January Recap Post

January Recap Post

For 2016, I'm hoping to do monthly recaps. To see the year in smaller chunks, and to remember what happened. I feel like my life is speeding by, faster and faster, and I'm trying to slow down. I want to remember the highlights of each month as they happen, and since I've given up on having the...

Best of 2015.

Best of 2015.

Oh, 2015. You were a crazy, roller coaster of a year. I spent most of the summer in fear that a couple would call me, saying that their venue was destroyed by the forest fires. But luckily, that never happened! Luckily, we had amazing weather for almost every wedding, and 2015 was a great year. I...

I was hoping to have my best of 2015 post up for you all today, but I completely underestimated the time it would take to narrow down my favorite photos of the year! :/ I'm trying not to get all sad about 2015 being over, because 2016 hasn't started out on the best note. Sick for the first week,...

Hello, 2016. Let’s Do This.

Hello, 2016. Let’s Do This.

I'm endeavoring to make my monthly recaps a thing. They probably won't be my most popular posts, but I want to have some way to look back at life, and see what happened each month. Especially because I often get months behind in blogging weddings, and although I love blogging summer weddings in...

Getting Some Sun & Surf

Earlier this year, we realized that H had a lot of airline miles just sitting around. So we cashed some of them in and booked a vacation in the Caribbean for the first part of December. With the crazy windstorm that happened in November, adopting our puppy, and renovating the house, an almost week...

Hello, December

Hello, December

I sat down to write this yesterday morning, but it never happened. So I'm up early today, watching the snow fall outside my office window, and reflecting on the fact that it's December. Whoa. November was a crazy whirlwind. November is usually a whirlwind - finishing up wedding season, squeezing...

Year Three — Running a Business

Year Three — Running a Business

I wanted to write a sweet little post about what I've learned in three years of doing this full time. But then I realized, I don't know how it's been three years! It feels like it was just a year ago I was waking up on the first day I didn't have a day job and working in my jammies in the living...

It’s October

It’s October

Summer comes in and out of my life like a whirlwind. I can never fit in all the things I have to do and all the things I want to do, but I always end summer feeling like I've been through a tornado. Figuratively speaking, since Spokane doesn't have tornadoes. Thankfully. It's been a while since...

Behind the Scenes as a Wedding Photographer

Behind the Scenes as a Wedding Photographer

Happy Friday! Ever wonder what it's like behind the scenes at a wedding or engagement session with me? The majority of the time, I shoot alone, so there's no one around to take photos of me making faces and doing whatever it takes to get a shot. But sometimes I have a second shooter, or I drag my...

Maple Pass Loop // North Cascades

Maple Pass Loop. I didn't really plan to go hiking the day after Natalie & Sam's wedding. But when I asked them at the rehearsal dinner about a couple good Methow Valley hiking spots, they both recommended the Maple Pass Loop. So much so, that they told me H shouldn't do the hike on Saturday,...
