Kierston + Eric

I cannot believe I’ve lived in Washington my entire life and had never visited Mount Rainier National Park.  A serious oversight on my part for sure.  Now I only wish it was closer so I could go every week.  We enjoyed beautiful but chilly weather for our shoot in July and the mountain didn’t actually make an appearance until two hours after our shoot but I still consider the day a complete success.  Amazing beauty is in abundance around every bend and it’s hard to not just sit in awe and soak it all in.

Campbell + Safford

Such a fun wedding at Green Gates at Flowing Lake.  Kilts, firemen, and so many details that melded these two families together.  I loved all the symbolic touches that spoke loudly of the love and connection Jessica + Rob have grown over the years and are now cementing in marriage.  Cheers!

There are so many summer days that I wish I had tangible photographic memories, but it is hard when you are actually living them as well.    The simple, everyday activities that fill summer days and make up the deep-seeded-contented happy that is childhood.  Little backyard pools filled with flowers, toys and grass. Blowing bubbles to chase with sticky soapy fingers.  Slip and sliding down a hose soaked tarp that is more fun than Wild Waves because you’re at home with family.  Then wrap up all these simple pleasures with a meal shared around a picnic table under the shade of a tree.  Yep, these are the moments that fill up that happy in my heart reminding me childhood doesn’t have to be plugged in or expensive.  Bring on the bubbles!Lake Stevens lifestyle photograph Lake Stevens lifestyle photograph Lake Stevens lifestyle photograph Lake Stevens lifestyle photograph KCB photography_0156 Lake Stevens lifestyle photograph KCB photography_0157 KCB photography_0166 KCB photography_0162 Lake Stevens lifestyle photograph Lake Stevens lifestyle photograph KCB photography_0163 KCB photography_0165 KCB photography_0167 KCB photography_0164 KCB photography_0168 KCB photography_0160 KCB photography_0169 Lake Stevens lifestyle photograph KCB photography_0171 KCB photography_0172 Lake Stevens lifestyle photograph KCB photography_0190 Lake Stevens lifestyle photograph KCB photography_0174 KCB photography_0189 KCB photography_0191 Lake Stevens lifestyle photograph Lake Stevens lifestyle photograph KCB photography_0176 Lake Stevens lifestyle photograph KCB photography_0178 KCB photography_0181 KCB photography_0182 Lake Stevens lifestyle photograph Lake Stevens lifestyle photograph KCB photography_0185 Lake Stevens lifestyle photograph KCB photography_0186

My favorite part of engagement shoots?  Spending the day with two fabulous people with nothing to do but explore, have fun, get to watch love in action and take beautiful photos!  This day at Discovery Park & the Ballard Farmer’s Market with Nate & Kendall  was an absolute success.  I cannot wait for their wedding this summer.  I know it is going to be grand.

Eric & Jenna’s wedding was an international affair.  Guests traveled from London, Australia, Kenya just to name a few, to a little paradise escape in Yakima.  Cascade Gardens is a hidden gem sequestered across from the largest hops farm in Washington.  It truly felt like a meet up of long lost friends.  The atmosphere was joyous, celebratory and so very welcoming.  A sweet love affair for everyone to enjoy.

Oh what a day.  A day I have personally been praying for for years.  The day one of my very good friends found the man God had chosen for her and began their life together.  I am so very proud of the journey that led to this day and the incredible honor it was to photograph its beauty unfolding at Maplehurst.   There were many short breaks for happy tears and heartfelt hugs (Andrea’s favorite), but I know I am forgiven.   So very, very joy filled  for you my friend and looking forward to watching the journey continue.  2015-05-18_00192015-05-18_0007 2015-05-18_0005 2015-05-18_0001 2015-05-18_0011 2015-05-18_0026 2015-05-18_0015 KCB photography 2015-05-18_0023 2015-05-19_00372015-05-18_0024 2015-05-18_0030 2015-05-18_0016 2015-05-18_00092015-05-19_0038 2015-05-19_0039 2015-05-19_00412015-05-19_0040KCB photography KCB photography KCB photography KCB photography KCB photography KCB photography 2015-05-18_0002 KCB photography 2015-05-18_0006 KCB photography KCB photography KCB photography KCB photography KCB photography KCB photography KCB photography 2015-05-18_0010 2015-05-19_0035KCB photography 2015-05-18_0018 2015-05-18_0020 2015-05-18_0022 KCB photography KCB photography KCB photography KCB photography KCB photography KCB photography KCB photography KCB photography KCB photography 2015-05-18_0013 KCB photographyKCB photography2015-05-18_0008 2015-05-19_0008 KCB photography 2015-05-19_0012 2015-05-19_0015 KCB photographyKCB photographyKCB photographyKCB photography KCB photography KCB photography KCB photography 2015-05-19_0027 KCB photography KCB photography

I know I’ve said this before but there is something so incredibly special about spending time in a beautiful location with a couple in love and getting to photograph it all.  Seriously, it is so much my favorite.  You can’t look through this shoot and tell me you’re not a little jealous of our sunny day at the river and secretly wish you were there with us.

Filmed a fun video with my friend Jenny Cookies the other day (you can check it out here!) on making little, incredibly delightful terrariums.  Turns out I am completely enchanted with succulents.  They have so much beautiful texture, color, variety and just amazing cleverness wrapped up in a small package.  Grouped together they make for some serious eye candy.  Combine that with all the wonderful details of Jenny’s ladies luncheon and it was quite the afternoon.  2015-05-03_0001 2015-05-03_0002 Jenny Cookies, naked cake 2015-05-03_0005succulent2015-05-03_0006 Illume‘s Cactus Verde scent is splendid.  It’s clean, refreshing and seems to energize.  That’s a lot for a yummy scent to manage.

I showed up to Stephanie’s house so very excited to get this wedding season on the move!  In fact, I was so early I made myself wait in the car for a little while so as not to be too over zealous.  I am so glad to have started the day with this fabulous group of girlfriends who were so supportive and incredibly helpful.  I cannot tell you how it warms my heart when bridesmaids and groomsmen genuinely take their role seriously and really come alongside the bride & groom to make their day as fabulous and stress-free as possible.  The whole day was just a lovely unfolding of this sweet couples friends and family’s heartfelt celebration of  Keith & Stephanie.   It was such an joy to be in the mix watching, enjoying and feeling very much a part of it all.

It’s a little bit magical when I can sneak the couple out for a few more sunset portraits.  Everyone is relaxed, happy and so ready to just be happy in love.
