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!

Rob + Kelsey | Tsillan Cellars Winery

They didn’t exactly meet or fall in love in a typical fashion, by any means. Both being nurses, Rob met Kelsey during her very last year in nursing school at Pacific Lutheran University. It wasn’t an intentional meeting, since he was in the master’s program and she was successfully finishing up the bachelor program.

…buuuuuuuuuut…..in usually every love story, there is something similar. But for Rob & Kelsey? They were assigned to the same community group project about….you guessed it (probably not)….. lyme disease. ;)

Through project boards and paper writing, there was room for a loooooot of time together and these two well, I guess you could say  that Lyme disease is what brought them together (not exactly, but kind of). ;)

I first met Kelsey last summer when she was in the beginning stages of planning their wedding :: and I was just blown away by the way she talked about Rob. Her affection and care and tenderness towards him was expressed through her emotion, the words she said and the way she described their relationship. And the same is for Rob. Just minutes before their first look, I asked him, “Does Kelsey cry much?” and he said, “Yeah, but I probably will first.”  (I melted!!!!) 

He cares for her so tenderly, he caresses her cheek in the most gentle fashion, wraps his arm around her shoulder and pulls her in close, and constantly flirts with her in the cutest, most precious way possible!

I really just couldn’t get enough of these two. It was the most precious day in the most beautiful place and these two became Mr. & Mrs. Hunter. I was SOOOOO excited to be a part of their wedding!! <3 It was vibrant and totally, completely the most happy, joyful day!

I am so so so so happy for these two!

I mean if you ever need a honeymoon photographer just to document the time while you’re out swimming with sea turtles…I’ve always wanted to go to Costa Rica ;)




Kelsey wanted to have a first look with her dad….look at this handkerchief she got him!! Soooo sweet!


I LOVE working with Lynn at Fleur De Lis…..she does THE best job! Her work is flawless!


Oh my goooooosh I died. The COLORS!


This may have been the sweetest thing I have EVER seen at a wedding…Kelsey chose to have her grandma’s walk as her flower girls down the aisle…look at these two!! Soooooooo precious!
