Shaw Island, Washington Wedding Photographer: Kelsey and Hugh

I loved this wedding. Absolutely loved it! Not only did I totally fall in love with Kelsey but I adored both of their families and their friends. One of my most favorite things about this wedding was during the ceremony they both washed each others feet like Christ did in the Bible. It was such a sweet and tender moment I actually got teary eyed, which hardly ever happens.

I loved how Kelsey gave this wedding a beautiful DIY touch and made everything special and specific to their story. The barn they got married in was built by Hugh and his father and took over 6 years to build. Everything had special meaning, which made it that much more beautiful. I loved this wedding because I was able to work with my dream team (Rob on Videography and Francys as my assistant). I love working with these two because they are not only my dearest friends, but we work so dang well together! I love spending time with them, too.

Going back and looking through all these photos really gets me excited for this Summer. There are so many weddings at different places that I haven’t been to and I am really looking forward to new scenery. This is my down time to really reflect and figure out where I need to get better as a photographer and business owner. I can’t wait for Summer!

 

Hold on tight- this may be a long post!

Bonney Lake, Washington Wedding Photographer: Ian and Chelsea

We’re in the middle of Winter and all I can think of is Summer. I think thats why I love Spring so much, because I know Summer is just right around the corner.

 

I am in the middle of getting photos ready to update my website and am so excited to share with you my new website coming soon (there have been some issues with my current hosting company and its making things a bit difficult time wise). I am also trying to blog some of the weddings from last year and make new albums for my future bride and grooms to look at. This wedding was truly gorgeous! If I were to do my wedding over again, it would probably look a lot like this one. I love lavender and the color purple (not to mention that’s one of my favorite movies). Chelsea’s dress was so beautiful, elegant and flowey (chiffon is my favorite fabric). She wore a Sarah Seven wedding dress and had lavender bouquets. Their ceremony was held outside at Kelley Farm in Bonney Lake, WA. I would love to do another wedding out there sometime in the future!

 

One of my favorite things at weddings are the toasts. That’s when I really get to know what my couple is like and their love story told by their family and friends. Its so fun listening to their stories.I actually learned that Ian will most likely be in the next Winter Olympics! I love these two and how sweet and humble they both are. I loved being their wedding photographer!
