Happy Thanksgiving lovers! This year has been unreal. I’ve met more ppl in the last 11 months than I have in the past decade and I couldn’t be more grateful. @laceandwaves are the babes making out by the waterfall - I met Rach at @alpinenorthwest and Dec and I were both at @ventureworkshop. Community + Learning + Waterfalls. That’s basically been my year 🤜🏻🤛🏻Life is so rad 🖤 Time for pie 🦃
Happy Thanksgiving! Feeling so grateful for all of the wonderful couples that have trusted me with capturing such an important day of their lives! Wishing you all a joyful day and filling feast. Count your blessings and definitely say thanks to those around you today! What are you feeling thankful for this holiday season?
From our 🍽 table to yours, we wish you a very 🍁Happy Thanksgiving 🍁!! We are so extremely grateful for dear friends and amazing vendors that again turn into friends, our outstanding clients that we love serving. So many wonderful things to be grateful for, but most of all family. Wherever you are or whatever you do today, we wish you love, laughter and kindness. 🍁!
Serious bouquet goals right here. This lovely hand-picked, herb-based bundle put together by the very talented @alliofthecarolinas just screams pacific northwest. If you look carefully you can even spot the kale (really).
How stunning and one-of-a-kind is this bouquet by @blommadesigns!? Can’t wait to share more from this styled shoot.

It isn’t about what history said, it isn’t about to adopt a new tradition but it is an excuse to be reunited with the people who support you the rest of the year and you don’t have time to do dinners everyday with them. It is about being more grateful for the good things in your life. It is about say thank you beyond the religious or culture. It is being present and laugh together. And for more many reasons more, we love celebrating Thanksgivings every year. Happy Thanksgivings to all of you for being here. 🎉

It's sneak peek time and...Oh. Em. Gee. Is this a beautiful couple or what?! I love them. And they looked like total movie stars all day! (@lilac_f0x5 You pretty much need to go pro because that makeup was perfection!) @jkpugh85 Peek away...no more until I finish! Unless I can't contain myself...then maybe one more. Or two...😜•••••••••••••••••••••• Hair: @h2u_hairstudio Bouquet: @centralmarketpoulsbo
These girls have literally known each other for a lifetime! Like back to the elementary days when braces and backcombed bangs with half up pony tails and scrunches were winning at the fashion game. These are the kinds of friendships you nurture, you fight for and above all, you cherish! #squadgoals
So thankful for all of the amazing couples I’ve gotten to photograph this year! Literally living out my dream and I’m so grateful for the people who have allowed me to be a part of their wedding day. #thankful
Excited to be celebrating our first holiday in our new apartment. Lots to be thankful for this holiday season!

We just spent the last few hours delivering albums, photo books, and prints to some of our amazing clients- it’s Printsgiving!!! Seriously, it’s a thing now, guys. We’ve already decided this needs to become an annual tradition! Next year we’re going to move our once a year “deck the halls” print sale (starting soon) to the beginning of November so we will have the joy of delivering even more photograph goodness on Printsgiving 2018!
Also, have you ever seen a cuter little assistant in your life?!
Today was the official first day of web design for my branding and web project! The last couple months we have been working on logo and brand concepts, customized graphics, and of course copy. It feels so dang good to finally be diving into the web design part of this project that I have poured my HEART + SOUL into.
When I decided to hand this task over to a team full of designers, artists, and copywriters I knew it would be work. I didn't know just how much work it was actually going to be. I'd be lying if I said it is easy. It's not. I couldn't imagine something I'm so passionate about being easy. But, it's been so worth it. Trusting the process and handing the reigns on over to someone who does this as a living was the best choice I could have ever made.
I'm super stoked to showcase the final product when it's all done so keep following along and I'll let ya know when we are close. ☺️
Today is my sweet friend Candice's birthday!! We first met when she booked me as her wedding photographer over 2 years ago - and I knew within minutes of our first meeting that we were going to hit off! And our friendship quickly grew and she is now one of my dearest friends here! She not only is killing it in corporate world working full time, but she also is an incredible baker and started her own company @eatmorecakebycandice that is quickly catching fire in the wedding industry! Candice is genuine, driven, kind hearted and a friend I can say I'm so thankful for!
Candice - I hope you have the best of birthdays!! Let's show her some love!! Go check out her page and if you are looking for a yummy christmas treat - her caramels are to die for and make the perfect Christmas gift! .
Making an apple pie and burning espresso scented candles tonight while feeling so grateful for all of the people I have been fortunate enough to meet and photograph this year. It’s been such a humbling and challenging time of growth and change. I wouldn’t have it any other way and my heart is so full.

No matter who you're spending Thanksgiving with, I hope it's full of happiness, laughter, good food, and lots of leftovers to take home 🥧 I'm on my way now to Seattle, and I’m totally prepared for the friendly family bickering 😜 Because what's a Dessin Thanksgiving without it? And this year is extra special, for the first time since we lived in Georgia, we're all under the same roof again 🙌 Only competitive game nights can come of this. Where are you spending the holiday this year? 🍂
You’re going to be seeing a lot of this session in the coming weeks, I’m so obsessed. Emily and Tyler were gifted a helicopter ride & what better use than landing above Pitt lake on the highest point of the mountain for some engagement photos at sunset. Blog post coming soon.
Look how warm and creamy 😭❤️ I want to go to Cali so bad. Or Texas. Or Florida. Or Arizona. Or anywhere. Who wants to fly me to them? Guys I LOVE to travel and cannot wait for my upcoming locations 😉👌🏼
