Woodinville Lavender Wedding | Dana & Nick

My favorite kind of couple is one who can laugh and be silly together. Dana and Nick are one of those couples. They always seem to be smiling, and when they are with each other, those smiles turn to blissful grins. And then Nick makes a silly face, and Dana throws her head back and […]

Rattlesnake Ledge Engagement Portraits | Cassie & Matt

I love this location because it is the perfect Pacific Northwest wilderness setting, without being too far outside of Seattle. Most of the time, we just hang out at the bottom, getting […]
