They are the sweetest! This engagement session happened on one of those glorious January days in Washington – crisp, clear, and bright. He takes good care of her, and isn’t she just adorable? I’m looking forward to more with these two when they say “I do” this summer.

These two found one another, and the rest is history. Their story began with friendship . . . and sailboats . . . and led to love. It was a gorgeous August evening (so HOT!), and this waterfront wedding in Gig Harbor was simply beautiful. Congratulations – here’s to you!

A beautiful summer wedding – simply, shabby chic, and lots of love. The barn backdrop was perfect for this cowboy and his bride. With boots on and hay stacks in place, these two said ‘I do’ on a beautiful August day in Gig Harbor. Congrats, and yee-haw!

They did it all just right. This wedding was the perfect mix of chic / casual F-U-N! It quickly became apparent that the bride and groom have surrounded themselves with great friendships. There was a family-like ease between the attendants. The bride, of course, was so beautiful. My favorite piece of her is her calm, easy-going spirit. A great day! Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs.!

She was uncertain when she booked this session. We usually photograph the whole family . . . focusing on the their three young children, and lucky if we get a group shot with Mom and Dad in it. This time, however, Mom had other ideas. She wanted to celebrate the love she shares with her husband. She wanted portraits of the two of them. Just the two of them. I’m so glad she booked the session! Don’t we all need love photos just like these?

Yes, they are as sweet and lovely as they look. This couple is so fun to work with! They are laid back, and let me play around with ideas; which leads to fun photos. They had some great ideas of their own, too. They made this cute wooden sign for their “Save the Date” cards, and brought their “best friend” along to help pose.

The most special thing about their session, however, had to have been the location. We met at the family home in Bremerton. It’s a beautiful spot that looks directly at this beach and those beautiful mountains. Grandparents live on the property, and I thought of Grandma the whole time I edited these images. She wasn’t able to be at the session, but I hope the images find a special place in her heart.

I’m looking forward to sharing this couple’s wedding day with them this summer. It was a delight to work with them!
