Dustin and Molly | Maple Valley Wedding Photography

Molly and Dustin met 6 short years ago. They have been through some tough times in their lives over the past years, including Molly’s mom passing away of cancer just 2 months ago. After meeting in college, graduating college and now beginning careers, they have the opportunity to become husband and wife. Molly artfully crafted their wedding theme with a vintage inspired color palate of pink, mint green, gold and coral. They opted for a small personal cake accompanied by a gorgeous dessert bar; complete with rice crispies, red velvet cake pops, doughnut holes, and sugar cookies. I loved listening to each touching toast about the couple’s kindness and tenacity along with some really funny stories. It was a super hot day for Western Washington, but we were thankful for the beautiful weather that gave us a gorgeous sunset! They left in Dustin’s father’s Impala that he had immaculately resorted.

Camp Gilead Women’s Retreat | Carnation, Wa

This weekend I had the privilege of attending the Women’s Retreat at Camp Gilead in Carnation, Washington. Each year in May they host about 100 women who come together to have a relaxing weekend. There are workshops on things like canning foods, how to take better pictures of your kids, and biblical topics as well. I was really touched listening to some ladies teach on grief as they talked about their experiences loosing their loved ones at a young age. Some of us went for an early morning walk along the river, which is always a great way to start out the day!   If you ever want to get away without having to go too far-this is the place! They also host summer camp for youth of all ages. Our kids will be out there for day camp!Camp Gilead WomenCamp Gilead WomenCamp Gilead WomenCamp Gilead WomenCamp Gilead WomenCamp Gilead WomenCamp Gilead WomenCamp Gilead WomenCamp Gilead WomenCamp Gilead WomenCamp Gilead Women

Olympia Engagement | Greg&Heather

We met Greg and Heather in the wonderful town of Olympia for their engagement pictures. Although they live in Olympia, they’ve opted for a destination wedding at their vacation home in Chelan this summer. So to capture their love for both towns, we photographed their engagement pictures close to home.  It was fun walking around the dock and park getting to know them.  We are looking forward to their wedding later this summer!

Ohme Gardens Wenatchee Wedding | Bonnie & Chaz

We were so happy for Ben’s cousin Bonnie when she announced her engagement to a wonderful man named Chaz. We were honored when she chose us to photograph their wedding. Although we live in the same small town, we don’t get to hang out with them as much as we would like, so getting to photograph their wedding and learning more about their love for each other was a treat. They were married last weekend at Ohme Gardens, in Wenatchee Washington. Bonnie had worked at Ohme Gardens in the past, so the venue was a natural fit for them. Embracing Chaz’s love for coffee they found antique coffee cans to make into their reception centerpieces. Bonnie is an amazing floral designer and made all of the floral arrangements for the wedding, including her bouquet! We loved the bright colors she chose. It reflects their fun and quirky personalities.  We are so happy for them and hope they are enjoying their honeymoon in Cabo!

post will be extra long. We just couldn’t resist, with it being our family and all!

Craig&Tisha | Wenatchee Wedding Photography

I was so honored when Trisha asked us to photograph her and Craig’s wedding! Trisha has been my hair stylist for a long time and we were more than excited for her to be marrying Craig. They decided to have a small, family ceremony at Craig’s family church in Quincy with a reception at the Wenatchee Golf and Country Club where Craig spends a lot of time. They allowed us to go out into the middle of nowhere to a place that we had wanting to photograph for a while. Although the weather didn’t cooperate with us, we still enjoyed photographing their love! Congratulations you two!
