I don’t think there was a dry eye all day at this one. Happiness and love was oozing out of everyone and you can feel it throughout these images. I don’t know if I’ve ever cried at a first look before this one, I am usually so full of adrenaline that tears never flow even though I always am filled with love, but this one really got me!

Lara and Heather have been incredible from day one when they invited me over to their home for our client meeting and baked me banana bread. The way to my heart is always through my stomach, so well played ladies! We’ve just had a great friendship since, from a late night dinner after their engagement session to helping them craft stuff for the wedding a few weeks prior.

This is what makes what I do more than just being a vendor. I really want to establish a unique relationship with each client that comes my way, and usually we all end up good friends at the end. I was on cloud nine all day with them, from the 2 hours of portrait time they gave me to the dance party that was so good I got out there and busted a few “moves” without my camera. Thanks for letting me be part of your day, Lara and Heather. You two are beautiful inside and out!

Finally got to photograph at a place I’ve been dreaming to shoot at since my friend Lindsey and I stayed there a few years ago. A BIG thanks to Stephanie for coming along with me on this one. Jerica’s flower crown was the perfect addition to her beautiful Sarah Seven dress and the day was surrounded by the breathtaking landscape of Whidbey Island. Here’s a little sneak of Jerica & Tyler’s day (Aiden’s too!):

I think this first image pretty much sums up the outpouring love Caitlin & Mikey have for one another and the personal touches they put into their day. Hundreds of cloth flags that were hand sewn by the couple and their friends/family were scattered throughout the venue. I thought it was such a simple but beautiful touch that added a little extra magic to the stunning landscape of Wandering Waters Farm.

No one could stop smiling all day. I loved how they had their guests in a circle around them during the ceremony and had everyone join around them to send up good thoughts and cheers to the newlyweds. The 5 person string band played music that led the guests to the reception spot where there was dancing until the sun went down and beyond. I left in a happy daze after the wedding, and I think you’ll see why.
