Have I mentioned lately that veils are my favorite?! Because they are ❤️ My veil was 100% my favorite part of my own wedding day look. A mantilla purchased in Spain by my grandmother for her daughters to wear on their wedding days ... maybe someday I’ll download some of my wedding images off the CD (lol, technology) and post one here. What was your favorite part of your wedding day look?!

Dancing in the sunset like the models that they are!

When I asked Melissa what she loved most about David (besides his eyes and his beard 😉) she said she loved the type of dad he is. I love that this was her answer because seeing him with his kiddos yesterday, I could tell how loving and caring he is
.
True love goes so much deeper than lust and physical attraction. It goes into the root of the soul. The essence of the human being you are willing to share your life with
.
If you’re single, please don’t settle. Wait for the person that wants to know the deepest parts of you that you so gently tuck away from the world
.
Wait to be pursued and cared for. Wait for the person that will wipe your tears away and will want to stay up till 4 am talking things out
.
Wait to be courted and don’t get sucked into this “tinder population”
.
Love is worth it. It’s worth the wait. It’s worth the fight. Don’t let loneliness take your eyes off the prize
.
If you’re single and in the season of waiting, I encourage you to find ways to love yourself. Get to know yourself on a new level. Date yourself. Be your own best friend. When you’re happy alone, it’s a lot easier to be happy with someone else
.
And a little personal experience: when you least expect it, Love will come pounding on the door and will knock you off your feet
.
Comment below and let me know what are some of the things you look for in an ideal partner. I’d love to know!
Mine are loyalty, sense of humor, honesty, and kindness

Blue hour magic ✨ also just a quick side note: I love my couples so so much. Okay happy Tuesday!!

Sea side convo, tucked in a cove.

These two darlings are getting married on Saturday and I am simply giddy thinking about all the love and joy I'll get to capture and share with them. #yourfriendtographer

Putting together packaging to fit my new branding was so much fun! Beautiful packages are going out to clients on a weekly basis at this point. USB drives by @usbmemorydirect, prints by @whccpro, ribbon from @designaglow .

Last week these beautiful people recreated their first date, and I got to tag along to photograph it! A walk along the beach then a milkshake at Luna Park Cafe in Seattle. I love when a location have a story behind it! And love a session with some playfulness.

How's everyone's week starting out?

I’m currently prepping for today’s engagement session. Had such a wonderful time with Rosie and Joe yesterday!

Finally ordered a pump for my pool floaties instead of just almost dying every time I try to blow them up and now I’m just really feeling like an adult today, ya know?
