I don’t know how we did it… but we out ran the hurricane AND the rain in general. It has been raining here for over a WEEK! It’s just miserable. I feel like I’m getting a little taste of what the Pacific North West deals with on a regular basis and I don’t know how they handle it. It’s sad! Last week the forecast said : RAIN, RAIN, cloudy, RAIN, RAIN and MORE RAIN. Guess when Matt and Kylene’s engagement session was scheduled ….. On the CLOUDY DAY! It was perfectly overcast and so the colors POPPED and we had free reign over the entire garden. The weather must have scared other guests away because we truly had the place to ourselves!
I loved getting to know these two as we walked around the gardens together. They were pros from the beginning…. and I’m not just saying that. They were awesome from shot #1!! We talked about the wedding, about mutual friends, about sports and about the puppies. Of course! How can you forget to talk about the puppies!? I think my favorite part of the shoot had to have been when we were walking past a gorgeous flowerbed and I stopped all of a sudden when it caught my eye. Before I could even get the words out of my mouth, Matt was in the flowerbed! He just read my mind!! Matt is an awesome nuzzler and Kylene is just drop dead gorgeous with the most amazing smile and so they really made the most photogenic couple!
Enjoy this brand new engagement session and get excited for their Ritz Carlton Wedding coming up in 2016! I can already tell that this is going to be one amazing celebration!! Matt and Kylene, we loved our time with you two. You are so easy to talk to and we’re thankful for a chance to get to know you better before the big day!!!

This beautiful day way unlike any wedding I have ever photographed before. It’s hard to put into words how powerful and inspiring it was.
If you’ve been following my updates since I got the R6 two years ago, you know I LOVE it!! It has been a game changer for me! But there is ONE mistake that I’ve made that cannot be fixed afterwards!
There are things that EVERY photographer should have on their website! We will walk through some students’ websites to see how small changes can impact their perceived value, and for you to see if what they’re missing is something that you are too!
You know what I’m realizing? I’m realizing I am loving getting to see people I love and miss in this very busy season of our life.
We’re gearing up for wedding season and there are so many ways to market yourself DURING a wedding to keep new clients coming in! I have been a wedding photographer for 13 years, and I have never paid for ‘traditional’ advertising!
I am eating my words again! For years, I have used InDesign for everything… but Canva had a HUGE update last year which changed everything!!
