I love when I get the chance to do a photo shoot in the San Francisco Bay Area. It makes my heart happy. It was such a beautiful winter day. That gorgeous California sun was shining and it wasn't too cold. The fog had been hanging around all morning and we were a little nervous the sun wouldn't come out but we lucked out! For the first time I got to do an engagement session at the Palace of Fine Arts and that place is magical. To end the session we drove over to Baker Beach for the perfect view of the the Golden Gate Bridge. It could not have been more perfect! I can't wait to photograph Vanessa and Nick's wedding in June.

Cullen and Bobbie's engagement session quickly convinced me that all engagement sessions need to start in a wine bar! We met at Portalis in Ballard - Cullen and Bobbie's favorite spot to share a bottle of champagne. It. Was. Amazing. I kind of want to head over there myself to enjoy an evening sipping wine in Ballard. To end the night we went up to Kerry Park to take some classic photos with the Seattle skyline. We also spent some time daydreaming of living in the Queen Anne neighborhood. Shockingly, this was my first engagement session at Kerry Park and I am in love. We had fun chatting while we waited for the sun to set and the city lights to start sparkling - definitely worth the wait!

Look at this beautiful family I got to spend an evening with! Aren't they gorgeous?? I love doing extended family shoots and this family especially was so much fun to work with. We met at the beautiful Parsons Gardens on Queen Anne Hill in Seattle. The light was perfect! Here is their sneak peak!

I do not know if I can put into words how much I love this wedding. From the cute open air chapel to the flowers to their dog being there - it just does not get better. Claire and Travis were married at Camp Huston in Gold Bar, WA. Claire grew up going to this camp and was a counselor there. The ceremony was held in a beautiful open air chapel surrounded by evergreens. Claire was driven down to the chapel by her dad in a beautiful old car. Claire and Travis' dog, Porter, was at the wedding and was even included in the family photos! Can we talk about how stunning the dresses were? Claire's lace dress looked amazing on her and the bridesmaids all chose their own dresses which came together so well. I had a smile on my face the entire time I edited this wedding because it was full of so much love.
