I’m so excited to finally be blogging Maranda and Shaun’s wedding at Red Barn Studios!

If you’ve been following this wedding season you’d know Maranda was the second shooter at mine and Clynn’s wedding! She was just in highschool and took some of our absolute favorite images from our wedding day.

When I saw her and Shaun were engaged I hoped she’d reach out to me. She did and I was so excited to see the experience turn full circle for us.

Their family and friends were so welcoming and the vendors at Red Barn Studios did an amazing job!

Maranda and Shaun chose to have an outdoor ceremony with an indoor cocktail hour and reception. Red Barn Studios allowed for cocktail hour to take place on ground level with a beautiful reception staged upstairs in the main barn reception area. I love when wedding days can be separated from location to location throughout the day. It helps each segment feel unique and interactive!

Red Barn Studios is in Chehalis, Washington. I had Angel & James’ wedding just a couple days before Maranda and Shaun so I stayed at The Tin Shed nearby. This way, I could rest up and be in the area for the rehearsal party the day before!

I don’t go to wedding rehearsals often but am always happy to when I’m available and nearby when they take place!

The rehearsal threatened rain but we ended up having beautiful weather the entire wedding day!

By the time sunset formals rolled around the wedding celebrations had drawn to a close. It was so nice to not worry about getting them back to a reception and enjoy couples portraits as long as we had light!

Enjoy each pretty detail, the most beautiful light, perfect wind moments, a fun barn, and the cutest family!

Congratulations, Maranda & Shaun!

      Thank you, Anya!! I was squealing when that light popped through.
      I look for that glowy light everywhere after that set was taken!


Broken sublimity. “I am because you wouldn’t have it any other way.” You, are not. I should have heard that. They weren’t an illusion on my mountain. They were fixed in the sky. A planet with gravitational pull that kept my feet on the ground. A united reality where I slept safely. A further joke […]

Becky booked Ethan’s Baseball Senior Photos with The Studio about a year before we were able to finally document them. I’m so happy we finally got together to document a special time for their whole family and especially Ethan! Becky and I first met when I photographed her and Aaron’s engagement photos at the Milton […]

With two weddings remaining summer 2022, we’re preparing to leave the state, but not just yet. I feel the need to stay close to my couples around their wedding dates which puts us not traveling […]

I’m celebrating. In a family suite at Little Creek. By a dreamy electric fireplace in dusk window light. There’s the sound of little boys watching cartoons in another room and Dinah munching food while I sip Grapefruit Pompelini. Clynn’s at a Poker Tournament. Laughing, I’m sure. Winning? Most likely. Dropping a hand or two out […]
