In any given week I’m photographing everything from newborns, commercial work, engagements, families, to weddings. There’s never a dull moment around here, that’s for sure. Often times I don’t feel like I have a distinct style since my work varies so much. I’ve found over the years that I don’t like doing the same exact thing over and over so every session I like to create something entirely new for each client. My constant evolving keeps me challenged and I love my job more and more every day.

 

This is the quote I have as the background on my computer:

 

“Be daring, be different, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers…“

 -Cecil Beaton

 

 

Here’s some recent favorites I’ve posted on Facebook but haven’t taken the time to post yet. I hope you enjoy!!

 

 

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year!!!!

The studio is closed to spend time with my beautiful family. We will reopen January 7th and will be back in full swing. I have so many beautiful weddings and photos to post, I can’t wait for you to see what I’ve been up to the last couple of months.

 

Until then…

 

 

Once again I’ve found myself blessed beyond words with my amazing clients. This fall was once again my busiest EVER!!! I’m now completely booked for 2012 and am accepting sessions for Jan/Feb/March of 2013. I already have more than a dozen weddings lined up for next summer as well. 2013 looks to be even more incredible than 2012!!!

So thank you all from the bottom of my heart for keeping me so busy. I wish I had more time to post all the lovely images that I’ve been creating lately.

Here’s some of my favorites…..

 

 

Justin and Lindsey got married at the Lewis River Golf course just two short months ago. Everything about their wedding was perfect and flawless. Lewis River Golf course is one of my absolute favorite venues. It’s so incredibly beautiful and the staff is wonderful.

I got all emotional during the ceremony when Justin gave a special ring to his new daughter. It’s moments like these that make me cry behind the camera.

I’m so incredibly thankful I got to be a part of their special day. And since writing isn’t my specialty, here’s the beautiful photos…..

 

 

On June 30th, 2012, Hilary and Barry wed at Emmanuel Lutheran Church here in Longview, WA. Their ceremony was filled with a lot of love and laughter. Even the officiant cried. It was the sweetest ceremony I have seen in a very long time. Their reception was at The Monticello Hotel (one of my absolute favorite places here in town!!!).

Hilary and Barry were the couple from this engagement session. During that fun session, I knew we’d be great friends and their wedding day would be asbolutely perfect. God was awesome and held off the rain when we were doing the formal photos. You would never know looking at the photos that it was a 50% chance of rain that day.

I’m so incredibly blessed to have such amazing clients who trust me with their very important day. Thank you SOOOOO much Hilary and Barry for trusting me with your memories. I hope you enjoy these photos for many generations to come.

 

Super huge thanks to Amanda Wilson for shooting with me. Love ya girl!!
