Sea Siren | Sunset on the Beach | Whidbey Island Elopement Photographer

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.

I love autumn on Whidbey Island, the air is crisp, the leaves are turning warm hues, and there's such a sense of beauty when the seasons are right on the cusp of change.  I first met Kristen and Jason around this time last year for holiday photos,

Ryann & Jeremy | Nature's Connection Place | Arlington Wedding Photography

Ryann and Jeremy were probably one of the most relaxed couples I've had the pleasure to photograph over the years.  Every interaction between them was just so effortless and joyful. Their connection was so genuine and they'd just be giddy whenever they looked at each other.  They were married at Nature's Connection Place in Arlington outside in a beautiful garden.  Guests enjoyed stone fired pizzas and a Baskin Robbins ice cream bar as they danced the night away!  Many hugs to the new Mr. and Mrs.  It was a delight!

I feel like Deception Pass State Park is the epitome of PNW livin'.  Beautiful, rugged and amazing. Saturday started off as a dreary day, but as we approached sunset, Mother Nature sure brought her A-Game for Ashley and André's engagement session!

Kate & Katie | Coupeville | Whidbey Island Couple's Photographer

Ok, I loved this session so much.  I first met Katie when I photographed her wife's Navy homecoming in the fall.  It was such a special moment when Kate got off the plane and finally was reunited with her wife.  Fast forward a few months, as these two are getting ready to say goodbye to Oak Harbor for their next station across the country.

Stone Family | Deception Pass | Oak Harbor Holiday Photography

It's October...in Washington State...and I had to kill a good 25 minutes with this couple because there was actually too much sun....whaaaattt?  I try to time these things out pretty well to give pictures that unbeatable "sunsety" glow, while making sure we have plenty of time to shoot.
