When I met Jack and Marie at their beautiful home in Seattle the connection was instant. I was so excited they wanted to do session that was authentically them and at the park right near their house. Jack and Marie told me how they often go there to walk their sweet little pup and we lucked out and even got some sun. The last ten minutes of the shoot it started POURING. I really wanted to head down to the water and to my surprise they were all for the idea! Because really…who cares when you’re in love and it’s raining. ;) What a great excuse to snuggle up and get some wonderful candid shots. Thank you Jack and Marie for a session I will always hold dear to my heart! Congrats and I’m so excited for you both to tie the knot! Hugs, Kristina

Capturing two people who love each other while the sun is going down is probably my favorite thing. Leslie and Kyle are running away to California to get married later this year and I’m so excited I got to capture them during this fun time in their lives. Being engaged is pretty great! New love, new ring, and the countdown is on for happily ever after. Thanks Leslie and Kyle for an amazing session. I wish you both many years of pretty sunsets and laughs together!
Love is pretty great, isn’t it? You find someone you want to spend the rest of your life with and BONUS they want to spend the rest of their life with you! It’s a win, win! I felt a connection with Tyler and Amanda very quickly upon meeting them. Easy going, happy with themselves and happy with each other. These are traits that I very much admire and act as a launching point to make meaningful and emotional images. We had so much fun at their session and I have to give Amanda props for helping me style the ring shot. It started with a little moss and we just kept adding. I love how it turned out! Amanda is a creative soul and has an Etsy Shop you can find HERE. Thank you so much for an awesome session you guys! Wishing you much happiness and joy as you count down to your wedding! CONGRATS!
Gosh, I’m SO excited to be blogging right now! Due to the high volume of sessions I shot this summer, blogging had to go on the back burner so I could stay caught up with my editing. I’ve missed sharing my favorite images with you and I hope you enjoy this post! Jadin and Carissa met me before the sun came up on one of those crazy cold mornings from a couple of weeks ago and I’m LOVING what we captured. They had the cutest outfit changes and snuggled close to stay warm. My fingers could barely push the buttons and dials on my camera it was so chilly! My extremities were in slow motion that morning, however my heart was racing because of how beautiful everything was! This couple, the light, and the frost were a recipe for magic! Thank you Jadin and Carissa! It was was for the books!
Emily contacted me in May and told me she got engaged and then married super quick and never had any photos taken! I mean a girl needs photos with her hubby, right?! It’s a must! I was so happy she contacted me and we were able to plan this session together! The love these two share is pure magic and I’m excited for their upcoming adventures together. California is gaining one amazing couple and puppy in the near future! Thank you Stephen & Emily for spending the evening with me and I wish you all the best! HUGS!
Donny and Alex met while attending Central Washington University in Ellensburg. When Alex suggested she wanted to go back to Ellensburg for their engagement session, I just about jumped for joy! I love the opportunity to travel for photos and am SO happy we made it happen! These images are absolutely stunning and I couldn’t ask for a more charismatic or in love pair to photograph. I also loved that Donny wore his uniform for the second half of the photo shoot. So thankful for all those who serve our country and the opportunity to provide meaningful photos for this incredible couple! And if you are wondering, “Where did Alex get those adorable dresses?!” BOTH of the dresses are from LOLA Lifestyle Boutique in downtown Olympia, WA. This is my FAV place to shop in Olympia and you will even see some of the photos from this session on display in her beautiful boutique. Thank you to Alex & Donny! So excited for you to get married this summer!!!
