A fourth of July wedding! I of course was excited to photograph this couple because I loved working with them on their engagement pictures. I knew photographing on the 4th of July would be exciting, especially since I brought some sparklers to incorporate into the pictures!
I love the beautiful sanctuary at St. Patrick’s Church in Fremont. Great lighting for their first kiss after they walked down the aisle.
And I have to share pictures of their flower girl. She’s so adorable!
And at last, here’s the images we took with the sparklers! It was dusk and getting dark so I pulled them out of the reception for a few minutes to capture this image. I love the connection you see between Erin and Chris. They look so happy and relaxed. Perfect ending to a beautiful day.

Tatum and Jeremy had a lovely wedding at A View Fontenelle Hills. The weather was perfect, the bride was stunningly beautiful, and it was an awesome day. I was excited to shoot at this new venue in Bellevue. They have some great areas to utilize when shooting the wedding day images.
Here are some of my favorites:
Look at the light in Tatum’s eyes while she was getting ready. The anticipation from seeing Jeremy was shining through.
I had Megan from Image Society Photography helping me second shoot that day. I was so grateful for her help and she’s a lot of fun to shoot with. It was her idea to have the bridesmaids dip their toes in the pool to cool off. I love the juxtaposition of the pink dresses with the blue water.
She also helped set up the shot below. Helping these good looking guys strut their stuff in their suits. I’m loving the pink vests that match the color scheme of the wedding.
Here’s a little glance at some of the details that made the day. Flowers were by Tiffany’s Floral Creations in Bellevue. They turned out beautiful.
Thanks again Megan for helping me capture these details with your awesome macro lens!
That last shot is definitely my favorite. It was completely candid and magically emotional. That look in his eyes is so deep and I know Tatum feels lucky to be on the receiving end of it.
Congratulations to you both! Thanks again for having Megan and I there on your special day.

I was so glad to finally get to photograph “T”. Mom and I had rescheduled due to rain but finally found a morning that worked. I can’t decide what I like best about this little guy, his gorgeous baby blues, his squishy little cheeks, or how his smile is slightly mischievous yet entirely wholesome. No wait, I like how his blonde hair gets all spikey in the wind. Yep, that’s my favorite. Check it out below:
I love his reaction in the image above. Daddy arrived a little after we started and “T” pointed and grinned as soon as he got out of the car.
Mom and Dad are the perfect props for a one year old. They’re guaranteed to generate great smiles.
Mom told me “T” just learned how to say ball so I made sure to bring one with me to the shoot. His little voice was so cute when we played.
The last image is his reaction to sand for the first time. He really liked it and kept digging his hands in for more. Glad I could be there to photograph his reaction.
Thanks to Mom and Dad for meeting me that morning. I know it was a little early but it was well worth it. I’m thrilled with the images we captured.

Let me start of this next post by saying how much I loved the colors Kim chose to decorate her wedding day. Purple has always been a favorite of mine as most of my close friends know. I love the soft green she choose to accent with this royal shade of purple. Look at how all the details fit so well together! Seriously, if I were to get married again this would definitely be my color scheme.
The backdrop for Kim and Adam’s wedding was the Fontenelle Nature Association. Such a beautiful, organic themed backdrop for this wedding. I love the favors shown above with their wedding rings. Handmade paper hearts with seeds inside that bloom into wildflowers when planted. Like the website states, “A wonderful symbol of love that grows and blossoms.” Kim put so much thought and effort into organizing this wedding and it showed beautifully.
One of my favorite images from the day is below. Kim’s relationship with her parents is such a special one so I was very happy to capture the shot of dad putting a sixpence in her shoe. Since I am so close to my own Dad I always strive to capture that bond between father and daughter. At times it’s very emotional but fueled by love and that is such a neat thing to witness.
Fontenelle’s green backdrop for the ceremony was lush and vibrant. It was great to be photographing outdoors and we were so happy it didn’t rain!
This wedding party was wonderful to work with. Wanted to share the image we took after we got the serious ones out of the way. Again, lovin’ the color scheme with the girl’s dresses and the guy’s vests.
And now on to the main event . . . the bride and groom couple pictures. These are my all-time favorite shots of the day to take. Thank you both for being so cooperative even though it was quite muggy out. You both looked fabulous!
By now I assume you’re back from your honeymoon. Hope you time away was relaxing and fun! Thanks for having me share in your wedding day. I loved meeting and getting to know your family. The hugs you and your parents gave me when I said goodnight were priceless!
