aimee + kumu

aimee and kumu had a beautiful wedding in hawaii (which sadly i didn't attend- i could use a trip to hawaii!) but lucky for me, i got to steal them away for a bridal/groomal session in seattle! i think they are the most GORGEOUS couple and i am obsessed with aimee's look and style. it is such a dream to work with people who share my vision and taste! congrats aimee and kumu and good luck on your new hawaiian life together (oh yea, they get to LIVE there!).

pearly whites

This is the second shoot we did for Dr. Matt Snyder's dental office. Isn't McKayleigh beautiful? Dr. Snyder is the man responsible for that gorgeous smile, he did her veneers ! Also, I have to let you know that Matt is now our family dentist, and we LOOOOOOVE him! I hate going to the dentist and not only is he amazing at his job and up on all the latest dental technology stuff, but he is really laid back and easy to talk to. I love that!

love the light on her face here. it makes me happy!

m + m were going for a more classic outdoor look for their off site shoot, lucky for us we found this little slice of heaven right near the reception at pickering barn ...

brace yourselves, this shoot seriously gave me chills. i was practically in tears editing these! beautiful location, beautiful light, and the sweetest love that is unique to a wedding day. so romantic! you can just tell that they truly ADORE eachother, the feelings in the pictures are so genuine.
