taylor + courtney // formals


there’s an energy to a formal session that i love. playing dress up like it’s your wedding day when you’ve got just inches still to go. this almost-finally sigh of relief-anticipation, of we’re-so-close. to step away from all the muck of the stress and business of wedding planning for just a few hours, to breathe, to look at one another and smile, and say, “this is why we’re doing this. we’re doing this.”

i think it’s a luxury we should all afford ourselves. to trust that things will work out, and have this little bit of us time. and i feel so lucky when we can be there to capture it.

and when your session is on the Hawthorne Bridge right smack in the middle of the Hood to Coast run, you might just have dozens of strangers cheering and congratulating you. and that’s something quite magical too, i think.

stephen + hannah // the wedding


hannah and stephen fell in love. stephen went on a two-year church mission and wrote hannah every week of it. on a day in late summer that was just the right amount of cloudy, hannah wore her mother’s wedding dress, and surrounded by family and close friends, they promised to spend forever together.
