Today is Abby + Bryce’s wedding day! I couldn’t be more excited. I figured it’s as good a time as ever to share their engagement photos! I actually kind of love this because going through their photos made me every more excited for today. We actually took a little trip down to their venue for their photos. I liked this for a couple of reasons- I got to spend car time with them (for those who follow me on IG, you know how much I value my car chats- this is where I get to know my people). We also stopped for Dutch Bros, Abby introduced me to Americano’s, I’ve never turned back since that day. Lastly, I got to see their venue! Which was so fun. Walking around with them, listening to them dream about their day and what was going to be where, and how it was going to be- was so special. I CAN NOT WAIT to see it in action today. Cheers to Abby + Bryce, today is going to be a REALLY FREAKING GOOD DAY.
I've known of Natalia for a few years now through mutual friends, she's an amazing make up artist and kindhearted human. When she reached out to me about her engagement photos, she mentioned wanting hawaiian vibes as they are getting married in Hawaii this upcoming summer. The entire week before their session, and entire week after this session is PNW poured all day every day. You won't find many palm trees in our neck of the woods, sure theres some beaches but with the weather we decided to keep it local and see how it went. We totally beat the rain this morning, grabbed a cup of coffee, and escaped to a local river spot (not exactly tropical BUT almost as close as you get to it where we live!) These two are total babes and despite telling me they were going to have no idea what they were doing in front of the camera, I think they totally nailed it. I don't mean to play favorites, but whenever a couple brings their dog along- I melt. Scroll down and you'll meet their pup, Dirk. See Dirk is an old man, and he wore his finest old man hawaiian shirt for this occasion. Dirk was a trooper, with his little legs he climbed over rocks twice his size and was always down to do whatever I asked of him for the photo. These three were so much fun to hang out with and I can't thank them enough for letting me capture them!
GUYS. I cant. I just CAN NOT. These two are all I ever want in a couple. Completely playful but also incredibly okay with snuggling for hours on end. Meet Johnna and Wade, they're two photographers based out of Arkansas (and they're super good so also be sure to check them out) They're parents to two adorable tiny humans (yeah I know, like the hottest parents ever) and they love The Office, and traveling! Which I'm really happy about because it brought them to the PNW where we got to spend an afternoon in some Leavenworth snow! Thankful for their energy they shared with me, their freaking steamy connection, and beautiful faces!
