Wythe Hotel Wedding


You might remember these two from their Manhattan Engagement Photos I shot this past winter. They’re kind of awesome. Jessalyn and Rob decided on the rad Wythe Hotel for their NYC wedding. Perfectly nestled in Williamsburg, it was definitely one of the hipper hotels I’d ever been to.

Rustic Outdoor Wedding

It’s pretty wild that I ended up booking two weddings in Canada, both in the rockies, on back to back weekends, both weddings being amazing, and the couples didn’t know each other at all. Sarah and Leigh are such wonderful humans. Sarah is a photographer and Leigh is a designer. Cut those two traits loose at a teepee campground in the mountains and the result is the magic you see below. Teepee’s, a sweet little pug they named Tiesto, the best desert table I’ve ever seen, and the perfect integration of their personal tastes and their rustic outdoor wedding theme. I’ll never forget my first real Canadian experience over these two weeks, it definitely wont be the last. Sarah + Leigh.

 Camping Wedding

When Kathy and Kevin asked me to document their mountain camping wedding in the Canadian Rockies, I knew I was in for a hell of a treat. From the minute I finished my skype meeting with them, I knew this wedding was going to be one of my favorites of 2014. A wedding set under a mountain in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Every inch of this place left me speechless. The guests and family were some of the kindest most warm hearted humans I’d ever met. I felt like I was photographing long lost friends from a past life. They didn’t skimp on pouring their personalities into their day either. Between their cute little camper, their thrifted/antiqued plate settings, and ending the night shot gunning beer, Kathy and Kevin did it right. It’s this kind of set up, the people, the vibe, the location, that keep me doing what I do. Thank you so much for bringing me into your lives you two.

 Seattle Engagement Photographers

Sometimes couples leave it up to me to choose the locations for their portraits or engagement sessions. Which is awesome because I can custom tailor the awesome-ness to the couple. Other times my they know exactly what they want, and when Allison and Cody said, Phil, we’d freakin’ love to have our engagement photos taken up on Rattlesnake Ridge, I just smiled and said, done and done. I’m sure you’re familiar with this magical spot if you live in the Seattle area, as it’s one of the most popular hikes within a really short driving distance from the city. It’s home to one of the most epic view points in the PNW. We knew the spot would be extra crowded with people on a Sunday so we decided to rise before the sun and claim the lookout point as our own. Sometimes waking up at 5am for an engagement session has it’s perks. Allison and Cody….

There’s something really magical about the gorge. It’s beauty is completely overwhelming. Maybe it’s because I’ve only lived here for 2 years but every hike, every trail, every view seems to take my breath away. Nico contacted me a few months ago to say he and his girlfriend were flying in from SLC to spend a few days in the PNW and how he was planning on asking her to marry him while hiking into the one of gorge’s waterfalls. I scouted out a slew of spots and found the perfect location. The day came. When I arrived I saw them getting out of their car and I tried to look like a standard 7am hiker minding my own business as I took off down the trail. We were the only people there that morning which made for an incredibly serene intimate experience. I walked quickly to my hiding spot and waited for Nico to lead his lady to the spot. It’s wild knowing what’s about to go down. Everything went perfect. She obvs said yes. I met up with them after giving them some time to soak up the moment, and we explored the magic land for some portraits. Enjoy.
