I have had the honor of photographing lots of awesome families this fall, and I’m excited to finally start blogging those sessions. As you may know I mainly photograph families twice a year during March and October & November as I’m usually photographing weddings and engagements throughout the rest of the year. So I do enjoy getting to see familiar faces each year and meet some new ones!
Meet the Atienza Family! Seriously such a sweet family! We had originally planned for a more park setting on the water in Bellevue, Wa but due the weather being pretty nasty in the forecast we decided it may be a bit cold on the water for sweet Charlotte, their beautiful 1 1/2 year old. We ended up meeting at the Seattle Library central which has some stunning architecture and I found a great area down 5th as well. The day as you will see, turned out to be gorgeous and sunny and worked out great!

I couldn’t be more excited for my dear friend Christy from Studio Christy, She is expecting twins in January! Its always a bit nerve racking when I get to photograph another photographer but I also feel totally honored to have the opportunity to do this for them. I had a great time photographing this beautiful time in their lives! Walking amongst big beautiful oak trees up on the hills in West Linn, it was a perfect setting for this soon to be family of 5!
Love you guys!

Where do I even start with these two? There’s just to many wonderful things to say about Liza & Jonathan, truly. Let me give you a little back story on how we met, I had the privilege of meeting Liza at the Tour de Brides show last year and they actually won our drawing for an Engagement session. When we met up at Horse Trail Falls in the rain and cold CLICK HERE if you missed) and it was A-mazing! They are the warmest couple I know and you can see the love shine through them instantly. They eventually booked their wedding because it was like sparks between us all Truly we enjoyed our time together and lets just say it was meant to be! They had a super fun fall wedding at the Mcmenamins Edgefield in Troutdale, OR. Loved all their little added touches to their day such as the subtle purple hair Liza had done (purple was her color!) and the super hero socks their groom and his groomsmen wore. They had games as centerpieces that they shopped for over the months and hand picked them selves. Their ceremony music was SO PERFECT for them, theme songs such as the Star Trek theme song, and so on… again it was perfect and who they are as a couple.
A lot of laughter, a whole lot of joy and I was honored to be a part of it!

Oh my this is a long one, but I promise you it’s completely worth it! Petya & Kevin are truly one of those couples that lights up any room as they walk in, and when they do, you just want to run up to them and give them a big hug. They were married at Kevin’s family farm, and their ceremony was underneath their pear orchard which I loved! Both families were so inviting and made me feel like I was a family member and I couldn’t have been more appreciative of that. I loved that they wanted to be married at their families farm as did Kevin’s siblings, how lucky are they! their first dance was so fun to watch, they were both taking lessons for a choreographed dance and they pulled it off beautifully! Their cake topper was Kevin’s parents cake topper when they were married, and they incorporated Petya’s Bulgarian heritage into their day such as hanging the Bulgarian flag and the Bulgarian wedding traditional ceremony and eating honey and breaking bread. Whoever gets the bigger piece of bread once broke is the one who will wear the pants in the marriage! LOL!
I loved Petya & Kevin’s mix of formal and country chic, soft pinks and creams and bold black. Touches of country and elegance throughout and all at the groom’s family home. Petya & Kevin, love you both!

Heather & Todd’s beautiful Private Estate Wedding was simply perfect! It begins with truly the most loving couple and deserving of one another. They chose to get married at a close friends home and with their closest friends and family by their side. They added sweet and simply elements throughout such as photos from their engagement portraits as well as photos from their parents wedding. Touches of lace, babies breath and a gorgeous archway for their ceremony of birch wood and drapery. It fit them to a tee and from their beaming smiles throughout the day, I would say this wedding was a complete success.
Heather & Todd, It was such a pleasure getting to know you both and following your love story! Cheers to you both! XOXO
Heather is proficient in air guitar and this is another reason to love her!
I love these simple yet elegant babies breath bouquets
Ok Dad this is it…
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Roger Moore’s style, he moves around when he is talking and you get photos of the the couple without him in everyone of them, especially during the kiss, perfect!
They couldn’t be happier to finally say I do!
Loved their sweet Ombre cake from Sugar Cubed Cake Creations
The toasts given by her matron of honor and best man were truly sweet and of course hilarious!
Having a kids table just for them with arts and crafts and games makes for a great way to entertain them during a wedding celebration.
