It’s that time of year again. A time to reflect and look back on the year that was. I love being a photographer!
As I combed through literally thousands of images to select the ones for this post, I got to enjoy the year all over again and relive the moments that made the year so great. I selected images that mean something to me for many reasons… Images I want to remember. The process made me grateful that I get to be a part of the lives of so many great people. I get a front row seat into one of the best days of your lives.
Thank you for that!
I could be wrong, but I think for many people 2016 was stressful. From the uncertainty around the world to the U.S. Presidential election, it’s easy to focus on the negative. My hope is that these pictures will remind you that there is still great beauty in life. That people are good and love is alive and well. We just need to focus on it. 🙂
I hope you enjoy this…I know I did.

I love this image all on it’s own but it’s even better with a little explanation. You see, everyone was off awaiting Todd and Dawn to be introduced into the reception. I was in the room with them and said I would give them a moment alone before they headed out. As I walked away I turned around and saw this. It’s not posed. It was their real first dance. All by themselves. It doesn’t get any better than that! Click here to see more from this wedding!
Lairmont Manor at night is magical! Click here to see more from this engagement session! This adorable little girl is going to have her hands full with all her boy cousins. Or is it other way around? 🙂 I love this long pathway at Evergreen Gardens! Did you know that this amazing young woman was a flower girl in my wedding…11 years ago! Click here to see more from this engagement session at Western Washington University Diana is so awesome!!These three win the award for best toast of 2016! So awesome!First looks with Dad are my fav! Here we go! Kelsey is class personified. Frank was trying to get his composure as Katie and her Dad started down the aisle. Steve was clearly touched by his father-in-law’s toast. A beautiful sunset at Maplehurst Farms. It was pretty emotional watching Amanda say her vows to her new family! These two got a little carried away when they blew out their candles and accidentally blew out the Unity Candle….oops!
