Packing House Wedding at The Mighty Tieton in Yakima Washington

- David and Jenny -

I have been working on my 2016 year-end review blog and honestly I started freaking out... there were too many photos I wanted to share because I have been a major slacker on blogging this year (even worse than most). SO... while I will be putting out a year-end review blog, I will also be trying to make short blog posts about weddings and portrait sessions so I can share more of the photos I have loved this year without completely overwhelming you in one gigantic post.

So, to start us off here are a few of my favorites from David and Jenny's beautiful winter wedding at Mighty Tieton in Tieton, Washington. The Mighty Tieton used to be a big warehouse and is now more of an artist collective space that has multiple uses... and it is pretty awesome. Everything about this wedding was fantastic from the getting ready at Jenny's parent's home which is surrounded by orchards to the adorable little town of Tieton and it's old brick buildings that I love... the ceremony in a dimly lit, open warehouse, the warm company of David and Jenny's friends and family, the waffles, the ice cream cones for dessert, and the grand finale of their send off which included paper airplanes. It was perfection and I am so happy I was lucky enough to be a part of it!

Mt. Bachelor, Bend Oregon Engagement

- Casey and Erin -

I am always so excited when I get to be a part of people's love story... but I am especially happy when it is for someone I have a personal connection with. Erin and I were roommates in college for two years and I couldn't have asked for a better roomie back then and I couldn't be more happy for her that she found such a great guy to share her life with. Casey and Erin were able to come visit this past winter and we took them on a little adventure into the mountains to a frozen lake (or semi frozen... it's been a really dry winter!) for their engagement session. It may have been cold, but they are from Montana, so they at least pretended to be alright and it was SO worth the discomfort. Those mountains, streams, snow, and beautiful love make for one of my favorite engagement sessions to date!
