Wedding

Henry Wedding // Cattle Barn

Hey! WOW...it's been over a year since I've blogged last and I am SO excited to have my first blog back be Ashley & Steve's wedding at the Cattle Barn in Cle Elum, WA! AMAZING venue, vendors, the most perfect weather, bridal party goals, sparkly dresses, axes, antlers galore, and cowboy boots for days!

I met Ashley through a childhood friend and loved her sweet demeanor from the beginning. I knew she was going to be such a chill, thoughtful, and gorgeous bride. I got to know both her and Steve a bit better during their engagement session in the Teanaway. We explored the old town of Liberty and hiked up to the top of a lookout tower during wildfire season (which ended up being perfect with the smoke in the background of some of the images, as Steve used to be a wildland firefighter!) Aside from the beautiful scenery we encountered that day, I got to see first hand the love that these two shared for one another and it had me extra excited for their wedding day! 

The day began with the two of them getting ready in their venue's extremely cute farm house, they exchanged vows after their first look, received thoughtful gifts from family and friends (including a photo pendant of Ashley & her grandfather from one of her bridesmaids!) They "iced" their friends and were all around a fun bunch the entire day! Lots of tears, laughter, and celebrations! I couldn't be more happy that these two found one another and that I had the opportunity to tell their love story! Thank you both SO much for including me in one of the most special days of your lives! 

 

 

Erickson + Salmon la Sac // Engagement

Last November, my second shooter Byron and I, ventured out into the wilderness of the Salmon la Sac area to photograph Michael & Jodi’s engagement photos. Poor Michael tweaked his neck the night before, so posing was a bit difficult at times, but these two rocked it like they were professional models I tell you what!

I can’t believe their wedding day is tomorrow! It’s going to be a scorcher, but it will be a perfect and beautiful PNW summer wedding! It’s hard to put into words the type of wonderful energy these two put out when you’re around them, so I am beyond excited to spend the entire day with them tomorrow and capture their love story!

Since I put blogging on the back-burner for the last few years, here are some of my favorites from their session this last fall! Hopefully the images of snow capped mountains and beanies cool you down on this hot summer day! ;)
