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!
These two…their day was everything I envisioned for them and more! After being together for well over 6 years, Ryan and Jess tied the knot at the beautiful Wine & Roses Country Estate in Auburn. Their team of vendors worked tirelessly to bring their vision to life and it was nothing short of amazing. I loved how relaxed yet fun they were on their wedding day! Something I dream of for all of my couples. Having bought a house with 8 acres and a barn, they liked the idea of having their wedding in a similar environment keeping it classic with a touch of rustic. I definitely had a thing for the old barn wood, Jess’s table decor and a pear tree you can find on the property. It’s the little things that make me one happy photographer! 😉
I adore sweet gifts and letters on wedding days. <3
The first look…
These goofs! They had me cracking up quite a bit!
Two families that became one!
His look says everything.
And hers does too.
Something new that I haven’t seen at a wedding before. The wedding rings were passed between the bridesmaids and groomsmen for each of them to hold and say a prayer for the relationship. So sweet and thoughtful.
Jess’ dad built this vintage truck for them. Of course photos with it were necessary. How cool?!
When you can’t decide which first dance photo you like best, you put both in the blog.
Caught them on my way out the door having this special moment while all their guests exited for the night. I love REAL moments.
Congratulations Jess + Ryan! I couldn’t be more honored to tell your wedding story.
