Senior // Brianna

On this brisk winter day (temperatures below freezing), Brianna never let this affect her mood. This poised athlete carried herself with confidence and grace throughout our shoot. She even went as far as to wear her dress as the sun was setting over the Seattle waterfront. Serious commitment. (A few goosebumps maybe have been airbrushed out of these photos. :)

It may have taken me hours to regain feeling in my in fingers (must have taken Brianna an entire day), but it was so worth it. Many of my favorite shoots from this last year have happened on the coldest days of winter, and this shoot is no exception.



Family // Discovering fun in the Park

You would never be able to tell that this relaxed family was packing up to move across the country in a few days. Even more impressive than that, their personalities & interactions didn’t change when the camera came out. No coaching necessary, they just had fun with playing with their daughter in one of their favorite Seattle parks. And I had fun chasing after them.



Wedding // An Intimate Beach Wedding

An intimate ceremony on Laguna Beach with their closest friends and family, the reception following at Seven4one. Aimee and Joe’s wedding was breathtaking from start to finish. Because they wanted to spend their wedding day focused on friends, family & each other, they asked for limited posed photos. I loved the challenge to capture their wedding day as it happened, largely unaffected by my presence. I’ve shared a few of their photos before, but couldn’t help but include a broader selection from their hot & sunny September wedding.

And a special thanks to Seven4one & Events by Robin. Around every corner was a new and thoughtfully designed room perfect for capturing every part of their wedding day.

And, quite possibly, my favorite bouquet ever by #BellaBlooms
