I think this gloomy Colorado day calls for some #fridayintroductions (even though those two things aren't related at all 😀) May as well tell all of my awesome inst-followers a bit about myself:
1. In case it wasn't obvious, those are my peeps up there ⬆️.
2. I have a daughter, Avery, and a son, Bryan. They are completely different!!! Avery is so cautious and caring and Bry... well, Bry likes to jump off things.
3. I played Basketball in college for Fresno State and then transferred and played for Colorado School of Mines. So this time of the year... is the BEST time of the year 🏀
4. My parents own and live on a Ranch and we are CONSTANTLY up there. It's calving and lambing season now... so we will be pretty much living up there (and will be for real some day soon) 🐮
5. I work full time as a Business Analyst for an O&G software company but my passion is my photography 📸
6. I love emojis 🤗
"Be humble, for you are made of the earth.
Be noble, for you are made of the stars." I'm working today on custom Earthen rings for the sweetest couple. Carefully preparing a blend of three sands from significant places in their life.
EARTHEN rings are beautiful reminders of where we've been, and often where we belong. They make beautifully intimate wedding and anniversary bands. #grounded
and how can I not.. #happynationalpuppyday to this cutie who brought me an entire roll of toilet paper today from the downstairs bathroom. he's obsessed with eating paper products of any kind so as mad I should have been his little excited and innocent face melted my heart. thank you for always making my day and providing me and @thenotorioustjb with endless laughs, @ridgeback_zeus 🐶❤️
I can't express how ready I am for summer! I'm especially excited for some new shoots and projects coming up that I cannot WAIT to share. We're taking massive florals, designer gowns, and epic locations. YAY! I'm also still in love with this shoot my hubby and I modeled for by the lovely @pineandsea_photo so here's another sneak peak! For the record it was freezing and I wasn't wearing shoes. Always worth it for a great adventure! ✌🏻✨💕
"Courage is required to make an initial thrust toward one’s coveted goal, but even greater courage is called for when one stumbles and must make a second effort to achieve....Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, ‘I will try again tomorrow." Thomas S. Monson
All I can think of looking at this is Mr Darcy and Pride and Prejudice. And I'm just gonna say, I so dislike the original Pride and Prejudice. Give me Kiera Knightley all day err day please!

These two lovebirds tied the knot earlier this month! Double tap to congratulate them, and check out their wedding day by clicking the link in my bio!
Officiant: @tamarajuju .
Today I hit my goal of bookings for the year + I am feeling so incredibly grateful. I am SO pumped about more elopements and intimate wedding, ALL my couples and their rad weddings. This industry is so hard sometimes + this being my second year it's hard not to feel like I should be shooting something new every weekend and traveling when in reality that's just not my lifestyle. I book a certain number of weddings each year to also be a great mom and wife to my sweet family at home. Their unwavering support means the world. So thank you to everyone who's believed and encouraged me along the way + especially thankful for God and all his blessings.
Also, @goodseedfloral this arch is the most incredible thing I've ever seen. Still amazed with it.
I've been thinking a lot of friendships lately. I met with a bride and her maid of honor the other week and I was just blown away with how close they were. Growing up I had a friend like that and I did EVERYTHING with. Life goes on, you grow up, get married... you get the idea. But oh how nice it is to see adults, two women, have become sisters. That is such a precious gift that not everyone has.
It's almost time!!! After months of hard work, visioning, late night discussions (i.e.: disagreements), and MANY bottles of wine.... our new website is SO CLOSE to being done. We're beyond excited to share it with you! We're so thankful to our brilliant designers @tonicsiteshop who authentically captured US. We'll be breaking out the champagne soon.... Stay tuned!
"So, if you are too tired to speak, sit next to me, because I, too, am fluent in silence".
...Because life can be hard, but it's better spent with someone you love.

Seriously freaking out about my new website, it's going to be sooo pretty 🖤 ps. Obsessed with Stephanie & Dallas!! Couldn't be happier that I finally got to meet them & photograph their love! Coming to the blog soon!
I took my husband on a walk on Sunday so we could slow down, enjoy some serenity and sunshine, and hold hands. Now I have a cherished memory of a tender kiss in the sunlight with all the geese quacking around us.
Boppin around Seattle today enjoying time off with my mama + meeting new clients in incredible greenhouses (casual). I love this city. But I also am mega grateful I live in Portland. Basically I'm obsessed with the PNW and I'm never leavin✌🏻.
