Colin and Rachel contacted me last minute to see if I could photograph their rehearsal dinner. Because Colin’s dad had been in a serious accident shortly beforehand, it was especially important to capture memories from the evening. I was glad to be available and hope these pictures do justice to a beautiful evening. Visit the main gallery here if you’d like to see more (just so you can see for yourself that Urban Light Studios actually has a wall covered in antique paint by numbers, and, among other things, a stuffed tiger).
When Kate and Brian first contacted me about photographing their wedding on Lummi Island, I immediately got excited about capturing their day in a place close to my heart. (I grew up looking out at the San Juans from my bedroom window and doing kayak/sailing trips through the islands each summer). They held an intimate ceremony and reception at the Willows Inn, which is one of the most beautiful and unpretentious venues I’ve had the opportunity to work at. Throughout the day I loved witnessing Brian and Kate’s quirky unassuming love for each other and their community. Here’s to a beautiful life together!

It was such a joy to capture Ben Heller and Kayti Krepel’s marriage! I already knew them a bit from our church in Seattle, but I felt like I got to really see them at their wedding. The service was a beautiful celebration of their relationship and their faith. I also loved all the hippy details that made their day special: outside at Parsons Gardens, barefoot, acoustic, and full of color. And did I mention that the entire wedding party decided to climb up into a tree for photos? Awesome.
James McGeathey and Tiffany Turner had a small, beautiful ceremony with family and friends at Elizabeth Park in Bellingham. Throughout the day, I enjoyed James’ fun, playful attitude and Tiffany’s creative attention to all the details. There was definitely a classy, creative vibe to the celebration, and I was especially impressed by the wedding cupcakes. You are both supported by your friends and family, and I wish you the best in your new marriage!
Liz and I started off a crazy month of wedding photography by capturing Zach Wright and Dannielle Coleman’s wedding at Bybee Farms in North Bend, Washington. We were refreshed not only be the gorgeous outdoor location, but by the overwhelming support we felt for Zach and Dannielle by their friends and family. Their grounding in their faith and their heartfelt commitment to each other were a blessing to witness.
Phil and Jamie celebrated their marriage at the Belle Chapel in Snohomish on May 16. They were referred to me by our mutual friend Brian Russell, who did a great job capturing their video. I especially enjoyed how they mixed a traditional style with their goofy personalities. Congrats again!
Last month my wife and I had the pleasure of capturing the wedding of another Bellingham couple, Niki Metzger and Erik Favro. They had a beautiful ceremony at the Squalicum Boathouse on Zuanich Point. We especially appreciated how they crafted a meaningful wedding that reflected their unique quirks and personality (plus their love for the northwest).
You guys are great together! Thanks for sharing your day with us.
This last Christmas break, I got to capture my sister in law’s wedding and New Years Eve reception/party. The weather was cold and rainy, which made the outdoor pictures an adventure, but we all survived! Zach and Tori were really relaxed, so I think that rubbed off on everybody else. I may be biased, but I think their reception was also the funnest I’ve ever been too. Congratulations on getting off to a great start!

Chris and Jenniey celebrated their marriage with a beautiful traditional ceremony at the Greek Orthodox Church of the Assumption in Seattle. I felt really welcomed by their family and wedding party, which made the day very rewarding and enjoyable. The tone may have been just a touch mellower than “My Big Fat Greek Wedding,” but it was still an adventure all the same!
