It’s funny how I find time to blog when I absolutely have no time at all. Gena & Billy. Don’t even try to convince me that their smiles don’t transcend universes. It was a perfect PNW day. A drizzle here and there, but nothing that can beat that perfect diffused light from the clouds. And […]

Sometimes you don’t have words. Christine and Zach got that perfect fall light. im so into the fall light and couples who ooze love So this time, I’m going to let the pictures do the talking. Because you can’t describe the happiness they radiate in these.

Sometimes it astounds me how things work out.  Becky sent me an email saying that she had asked on her Facebook if anyone knew any wedding photographers. We had ONE friend in common, and she recommended me. A meet-up in Los Angeles and some laughs later, bam we were besties.  Becky and Bennet met while […]

That Seattle diffused light. Please give that to me every day please.  If I could do every engagement shoot in Seattle. I would If I could photograph friends in love all the time. I would. Leo and Jess are just the best. I’ve known Leo since my college days in Seattle (my liver hurt just typing […]
