Haley & Kyle / Iceland Adventure Session

I have been dreaming of Iceland for 7 years! Who knew it would be my good friends Kyle & Haley who would allow me to photograph my dream photos, in my dream location, there for the first time?!

Along with their awesome personalities, we got some fun and playful photos of them enjoying the view and cold. Bec ...

Frenchie & Dan // Mesa, AZ Destination Engagement Session

Winter in Arizona is the best! So when someone asks you if you want to come all to Arizona for their engagement session. You would be crazy to say no!

They met in improve class so they both have such a wonderfully wicked sense of humor. But best of all, they are are ...

Alyssa & Matt // Ruby Beach Engagement Session

Goodbye Texas, Hello Ruby Beach! Alyssa & Matt are about as sweet as you can get. They made the trek all the way here from Houston. But since her mom works for the airlines they got here for basically free! Cool huh? Since they decided to do their session up here they were very open to my suggestion as to where to go. Unfortunately, at the time Hurricane Ridge was being covered in beautiful snow and the road was closed. So instead we decided ...

Nicholle & Sean // La Push Beach Elopement

La Push beach. You literally cannot go wrong with it. I love the beach. But La Push is different than say, Cannon Beach in OR. There are more sea stacks there, and on a sunny day the light plays with you as it goes behind the wall of rocks but then surprises you again as it shines through the holes that the ocean as slowly carved out for you. It's nature way of playing "peek-a-boo" with you.However, on Nicholle and Sean's day of their elopem ...

Andy & Leire // Lake Crescent Waterfall Engagement Session

Lake Crescent has a waterfall?? You would be surprised how many times I get that questions. But even before that you have to ask yourself. How far would you go to get the most amazing engagement photos? Would you get dirty? Maybe go for a hike? Ok, well how about crossing a freaking river to get to the most stunning waterfall in the area in the background? Because that is what my couples do and that is what Leire (pronounced Layray) and Andy did ...

Juwelene & Allan // Olympic National Park Engagement Session

Living in the Olympic National Park, has its perks! I don't know about you but I like to get dirty. But when I say that I mostly mean dirt roads that lead me to new locations I have never been before. Living in Port Angeles there are plenty of them in the area and I'm always taking my Subaru Outback to get a new layer of dirt on her. In case you don't know, Port Angeles is the gateway to the Olympic National Park You have to travel through it to ...

Sometimes you dream of doing something amazing that you think may never actually happen but you secretly hope that you're wrong. For me, photographing an elopement in Yosemite was a dream for me. I had been there 2 years earlier just to see it and I was smitten. I just wanted to shoot there so badly in those amazing mountains. With the view of El Capitan looming over you. Two years later I finally got my chance. I started to actually advertise fo ...

I love Zion National Park! I have always wanted to shoot in Zion National Park, and thanks to Ingrid and Jon, they made my dream come true! I took Ingrid's senior photos 4 years ago while on a trip to Montana. She lives in Bozeman with soon to be husband Jon and their two pugs. When she heard I was going to be in Zion she wanted to make the trek down from Montana for a session. Like holy crap, that's such a long drive for them to come to Zion ju ...

Ever been to Cave B Winery? I waited over a year for this wedding and I am over the moon excited to share their photos with everyone! We connected over our love of techno music and good mixed drinks.

The following is written by the bride: We met at a house party in Bellingham in 2010 when we were both ...
