This was one of those weddings that I could have laughed and cried along with the guests. There was so much emotion behind everything and it was wonderful to be able to capture it.

Jill and Steve actually live overseas in Australia.  Jill grew up here in the Northwest, but has spent the better part of her adult life in Australia.  She of course met the man of her dreams over there and decided to come back “home” to have her wedding at her father’s house out in Castle Rock.  Steve is Scottish, so he wanted to make sure that part of his heritage was a part of the wedding.  So how’s that for confusing?! Wedding in Castle Rock, couple from Australia, but it’s a Scottish wedding!!

Their two young boys were a big part of their day and served as the best man and ring bearer. I couldn’t get over how cute both of them were. They both stole my heart.

Thank you a million times over for letting me be a part of your day. Your family is one of the nicest families I’ve had the pleasure of working with.

Congrats on your marriage!!!




kiggensweddingblog11See how cute these little guys are!!! Oh my goodness!!!

kiggensweddingblog9Jill and Steve got matching tattoos to symbolize the tree of life. The tattoo artist is actually a friend of mine since childhood and he was at the wedding as well!

kiggensweddngblog10The beautiful family.


Their ceremony was absolute perfection. They bound their hands together and also exchanged rings.


You can totally see the love between these two. They are perfectly suited for each other.

kigggensweddingblog15This father and daughter dance had me in tears. She lives far away from her dad and I can’t even imagine living so far away from my dad for so long.

kiggiensblog16so this middle one totally makes me laugh. I posed them for a nice serious moment and this is what happens. Of course, it’s totally something my husband would do. I love the sense of humor these two had.

kiggensweddingblog12and yes, there are no words for this one 😉


They had this tree of life at their guest signing table and it was just perfect to put their rings on!!

kiggensweddingblog2And a special thanks to my second shooter Elena who totally rocks my socks off. Thank you for being a great friend and for being an awesome photog as well!!

Our favourite memories are between pictures, laughing and whispering and being there in the moment together. Many thanks.
