2016 was an interesting year. A lot of good mixed in with some bad. It was a bit of a roller-coaster. Looking back through photos of the year is always therapeutic for me though…reminding me of all the good times. I am very much looking forward to some new adventures in 2017! Cheers to everyone I had the pleasure of working with this year and to all my friends and family. May this year be filled with love, laughter, and new memories.

Here are some of my favorite moments (personally and professionally) from this year!

This job has taken me to some crazy places and I have been lucky to meet some amazing people. In this particular instance it brought me back to someone. Kristina and I were best friends when we were kids and through the power of social media and photos, we reconnected and I was there with her 20 years later to shoot one of the most important days of her life. I couldn’t have been happier to be apart of her day.

Thank you to the entire Octupulla gang…you guys really know how to make a girl feel at home.

Love you all and can’t wait to see you again soon.

I met these two a few years ago when they stayed with my husband and I during Oktoberfest through AirBnB. They were such a sweet couple and I told them if they ever got married to let me know…and sure enough they did! I was so happy to photograph their special day and am honored they still thought of me after all that time.

Wishing you both years of happiness, love, and of course, great beer :)

5 minute ignite wedding | seattle, washington

I flew out to Seattle last month to photograph a very special wedding. A wedding that actually took part over a 3 day period. This was day one.

Noah and Teresa met at an Ignite conference in 2011 and after doing several talks, it only seemed fitting to get married there as well! They had a 5 minute, surprise wedding on stage in front of hundreds of enthused strangers as well as their very large community of friends and family.

The crowd (apart from friends) had no idea that a wedding was about to take place and when the surprise was unveiled a roaring applause and standing ovation greeted the happy couple. It was pretty incredible.

(photos from the second wedding day coming soon…)
