.peter + mollie. {tacoma, washington | pioneer park pavilion wedding photographer}

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!!!!

I met Jade at the pilates studio here in Redding!!! I was thrilled when she asked me to capture her family… although had her confused with someone else…

so when directing wardrobe, I was slightly off, lol! I had her dressing everyone in Matilda Jane!!! (giggle) !!

Thank you all for the GREAT shoot!!!! Your family is absolutely stunning!!!!!!!

.you are amazing. {Redding, CA Photographer}

Several years ago I was shopping abound in Macy’s & was approached by the loveliest lady. She asked if I was Heather Armstrong & then told me it was one of her daughter’s dream to go on a photo shoot with me, as she wanted to be  a photographer! I was thrilled & so for her daughter’s birthday, she surprised her to come on a shoot with me! It was a blast!

I was so excited to receive an e-mail that they would like a mother-daughter shoot!!!! AHH! Such a special friendship they have!!

Be sure to check out Holly’s photography! She is amazing!

.a Christmas gift. {Redding, CA Photographer}

.ed + claire.

Tears filled my eyes as I asked Ed why he had been the one to set up the shoot!! Not that I minded a man setting up a shoot, but typically it is the lady, yah know….

 Ed said to me, “Well, a shoot with you was Claire’s Christmas present!” “I gave her the slip that confirmed the shoot & made her dream come true!”

Claire said that she was crying & the children were asking why & she told them & they were so excited!!! Yes, I was crying!

Ed & Claire were visiting Redding from Salisbury, England, for a Love After Marriage Workshop! It was a treat to capture their love & their connection!

Next time a family shoot!!!!
