Congratulations to Emma and Chris! Days like Saturday remind me of why I chose to be a wedding photographer. Grateful to witness this absolutely beautiful celebration of these two wonderful humans in Ferndale, WA.
It was such a joy to spend the evening with April and Jenny in the Cascades. They're just fun, happy, lovely and wonderful people. My favorite part of the day (besides the incredible photos) was just sitting down for a beer as the last light of the day fell away and the stars started to appear above us. I can't wait for their wedding in just a few weeks!
I grew up reading Harry Potter, and my love for the stories and characters has only increased over the years. I’ve recently been doing a reread of the entire series and am constantly blown away by J.K. Rowling and her incredible creation. Each time I read about the life and adventures of Harry, Ron, Hermione, Dumbledore, Snape, Lupin, Luna, and the many other fascinating characters, I take away something different. A new message. A new appreciation. A new outlook.⠀
Along with my reread I’ve been listening to @binge_mode , where @malloryrubin and @x_netw3rk_x “have parsed the text of each Potter chapter, analyzing the story’s themes, rehashing memorable passages and hunting for signs of foreshadowing.”-New York Times. And it’s only increased my admiration for this story I’ve always held so close to my heart.⠀
Because I could not find a better way to express the importance of these books, I’ll let @malloryrubin say it for me. “They embody why we love stories. They remind us that ink and paper can be stronger than concrete or metal or any other building block. They convey in a single sentence the unsurpassed power of fantasy to unlock, for each and every one of us, a world of infinite possibility.”⠀
So, for the next little while I am going to be sharing some of my favourite quotes from the series.⠀
And if you have a favourite quote, character, chapter, or moment, I’d love to hear about it!

Can I take a minute to say how amazing these two women are! ❤️They spent many hours helping me prep for my wedding-making signs, floral arrangements, coming to dress fittings, and more. They made sure everything was taken care of the day before and day-of. @apallant running around (with a basically broken toe none-the-less) making sure all the decorations were in the right place and coordinating everyone so I didn’t have a ton of people asking me questions. I have never seen that side of her and it was so fantastic! @allie97045 corralling me so I could get ready on time and making sure I was having fun. Every time I wandered off to go take care of something, she would pop up a minute later, guide me back to the room, and plop my butt in the chair so we could finish my hair. She even made sure I got out of my heels 👡 as soon as possible and cleaned off the bed (and added water bottles) at the end of the night so we could flop our exhausted selves down without a worry. These two women are absolutely incredible and I am so thankful to have their love and friendship in my life.
I can’t wait for all the random dance parties, game nights, and other shenanigans to come! Love you both! 💙😘
Thanks to all yesterday for the birthday wishes! It was the perfect weekend celebrating another lovely trip around the sun! Now back at it + getting ready for a rad shoot at the painted hills tomorrow!

Kara rocked her “wifey” jean jacket during her wedding reception and I thought it was such a fun touch. The evenings can get a little chilly here in the valley once the sun goes down so having something to throw over your dress is a great idea (and also makes for fab photo ops)!
As a girl who loves a good jean jacket or vest, I am all about this. Would you rock a denim jacket on your wedding day!? ✌🏻
I just finished watching the show Ramy on Hulu and oh my goodness. It follows the story of Ramy, who is Muslim and a millennial living in NYC. His parents moved there from Egypt and it shows how he feels disconnected from his motherland and his religion and there’s plenty of hilarious shenanigans along the way. But I saw some major similarities with my own story and upbringing having been raised Catholic by my Mexican parents and I can’t even describe how wonderful it was to see a part of that story told. In an interview Ramy said “Hopefully in watching this you see a little bit of your family in it,” and I definitely did. What’s another dope show you’ve watched lately?
What a freaking weekend it’s been!! Hannah and Tal thank you so much for letting me be apart of your day. It’s hard to believe a year has passed by where I was that dude in the bushes running out to catch your surprise proposal haha and now here we are. Congrats to you both and I know you will be doing big things in this world.

I’ve grown to appreciate the creativity in engagement rings. A ring that represents your relationship. Your love. Your personality. Ugh I’m obsessed with this ring 🥰

I just love the in between a because in my opinion they are the real deal. They aren’t actually the outtakes. They are what life is truly like and I love that. Goodness these two were so much fun to hang out with. Im so thankful that this session with these two turned into a friendship. It’s my favorite thing. The fact that I have the opportunity to make new friends with this passion and job I’ve created. ☺️
If you are ever in The Dalles, OR, swing by @therivcafeor. You won’t be disappointed. Plus, I hear they are having their grand opening very soon after their remodel break. So, stop by and say hi from me and have a waffle for me.
On another quick note. Still over here pregnant and only 3 days away from my due date. 🤰🏼

Love me tender, love me sweet,
Never let me go.
You have made my life complete
And I love you so.
Happy anniversary babe! I don't think I could have dreamed up a love like yours. Thank you for making me laugh when I'm being the most serious, for adding a layer of mischief to my daily life, and for believing that I can do anything I set my mind to (while also reminding me about the bottom line). You're what I needed in this world to discover my joy and ripple out love on a grand scale. Thanks for hitting pause on life to get out in the woods to celebrate this last weekend. 🌲♥️🌲♥️🌲

Still in Glacier // We just drove by a grizzly, not 50 meters off the road, going to town on some huckleberries. 🐻 She was a real beaut. And I was very thankful to be inside a hard-sided vehicle. .
This trip has me thinking about bear mace. For the number of canisters bought, how many are actually used/dispensed under a bear encounter? Is there another consumable that is possibly used less in the world? All I know, is I’m sure glad we’ve never required ours 😅😬

Straight out of a fairytale, here’s one more from R+C’s wedding because wowowow it was the most perfect Tofino day - soft misty cloud cover followed by an epic sunset, with a side of views for days! And how stunning is her dress?! 💕💫 #tofinowedding#westcoastmagic#dreamjob

Tip of the day. Instead of tossing your flower crown after it’s worn you can simply hang it on a wall to dry and voilà! Adorable mini wreath.

They exchanged vows with their toes in the sand— a pretty magical start to forever.
We just returned home from our last summer beach week and I’m already missing the salt and the sand and the waves washing over my feet. The Oregon Coast is magical. *Sigh*

Cinta itu ibarat air. Mengalir dari tempat yang tinggi. Terjun bebas. Mengarungi jeram. Mengalir jauh. Hingga sampai di luasnya Samudra. #adventurouswedding
