking out at Lake Whatcom, and portraits of the two of them with their families. It was a beautiful Spring morning, and after our time together their families enjoyed a celebratory brunch! Scroll through to view my favorites!
Mia & Berkly's engagement album will be twice special to look back on after their friends and family fill the pages with best wishes at their wedding! We took these photos to celebrate their choice to get married, and it's only fitting that these images be printed with the dual purpose of a guestbook at their wedding. If you've been looking for a practical excuse to order an album of your engagement photos, this is it! Pictured here is a sage linen cover and the new 8x8 size, available for portrait sessions and duplicate albums. View more album details, samples, and videos here!
Mia and Berkly celebrated their engagement with a two-location session at some of their favorite places in Bellingham. Pictured here is part one at Elizabeth Park. It was a rare sunny February afternoon, and I loved the golden light glowing through the trees. Can't wait to create a guestbook album with these images!
Nicole and Josh arrived to their engagement session ready to embrace an hour full of laughter and candid moments! Their ability to focus on each other, have fun, and not take the day too seriously led to genuinely joyful, happy images. Teddy Bear Cove was the perfect location choice for showing off the beauty of Bellingham, and I can't wait to photograph these two again at their wedding!
Lacey and Elliott got married at Christianson's Nursery on a sunny August afternoon. New safety precautions impacted their original wedding plans, but they couldn't imagine not getting married. Christianson's served as the perfect setting for their intimate ceremony. Between the blooming gardens, twinkle lights, and the floral décor, this Mount Vernon micro wedding looked anything but last-minute. We're looking forward to joining them again for their larger wedding celebration!
Milad proposed to Javaneh while on their first vacation together to Seattle. While she had a feeling the question was coming, she couldn't have looked happier to say yes! Here we are three years later, and Milad asked me to design a custom album as a special surprise. Pictured here is their 10x10" album with a metallic silver linen cover.
After multiple changes in wedding dates and plans due to COVID restrictions, Jacelyn and Matt embraced a sweet, easy-going micro wedding at Lairmont Manor in Bellingham, and it was perfect. The gardens provided shade and glowing spots of sunshine throughout their ceremony, and their parents joined over Facetime for their first dance. This 10x10 album features our emerald velvet cover with debossed text. Albums include 20 thick layflat pages (10 spreads) with a hard cover in a linen or velvet color of your choice, and you can view more of our albums here.
My name is Caylie and I'm a Bellingham and Mount Vernon, WA wedding and engagement photographer. I love what I do!
