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!
Kelly and Alan’s Ruby Beach elopement reminds me of why I love elopements so much. Kelly and Alan wanted to keep it very simple, focusing on their story, while taking in the beautiful Olympic National Park coast line. We did just that and ended their day with the most dreamy of sunsets on the beach!
Ruby Beach is one of my favorite Washington coast beaches. It’s pretty popular and well known with lots of daily visitors but if you’ll scroll through the photos, there’s no question why. The driftwood and sea stacks make it unique, and depending on the tide and weather, it always looks a little bit different! It’s one of many locations you should check out if you find yourself on the Washington Coast and Olympic National Park!
Kelly has the sweetest soul and has sent me some of the nicest emails I’ve read to date. I loved being able to document their special day but truly love even more the fact that I was able to positively impact their entire experience and wasn’t looked at as just hired to do a job!
A few words from Kelly: “I appreciate how personable you are, as it was a true pleasure working with you! I just wanted to thank you again for saving our elopement. Without your assertive support, we probably would have been married in the parking lot next to the restrooms (haha).
