Tomorrow is Sarah and Euclides’ Weddding day.  How the time has flown these past few months!  I am off to beautiful Lake Chelan tomorrow to shoot their special day, but here is a look at their engagement photos in Seattle, WA near Lake Union.  I never can quite get over how pretty the greens are on the westside of the state.  Read  the sweet and amazing story of how these two met below.

While Sarah was serving as a Peace Corps Volunteer in a small community in rural Paraguay she never thought she’d meet the man of her dreams. Both Sarah and Euclides were attending a wedding in their town when Euclides asked Sarah’s friend if she would dance with him.
She obliged and they danced for a few songs. Sarah thought the whole time, this good looking man can’t be from her town because he was too good looking and she would have remembered him! A few months later Euclides got up the courage to text Sarah. They started to get to know each other and in August of 2011 they started officially dating.

From that moment on they were inseparable and enjoyed many adventures around Paraguay, but also enjoyed Sunday family lunches and snuggling during rain storms.
Sarah left Paraguay at the end of her Peace Corps service with the intent to do whatever possible to reunite with the love of her life.
 11 long months later and after mountains of paperwork and visa requirements, Euclides had his visa in hand and they were able to finally be together.
 Now in America, Euclides first time ever, they have enjoyed discovering all America has to offer and the new life they are embarking on together!

It had been a while since I had photographed a maternity session. But the evening I spent with Joe and Maureen made me fall in love again, the light, the flowers, the joy of expectancy. Enjoy a look at their sweet photos. These two are so cute and so in Love. I am more than excited to meet little Abe when he arrives in August. Congrats Guys!

Take a peek at Shareen and Jason’s Engagement Session. This West Side couple is getting married here at Arbor Crest Winery in July. We had a wonderful time shooting their photos downtown Spokane a few weeks back. I LOVE all the awesome spots we found.  Shareen and Jason have a sweet affection for each other, and a wonderful life a head of them. Congrats you two, I can’t wait to photograph your beautiful wedding day!

Amy and Joe are so awesome.  I feel like we are great friends already.  Their laid back personalities and fun loving lifestyle make them awesome to photograph and hangout with.  I especially love how they are Cougars and incorporated some Wazzu attire into the session. I am so excited for their August wedding at Camden Ranch.

Best of luck with the rest of the wedding planning you two, and blessings on this new adventure ahead of you.

 Hip Hip Hooray for the offical start of wedding season!   I have been looking forward to this wedding all year, and now the photos are here.   A special thanks to Lisa Wise for second shooting.   Kaylin and Vince are  some of the most awesome, caring, and  genuine couples I have had the pleasure of working with.  I definitely welled up behind my camera during the ceremony.   Their wedding was simply gorgeous with it’s romantic + rustic decor, warm atmosphere, and a fantabulous wedding party to boot!  Enjoy browsing the photos below.

 Kaylin + Vince I wish you all the best in your marriage together, may God richly bless you.
