Gosh, how gorgeous is Jess and these florals by @eventfulmomentsllc ! This past weekend was one of our last double headers of the year and both weddings made us giddy all day about what we do! When Jess told Steven and I that she couldn’t imagine her wedding day with any other photographer by her side, and that even though she’s a wedding planner, she was really able to enjoy being a BRIDE, I melted! Feeling valued and appreciated in yourself and your work really means so much doesn’t it? We ❤️ you Jess & Alex!
Honestly there are SO many parts of a wedding day that tug at our heart strings. But this? These are the things that really get me. Katie’s bridesmaids put a beautiful book together filled with letters from them and their families. They gave it to me during the early part of the day when I photograph details. I came upon this page and this was it. What an incredibly thoughtful gift that one day will become such a special heirloom for Katie and Brent. Katie really picked the most amazing bridesmaids. They were so kind and helpful. But this right here? The best!
This little love started Kindergarten last week and he is LOVING It! Maddux has the biggest heart and I’d be lying if I didn’t say watching the years fly by isn’t hard 😂😂. Side note. He lost his 2nd tooth the day before school started! Go Maddux!
I’m back! (Except not with the Canon gear in this photo, we moved over to the dark side!) But in all seriousness, raise your hand if you are feeling overwhelmed with the current season of life you’re in! I love posting stories because it feels real, it’s not perfect. I don’t spend endless time with captions, making sure the grid looks perfect. And then I waited so long to post over here because I’ve been really overthinking it! So I’m back! The last few months have been jam packed with incredible weddings and as many family adventures as we could fit into the schedule. We’re down to single digits of wedding dates left this year (yes!) and now it’s into hectic edits, culling, galleries, consults and email season. Plus school, sports, toddlerhood, pickups and drop offs. But in all of that, my goal is to be more present. For my kids, for my health. So let’s do this!
Happy 35th Steven! It’s crazy to think that we’ve been together since you were just barely old enough to buy a beer, and now we are thrilled to actually get carded 🤪 Thank you for showing us what love and fearless patience looks like! You’re the best and we love you so much! Happy birthday!
Six years old! Oh my gosh where has the time gone! Maddux you are kind, loving and so incredibly joyful. You made us parents and it has been an incredible adventure with you! I can hardly believe you’re about to start Kindergarten! This little birthday hat has been with him since his first birthday! Swipe to see :) We love you buddy!
Where it all began 12 years ago! (Swipe to see the rest!) Happy 12 years to the only person I want to do this crazy thing called life with! Steven you make our world go round and I love you to pieces! Thank you for 12 years of adventures, love and shenanigans. I feel incredibly lucky to have such a beautiful family with you and a business that makes every work day so much fun! Cheers to many many more! Also, Happy Anniversary to several of our couples who share the same anniversary! Including Kristina and Jay whose wedding were shooting today!
I’m such a sucker for a good #pikeplacemarket photo! But seriously, this day was jam packed with so much love, joy and FUN! And the most epic dance party with DJ Justin @ottomaticmm 👏🏻👏🏻One of my favorite things about Hillary was that she let me in and really shared with me about her wedding plans! Come the day of #willarywedding I felt SO a part of the day. We’re so lucky. We have the best couples. The most fun. The most trusting in us to rock their day!
