I was fortunate enough to be able to photograph my friend Ellie last month as well as the little girl who was still hiding in her belly. We weren’t sure if the weather was going to hold out, but it turned out to be a beautiful morning. I took the long drive out to Snohomish to meet her at her place by Lake Bosworth and it was well worth it. What a beautiful drive! Maternity shoots always feel a little awkward, but it was nice to be silly with an old friend. I can’t wait to be there to welcome this little one into the world!


Back on February 9th (a day after 3 nights of my own insomnia) I met Rachel & Matt over in Kirkland at Heritage Park for some engagement photos.

I had never shot there before and was a little worried because of my lack of sleep. Once we got going though, Rachel’s upbeat personality must have rubbed off on me and we got some great images! Matt especially, was such a trooper! Engagement photos are always so silly to guys and he persevered without much fuss.

Their wedding is in May and by all accounts will be one kick-ass party! Rachel is one of the most fun, energetic brides I’ve met this year and I can’t WAIT for their wedding. Although it’s a stock photo, I had to include the photo Rachel sent me of their wedding cake topper. How cool are these two?!

    Rachel and Matt - You are amazing. You captured everything that we’re about, and we had FUN!!! Even Matt will agree! You’d never know that it had been a snowy morning, or that he was totally uncomfortable giving his future bride a big smooch in the city that he works in…:)

    You’re amazing! We can’t wait to see the Soper Style shine through at the wedding!!!!!ReplyCancel
