I remember driving up to Leavenworth on the weekend of Rebeccah + Lucas’s wedding and completely being blown away by the beauty + fall colors popping out from the landscape! The closer we drove to Lake Wenatchee the more excited I became and started doing that thing most visual people do: picturing how the photos would turn out + how beautiful the day would be…

Lake Wenatchee Leavenworth, WA Wedding :: Rebeccah + Lucas

I’m going to be honest for a minute….taking photos indoors, without natural light, makes me a little nervous. (insert monkey-covers-eyes emoji) But at Wyndser + Justin’s December wedding reception at the Abernethy Center, there was one moment that made me completely forget about that nervousness.

And that moment, you guys, was when Justin surprised Wyndser by…

The higher I drove up Mary’s Peak for Wyndser + Justin’s engagement session, the higher I drove into a cloud. As soon as I got out of my car my fingers froze. Yeah, it was that cold. And windy. The first two thoughts that went through my head were…

Alllll the fall vibes from this a d o r a b l e little family session at Latourell Falls! Gina + Derek were so fun and just being around them made me forget all the stress of the week. I could tell they love adventure + the real, raw moments life holds by the way they interacted with

Finished off this crazy busy month of July by exploring Sauvie Island with Jasmine for her senior session! Hanging out with her reminded me of last spring when leaving highschool + adulting was staring me dead in the face (gosh, that makes me sound old). Being in her shoes last year made this session that […]

I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many mosquitoes in my life. As soon as we stepped out of the car and on this gorgeous field of tall grass for Rebeccah and Lucas’s engagement session, they were all over us. “Oh noooo the session is ruined!”, right?  N o p e These two handled it like pure […]

Me: “You guys want to climb on a boulder with a waterfall as your backdrop?” Kate: “YES” What a whimsical session! Client’s like Kate and Joe who are down for all the little adventures are my absolute favorite. They made it so easy stepping out of my comfort zone and shooting their maternity session out […]

So there I was. Waiting at the entrance of the PHX airport in Arizona….for people I’ve never met before in person. Ever. For a shy, socially awkward introvert like myself this was exciting yet pretty dang scary, so of course by this point I was doing that thing most socially challenged people do – rehearsing conversations.
