I like to call this wedding “a collection of photos of Shane crying every time he sees Jenna.” These two flew down from Anchorage to host a bodacious wedding at the Four Seasons Seattle, wandered downtown looking fly as hell,  threw a killer dance party, and oh yeah… Shane lost it hourly. They’re such cuties. […]

The last time we showed you a peek at Emma and Amberly, it was the Thursday before their wedding, they had just gotten off the plane from Atlanta, and we were taking tequila shots together in Georgetown. Emma hadn’t fully assembled her wedding outfit, they had a bunch of loose ends to pull together, but […]

We had a FaceTime call last night with a newly engaged couple and they asked, “have either of you ever cried at a wedding? You don’t have to say which one of you it was.” And we had to laugh because clearly we’d never met; crying is inevitable for me at nearly every wedding and […]

If you’re going to careen across the state for a wedding, dear Lord let it be for the world’s chillest couple in the mellow little town where Ray Lamontagne sold his coat. Spokane has the perfect mix of quirky hotels (Kate and Rob’s first look was in the bar at the Historic Davenport— why doesn’t […]

Angela and Lauron, how do we even freeeeaking count the ways we love you?! We met these two at RN74 for a drink to talk wedding, the drink became several, Lauron yelled at Tim for sitting on his wallet and creating an uneven pelvis (let us live our poorly postured lives guys JEEZ) and we’ve […]

We’ve shot weddings in mansions, on beaches, and the grandest of cathedrals, but if we could move into any wedding venue we’ve shot in, it’d 100% be the Fremont Foundry. Concrete abounds and unpolished industrial beauty waits around every corner. At Emma and Zach’s wedding, gone were the pastels that so often find their way […]

Wandering into the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center is stepping into the modern day ruins of old Texas: all sandy stone and climbing ivy and agave plants, a place to return to again and again as you find new paths and new plants defying the odds; growing sturdily in the Texas heat. New paths every time […]

Sarah’s first email to us felt like a little fairy godmother booped us on the head. She described Davis, her husband-to-be, as “the brightest light I think this world has ever seen,” and anyone who describes their person before they describe their wedding clearly has their priorities straight. Then she told us she was crying […]

Avid travelers will tell you that you have to take at least four forms of transportation to get anywhere interesting. Simply getting somewhere interesting is one thing, but getting 150 of your nearest and dearest to take the trek with you, now that’s outright audacious. Audacious is a fitting word too, since Ashley and Susana’s […]

“We’re just Riles and Beaz, trying to make our way in this world!” BRB, laughing forever. When you squeeze your bride at the end of the night and tell her how overflowing your heart is after a wedding day with her and the amazing crew she and her hubs surround themselves with and she responds […]

Yep, Megan’s wedding JUST hit the blog but I could never get tired of seeing her face so we’re doing a Double Megan Whammy this week. Because guess what. She had a different wedding dress last summer, when we conspired to do this sneaky shoot of her in her original bomb feathered dream.. A last minute […]

After Megan and Neil’s wedding last month, we realized we could cull our wedding advice down to two basics: 1) love each other and 2) find the light. When we showed up to these sweet thangs’ prep rooms (two different floors in a bodacious Pioneer Square loft! How genius) I half-fainted at the floor to […]

“I like the music of his voice.” Texas belle Jessi. On her way to see her French husband to be Baptiste for the first time on their wedding day. We’re in the car murmuring about all the ways that love becomes a little miracle when you had to cross oceans and geography and culture to […]

There are some little crises that being a full-time wedding photographer brings on in my darker moments. I get a little panicky that I’m not photographing refugees as often as I used to, not sharing the big personal stories that pulled me into photography in the first place. Like, is another photo of bridal flowers […]

I can’t help that I cry at everything. Usually during weddings, I’m so focused on getting the shot right that I don’t let myself sit still long enough to get weepy (not like my normal life, when I cry with equal unhinged abandon at Microsoft commercials and the old lady across the street getting her […]

For 99% of weddings we shoot, there’s this moment before the first look when Tim has one person all ready and I have the other person all primed to go tap them on the shoulder to say hi for the first time, and I whisper something like “take your time, it’s just you and your Person […]

My best friend Marlo got married to her man-piece (Tam-piece?) and let us wear Reformation bridesmaid dresses and Tim photographed the thang and we drank too much wine and cried a ton and danced with a spandex-clad bride and sang karaoke at the corner bar when it was all over and seeing my best friends happy […]

We’d never been to St Louis, but Sarah promised us we would love her city. She acts as a one-woman cheerleading section for her scrappy adopted town, and sure enough, we fell in love right alongside her. After their rad engagement shoot last January, we knew the devil was in the details for Sarah and […]

The islands off the coast of Washington are absolute perfection. Coming from Chicago, where all land is totally flat for miles, the fact that a place exists with snow-capped mountains, pristine beaches, and dense forests still blows my mind. Kari and Ben got married at the exact same place we shot our first wedding (her […]

I’m still cracking up about the last phone call we had with Maegan and Justin before we flew to the East Coast for their wedding: “what else do we need to do? We just don’t want to be the clients who do everything wrong that you tell everyone else about as a horror story.” Ok, […]

join in the fun on
