Krista + Mike Married | Bellevue, WA

We knew Krista before she met Mike, and this girl an incredibly infectious laugh. I’m so glad she ended up with Mike, who brings it out even more in her. This was the wedding we had all been waiting for, and it was a good one. Thanks for having us, Krista and Mike.

Carly + Brendan Engaged | North Bend, WA

Carly and Brendan enjoy the outdoors, so obviously we hit it off pretty quickly. When they let us pick the location for their engagement shoot, we decided to take them on a hike (it’s not every couple you can do this with, so we thought we better take advantage). I don’t think they were anticipating a five mile hike with freezing fog, wind, and rain at the top of the mountain. Well, neither were we. We saw the amazing view below for a brief couple of minutes before a thick fog moved in and all we could see was white (unfortunate after that long climb up). We were all shivering and wet, trying not to get blown off the cliff. Despite the weather, these two were such good sports about it, and their love and affection never faded. Their wedding will be a breeze after this experience together!

Sandra S. - The green colors in this are STUNNING. And I think she’s rather brave for being so natural and rain-soaked during her engagement shoot–I definitely admire her for it.
