It may have felt like winter during this Anacortes engagement session, but you'd never know it from the photos!  The chilly wind gave so much movement and life to the still photographs, and once again Rosario's dynamic background was the perfect spot for photos together.

Tiffany & Jon Married at Sea | Whale Watching Wedding off the San Juan Islands | Anacortes Wedding Photographer

Talk about the epitome of the PNW at its finest!  Usually the turquoise waters surrounding our island are in the distant background of photos, but for this maritime wedding, it set the scene for one of the most unique ceremonies I've photographed.  Tiffany and Jon celebrated their I-do's surrounded by their closest family and friends on a whale watching tour boat docked out of Anacortes.  For about 3 hours we cruised the open waters, passing bald eagles and various densely forested islands I didn't even know existed, until we came to a stop to watch an orca pod breaching and tail slapping in the distance and eventually coming right alongside the boat.

Columbia College Class of 2017 | NASWI | Oak Harbor Photographer

I get teary at weddings....it's just what I do. The pure joy, the heightened emotions, the candid moments...So who knew I'd also be turning on the water works at a graduation celebration?! Photographing Columbia College's graduating class of 2017 at NAS Whidbey Island was such a moving experience.  I loved hearing the students' personal stories of what their degree meant to them, watching the ceremony unfold, and documenting the pride and sense of accomplishment on not only their faces, but also on the faces of their loved ones.
