I’ve had the honor of documenting this precious family since their own parenting journey began, and I am so excited for Jake & Missy to welcome their second little boy into the world, and for sweet Alexander to become a big brother. Missy, my wish for you today is that you’ll soak up these last few weeks as a family of three, savoring the small moments that will forever be changed once Baby Boy #2 makes his appearance. When he does arrive, he will change your world - only for the better.
Karmen & Devin celebrated the most beautiful wedding day at the Mason Jar Gathering Barn, a Pacific Northwest wedding venue tucked away on the rolling prairie of Onalaska, Washington. Before making their getaway in a gorgeous 55 Chevy Convertible, they were sent off in true newlywed style through a tunnel of sparklers surrounded by friends and family!
If you’ve been to McMenamins before, you know it’s the perfect place for an epic party that can last for days and will be remembered for a lifetime. That’s what made this destination such a great spot for Lindsey & Jarin’s wedding! They were eager to celebrate with their closest family and friends and wanted to make sure their guests would enjoy themselves to the fullest. It’s safe to say they delivered on all counts!
Tracey & Steven have the sweetest love story. They met in first grade and after an enduring friendship that turned into romance, they officially became husband and wife on December 1st, 2018. It could not have been a more gorgeous winter wedding.
Brad and Victoria are self-proclaimed adrenaline junkies and love to visit amusement parks and explore new, exciting places. Victoria prefers the city and Brad loves to get lost in the wilderness, so together they experience the best of both worlds.
They’ve been friends since the first grade, and he was her first kiss - waiting at the bus stop in FOURTH GRADE! At that time, she still thought he had cooties, but their friendship eventually grew into more and soon they’ll be husband and wife!
Living in the Pacific Northwest means it might be sunny when I leave for a session and pouring down rain when I arrive 15 minutes later! The good news is our memories of the moments that matter most are beautiful regardless of the weather.
Zoe is a senior at Timberline High School and is on the varsity basketball team. This girl lives and breathes basketball and it was clear from the moment we met that she loves her team and the sport deeply. When she’s not on the court, she loves to cook and travel.
I find it somewhat serendipitous that Sean and Jessica grew up in the same town and went to the same elementary, middle and high school, yet didn’t truly connect until adulthood. Love like this is worth waiting for though, and these two make the most of every second they have together.
I’ve always loved Autumn. Even though I’m typically a little sad to see summer go, there’s something comforting about this time of year. No matter how dry, wet, short or long the summer months are, I can always count on Autumn, like an old friend that I know will be there to reunite with regardless of the previous season of life. Without fail, the leaves will change color and paint the ground orange and red and the air will become beautifully crisp. It’s a time of year defined by warmth and coziness, whether it’s in the form of an oversized sweater, a warm cup of spiced chai or somebody’s arms.
