Brett and Heather Anniversary Session {Wedding photographer Vancouver, WA}

Last winter, I photographed Brett and Heathers wedding at the Grant House in Vancouver, WA. It was a joyful intimate wedding with Brett and Heathers closest friends and family. I liked Heather as soon as I met her. She loves to laugh and is so genuinely nice. Her energy was contagious and I was thrilled when she chose me as her wedding photographer. Their wedding was full of emotions. I could sense their true love and the love of their friends surrounding them and lifting them up in prayer during their ceremony. 
1 year later, they asked me to do anniversary photos. I loved the idea! What a fun way to celebrate their first year of marriage-- and they are so cute!  Both very much in love and full of laughter. So we went out on a very cold and windy day to do their session. We were all freezing. Our hands were numb and our faces red from the cold. I suggested we go somewhere warm where we could grab coffee before we go back out to shoot. So we wound up at a local favorite of mine downtown Vancouver, WA Torque Coffee. We grabbed a couple of coffees and sat down on some funky furniture. The lighting inside was amazing and I continued to photograph them while we chatted about life and the excitement of their new home. 

Here are a few of my favorites from their session:











Here is one from their wedding last year:

Getting Ready for your Wedding: Tips for Brides

 Let's talk about Wedding Hair and Makeup and how long you will need to get ready on your wedding day. When it comes to planning your wedding day timeline this is a question I get a lot from brides "How long will it take to get ready?"  Generally, the answer is different for every bride and I try my best to give great advice when it comes to planning these details but let's face it, I'm the photographer, not a wedding planner or HMUA. I typically will suggest my brides get ready early and plan at least 1 hour per bridesmaid for hair and makeup. It seems like a lot of brides think they are going to have all day to get ready but time slips away very quickly on the day of. I have seen bridal parties with 10+ bridesmaids get full hair and makeup and still arrive on time ready for photos with no hiccups and I've seen small bridal parties struggle to show up an hour late to the ceremony. It's so important to make sure you have enough time for everyone to get rea

So you want to start a photography business?

 Hello friends,  I wanted to hop on and answer a question I get all the time... How do you start a photography business?  Yep, I know it's kind of a broad question but believe me I get tons of emails, Facebook messages, and Instagram DMs with people flat out asking for me to help them get started.  I don't mind, really I'm happy to help but if I really truly shared every bit of information with every single person who reached out it would take me hours and hours to put it all together and I would be giving away everything I have done/learned. That is coaching or mentoring and if you are looking for a business coach I know some amazing ones and I'd be happy to connect you or if you'd like to hire me as your photography business coach, I'd be happy to work with you. It's so much more than taking pretty photos or setting up cute backdrops and props. If you don't have a good understanding of how to run a business it can be incredibly challenging.  I have do

Pomeroy Farm Wedding, Jesse and Sierra

I absolutely love photographing couples at Pomeroy Farm Wedding Venue in Yacolt WA! It is by far one of my favorite venues. I love that is a historical venue. The history is so neat, the property is absolutely stunning and the family who owns and operates the wedding venue and historic farm are just the sweetest. They offer a variety of events throughout the year for families to visit and learn about the farm. Pumpkin lane is one of my favorites in October! If you haven't been out to see this beautiful historic Farm,  Wedding Venue, and winery you should definitely plan a visit!  Wedding Venue: Pomeroy Farm- Yacolt, WA What song did you choose for your first dance?
