I remember Haeley and Jason’s engagement session, we had a short window to work with with them both being students at WSU.
It was overcast and rained off and on and was pretty cold, that never stopped Jason and Haeley from smiling and just living in the moment. We talked about the plans for their wedding, and how excited they both are to share the day will all there loved ones.

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.
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.
We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness – and call it love – true love.
We got luck with a beautiful day at Scenic Beach State Park documeting Paige and Will's engagement photo. I feel in love with the rich color of the trees and the light beeze that moved along the beach. We loved the idea of keeping with the simple theme of small and simple for their Intimate Port Gamble Pavilion wedding in July.

As we headed in to the second day the mood was light and calm and laid back. We found a little spot away from all the crowds to keep it intimate and special to just them Megan’s dress was a low backed Mermaid with a fun flirty bottom. As Megan headed up the stairs to where Mo was waiting with is back turned she placed her had on his shoulder as he turned around his eyes lit up with happiness to see his beautiful bride.

Making our own Tribe at The Lookout Lodge with Heidi and Carmen
We got lucky for their engagement session we had a lot of rain that week so we were all worried that we might get rained out. But as driving out to The Lookout Lodge the sun was perfectly sitting shinning in all its glory.
When planning a wedding we start building our tribe. We start putting together the people who bring us up and support us. Carmen and Heidi are doing exactly that building their tribe, When these two first meet in Kansas they became very fast Friends and who knew that nearly 2 years later they would be planning their wedding. With the blending of two diverse backgrounds it was so great to incorporate both flags that showed the background they both were bringing to this blended relationship.
Engaged- Deception Pass Park – with Sarah and Erik
It takes a special type of couple to Do their engagement photo’s in the rain, to just be pure and vulnerable. Sarah and Eric they have that pureness that love outside the lines, as we started their session we had some moments the rain held off. We walk down to the beach stopping and getting some pictures on the way down and exploring the beauty of not just the joy of the beginning of their lives as they come together also the views that we have all around us in Washington.
Down on the beach we got a few moments before it started to pour most of the time couples will get upset and we try to hold out in hopes it might stop after a few, But to our surprise the most beautiful thing happen as the sky’s gave us everything it had. Sarah and Erik kissed and embraced and the pureness and the rawness showed through, what could have been a horrible engagement session turned into one of the best of Fall in the Pacific Northwest.

Sucking her thumb,
Wetting her pants,
Doing the hula, hula dance!
