A winner of a first look from the weekend!
Sarah and Alex enjoyed every minute of their April wedding day, so despite a little chill in the air, this photographer took full advantage of the sun! I especially loved the couple’s color choices of plum and gold – and I would say there was even a good dose of Pantone’s color of the year – radiant orchid – in the bride and bridesmaids’ bouquets. The combination of peonies, orchids and freesia smelled incredible. Truly a perfect start to a beautiful wedding season! Now that I’m based in Bellingham, WA, I’ll be back and forth between Seattle, Chicago and New York shooting weddings at least once a month through the end of the year. And I can’t wait to see all of the gorgeousness my clients have planned!

The month of May was full of engagement sessions! As wedding season ramps up, it makes me so happy to create engagement photos in the spring months. Amy and Alex are getting married outside of the city in just a few short weeks, so we took the to west loop to get some more city-themed photos. I just love these two!
I’ve been doing a lot of flying between Seattle and Chicago in the past two months, and it’s been so nice to see the seasons change from winter to spring in a different way in each location. Chicago might be about four weeks behind Seattle when spring actually starts, but it sure catches up fast. These photos, taken just a couple weeks ago, feel so warm and lovely. It was a joy to shoot Sara and Ilya’s engagement photos amidst the bright spring greens as well as the cool tones of the waterfront. I can’t wait for their wedding in September!
