Lindsey & Jarin are the type of couple that make being in love look natural and effortless. Their interactions are so sweet and genuine and it was really a treat to get to capture some of those moments for them. Jarin is in the Army and was out of the state just up until their wedding in May, and left again soon after. He and Lindsey squeezed this session in during his brief visit home last week and I’m SO glad they did!
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!
You know that feeling when you get invited to a REALLY awesome party, but you have to decline because you're already committed to another event? That was the feeling I had when John and Angie asked me to photograph their wedding in Hawaii. Except the other event that I'd committed to was having a BABY, right about the exact time that they'd be saying 'I do' on the beautiful island of Maui. I was so incredibly disappointed to have to miss their big day, but my darling boy was obviously more than worth it. All that said, I was beyond excited when John and Angie asked if instead, I'd photograph their reception here in Washington.
