joe and laura's engagement

joe and laura are serious animal lovers, so i was really excited to photograph them with all of their cats and dogs a couple weekends ago. they are adorable together, and the dogs were great too! i am looking forward to shooting their wedding on the beach for katie jervis photography in a couple months- it's sure to be gorgeous.


christina and jason are engaged!

it was so nice to hang out with jason and christina on saturday, and so lucky that we got a break in the rain for their engagement session! we met up at edgefield, and had a great time wandering the grounds, and even taking a break in the middle of the shoot for a pint of mcmennamin's beer! these two are so cute together, and i am really looking forward to shooting their wedding in august.


joshua tree

perhaps it's because we here in the northwest have just endured six months of soggy weather, but lately, i have had a huge urge to be out in the desert. my dreams of arid soil and cacti were realized when i made the trek from LA to joshua tree national park last week. my mom (who also loves to snap photos!) and i had a blast exploring the boulder formations, glimpsing a coyote, and getting to know the oddly beautiful tree for which the park is named.
