Carla and Kevin chose to take their engagement photos among the greenhouses, gardens, and schoolhouse of Christianson's Nursery in Mount Vernon. Christianson's Nursery is one of my favorite places to be, and it doubles as a small wedding venue! Vinny and I got married behind the schoolhouse a couple years ago, surrounded by hydrangeas, rose gardens, and our closest family and friends. It photographs beautifully, and I highly recommend it if you're planning a small celebration or portrait session!
Remember Jimmy and Madison's Puyallup wedding and Larrabee State Park engagement session? These two have become friends of mine over the years of photographing their special moments, and I am seriously so excited to watch them grow old together. If you know these two, then you also know they treat each other with so much love, respect and appreciation it's ridiculous. Everyone deserves to find someone who loves them the way Jimmy and Madison love each other. They also treat each photo session like a date--because it really should be--and they make a full day of it. They drove all the way up to Bellingham for the weekend, spent the morning with Elizabeth Marie Makeup and Crowns of Gold styling, enjoyed a one year anniversary session around Deception Pass State Park, and took each other out to dinner. Now THAT is how you celebrate an anniversary. Looking forward to many more photos with these two! Here are just a handful of my favorites...
Maria and Jarod wanted a bright and colorful engagement session, and Tulip Town was the perfect place for it! We arrived just as they opened on a Friday morning and enjoyed the tail-end of tulip season. Here are some of my favorites!
Teresa and Jake have been so fun to work with, from start to finish! I feel so lucky that they chose me to capture their wedding day, full of love, color, hugs, and happy tears. Witnessing their first look and seeing the joy of their family members hugging at the end of the day were by far my favorite parts of the wedding, and I am so excited to share them! If you'd like to order prints from their special day, please visit their full online gallery, too.
