Watch Out Washington…

I’m Back. We sat in our secret garden last night. Bright as day at 8:00pm. Clynn turned to Leo, “It’s Momma’s turn now. Us Moon Boys better buckle in. It’s going to be a long crazy summer with our Sun People.” Referring to James & I I’m awake by 6:30am…because it feels right. I go […]

Artist Search

Clynn and I are on an Artist Search! We are looking for an oil paint artist to paint over the image below. Every now and again, I process an image that marks a pivotal moment for SJP. I don’t plan it, necessarily. These images just happen sometimes! Some day, I’ll do a blog post of […]

Why I Choose Wedding Photography

If you’ve ever been to a work seminar or heard an inspirational speaker even open their mouth you’ve probably heard something about “finding your why”. Digging deep to find out WHY you wake up and do whatever it is that you do. My “Why” has changed allot in the past 3.5 years but a moment […]

Seymour Botanical Conservatory

My first styled shoot of the year I designed to be a simple one. It would be in a new location with newlyweds Heidi and Michael. My goal was to try new posing, angles, crops, and test some new editing techniques. Lastly, I would test my ability to create clean light and highlight to shadow […]

Right before Christmas I received a message from SJP Preferred Vendor DJ Midnight Mike/ Michael Dwyer. He became a partner/manager with the Ballard Annex Oyster House. He would be hosting a Christmas Work Party in their beautiful upstairs intimate venue and was looking for some photos of what they have to offer as a venue. […]

Element 79 Modern Seattle Venue | Desireè & Sidney

Des & Sidney’s winter wedding on December 22, 2018 was my last wedding of 2018! At first, I worried about shooting a wedding so close to Christmas but it ended up being exactly where I needed to be on that day. We started the day in a suite at the Motif Hotel in Seattle. This […]

Browns Point Improvement Club

Lizzie and Robert’s wedding at the Browns Point Improvement Club was so exciting for me! I hadn’t shot a wedding since right before Christmas so I was more than ready. I first met these two what feels like a full year ago (though it was really like 10 or 11 months). As we were at […]

Des Moines Fall Wedding

In 2017 I photographed this Fall Wedding in Des Moines, Washington. Many of my readers see my numbers and think, “how the heck did she shoot 75+ weddings and we’ve only seen like 20?”. I hear you! I was so busy serving my couples, I didn’t make time to create a system for regular sharing. […]

The Orchard At Sunshine Hill | Jackie & Devon

Some of you may have seen my recent post where I shared my “Top Three Washington Wedding Venues”. Number Three was The Orchard At Sunshine Hill! When I shared the news with the vendor they requested the use of the images for upcoming marketing campaigns. I went back to update the edits and send them […]

Top Three Washington Wedding Venues

Clynn and I have been active wedding photographers for over three years now! With over 70 weddings documented, I am blown away at how many wedding venues are in Washington State. I’ve only repeated venues two or three times and there are so many venues I’ve yet to visit. Options are surly not limited here […]
