It was a beautiful winter day for Chi and Saurav engagement session. The light was filtered through the trees and everything had so much color. Saurav is so funny and had us laughing for so much of the session.
We chatted about their upcoming wedding in India and the planning of their home reception to share with family and friends when they returned.
Melba and Melissa had the most beautiful church wedding at Wayside United Church of Christ the uniqueness and openness are what made the day so much more special. The ceremony sign said Hope, Love, and Faith which I think in the world we could always use more of. We were so honored, Melba and Melissa choose us as the wedding photographers for their wedding, we had met them a few years before when we photographed Melissa’s cousin’s wedding and Melba and Melissa were both in the wedding party. So we knew we were in for a treat of such a wedding day.

Gina and Will love the outdoors so when they picked a venue it needed to be close to a river, have a lot of surrounding trees and allow them to throw a party dancing around the fire. Gina had some of the most beautiful details for her their wedding day with all the colors and natural aspect of their venue they decided to keep the flowers simple with white flowers and greenery.
Spending time with Claire and Jeff is never dull, the days are always full of laughs and jokes. When you meet them you can see they are best friends and every aspect of their lives is an adventure. And may of their adventures has brought them to Lake Wenatchee in the Plaines area.
Side note this was Claire’s exit dress and the band she wore in her hair on their wedding date at Pine River Ranch last July.
Alondra and Dom showed us some of their favorite spots along their walking trail. We all had so much fun laughing and enjoying the simple calm of the beautiful nature along the trail. We finished our session along the beach with a perfect made driftwood shelter and the cool salty air that came crashing in from the waves.
We chatted more about ideas and details for wedding inspiration and things they are excited about and things that they might be concerned about.
Engagement sessions are some of our favorites, we get a better opportunity to see their relationship and personality and see what works with photo posing style for wedding.
There is so much I can say about Claire and Jeff’s wedding, one thing that sticks out from the moment I meet them both is they are two of the sweetest selfless people we have ever meet. Claire had so many little touches that made their day memorable not only for them but also for all of their guests. They had scavenger hunts and games, drinks and a dance party that never stopped.
Claire was a bride you couldn’t stop smiling around she was always smiles and making sure that everyone was having fun that you never wanted the day to end. Jeff was the perfect complement everything was an adventure and I caught him so many times watching as Claire mingled and danced smiling and laughing into the late evening.
