"Sometimes you just know" Mark and Lindsay Engaged {Vancouver WA Wedding Photographer}

"Sometimes you just know!" That's what Mark said to me as he explained his marriage proposal story. I listened to him as he described the experience and I watch her face light up with the most beautiful gleam. Totally and Completely in L O V E.  (All the feels people seriously!)  The way he spoke about Lindsay and how much he loves and wants to marry her-- I thought to myself "I have to photograph this wedding" 
I'm such a sucker for love.. but sometimes I have these clients that I just completely fall in love with!! (who am I kidding.. I love all of them) But- this particular couple just made me so excited to document their special day. Seriously- I'm so honored that I get to photograph their wedding at The Country Garden Estates this summer! 
These two just hit the road and moved to Sunny Arizona. With about a week's notice, we managed to squeeze in an engagement session just before they left. It was a super yucky rainy forecast-- One I'm particularly used to, living in the NW as Photographer. Sometimes it can be a challenge to find the location, when it's super cold and wet outside.  So we hopped in their truck and we drove around downtown Vancouver. I had an idea of where I wanted to go and I told them I'm going to just look for areas based on the light and what inspired me. 
I actually love being forced out of my comfort zone and finding a new unexpected place to shoot. So here are the images from Mark and Lindsay's Engagement Session: 

 I think this last set are my faves!! 😊😊😊😊😊

Are they not just the cutest ever?!?! 

Can't you see why I loved them instantly!! Congratulations Mark and Lindsay! I can't wait to photograph your wedding 💗💗💗💗

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?
