2017 has come to an end.  While there were so many highs in my photography life, there were plenty of lows in my personal life. I lost a loved one at the beginning of 2017, my Granny.  As hard as I tried, I could not bounce back to my work flow or being consistently active on social media. I shot BEAUTIFUL weddings this year full of Love, Devotion, Incredible Moments and Details and wanted to share them with the world! But, my embarrassment on the length of time it took to finish them outweighed my excitement to share them. I am so lucky to have my amazing boyfriend (and Second Photographer), Jesse and my best friend, Jessie, to encourage me and push me to be strong and continue in the business I love. I also could not have gotten through this year without the love and support from my parents and my future mother-in-law, Esther. Thank you 2017, for helping me grow personally and professionally. I met some amazing couples this past year and captured shots that took my breath away. I am so incredibly honored that they chose me to capture their moments and love.  I look forward  to what 2018 will bring and I’m grateful for this breath of fresh air!

Christopher could not hold back his emotions as Iris walked towards him with her mother in hand. They came home to California to share their wedding day with their loved ones surrounded by greenery. The venue was reminiscent of their new home in Washington. As the night drew near, their family held onto them just a little bit tighter since they knew that their newlyweds would be returning to their home state.
