Anders and Teagan….Sahalee Wedding
When I first walked into Sahalee Golf Club, I found this dress hanging all alone on a door. I quickly moved it to this glorious mirror and began to photograph it. The dressing-room is always filled with ladies, bags, accessories, and such. I knew this was my only chance to photograph this stunning gown before the room was all a buzz with people helping Teagan into her wedding gown.
I knew Teagan would be a beautiful bride….she was full of energy and amazing to work with.
I’ve said it before, I am all about the eyes….and Teagan has huge eyes that seem to light up her entire face.
Her something old was a beautiful pin that her grandfather gave her from when he was a young man. I loved the old treasured box it was safely tucked inside.
Have you read Twilight? I chuckle each time I look at this photo wondering if Anders feels like Edward…wanting a little nibble.
It is hard to believe that we were blessed with such a beautiful winter day in Seattle. I had fully anticipated a wet, soggy, golf course that would prohibit us for taking photos on the grass. I was shocked to find the day arrive with sunshine and not even so much as a damp morning dew remaining on the grass. What a treat for December!
I love the romance that this photos evokes. It is as if nobody else in the room matters.

Holiday Cards and Announcements
I am very excited to be creating custom designed holiday cards, wedding thank you notes, engagement and birth announcements for my clients. They are all printed on heavy card stock with a beautiful pearl finish. Very classy! For years, I have taken photos for people and simply referred them to other companies to have their cards created and printed. I decided it is time for me to start giving clients a way to show their gorgeous photos off to their friends and family in an elegant presentation.
I have been waiting to post any samples because clients are still mailing them out. But I just couldn’t wait anymore. I created this beautiful one for The Gleason Family and I LOVED it so much, I had to post it. So next year, say good bye to those tacky on-line photo cards and let me create something beautiful for you with the images I’ve captured….make a splash with your photos!
I hope to have lots of samples online soon for clients to view on my website. Watch for that in January!

Matt & Lyndsey…Engagement Session
Matt & Lyndsey have been so patient with me as I know they have been super anxious to see the fun photos from their engagement session. They booked their wedding for next summer and wanted an E-session right away before the weather turned and fall was gone. I had no openings until January but squeezed them in with the understanding they would have to be patient as I work through processing all the holiday portraits and late fall/winter weddings. So thanks again Matt & Lyndsey for waiting for your photos to be ready.
I love Matt’s face in this photo. You can almost read his mind…..”I’m one lucky man!”
Toward the end of our session, Lyndsey’s feet were starting to hurt. I guess when you are a good foot shorter than your man, you need to wear heels often. Matt scooped her up like a little doll and hiked her on his back as we strolled through Pike Place Market.
Smiles and lots of cuddles flowed easily between this adorable couple. I can’t wait to work with you in August ‘09 for your wedding!
