It feels gloomy as can be today in the PNW, but I was reminded while looking through this elopement how beautiful that gloom can really be ❤️

Instagram is great for some quick photo inspiration, but so bad for encapsulating an entire day into a single photo. They’re more work, but what do you all think of these scrolling posts? I like the idea of doing micro blog posts of some of the weddings I’ve photographed over the years.

Sound good?

#thisweekatchurch
I've been strong
And I've been broken within a moment
I've been faithful
And I've been reckless at every bend
I've held everything together
And watched it shatter
I've stood tall and I have crumbled
In the same breath
-
I have wrestled
And I have trembled toward surrender
Chased my heart adrift
And drifted home again
Plundered blessing
Till I've been desperate to find redemption
And every time I turn around
Lord You're still there

We could all use a little help sometimes 😉

In close.
Ok, I love the snow but now that it’s raining again I have to admit that my feet have been cold for over a week now and maybe I need to up my wool sock game. So until then, I’ll just pretend I’m in the Canary Islands with these two.

It’s DUMPING snow outside right now and I’m praying that everyone stays safe in the PNW. Our roads (hills) and drivers aren’t exactly made for snow, but it’s definitely beautiful to look at.

Taken at @cascadeworkshop and edited with a new @cascadepresets I’m testing!

Snowmageddon has officially hit!
Hope you’re all safe out there and avoiding the roads if at all possible. It sure does make everything look beautiful though 🙌🏼

Over time.
I’ve been archiving all 12 wedding seasons that I’ve photographed so far as well as testing like crazy for a new set of @cascadepresets, so I thought it’d be fun to share a photo from 2013 with one of the new presets applied. -

The edits definitely aren’t dramatically different thankfully, but it’s a testament to my theory that keeping colors and tones are natural as possible will always increase the longevity of the photos.

It’s funny how wedding photographers end up looking to the world like “portraits of people in pretty clothes in beautiful location” photographers most of the time instead. Don’t get me wrong, I love portraits in amazing places, but this is why after a decade plus I’m still loving this job.

Through it all.
One of my off-season projects this year has been to transfer all of my weddings to a giant archive NAS, so it’s been fun seeing familiar names pop up that let me revisit those times. @joshuanoom & @annie_noom got married 5 years ago last summer back in 2013 & it’s been so fun following their journey since, even recently into parenthood. I’ve been testing packs for @cascadepresets, so I thought it’d be fun for a little re-edit & share. I love looking back and seeing the work I’ve created over the years and knowing that those photos will definitely outlast this silly app that we tap our thumbs on throughout the day.

PS, Mr Noom did all of the icons and branding work for me as well as my Cascade stuff too. His work is amazing.

Who doesn’t love instant film??
I’ve been experimenting with the different options from @instaxhq & @polaroidoriginals lately and posted a video today about my results. Copy/Paste the link below or check my story highlights to view it!
