I love when life puts pure joy right in my path. I randomly met this beautiful family on the beach while in Hawaii the day before I was booked to shoot a wedding. After some small talk, they found out I was photographer and wanted to book me for a shoot while I was there. It was very serendipitous and I was so excited to celebrate with them through photography as he had just proposed to her. Those generous smiles were abundant throughout the shoot as well as the adorable, sand-covered baby legs!
Shooting the Heron Haus for The Artisans Group in Olympia, Washington was an exciting shoot. Having the opportunity to photograph architecture of this quality motivates me to continue and grow my craft. This company is providing cutting edge technology with the advanced homes they build. I love capturing the essence of a home while showcasing the design and spirit that goes into its construction. Their homes are an innovative melding of science and beauty with clean lines and impressive touches around every corner.
Ross and Spencer's wedding at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel in downtown Seattle was a day full of smiles, laughter and over-joyed, happy tears. The breathtaking backdrop for this equally striking couple created a grand ambiance of celebration. It was apparent from every shared glance this was a marriage of soul-mates. The abundance of love shared among all in attendance appeared from the beginning to the very end of the day. What a festive bash to document!
Nothing is better than when the sun comes out just in time to photograph one of my favorite people. I did this shoot for Olysocial's website and Instagram content. Olysocial specializes in brand development, social media strategy, marketing and consulting. Having the opportunity to photograph the talent behind the business made for a great day!
One of my favorite restaurants in Olympia is Chelsea Farms. This awesome establishment is now at the top of my list after having the opportunity to photograph the amazing people who own and work here! Their organic, sustainable farm to table operation creates some of the most delicious food out there. Add in the lively and friendly atmosphere and this is a must visit.
What's better than getting to spend the afternoon shooting the cutest small business owner and then cap off the day with doughnuts to go? Nothing could have topped the fun I had with Emily while taking her pictures at the General Porpoise doughnut and coffee shop in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. She needed new shots for both her website and social media and talk about unforgettable shoes! I am so excited that the fun we had doing these shots won't be the last, as Emily booked a family session for the near future.
Spruce Skin and Wax Shoppe located in Olympia, Washington was a gorgeous, relaxed setting to capture this sassy group of ladies. Offering a variety of services to meet all skin care needs provided the opportunity to capture pampering at its very best. Mingled with an exquisite shop full of every type of accessory imaginable, including their chosen collections of skin care lines, helped showcase Spruce's amazing customer service and dedication to their art.
Vance + Shelby
Taking the ferry boat from Tacoma to Vashon Island provided a unique backdrop for Vance and Shelby. Although the skies were drizzling, smiles were abundant as was the love shared between these two. Nothing was more heart warming than the looks they exchanged. Despite getting soaked by the rain before we finished, the laughter shared was the highlight of the day as well as these amazing images. I can't wait to shoot their elopement in September!
