Olympia Courthouse Elopement



A Back-Blog from Flora & Christian’s late night Olympia Courthouse Elopement.

This last week I’ve booked two and had at least four inquiries for elopements! Doing so had me recalling the few elopements I’ve done in the past.

I love weddings of all sizes! From elopements, to intimate ceremony’s of 20. From standard 100 to large 200+ guest counts. They each come with their own pros. ♥

By the time Clynn and I got to the courthouse it was already dark! We figured they must have a hook up with the judge because it appeared as if the entire building were closed for the night. It was so romantic and the vibe was very elope-y!

I love that their family dressed up for their elopement! If you haven’t, hop on over to THIS BLOG POST where I talk about the do’s and don’ts of eloping. Flora and Christian were definitely some inspiration for that post. I love that they still made the occasion so beautiful and memorable for their family.

My favorite memory from this day was Christian ensuring he had the full support of his new kiddos. During the ceremony, he asked each son and daughter if they “Do, Too”. They were married as a family. I’ll never forget that.

Their witnesses were close friends. At the end of the ceremony, the judge invited Christian & Flora’s kiddos to hop on the pulpit. If you’ve ever been to an adoption ceremony, you know this is a VERY rare and special invitation. ♥

CONGRATULATIONS, again to Christian, Flora, and their family! It’s been a couple years now, but this day is still just as (if not more) special with time!

    The reactions from the kids, so incredible.


“The cream is bitter!” Jamie said trying the not-to-sweet perfectly made whip cream from Zola’s on our morning date. Just yesterday. This morning, I ordered a triple shot white coffee, half pumpkin half white chocolate, oatmilk latte from another shop. Bitter Coffee. They don’t dump the first round of shots and that’s something I know […]

I’m hopeful and reminiscing. In his childhood bedroom. By the white noise of a generic white fan. Kissed only by natural light and surrounded by our children’s toys. With Trader Joe’s Quiches and Mango Pompelini. I remember the day I snuck up alone. 13 years old, I found his wallet by his bed. I cautiously […]

What a great time to be posting these Tacoma Family Photos at Titlow Park! I currently have TWO more mini sessions available for December 2, 2023 in Auburn, Washington. These are most commonly used for family photos but can be used as a mini engagment session, mini senior session, anniversary photos, or just about anything […]

5:20am. “Wake up beautiful yoga baby” My morning alarm reads. What if everything you ever wanted in life was riding on this? Health, happiness, wealth, joy, aspirations, ability to love in the healthiest ways, and confidence rode on just one or two things you already suspect to be the key? For me, it’s always been […]
