Madison & Robert | Rosario Beach Rainy Day Wedding | Whidbey Island Elopement

Madison & Robert | Rosario Beach Rainy Day Wedding | Whidbey Island Elopement

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.

Grace - The Princess Bride | Whidbey Island

Everyone loves the summers here on Whidbey Island, but sometimes I’ll all about dancing in that Washington rain and embracing a moody and romantic winter. Grace (who was totally channeling both Princess Buttercup and Jenny from Forest Gump with her ethereal boho look)

Marrem & Mark | Rosario Beach Engagement | Whidbey Island

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.

Calling the North Home | Oak Harbor, WA | J Hodges Photography

How is it already October?  For pretty much the first time since we moved in June, the blue skies and crystal clear views of the mountains have been swapped for that Washington Sate rain we were warned about...but you know what, we still love it!  Iced lattes have been traded for hot peppermint tea,
