Ashley + Jordan · Arlington, Washington at Stilly Brook Farm · Wedding Photographer

Today I get to share yet another very special wedding with you all.
I was absolutely thrilled when my aunt, Ashley, reached out to me to shoot her wedding. I was excited for a number of reasons, the main one being that I haven't been able to spend much time with this part of my family throughout my life. In fact, Ashley and I have only met once before this and nearly all of our communication over the years has been through text and social media. My heart was so warm upon the request to come up and capture this celebration of love while also getting the chance to bond with my family. This made it a truly memorable wedding. It was the union of two wonderful souls, Ashley and Jordan, and the reconnection of family that we had all been eager for.
Ashley is this sweet, wonderful mother and incredibly nice human being. Jordan is the direct reflection of her sweetness, and has this sense of humor that has to be witnessed in person. Together they are a dynamic and beautiful couple that I am so ecstatic about capturing. Endless gratitude to both of them for allowing me to capture their love for each other and their gorgeous children.
The wedding was hosted north of Seattle in the beautiful area of Arlington, Washington at Stilly Brook Farm. Stilly Brook Farm is this beautifully maintained property with a gorgeous barn that the wedding took place in. We utilized the property and took photos all around the yard of the house that sat in front of the barn.
I had so much fun traveling to Washington to celebrate and capture the love of Ashley and Jordan. Spending time with my family who I have rarely been able to see was just the cherry on top of a wonderful experience.

Sasha · Cle Elum, Washington · Portrait Photographer

Back in July I visited Washington state for the first time for a family reunion, and surprisingly I've been back since then to shoot a wedding (which I will hopefully be blogging soon).

I already posted once about the family reunion which was held at the Suncadia resort in Cle Elum, Washington. It's a beautiful area and although I honestly prefer the more rural, cabin in the woods type of mountain trip, this was fun as well. Resorts tend to provide lots of random places for photos (like bicycles stacked all on top of each other and rows of mopeds). And it's just a blessing to be able to spend time with family! So, like any photographer I recruited family members into letting me take photos of them. This is my cousin Sasha and we had fun doing a quick 20 minute golden hour shoot!

Here are a few from our little session:
