Nicole and Josh married at Jardin Del Sol on a warm September afternoon. I got to know them at their winter engagement session, Zoom meetings, and text updates about dress shopping, venue tours, and more. I love connecting with my clients like this and feel really grateful I got to work with them (big thanks to Nicole's coworker and my client Rebecca!). This wedding was a day full of laughter, family, friendship, greenery, and gorgeous florals from Flori Flowers. Scroll through to see my favorites!
Erinn and Tony celebrated with a backyard wedding in Snohomish County. It was a beautiful overcast August afternoon, and they picked up a bouquet of dahlias from a nearby market. I arrived as they finished up a wedding-day lunch of ramen and pizza, and Erinn's friends popped a bottle of sparkling cider. Their first look was one of my all-time favorites, and moments like these are why I keep spare tissue packets on hand! Erinn, Tony, my second photographer and I hopped in the car for a short drive to Lake Stevens to finish their portraits with a view. Back at the house, both their ceremony and reception were full of laughter, joy, and so many candid moments of loved ones happy to be together. This was such a fun wedding to photograph!
After sharing a small ceremony at Christianson's Nursery in 2020, Lacey and Elliott finally brought their families and friends together for part two! Their wedding at the Lady Florence was everything they had originally planned: getting ready photos, portraits, a beautiful ceremony, reception, and a night of dancing. If you love candids as much as I do, this wedding was full of them! I have so many favorite moments from their day and feel so excited to share them with you all. Scroll through to see a first look just as joyful as last year's, groomsmen dancing down the aisle, the cutest flower girl I've ever photographed, everyone's laughter at the end of the ceremony as the rain began to downpour, and magical twinkle-lit photos in the greenhouse.
Lily and Sam chose to celebrate their engagement with portraits at Mukilteo Lighthouse Beach Park near Everett. It's a special place to them and one of my favorite beaches for photos. I met Lily as Human Services students at Western and took her senior portraits several years ago. It was a joy to have her back in front of the camera again. They embraced the laughter and silliness, and I'm so glad I got to be a part of it!
My name is Caylie and I'm a Bellingham and Mount Vernon, WA wedding and engagement photographer. I love what I do!
