A little while ago I was contacted by Ryan's sister, saying that her brother was looking to propose to his then girlfriend, and that he wanted a photographer to capture it. Soon after I heard from Ryan and he told me about how he wanted to do a couples session and pop the question in the middle of the session. Originally we were going to go to Lake Tapps, but found it to be too crowded and instead went to Roegner Park in Auburn Washington. Roegner Park was just as beautiful and far less crowded. The evening was warm and wonderful for this surprise proposal session! They were such an adorable couple to work with! And very goofy! Oh, and that ring! Gorgeous!!!
I had so much fun working with Amanda and Jesse on their engagement session! They were such a cute and fun couple. We meet up at Wright Park in Tacoma, for the first half of their engagement session. For the second half we went to the Tacoma Glass Museum. They had never been there before, and it was so awesome seeing their reactions to the different glass creations on the bridge. Amanda had brought along one of her favorite books, one of Dr. Suess' books called "Oh, the Place You'll Go" and we incorporated it into their shoot.
In August I meet up with Alaina and Toni. I meet Alaina back in March of this year when I started my new job cleaning rooms. Alaina had mentioned doing a shoot with her and her husband. This year they celebrated their 5 year anniversary on October 31st! They were so much fun to work with on the sunny warm day! Wish them many many more anniversary's.
Roughly about a year and 4 months ago I had the amazing opportunity to work with Krystal and her fiancé (now Husband) when they got married! 10 months ago she announced she was expecting. Not long after she booked a maternity session! It was warm and beautiful out when I meet up with Krystal for this session! Krystal was amazing to work with and glowed during the entire session! She was a gorgeous mama to be! She now has a beautiful baby boy!
On a warm summer day I meet up with Mackenzie and her mother in scenic downtown Gig Harbor. Mackenzie graduated this past year from high school and is going on to continue her education. She was so much fun to work with! :)
The year 2014 has been an interesting one! I have learned, loved and been grateful for photography. I have done several engagements, 8 weddings, 2 seniors, 3 children shoots, a birthday party, and so much more. It has been and amazing year, and I really look forward to this coming year. I thank all of those who hired me and allowed me to be their photographer, it was truly an honor to work with you. I look forward to meeting and working with couples this coming year, and help creating the memories that they will have forever. If it weren't for you, I wouldn't be here. I feel as though I have come far over the past year, and I'm hoping to go even further this coming year. This is what I love doing! It is the most amazing thing to do in the world! Thank you!!! :)
Back in August I had the opportunity to work with this sweet young lady on a nice warm evening, at point defiance park! She is cute and rambunctious. She loves to run around, twirl like a ballerina, and to blow fairy dust :)
I meet with Kendra and Anthony twice before the wedding. Once for their Engagement pictures, and once to go over paperwork, it was easily seen the amount of love that they have for each other.
There couldn't have been a more perfect day for Kendra and Anthony's wedding. It was warm, sunny and beautiful. The love that Kendra and Anthony had for each other was so strong, and you could feel it when you walked into the chapel. The church was filled with friends and family that loved Kendra and Anthony, waiting to see the joyous union between these two people. There was a beautiful video that Anthony made for Kendra that was seen by family/guests before the ceremony. Beautiful vows, sand ceremony, and the first kiss as husband and wife.
The ceremony was followed by pictures at a golf course and a beautiful reception! Oh, and I almost forgot to mention their AWESOME colors that totally worked together. Orange. Green. And Fuchsia!
