Festive 415 Westlake Wedding

If you know me (or have spent any time at all looking at my photography) you know that I love color! Happy, bright, vibrant color. It makes me smile and instantly elicits joy and delight. So knowing this, you will quickly be able to see the Kai and René’s festive 415 Westlake wedding was definitely one of my very favorites of the Summer. I simply cannot think of any other wedding in recent memory that was as bold and vivid as their wonderful party. Laughter, tears, amazing food, even more amazing dancing, every element came together to elaborately showcase the love these two have for each other, their children, their families and friends. It was quite simply a day to remember. I have so much love for this couple and their fantastic families. Kai and René, thank you so much for sharing your wonderful celebration with us and big thank for Kai’s sister, Ligaya, for bringing us together! xx, Amy

Woodland Meadow Farms Wedding

Gorgeous, beautiful, fun, sweet, charming, inspiring, delightful, magical, heartwarming, marvelous, glorious…there are just simply not enough wonderful words in the dictionary to describe Emily and Mikaila’s absolutely lovely Woodland Meadow Farms wedding.  On a stunning July day in Snohomish, these two lovelies threw an amazing party for all of their closest friends and family and stood together to proclaim their love. Usually in these wedding posts I recall many of the cool elements of the day, like the fact that both brides wore their mother’s wedding dresses or how rad their Air Jordan “reception” shoes were, however today I have a bit of a deeper message. I say all the time how lucky I am to do what I do; having the honor of documenting love in all of it’s many forms, especially in this current political climate, is an absolutely wondrous thing that I do not take for granted. Even when the world seems bat-shit crazy, I have the privilege of a job that not only allows me, but in fact requires me, to witness love and joy and happiness like this on a weekly basis. I cannot overstate how blessed that makes me feel.  Em and Mikaila, united you are a paragon. You are exactly what this world needs and what everyone hopes to find- perfection in the imperfect. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your love and faith in asking us to be part of your wedding day. xx, Amy

Marymoor Park Maternity Session

You know my motto- dogs make everything better! Last night I had the joy of meeting Sarah and Tyler with their adorable pup, Bernadette, around sunset for a lovely Marymoor Park maternity session. This trio was so fun to photograph and I’m super excited to have the opportunity to watch their little family grow. Tyler and Sarah are going to be the best parents and no doubt Bernadette is going to be an amazing big sister! xx, Amy

On Sunday I had a the pleasure of a lovely morning coffee date followed by a bit of silliness with these two gentlemen. Jeff and Tyler’s Madison Park engagement session was such a delight. These guys are so adorable together, I can’t wait to see all the fun they have in store for their wedding at Golden Gardens this Fall. xx, Amy

Januik winery weddingI’ve shot over a dozen Januik Winery weddings, and while every one is fantastically unique for each couple, they all have one thing in common: this venue, their wine and their food are amazing no matter the weather or the season. Joe and Jaime’s wedding was no different and we were gifted with all the sunshine!!! I love Jaime’s classically flawless gown and her choice of white and green bouquets from Fena Flowers, which were at the same time creative, yet clean. Their awesome planner, Channy, made sure everyone and everything was on task and perfect as the day rolled into evening. Danny with WaSound got the party started and then were still all on the dance floor when we left late in the night. Jaime and Joe were such a joy to photograph and, along with their wedding party, were THE best smilers. <3  Congratulations to this wonderful couple on an absolutely stupendous wedding day. xx, Amy
