Brendon and Noella picked a gorgeous spot for their engagement photos this last weekend.  As photographers we love the Arboretum.  So much natural beauty around every corner especially as the cherry trees are in bloom!  The amazing pops of pink everywhere had us all swooning.  We’re so excited to be a part of their big day coming up in just a few short weeks.  Stay tuned for more photos of this beautiful bride to be.

Lord Hill Farms_ Snohomish WA _Harry & Chi

This is not your typical love story.  Harry first laid eyes on Chi at a conference he was attending in Hong Kong.  She was living in Thailand and he was here in the Seattle area.  After there initial meeting they kept in touch and continued to meet up/date all over the world.  These world travelers decided to make it official and tie the knot at Lord Hill Farms in Snohomish, WA with guests flying in from all over the world!  Their day was beautiful and punctuated by the most amazing cloud filled sky (stuff we photographers live for).  The decor and grounds were travel themed and could not have been more representative of this adorable couple.  Thank you Harry & Chi for allowing us to document your beautiful love story.

Private Farm Wedding_Hobart, WA_Sally & Cresap

Sally & Cresap met in the airline industry.  Cresap is a pilot and Sally managed new recruits.  When we met with them Sally’s enthusiasm for planning this amazing celebration of their love was totally contagious.  We believed it would be amazing and it was!  They were married on his parents beautiful property in Hobart, WA.  It was beyond what we expected.  The icing on the cake, so to speak, was the entertainment.  They hired their favorite band Vaudeville Etiquette to play the reception and they rocked the house!  This wedding was so much fun to be a part of  and we feel so blessed to have met this amazing couple. Best wishes newlyweds!

Filigree Farm_Buckley, WA_Wedding_Jennifer&Kurtis

Jennifer’s best friend worked with Kurtis and just knew they would hit it off so she introduced them.  This adorable couple both love animals, in fact, Kurtis works at an animal sanctuary it’s it’s not uncommon for him to bring his work home with him.  It’s fitting that they were married on a farm (Filigree Farm) with a few equine friends taking in the ceremony from the next pasture. It was a beautiful setting and an even more beautiful event filled with friends, family, and love.  Best wishes to you Jennifer and Kurtis on your new life together!




Red Barn Studios_Chehalis WA_Katie & Andy

We met Katie at a wedding.  She was the friend of the bride and the officiant for the wedding we were shooting.  Upon meeting this spunky little officiant in aviator glasses we knew we liked her but had no idea we would soon play a part in her nuptials as well.  Through Katie we got to met Andy and got to know them as a couple.  They are sweet, kind, and super goofy and we’re so glad to have met them both.  Katie & Andy, we had a blast!  Thank you for allowing us to be a part of such an amazing day.

All the best,

Christie & Liz

Laurel Creek Manor_Sumner, Wa Wedding_Kelli&Drew

Laurel Creek Manor is a beautiful venue in Sumner, Washington with the feel of an Italian villa. Everything from staff to the grounds were amazing and this, my friends, was the setting for Kelli & Drew’s June wedding.  These college sweethearts were thrown for a loop when Drew broke his ankle playing soccer shortly before they tied the knot.  Heading down the isle he used a scooter and for their first dance he used a crutch.  Really, it was quite endearing.  Nothing was going to keep him from marrying his gorgeous bride or tearing up the dance floor.  Crutches aside it was a beautiful day filled with fun, family, and friends.  Cheers and best wishes as you start your new life together Kelli & Drew!

Ray’s Boathouse | Seattle WA Wedding | Glen and Arielle

Arielle and Glen were married at the amazing St Ignatius Chapel on the campus of Seattle University. This little chapel was a photographers dream.  It’s won multiple architectural awards for it’s design and the natural light was amazing!  The reception that followed was a prohibition/20’s themed evening at Ray’s Boat House at Shilshole Bay.  Every last detail of this beautifully planned day were beyond dreamy. Congrats to you Arielle and Glen!  Wishing you many years of happiness and love.
