I just love my job! It is so wonderful to photograph a wedding for truly nice people! Cody, Nick and Aidan make such a wonderful little family. Full of humor and love. It was a joy to spend such a special day with them, and we all had a good laugh when Cody and her son changed the pace of their mother son dance and broke into Nae Nae. Cody could learn some moves from Aidan!
In the middle of a rainy week, even the rain stopped just long enough for the couple to say “I do” and celebrate at Gold Mountain Golf Course. We wish them lots of rainbows in the future. We could not be happier for them.Gold-Mountain-Wedding_0093

If it is true that rain on your wedding day is good luck, then Chris and Missti are going to have some awesome luck! Just as they started their “First Look” the rain started coming down sideways! It was really coming down for a while there, but by the time they said “I do”, the sun broke through and gave us a wonderful evening. Let’s face it, any day two people in love say I do, is a wonderful evening!

I am so excited to finally share Ryan’s proposal to Christine at Kiana Lodge. OMG! How adorable! I was so excited when Ryan called to ask me to photograph his proposal. This guy is an amazing planner! We did a walk through of how he wanted it to go several weeks before the actual proposal. I fully expected him to be so excited that he would forget everything we talked about, yet he pulled it off just as we had planned!

So, I hid in the bushes, trying to blend in and popped out when I saw him drop to one knee. I was able to get several shots before Christine even knew what was happening. I don’t think she even saw me for the first 5 minutes, as she was so focused on Ryan.

Thanks Ryan, for letting us share this special moment! It was amazing!

After eight years of sharing the ups of downs of life, Tristan and Raleigh shared a beautiful wedding day in Port Gamble. The two made sure it was a fun filled day for themselves as well as their guests. After a ceremony filled with laughter and smiles, the lively group donned light up glasses and necklaces on the packed dance floor to celebrate the day!

There were many unique touches made by the bride and her friends, including the paper flowers that were used for everything from table decor to the bouquets, and were stunning! The brides bouquet included a memorial to her sister as well. Her sister had made dozens of paper stars years ago, and Raleigh and her mom incorporated the stars as well as a cameo into the bouquet! So beautiful!

The couple picked awesome wedding vendors to make sure their day went well. It was a joy to work with this wonderful team including Karen Guyt at Studio G Events, the wonderful caterers Essence of the Thymes and one of my favorite DJs, Jerrod from GenX Productions.

It was a good, good night!
