Janel + Coaltyn | Mount Baker Elopement | Artist Point Wedding

Janel + Coaltyn | Mount Baker Elopement | Artist Point Wedding

On a clear day on Whidbey Island, you can see Mount Baker’s snow-capped peak standing watch over the island. The drive from here is about 2.5 hours, but well worth every minute. With rocky peaks, dense forest and colorful wildflowers, in my humble opinion, it’s one of the most beautiful locations in Washington State. Janel and Coaltyn planned their intimate elopement at Artist Point, with her cousin and his two brothers as witness to their I-do’s.

70 degree day, golden sunlight, whales spouting in the distance and warm sand under toes…(yes, I shot barefoot.) Days like this past Friday are the perfect representation of why I don’t just love being a photographer, but why I love being a photographer here on Whidbey Island. With the talents of KH Color Design, Brandi Ballard Photography and a ridiculously likable and photogenic duo, we kicked off the weekend with a wonderful evening of photography on the beach.

This gorgeous Pacific Northwest wedding is proof that a little (or in this case a whole lotta) rain can’t dampen the joy between two crazy-in-love people on their wedding day! Madison and Robert were married on the cliffs of Rosario, just a few minutes away from Deception Pass Bridge. Surrounded by their closest family and friends who traveled from all over the world to be there, the two of them exchanged rings and vows, while promising to be each other’s best friend and confidant for life.
