Amy and John's Vashon Island Engagement Session on Film

It's certainly not everyday I get to take a ferry boat ride or visit a lighthouse.  For Amy and John's engagement session I got to do both in a matter of one day and it was a dream come true!  We took the Fauntleroy ferry to Vashon Island and I fell in love! 

I love having the chance to photograph a couple's engagement session before their wedding, like I did for Amy and John.  It is a chance for us to laugh and get to know each other before the wedding day.  I see photographing an engagement session before the wedding as a kind of ice breaker.  My couple gets to see how much fun it can be being photographed (truly, it's an experience of connection between you and your honey!), and bonus, you'll get gorgeous photos and the anticipation for your wedding will only build.  I'm a fan!

Jessica's Vancouver Washington Headshots on Film

Jessica is one of those people who seems to have an aura of joy and wisdom.  When she enjoys something, she savors it wholeheartedly and is completely present in the moment.  Jessica is a Portland based fine artist and photographer who creates art for "radiant, big-hearted women who love nature and need reminders of calm and beauty".  Yes!  Sign me up.  We photographed her headshots at Frenchman's Bar in Vancouver, Washington.  It's a beautiful spot on the Columbia River that has sand, meadows, trees, and quiet paths.    

Jess, I'm honored to know you and inspired by your determination and the way you uplift others!

Brittany and Jason's Washington Gorge Holiday Session on Film

I shot Brittany and Jason's holiday photos at St. Cloud Wayside in the Gorge on the Washington side.  Brittany is an incredible film photographer, insane go-getter (MPH student), animal lover (see her cute pup Emmy Lou below!), and one of the absolute sweetest people you'll ever meet.  St. Cloud's is an old apple orchard.  In the fall you'll find fallen apples, crispy leaves, swaths of mist, and a dreamy view of the Gorge and Columbia River.  The perfect place to capture fall in the Pacific Northwest.
