Karma Vinyards Wedding Amelia Soper PhotographyI honestly don’t know where to begin with this absolutely beautiful wedding. I’ll start by saying that every wedding is lovely in its own way; every couple is unique and everyone’s idea of the “perfect wedding” differs greatly. Some of my favorite couples didn’t care much for the pretty details of the wedding, they were more than happy just to be marrying the one who makes them the happiest in front of all of their favorite people. That being said, I’d totally be lying if I didn’t say how much I absolutely love those yummy little details, and this wedding right here? Oh it was chock full of all kinds of pretty! Katie and Josh’s rustic Karma Vineyards wedding was perfection. The table greenery, lemons, and vines gave it the unmistakable feel of the Italian countryside. Guests were transported up to the ceremony site, overlooking Lake Chelan, and then back down to the reception, by the most adorable little trolley. After some great toasts, some hysterical and some tearful, and a very tasty dinner, everyone headed inside to the affectionately-named “Cave” for dancing and cake.  I have to say, my very favorite part of the day had to be Josh’s dance with his mother, which started slow and quickly morphed into an amazing choreographed flash mob dancing to Flo Rida’s Cake. And ya’ll know how much I love Flo Rida. It was delightfully unforgettable. I cannot say enough about this wedding, this wonderful couple, and all of their family and guests. The entire day was filled with joy and love and just the right amount of shenanigans. Katie and Josh, your wedding day is most definitely right near the top of my all-time favorites and I am so grateful you chose to spend your day with me. xx, Amy

Island Wedding at Friday Harbor House

Destination weddings are always fun, especially when I get to take a ferry to get there rather than standing in an airport security line. Ruth and Byron were married at Friday Harbor House in the San Juan Islands and I can’t imagine them having a more lovely day; the weather was beautiful, the view amazing, and the people all so incredibly lovely.  I especially loved how laid back and stress-free the day was. Byron and Ruth (and of course their pup, Norman) got ready together (which is always so sweet) and took their time enjoying the walk through town while we casually shot their portraits. The ceremony was short and sweet and dinner was amazing. Note: If you ever find yourself at Friday Harbor House, do yourself a favor and order the brussel sprouts. They are MAGICAL. I don’t even like brussel sprouts and this dish made me a convert- I learned the trick: Bacon jam. A hysterical slideshow hosted by Ruth’s parents concluded the formal reception. From there, the rest of the wedding evening was spent in town drinking and dancing the night away with all their friends and family at the local bar.  Thank you so much to Ruth and Byron and their wonderful families for creating such a beautiful celebration for everyone to enjoy. xx, Amy

Bonney Lake Newborn Session

This past weekend I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing this darling little human and his family (including his adorable furry big brother, Gunner). I shot Derek and Shannon’s wedding in 2015 and was thrilled to be able to catch up and see how their family has grown over the past two years.  Welcome to the world little Owen! xx, Amy

Wedding at Mountain Spring Lodge

Chelsea and Derek’s wedding occurred on another one of those Spring days where the weather threatens all day only to chicken out at the last moment and let all the beauty through. Almost entirely DIY, this wedding was basically a love letter to the couple; from Chelsea’s hair and makeup to the flowers, music and officiant, all of their friends and family came together to create this wonderful day for them. Their dog, Zoe, was even the official “vid-dog-grapher”. And when the wedding ends with a piñata, you know it was a great day.  Big thanks to these two fun loving and heart-warming people and all of their friends and family that made this day possible. I can’t think of a better reason for a trip to Leavenworth.  🙂 xx, Amy
