Claire and Balaji are married – and not yet married! They have had a traditional Indian ceremony, and are looking forward to their western wedding at the Woodmark Hotel this May. It’s hard to explain how happy this photoshoot makes me. First off – the weather seemed like it was the only perfect day in March this year (rainiest on record here in Seattle ). Second – these outfits!! What amazing colors and personality! Third – these two had ideas! I love ideas! I have them too, and always try to push my brain out of the box, but it’s much for fun when everyone plays! I’m so excited to get into what is going to be an amazing summer . I’m a lucky girl to have been found by such thoughtful and sweet clients.
This couple you see here, are two of the classiest clients I’ve ever had – and I have a long list of incredibly amazing clients. Colin and Michelle are a confident modern couple who pulled together a super stylish and crazy fun New Years Eve party. With a gold theme reception in the Arctic room, how could it not be over the top special.
In their back pocket: Megan Clark of Clutch Events ( also super stylish and crazy fun ) coordinated a 250 guests list for dinner, dancing and New Years Celebrating!
It was a joy to watch them have such a good time. A special thanks to my second camera professional, Karen Derby, who always blows me away with her detail shots and journalistic moments. Thank you sharing your talent with my business and my clients!

This was such an exciting wedding to photograph! One: because I have known Tricia for a long time, through a whole bunch of past brides that are her friends, and two: because the weather was CRAZY!
A very windy and stormy day it was – UNTIL – the sun decided to come out for their Edgewater Ballroom sunset. She is a special one to me and I wish her and Chris ( and their friends ) all the best for the future!
What a great summer wedding season! I can’t explain how grateful I am to be part of these couples extra special Day.
So fantastic to have marriage equality in our state !
Brett and Alpha came from Austin, with all their family, to celebrate at the Sorrento Hotel in Downtown Seattle.
Lindsay and Daniel had the most fun day – they and their friends did not hold back on the good times! The weather was as perfect as can be at Delille Winery.
This couple is extremely sweet and sincere – married on a cruise on the prettiest day of summer.
Scott and Megan’s event was super classy and super chic. Lots of style and lots of smiles. Pulled together by the sophisticated Katy Roberts of Vows Weddings
Another day of sheer joy for this same sex couple at Salty’s on Alki. The reception details really showed their personalities, and the guests loved the view and the food!
Kirsten and Matt are special to me as sort of extended family. Her brother is a long time client of mine. I’m amazed at a family as kind and giving as his.
This retro inspired Mr. and Mrs. got everything they wished for in a sunset reception, held in the quaint and intimate Forest Room at the Edgewater Hotel.
Then I got to hang out with this crazy, talented, fun lovin’ group for Labor Day Weekend. Megan Keller of A Kurant Event made the most stunning bride on the planet. The event was over the top – in all the right ways! I was lucky to be second camera for the delightfully energetic Barbie Hull. I am so thankful to have been a part of this perfect celebration for my dear friend.
Serena and Matt prayed for sun – and got plenty of it! It was truly a beautiful day with plenty of chic to go around.
And again – a huge thank you to Karen Derby of Derby Photography for being the second camera. You are a true pro and a real artist.
