Feel free to cozy up with your favorite beverage (if you're like me, then maybe it's an espresso over ice with a splash of cream, or a warm matcha latte if it's cold outside!) and stay awhile. This is my place to share not just beautiful weddings or sessions, but to share my life. My hope is through this, you'll get to know a bit more about me and all the beautiful people that make it worth living!

Coleman and Sydney | a romantic wedding near lake chelan

I’m pretty sure it was last fall that Sydney and I first started chatting on the phone and after our first conversation I remember running down the stairs and telling my husband, “Babe!!!! I just talked to the sweetest bride EVER and I’m pretty sure we could be best friends!!!” And you guys, that was after a 30 minute phone call! We’d never even met!! For those of you who know Sydney, you know she is seriously THE sweetest, most compassionate and kind hearted person you’ll ever meet. Place her next to Coleman and these two are are unstoppable. I felt beyond honored to be invited into their families for the day and get to know them. These two and their wedding day will forever be a memory that I will treasure. You see, I attend a number of weddings every year. And I get to play a role throughout the day that not many get the privilege of experiencing. I always tell my couples we better like each other because we spend pretty much oh…a lot of their wedding day…together. ;)

All that to say, Coleman and Sydney both come from solid families who love Jesus and have servant hearts like I’ve never seen. It was an absolute honor and privilege to celebrate their day in THE most perfect setting. From trees swaying in the gentle breeze to the warm sun peeking through the clouds, their day was practically perfect. Tucked in the mountains outside Lake Chelan, these two said yes under the most gooooorgeous floral arrangement (major shoutout to the best vendors ever!!!) and danced the night away with homemade cookies and authentic street tacos with too many salsas to count. I had the pleasure of working alongside Loreen and her husband – they have the coordinating game DOWN. I wish I could be at every wedding with these two!! Local vendors from the Lake Chelan area teamed up to deliver the very best for these two and it was an honor to photograph it all!!!

I could go on and on forever about these two and their incredible relationship and their amazing family and friends buuuuut I’ll let the almost-a-million photos do the talking from here. :) Coleman and Sydney, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for letting me be a part of documenting your story and the day you two became Mr. and Mrs. McElroy!!!
