Carl and Eliza celebrated their marriage at the Lake Wilderness Lodge — a beautiful, unpretentious venue nestled within an arboretum in Maple Valley. I love how they centered their wedding around their own family, with their adorable son Julian as an integral part of the sacred and the fun. Congratulations and thank you so much for inviting me to share your day!
Blessings on you and your family.
James’ and Cynthia’s wedding on Chuckanut Mountain was a beautiful picture of their love for the forest, their community, and each other. I appreciated how the whole day told their story of simple faith, healing, and a new life together. Congratulations and thank you for sharing your wedding with me!
On Chuckanut Mountain at a private residence, May 12, 2012

Wedding Coordinated by Shelly Knebel
The Olympic Peninsula is one of the most amazing places on our planet. It’s great on sunny summer days, but it is fiercest and wildest in the winter. During our pacific northwest snowmageddon, I went camping with some brave souls who were crazy enough to face the weekend in wind, waves, flood warnings, falling trees, ice, rain, sea foam, and snow.
The first few pictures are from Rialto Beach, and the last few are from First Beach a few minutes drive away.

Mark and Erika are the sort of people that instantly make you feel comfortable when you’re around them. They’re thoughtful, funny, down to earth and full of laughter. At the end of a month-long stretch of shooting over a wedding a week (not to mention moving and pulling off a thesis show), their low-key celebration out at a remote cabin in Index Washington was a welcome change of pace. While editing, I enjoyed experimenting with cross-processed color and low contrast black and white. Let me know what you think!
After seeing her brother’s engagement pictures Julia and her fiancé Elliot decided to book an engagement session with me at Discovery Park. The weather was the warmest day so far this year, which made jumping in the ocean relatively comfortable. It was an honor to capture their quiet playful love for each other.
