Chris & Jessica's Black Barn Vineyard Wedding

Chris and Jessica's day was blessed with sunshine, family and friends from all over the states, and so much to entertain! It was the perfect day!

When we arrived the Barn was absolutely stunning and the girls were all dressed in matching flannel shirts.!They were so cute laughing, getting emotional, and doting all over Jessica. It was adorable to see how close they all were! 

Growing up their families attended church together and it was at this very church where they first met each other. So prior to the ceremony, tucked away without seeing each other they took a moment to pray. And as guests were seated upstairs you could feel the excitement and joy of the two families ready to come together. 

At Black Barn Vineyard (BBV) everywhere we we went was picturesque! While guests enjoyed the cocktail hour, the bridal party explored the grounds and we made our way into the vineyards. 

Dinner was so delicious! The speeches were hilarious (including the best man's who couldn't be there but gave his via live video chat courtesy of the DJ), everyone enjoyed the sunset while playing lawn games, and talked into the night on the open bar patio. As the sky grew dark everyone filled the dance floor and the photo booth.

And before anyone could get tired (With exception of the little people), the S'more Bar was lit and everyone enjoyed sweet treats from The Oak Tree Lounge. Everyone stayed until the end of the night when it was time to say farewell and Chris and Jessica ran off into a flurry of bubbles to their honeymoon!  

Chris & Jess, it was such an honor to be a part of capturing your day!  You are truly blessed with so much love surrounding you and I'm so glad to know that you have God as your center. Much love and God bless you in your new life together! 

And last but not least, THANK YOUS!
A huge thank you to my incredible colleague, dear friend, and 2nd shooter, Jennifer Jacobs! You are my 2nd half! My mind reader! You do such amazing work! Thank you to Marilynn & Travis for having the cutest kids ever! To the staff at the Oak Tree Lounge, Thank you for the beautiful display of cocktails, wine, and s'more bar.

Andy & Vicky's Engagement

A cozy campfire, walk in the woods, and warm dreamy sunlight! What more could you want to create such a romantic setting for engagement photos!? Maybe a little bow hunting? ;) 

After talking with Vicky about what she and Andy wanted for their session I could not wait to meet them!  Being a photographer herself, she knows how fun it is to have great props to help capture the character and story of a subject. They did an fantastic job of creating the tent and bringing in some meaningful props. Getting to be their photographer for an evening was a real treat!  

Andy and Vicky have a true chemistry and strong friendship that is felt the moment you meet them! I loved seeing the way they enjoyed each other and am so happy that they will soon be celebrating their marriage with family and friends in Seattle! Vicky and Andy it was truly an honor to be your photographer! Wish I could go with you to Seattle for your big day! God bless you two and I hope you have a fantastic hunting season!
