peter + mollie

Peter & Mollie! AHH! You’re married! I am so so happy for you two!!!!!

Capturing your day was truly the BEST!!!! Ben & I had a blast!!!!! So incredible that it was sunny & beautiful!

A little windy, but ah!, it made your veil blow perfectly!

Shooting downtown Tacoma, was nothing short of phenomenal!!!! Couldn’t ask for a better place to take pics!!!

Peter & Mollie decided to do a first glance. It was Ben’s favorite moment of the day!!!!! Yes, we always go through the wedding day,

& Ben mentioned that the First Glance was his favorite!!!!!! The Tacoma Convention Center made for a great place to take pics!

We met the Bridal Party down at Tacoma Union Station and had a great time shooting in that area!

The Ceremony & Reception was held at Pioneer Park Pavillion !

Thank you both for the honor of capturing your beautiful day!!!!

.happy birthday abi. {northern california photographer}

.thirty! flirty! & thriving!.

Ahh! So Justin gave me a call to see if I would do a quick photo shoot before he brought Abi to the surprise”30th Thrift Store Birthday Party” he was throwing for her!

I know, right? What a fun theme!!!! Get glammed up in something from the Thrift Store!!!

It was a super fun shoot, however a little nerve wracking making sure all of the timing was on & what not…..

Everything came together perfectly… & Abi was surprised for her “30th” Birthday!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Birthday Abi!!!!!!! You are amazing & I know your 30’s are going to be incredible!!!!!!!!

.joey + jenna.

joey + jenna

a few weeks ago these two braved the early morning hour & brisk chill to model for the photography class that I was teaching at Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry!

It was a BLAST! I photographed their wedding, but we never ended up doing an engagement session, so it was kind of fun to do that!

THANK YOU both sooo much for modeling it up!!!!!!! You did amazing!!

.wes + julie | northwest forest conference center: houston, texas wedding.

wes + julie

When I met Wes & Julie over Skype I  was pinching myself because

I was actually being interviewed by potential wedding clients who lived in the Houston, TX area!!!

Never in a million years did I imagine technology would take me to Texas!! Thank you SKYPE & Pinterest!

Julie found one of my pictures through an e-mail link, I believe, of a fist glance moment, clicked on my site, & considered us to capture their day!

SUCH an honor! Truly! Truly! Truly!

Everything came together perfectly! They waited to see each other until Julie walked down the isle, always makes me tear up…..

We chased the light & captured amazing sunset photos!!! Such a lovely couple!

Thank you Wes & Julie!! Truly honored!!!!
