It has been a windy & gloomy (typical) Seattle day, and I am missing this view. Our stay in #oahu at the Park Shore was seriously amazing, and I desperately want to go back. I can work at MAC in Hawaii, right?! 😂🍍🌴🌸 #oahumakeupartist
I can't believe it's nearly the holidays again! This year has flown by, but in the best way. Trying to get ahead a little, with baby boy coming any day now! Ordered our team Christmas cards today (message us your address if you want one!) And sending out more contracts for 2018. .
Now this lovely shoot with @wildbloomfloral @yessielibby @lindseygagephoto @smgmodels . @meganmoes @laquanaragon @sarehnouri @trilliumtailor (more vendors tagged) was the first of many shoots last winter. (As featured on @trendybridemagazine ). This winter, none planned and just focusing on family time! BUT you know we'll be back in 2018 with some fun things!
Are you ready for the holidays?! What's one thing you're doing early this year, hoping to ease the hustle and bustle and enjoy?? #seattleweddingplanner#holidaywedding#sarehnouri
Yes, my husband picked out this stunning ring all on his own. 😍 fun fact: hubby and I are total opposites, I'm overly excitable and prone to getting carried away on the latest big idea. He on the other hand is sensible and my man of subdued excitement. #bjonesphotography
Can we just talk about how on point Brittany’s wardrobe was? Geez.
Also, rainy Seattle weather has got me missing the summer sun. Also, I’m probably gonna have to get contacts at some point. 👓 + 🌧 = 👎🏻
I do not think I will ever grow tired of how beautiful it is here in the Pacific Northwest. There is something so unique about its charm and I see why so many people travel to this area for their photos (or to take photos!).
Looking for a way to spruce up the front entrance for your wedding or event with us? You might consider something as simple as welcome signage, candles, & a gorgeous floral arrangement which can really change up the look. #transformationtuesday#beforeandafter

Dark, rustic, moody watercolor place cards for a winter wedding in Texas. 🖤☁️✨
Any Parks and Rec fans out there? The name in the top left totally reminds me of ‘Burt Macklin’. 😂
P.S., Had to bust out the #finetecgold for this one, because as much as I love @drphmartins ‘Copperplate Gold’, it just wasn’t popping enough against the burgundy.
When you happen find a @ponderosa_and_thyme boquet at the venue you're shooting at you absolutely have to take a picture! This boquet is gorgeous! 😍😍😍 Thanks for leaving a piece of your work for me to find Katie! 😁😁😁
First day working for the business as my day job. Absolutely in love so far. I’ll keep y’all updated cus that could change. I mean, I’m an introvert but...not so much that I want to never be around anyone ever. 😂
When I get married again ( 😉 ) I'm wearing @bellabelleshoes, absolutely. I may or may not have tried these on when I got them for our Rainier Club shoot and very much fell head over heels for them. No pun intended❤️
Rocks on rocks on rocks. Lydia mentioned while we were hiking that she likes to collect rocks wherever she goes (I actually do the same thing 😋) so I figured this would be a fun way to do a ring shot 👌
Amanda and Mason's beautiful engagement session in the Snoqualmie Pass has hit the blog this morning! I loved wandering by some of my favorite rivers with them and Amanda's dress was simply to die for!
See more on the blog.
This dress, from @laineemeg by @mikaellabridal is a stunner on @paigebonvallet . Hair and makeup by the lovely @theouteredge . Planned/shot by @bluerosepictures . Florals by us!!! at the @hotelsorrentoseattle . Big thanks to @kellypulls for the gorgeous flowers to work with 🌱. Temp link in profile.
Happy Monday! I'd love to hear one goal you have for the week. Mine? Finish the nursery before baby boy makes his appearance. Can't wait to share some fun decor details from his room!
Make it a great day!
Who has not done a lick to prepare for Thanksgiving?! 🙋🏻🙈Totally dreading heading out to the grocery stores today 😩

Here are some of my favorite tools for #productivity . Just add one cup of drip coffee with creamer, two slices of peanut butter toast with honey, and the coffee house covers radio station and I'm unstoppable!! Is it surprising that I run this whole business on practically those things alone?

One of the things I love most about my job is that each day is different, each couple is unique and each wedding celebration is a new opportunity to be creative. I thrive on variety! With 5 weddings at @delillecellars this past season and having worked there over two dozen times over my career, I was extremely excited to try a fresh approach to the layout and flow of the venue for E+M's wedding! We threw out the tried-and-true approach to DeLille and brought in this gorgeous sailcloth tent for dinner to achieve a more elegant countryside ambiance. I LOVE when my couples are just as creative and excited about crafting a celebration that is distinctly them!! • 📷 @kristenmarieparker // Planning + Design #hollyperfectlyposhevents
Cliffs of Moher, Ireland 🇮🇪 I’m dreaming of photographing a couple in love here. You can get killer low prices to Ireland, just like we did. Elope, do something different and something extra memorable. Message me & let’s chat!
Here’s a little Sunday “what is Anna thinking about” post for y’all. Sometimes I’m a woman with a plan, and sometimes I wing it. And you know what I’ve realized, the moments where I let go of the structured plan or design are the moments where I find freedom in creativity and really push myself to a new level. I’m not saying planning is bad, it’s GOOD, but so is allowing the creative gift inside you to flourish and come forth. That is also why I think it is so important to create your own design aesthetic, rather than just imitating someone else’s or repeating the same thing over and over again. Be you, not a copycat of another designer, there’s so much more freedoms in doing your thing! Okay - I’m done now, and if you’ve made it this far into reading my post, you’re the best. 🙌🏻
