Jason & Melissa | Cedar Rapids Wedding Photography

What a perfect summer day this was. Jason and Melissa were married in Cedar Rapids, Iowa this July – surrounded by an incredibly loving family and oodles of fun nieces and nephews! I was honored to be a part of this day, and to witness the depth of love and commitment between this wonderful couple. Thank you, Jason and Melissa, for inviting me to be a part of your special day!

Dennison Family | Seattle Newborn & Family Photography

What a beautiful family! I loved spending a morning with baby Owen and those who love him most. Between dinosaur adventures and moments with Grandma and Grandpa, the time was filled with joy and excitement in celebrating a new family member. Thank you, Dennison family, for sharing a morning with me!

Sneak Peek | Tyler & Lauren | Downtown Seattle Engagement Photography

Tyler and Lauren are engaged! He popped the question in September, and their wedding is coming up in just a few months. Enjoy this sneak peek from their rainy Seattle Olympic Sculpture Park engagement session. Tyler and Lauren were adventurers to the core; not only enduring the rain, but (dare I say) maybe even enjoying it! Thank you both for hanging out with me on a truly Pacific Northwest morning last week, and congratulations!

Dennis & Renee | Mukilteo Lighthouse Engagement Photography

It’s been a busy summer, and I’m finally catching up with blog posts. I am so excited to share Dennis and Renee’s engagement session! They just got married this past Sunday at a beautiful ceremony in Monroe – and I can’t wait to share a sneak peek from their special day. Stay tuned for that post in the next few days! For their engagement session, we spent a gorgeous evening at the Mukilteo Lighthouse Park with WA state ferries coming in and out of the dock the entire time as the sun set will golden perfection. Dennis and Renee met while working at Boeing. He has introduced her to exciting things like mountain biking – and I was also very happy to learn that Dennis finds ice cream in large quantities to be as important as I do (choose the large bowl for ice cream, friends — don’t settle for a sad single scoop!). Congratulations, Dennis and Renee – it has been such a joy getting to know both of you!
