Katlyne & Erik: Gasworks Park E-Session

Meet Katlyne & Erik, a young couple very much in love--both with each other and with God. Their passion for each other and their faith is evident to everyone who meets them, and a source of true inspiration to Airika & I. We had so much fun tromping around in the leaves at Gasworks Park with these two. They love to laugh, and half the time, they were so caught up in each other that I think they completely forgot we were there! Katlyne & Erik, thank you for your authenticity and for being so much fun to work with. We can't wait for your wedding at Hidden Meadows in April!

Neil & Kelly's Engagement Session

From our very first meeting, we knew that working with Neil & Kelly was going to be an absolute joy. They were quiet, kind, and wore their love and adoration for each other on their sleeves. They were referred by a long line of wonderful people including the mother of two past brides, Miranda & Mackenzie. In fact, most of our first meeting was spent laughing about how many of our friends knew each other!

For their engagement session, we actually ended up shooting right here in beautiful Redmond, WA.  If you don't already know, Gerald and I live in Redmond (home to Microsoft and Nintendo), yet we have never photographed an engagement session here. We had a great time exploring our own backyard, and we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful fall day. Everywhere we turned, the trees were bursting with color! We hope that you enjoy the warmth of fall in Redmond and the sweet love that these two share. Neil & Kelly, we can't wait to capture your wedding day this April!

Sarah and Derek's Queen Anne Engagement Session

Sarah and Derek decided to give us a little tour of Queen Anne for their engagement session. It's a special place for them--much of their life together has been spent here. Their houses are only a few blocks apart up on the hill and whenever they have free time, this is where they tend to spend it; walking the streets, hanging out at the local coffee shops (like Bustle), and finding incredible food and wine in their neighborhood. This is their home, but like Airika and I, they love to travel and see the world. They may not live on Queen Anne forever, but no matter where their journey together takes them, they will always have these photos to remember it by.

Meet Elsa

Meet Elsa. She is the newest addition to Kelly & Pat's family, one of our 2008 wedding couples who are now dear friends. When Kelly & Pat told us that they were expecting, we were so excited for them! We knew that we just had to take her newborn photos--I mean how could we not? Look at their cute little girl!

We had a wonderful afternoon hanging out with little Elsa and photographing her in her new world. Kelly & Pat, it's been such a privilege for us to document the beginning of your journey into marriage, and now parenthood as well! Thank you for your friendship and for trusting us with your family's memories.

Rebekah & Jonathan: Harvest Wedding

Fall may very well be my favorite time of year. It’s the time for harvest and celebration, family gatherings and great food, accented by bright colors and crisp, cool air. As Rebekah and Jonathan’s harvest wedding at Hidden Meadows drew closer, Airika & I grew even more excited about capturing the richness of emotion and detail that was sure to present itself at their wedding.

The first look.

After their first look, we headed out to Stocker Farms to explore their corn maze (They gave us a free tour!)

Erin Lindeman did an incredible job with the event decor. The details were absolutely amazing!

Such a beautiful location... not to mention that the light is perfect at this time of day!

Let the dancing begin!

One last goodbye...

Congratulations Rebekah and Jonathan! Be sure to check back next week for your slideshow!
