the big four-oh!

greg and i traveled to southern california last weekend to be a part of my parents' big 40th anniversary/retirement party. it was a great time, and the dance floor at their party was wilder than most of the weddings that i photograph! congratulations mom and dad!


erica & conan!

i loved being a part of this couple's big day! erica and conan are super fun and totally laid back, and they are high school sweethearts who have been dating for more than a decade- how cute is that?! they got married in a beautiful ceremony at a hotel on the columbia river in portland on march 22. the reception turned into quite the dance party (which was a blast to photograph!) and it was great to see these two thoroughly enjoy their night. congratulations erica and conan!!!

annie & eric's gorgeous day

i have been looking forward to annie and eric's wedding at pravda studios in seattle for quite awhile, and it did not disappoint! it was a beautiful, sunny spring day, and the urban setting was to die for! annie did an amazing job planning this wedding- the venue was modern and full of natural light, the green lanterns and other details were lovely, her dress was simple and elegant, even the kids at this wedding were well taken care of- there was a well stocked table of goodies and activities just for them!
congratulations you two, i really enjoyed being a part of your day!
