Love this photo of Jasmine &
Kevin! I stole them away for 5 minutes during their reception & it was just a little misty out. 🌟Swipe left to see it in B/W! I can't decide which one I love more! Which one do YOU like the best? Tell me in the comments! 👇🏼😍👇🏼🎉
Just delivered Kathy & Eric's beautiful wedding gallery!... It's been a long week for me already and I thank you for your patience anyone that has emailed me or is awaiting galleries. My family is going through a lot this week and prayers would be appreciated. Thank you 🙏🏻
Maybe it's the stars that keep draw me back to you, the remnants of constellations in our bones longing to align the way they were always meant to be. ~ Jessica Takoff // Yesterday's stunning wedding in Portland was one for the books! Thank you Liz & Ryan for having me in celebrating your love and allowing me to document your wedding day.
Up on the front page of @weddingchicks this am. ❤🎉 this inspiration shoot was hard. Not gonna lie. I had a huge cold. But working with the best people makes everything better. Normally I'd rush home to suffer quietly, but this kind of creativity is magical and staying to soak in every last piece of goodness from talented vendors was so worth it.

Simplicity. Andrea was a classic, beautiful and graceful bride.
Sometimes I think we can get caught up in these epic locations for a wedding which are amazing but a simple portrait of a bride on their wedding day can say so so much.
Spent my morning researching places for Ethan and me to spend our free weekend that is coming up here shortly (I know it's only Tuesday, but bear with me). So many of the camping spots we wanted to go to are all smoked out because of the wildfires, so we are starting from square one:/⠀
We are thinking maybe trying out "glamping" on Orcas Island...and I'm kind of down!! Has anyone else done glamping before? Ethan showed me a picture of it yesterday and it was so funny!! It is literally an outdoor bedroom in a giant tent!!
This misty morning is the changing of seasons. Fond memories of the spring #whidbeyflowerworkshop hosted by @tobeynelsonevents Working on my table plan for my wedding Sunday and trying to remember all the tricks @kalebnormanjames and @passionflowersue gave us.

Not even a smokey day can dampen this gorgeous, classic Lake Washington wedding. Planner Shauna, Asst Kate & Floral Designer Courtney knocked it out of the park at Seattle Tennis Club this weekend! pc: @katee_206 | flowers @courtneyforsimplywed | planning @shauniemart @simplywed | venue @seattletennisclub
How about a little love on the lake from this last weekend's wedding at Elkins?! Congrats to Hayley and Eric - your day was simply perfect! ♥️ Can't wait to share more details from this very special event! #loveonthelake2017
Fully enjoyed a Girls Day on Saturday.
We got our nails did.
We shopped till we dropped at IKEA.
We enjoyed delicious drinks and much needed girl talk.
Nurturing friendships in your 30's when you're married with children takes effort. You have to choose time with those that help you laugh, relax and grow.
We definitely enjoyed random road-trips to California in our teens and 20's, late nights at Starbucks, movies every weekend and staying up late writing music and dreaming about our futures.
Now, we're in "our future", and we're living such a blessed life! We're married to amazing men, have incredible kiddos and work at the same job! I know that this time is ordained and blessed.
Stop to take time and invest in the ones you love and those that love you. The ones who pour life into you. Who help you remember who you are. The ones that encourage you, remind you of goals and help you to be silly. "Close friends are truly life's treasures. Sometimes they know us better than we know ourselves. With gentle honesty, they are there to guide and support us, to share our laughter and our tears. Their presence reminds us that we are never alone."
I never post my boudoir sessions cause ya know...risky move. But I do shoot them so book away! It's never to early to think of Christmas or Valentines gifts. Email me for a detailed price guide and tell your girlfriends. Maybe we'll have a boudy party. 😉🥂🍾
We are now officially booking for 2018! We've had some amazing weddings this year and can't wait to see what next year holds. Dates get filled quickly, especially Summer dates so, contact us to schedule a consultation and cake tasting. We also have a few dates left for this Fall. 🍰
Can't wait to go camping again! NYC was awesome but we are so dead from all the running around. What's your favorite camping spot in the PNW? I have a feeling we will need a much slower getaway here pretty soon. 😂🤷🏻♂️
Here comes kind of a sappy post!! I've had so much fun this summer and also experienced some pretty serious personal growth. I went out of my comfort zone and because of that I've met so many new wonderful people which is something that used to absolutely terrify me. It's just been a really good and really busy summer but I wouldn't have wanted to spend it any other way and I just want to say I'm grateful to say I've made new friends and had the opportunity to hang out with some pretty amazing people and I'm excited to meet and shoot with more this fall 😘 and that's it!! those are my words!!
Taryn and Ryan and married and sorry/not sorry I will be posting lots of images from their stunning Seattle wedding!

We're saying farewell to summer and ushering in autumn this week, but only after we take one last look at the lovey blooms of summer! Like this stunner by @floranovadesign, captured by @katieparraphoto and planned by @perfectlyposhevents_bridget 😍
