Boho-chic, Washington Wedding // Lauren + Kris

 

this is what you need to do… rent a giant airbnb with all your closest friends and make a wedding WEEKEND. eat the best snacks, play games, take too many pics of the cute goats next door, and HECK, have an impromptu rehearsal right in the backyard. kris & lauren did that well - they chose community and people throughout their whole day (and weekend), they celebrated the “village” that had been a part of shaping both of them separately and together. it was SO beautiful.

this boho-chic wedding was not only a DREAM to shoot, but the life that fueled it was so genuine, and I believe that is what makes good images (but, the Rue De Seine wedding dress helps haha)!

there’s an energy behind these two - it’s fierce kindness and welcoming spirits, and I am SO grateful that I got to capture their day!

Intimate, Backyard Wedding // Portland, OR

 

wow, wow, wow, talking about the sweetest, intimate day full of close friends and celebration! Josh & Lilly had the most beautiful backyard wedding, which was basically a magical, forest-y dream!! We ate tacos, trekked through the ferns for photos, and danced late into the night! 

 

Tacoma Waterfront Engagement session

 

These two!! A huge reason I add complimentary engagement sessions to my wedding packages is to make sure we have a chance to HANG OUT and just have fun so we're not strangers on the wedding day! And these two wonderful people are such a prime example - we had soooo much fun running around the tacoma waterfront! Their wedding isn't until September, but I happen to run into them at another wedding they were guests at in Portland, and it was like seeing friends!! That's what I want it to be like!! I want to hear about your wedding, but also JUST ABOUT YOU TWO! I want to hear what you do for fun, learn about what makes you excited, I really do mean it when I say I want to hear your stories! So, definitely take me up on that engagement session, and I promise it'll be super fun!
