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!
Gerald and I planned a surprise proposal and engagement session at Boulevard Park. He and Hannah were visiting Bellingham for the week, and he wanted the special moments captured on camera for her. After he proposed, I introduced myself and we took a walk through the boardwalk and Fairhaven. It was a beautiful memory, and I'm so glad I got to be a part of it!
I've been photographing Madison and Jimmy since 2016! They both value documenting their lives through photos, and I've had the joy of photographing their engagement, wedding, one-year wedding anniversary, and a snowy couple session up on Mount Baker. Two of my longest clients and biggest supporters, it's been such a gift to get to know them over the years. This time around, they wanted a Bellingham sunset session in the flower fields. We captured these on a smoky August evening, and I love all the bright, golden colors in these images. Scroll to see my top favorites from their session!
One year after their fall micro wedding, Megan and Joey booked a Bellingham Airbnb and an anniversary photography session to celebrate! We used the beach outside their rental, included their dogs Newton and Gordon for portraits, and then let them run and play in the water. They made such a fun trip out of it, including stopping by the bakery that made their wedding cake, and I love knowing that these photos will remind them of all it.
Mia and Berkly shared a colorful July wedding at Lairmont Manor, decorated with bright summer florals from Pozie by Natalie. After a sunny ceremony on the lawn, they celebrated with a family style meal. I don't see this serving style often, and it was a beautiful way to bring their loved ones together! Scroll to see my favorites from their wedding day, and then take a look at their Bellingham engagement session and guestbook.
Rebecca and Thomas married on a Tuesday afternoon in September at Lairmont Manor. Their bright yellow flowers added a beautiful pop of color to the rainy day! We stayed dry with a first look under the greenery, portraits using my clear umbrella and the covered walkways, an indoor ceremony, and a dinner under Lairmont's tent on the front patio. It was a joy to work with these two again, and you can view their Bellingham engagement session here.
Claire and Matt shared a "we still do" ceremony and reception at Hotel Bellwether after eloping in 2020. This venue overlooks the bay, perfect for showing off the Bellingham scenery for their loved ones. Despite a forecast of thunderstorms, it was a bright, sunny September day--and a beautiful way to end my summer wedding season!
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!
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!
My name is Caylie and I'm a Bellingham and Mount Vernon, WA wedding and engagement photographer. I love what I do!
