View All Weddings in The Northwest
Engagement Session at the Seattle Conservatory

I am a forever fan of O’Malley Photographers, and it will only take a little peek below to see why. They simply have a way of making magic from behind a camera lens - leaving this gorgeous couple with a set of images they will treasure forever and ever (and ever). See why I am such a huge fan here.

From O’Malley PhotographersWarmth can be hard to come by in Seattle this time of year, but the Volunteer Park Conservatory never disappoints with it’s lush, gorgeous succulents and airy rooms. Both Jackie and Patrick are Northwest natives so a shoot with an organic, natural and distinctly Northwest feel was just right for these two. They are planning a lovely island wedding this coming summer just outside of Seattle.

Rustic At Home Wedding

When your parents own a breathtaking 40-acre property, choosing a wedding locale is sort of  a no-brainer.  Especially if it’s the kind of rustic wonderland that is so out of this world gorgeous, it almost doesn’t seem real.  This, loves, is just such a place, with an adorable duo saying “I do” amongst fabulous rustic details and amazing views.  See it all captured by Amanda Lloyd Photography right here.


From the Bride… Kelly and I met one fateful day at Berbati’s, a bar in Portland, Oregon. Kelly started up a conversation and we quickly connected over our similar interests of our love of the outdoors and both going to school for professions in the healthcare field. We met up for coffee about a week later and from then on we were pretty much inseparable.

Kelly proposed after we went for a hike up Mount Si in North Bend, Wa. At the top we had a picnic lunch on our own little private rock ledge where he skillfully got down on one knee and popped the question! Kelly knew that I really wanted an antique wedding ring and he surprised me by picking the one I had fell in love with at an antique jewelry store in Seattle. Then for the wedding had custom antique bands made!

Our wedding day vision was inspired by our love of the Pacific NW incorporating rustic romance in a beautiful outdoor setting surrounded by trees and nature. We wanted our guests to feel comfortable and have fun! We spent a lot of time researching wedding venue sites and finally decided that our vision could best be achieved on my parents 40 acre property out in the country in Longview, Washington. The only problem was the site was completely undeveloped. We had to bring in tractors to clear and level the land, plant all of the grass, build a dance floor, create fire pits, and cut trees to build all of the arbors. This wedding was truly a labor of love with our family and friends pitching in to help. My mom is so creative and crafty. Together we shopped at craft stores, thrift shops, antique stores, and garage sales and had a blast making almost everything in the wedding!

Looking back we have no regrets. Everything was wonderful. We had a ton of people tell us how much fun they had and that they were sore from dancing so much! It was the most magical, wonderful day of our lives.

Rainy Seattle Engagement Session at The Center for Wooden Boats

Ok these two are just too cute for words. Their adorable shoot captured by Katie Parra Photography  is basically as adorable as they come, and it totally proves that a little rain will never ruin your shoot, heck, it might just make it better. See even more of these cuties here

From Katie Parra PhotographyHere in Seattle we get used to rescheduling photoshoots due to rain. Especially when we are planning on being outside for most of the shoot….like on a boat….in the middle of South Lake Union. Well having already rescheduled due to rain once before Sara, Stephen and I decided we were going to go for it despite the rainy day we were given. They were such troopers and luckily I was able to commandeer a boat with a roof. Our captain’s name was Jack….yup Captain Jack…..Sparrow?? At least that’s what we called him all afternoon. He was super nice and gave us a lovely guided tour through the floating homes and even took us by the famous Sleepless in Seattle houseboat. Hot chocolate with diamond ring marshmallows kept us toasty warm and we were greeted by two adorable ducks when we arrived back at the docks. The rain couldn’t dapper our fun afternoon and I think you will see in the images just how in love Sara and Stephen really are. They are practically glowing! I just know their wedding day is going to be something very special.
