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!

Written July 2022 To all the LGBTQ people who fell in love with their best friend on accident. I see you. This was mine. I hope you find healing, too. To the girl I loved first, I’m 31 now. I think you turned 30 last month. I’ll bet you celebrated in a beautiful way. I […]

Something all of my readers should know if you don’t already? My updates are never permanent. Not even close. What we’re “for sure” up to one week might change in a random two hour conversation at 10:00pm on a Tuesday. I love that for our life. I love having time and location freedom. I feel […]
