Sam and Sarah's rainy PNW Wedding at Camas Meadows Golf Course {Camas, WA Wedding Photographer}

The moment I spoke with Sarah on the phone, I knew I wanted to work with her and capture her PNW Wedding at Camas Meadows Golf Course.

Sam and Sarah, live Japan and most of their family is here in the states. Sarah works as a teacher and Sam serves in the U.S Navy.  Sarah went to school in WA and fell in love with the area. A year or so prior the two of them officially tied the knot in Hawaii.. but Sarah dreamt of having a big wedding surrounded by all her friends and family. So They decided to plan a ceremony and renew their vows here in Camas WA at Camas Meadows Golf Course. 
With the time difference we did most of our communicating via email and occasional phone meetings. When they arrived here in WA just 6 days before their wedding we met up for a pre-wedding session and I created a beautiful album for them in record time to use as their guestbook:

See Iphone video:

Sam was a little nervous and he paced around in the grooms quarters while waiting for their first look. Even though they were technically already married, They still had to say their vows in front of a large group. But once they had their first look I think those wedding day jitters went away. The clouds were rolling in, it had been raining on an off most of the day. Lucky for us we had just enough time outside to do the first look, all of our formals shots and family photos. Right before the ceremony the rain came down and we all adapted quickly and grabbed umbrellas. Sarah hoped for a beautiful sunny summer day in the PNW and we got a wet, soggy, gray day but it was absolutely beautiful and full of love anyway. 

Here are some of my favorites from their day:

Ridgefield Wedding at Summit Grove Lodge {Ridgefield Wedding Photographer}

On a cool July day Annie and Tyler said I Do at Summit Grove Lodge in Ridgefield, WA-- Yep that's right I said cool.. it was so nice and cool and overcast! and I couldn't complain being 9 months pregnant and shooting my last wedding before baby comes.

Annie made for a beautiful bride. Annie laughs alot.. well actually she giggles.. It's the cutest thing ever, she's super sweet and shy. When she's nervous, she laughs and she did a lot of that on this day. Throughout her vows she giggled and all of her guest smiled and gleaned as the they watched and listened. She giggled through their first dance and the cake cutting too but in her face you can see how truly happy she was to be marrying her bff on this day. It was such an honor to capture their wedding! The venue was lovely. The food was on point and the flowers were so romantic and beautiful.  Here are just a few of my favorite images from their wedding day:
