Emma :: Marysville Getchell High School, Class of 2014

Meet Emma –– a sweet senior at Marysville Getchell High School. I love photographing seniors and incorporating their unique interests! I met Emma and her mom at the church she has rehearsed at many times in Everett with the Seattle Children’s Chorus. It’s a beautiful building with huge stained glass windows. I had the honor of hearing Emma sing, a cappella, in the large sanctuary – an experience I will never forget. From there we headed to a hill she has run up and down many times (she’s big into running!), and finally finished the shoot at her school, around the BioMed campus and on the track.

Here’s to an awesome future ahead, Emma! Keep blessing the world with that voice of yours!


 

Paige :: Cascade High School in Everett, WA – Class of 2014

One of the best parts of my job is the relationships I get to build with families. I photographed Paige’s older sister a few years back, and had the honor of capturing Paige’s senior photos this fall as well. She is an amazing softball player with a beautiful personality.

Meet Paige!

Rachel & Casey :: Swans Trail Farms Wedding, Snohomish

Rachel and Casey had a glorious fall wedding with a pumpkin theme! In fact, one of the Swans Trail employees said that out of all of the weddings she has seen at Swans Trail, she’s never seen anyone use pumpkins! It was unique, beautiful, and a fun kick-off to the autumn season. I have been amazed at how the couples I’ve photographed this year have crafted their details. Ladies, get this – Casey designed the wedding cake himself! As seen in the pupmkin patch photos, Rachel and Casey are up for adventure. They were engaged in Belize, and spent their honeymoon far from the typical warm destination – they went on an Alaskan Cruise! Enjoy attending their wedding day through the lens.

The oh-so-sweet cake, thoughtfully designed by Casey.
Married!!
I love this moment between the two of them – complete confidence and bliss!
A quick quiet moment before dinner and dancing…
The last dance.

So many congratulations, Rachel and Casey! Thank you for allowing me to document your love story.

Sam & Phil :: Swans Trail Farms Wedding in Snohomish

Sam & Phil’s wedding day was overflowing with love and FUN. I can’t say I’ve ever met a more hilarious wedding party – they kept me laughing! These two share so much happiness together and their joy just shone through all day long. A pastor who flew in from Tanzania, wood-fired pizza, parasols instead of flowers, a polka-dotted wedding dress… just a few unique parts of their day. At the reception, Phil serenaded his bride with an epic rendition of  “She’s the One” by Brice Springsteen. The getaway was illuminated with glow sticks, and after they drove away in the dark a whole mess of the glow sticks shone on in the night scattered over the ground. Thank you for entrusting me with your wedding memories, Sam & Phil – it’s a day I won’t ever forget!

Phil talking with his bride through the door. They didn’t see each other until that beautiful moment when she came down the aisle.
Moments before the ceremony began, Sam peaked through the curtain and announced that she was going to go get married.:)
Married!!
Phil’s epic serenade.
