Welcome to the blog! I’m a small-town Florida girl and Army wife relocated to the Seattle Suburbs, documenting love from one coast to the other. I live for a good PNW mountain breeze, sweat pants, and local eats. Let's be friends!

Intimate Mt. Rainier Elopement

Parker + Rip’s Intimate Mt. Rainier Elopement was really one of the books. They truly embodied living in the moment. Their emotion was so rich and real that time just seemed to stand still as I was capturing them.

It all started with the first look in front of one of Mt. Rainier’s many waterfalls – this one likely just a pop up from the spring showers we’ve been getting. Parker’s BHLDN wedding dress was absolutely stunning and the waterfall made for the perfect backdrop for their portraits. If you are a bride and still looking for your dress, check out BHLDN. They have the most stunning, classic dresses great for adventure elopements that tend to be easy to move in!

After one last photo in front of the waterfall, we headed over to the woods for their intimate wooded ceremony. Parker + Rips immediately family joined us, and it truly was the most perfect ceremony to celebrate their love and the start of their forever! 

One of my favorite moments from Parker and Rips elopement was when they took the time to dance with each other and their parents. Often times that can be left out during elopements, but not having a ballroom wasn’t going to stop these two! 

Parker + Rip, it was truly an honor to capture your special day. Cheers to forever and many adventures ahead!
