Red & Gold Autumn Wedding in Washington

The more I scroll through these Laura Nelson images, the more I’m convinced this just might be my favorite autumn wedding EVER. Tucked away in pine trees of Washington, it’s a day that lets nature’s beauty speak for itself, while layering in moments like the ceremony arch, eye-popping florals, and rich, seasonal hues all styled by Kae & Ales. More wedding goodness right over here.

From Laura NelsonIrina & Denis’ Wedding took place in Battle Ground, Washington at a private residence surrounded by towering pine trees and both of their families. There was so much love surrounding them that day! Kae & Ales styled everything so beautifully, from the wild warm autumn hues of the ceremony arch to the tablescapes adorned with fresh fall fruits and foraged flowers.

Hot Cocoa Picnic

Two of my favorite things: hot cocoa and picnics.  So throw them together in a fabulous holiday-inspired love shoot with the talented duo behind Amy Tanton Designs and it’s guaranteed to be pure magic.  Think warm and cozy moments intertwined with a whole lot of rustic prettiness. See it all captured in beautiful images by Miranda Todd Photography right here

From Amy Tanton Designs… My husband and I create so many weddings and events for other people, I decided that we needed a fun little day out by ourselves. So I gathered a basket with hot cocoa, milk and cookies and we headed out to the woods to have some time away from the world and focus on each other and the holidays that are ahead!

Our last professional photos were taken nearly three years ago, so it was long overdue for some new pictures to line our hallways, so I had Miranda Todd Photography come out and take a few pictures. We had so much fun styling this winter hot cocoa picnic. It simply was the cutest thing ever. We had hot cocoa, milk and cookies, and a bundle of blankets, pillows, and sheep skins to keep us warm! It was the most romantic afternoon. We talked about our future in our business and our dreams and aspirations while we sipped on the most delicious yummy hot cocoa.

We love picnics and long walks, so it seemed fitting to have an afternoon focused on both of those things!

Puget Sound Oceanside Engagement

When your engagement session is this naturally gorgeous, I can only imagine what the nuptials will entail. In perfectly secluded surroundings, Jake Anderson was behind the lens of this dreamy e-sesh and snapped up the stylings of Emily Grace. Wide open spaces were filled with warm smiles, sweet kisses, and happy hearts that are sure to overjoy with one look at this gallery.

From Jake AndersonJosh and Karrah have an affinity for adventure, and are exactly the couple whom inspire me the most. We had planned a fairly typical engagement session to occur just outside of Seattle, but during my time with them during the day, they mentioned an island in the Puget Sound, on which Josh had been doing research the summer prior. In their description of its character and beauty, I immediately knew we needed to break from the plan, and make every effort to shoot on this island. The next morning, a 3:30am alarm, 6:30am ferry out of Anacortes, and a 7:00 A.M. sunrise session later, I can easily say it was the most fun I have ever had making images. Josh and Karrah’s lives have been centered around nature, and they found the environment extremely fitting for their relationship and affection to be documented.

In discussing their style, Emily Grace created a wardrobe exuding the personalities of both Josh and Karrah. They both described their styles to be neutral and simple, and Emily ran with that in the best of ways! I thoroughly enjoyed the way in which their outfits compliment the surrounding environment so perfectly; yet with enough of their own individual touches to make it extremely personal.
