Climbing and chasing waterfalls while the sun sets behind the mountain and the snow falls in the river. Chatting with locals while we sip our coffee and head out for the next adventure. Morning coffee and reading the newspaper together, the cool fall breeze blowing through the window as you pour yourself another cup. Rose and fireflies dancing in the spiderwebs. Talking for hours and dozing off with the tv on. The record skips a few times and we pick a new song to fall asleep to.

“She had the biggest crush on him, but wouldn’t gather the courage to actually talk to him for the next few months. Once they finally got to talking, he asked her out on a date, and a year later, they were married at Chateau Lill with the prettiest classic details. Modern touches like their signage placed all over the venue, and Kaia’s earrings and jewelry were the perfect finishing touches on the day.”

“Tim and Amanda were some of the most welcoming people we have ever met, their presence is calming, but fun. They have an insane amount of fun when they’re together, and that was all but clear on their wedding day dancing and singing in the pouring rain. They put so much time and detail into their big day, and it was an absolute dream of mine to be able to capture it all. “

…”Little details like their signs & cake table were handmaid by the bride and groom. Just so much love, & sweat went into making this day what it was. They had the whole ranch to themselves for the weekend, so the atmosphere was extremely chill & everyone was so relaxed on the day of since they had ample time the day before for the set up.

…I stayed the night at Dean and Sierra’s the day before they’re shoot, and we sat around their fire, outside their brand new house, eating smores and reflecting on all the time they had spent together as a couple. The next day we ventured up to Mt Rainier (one of their fav spots) and captured their time as fiancés.

…Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE SIMPLE PROPOSALS. But before I stuck my head full of ideas into places it shouldn’t be, I asked him if he would like any wine, or a blanket laid out for the two of them to celebrate afterwards. We talked a little bit more, and then a little more, and then a little more, before I heard the magic words from this groom to be: “Kayla, I trust whatever you think will look great, I know it will!”.
