Wedding: Laura & Wil

I wanted to share a few shots from Laura and Wil’s awesome wedding at the Seattle Design Center. Thanks to Laura and Wil for being so fun and laid back, and for having me photograph your wedding!

A huge thanks also to the amazing Theo Stroomer for all his help second shooting!

Just One…

Xander just celebrated his first birthday last weekend and I fell in love with this one photo of him from the party and just had to post it…

Engaged: Maricel & Adam

I’m so looking forward to Maricel & Adam’s wedding–I had so much fun getting to know them at their engagement shoot!



Went up to see the tulips a while back with my pal Renata. I developed a full-blown parrot tulip obsession.



Fourth Birthday

I had the pleasure of photographing Olive’s 4th birthday recently. It was at the very pretty Trophy Cupcakes party room and Olive’s mom, the amazing Shannon of Sublime Events, put together the sweetest fourth birthday I’d ever seen. Lovely party decor and details by Heathoriginal, magic tricks by Joe Black, and pink pink pink everywhere!

Where I’ve Been

I’ve been taking some time off. Had a bunch of family come to visit. Went to the coast. It’s been awesome.

Engaged: Natalie & Kevin

Natalie and Kevin got engaged at Bainbridge Island’s gorgeous Bloedel Reserve and that’s the spot they chose for their engagement photos. I’d never been there before and it was breathtakingly beautiful–fall leaves, mossy trees, and all kinds of pretty little nooks and corners. And these two were such troupers–we hiked all over the place and even when it started raining they powered on and when we got to the spot where Kevin proposed…a rainbow appeared!  It was a great way to get to know them better and it made me so excited for their wedding at Clise Mansion next year.

October 27th is…Get Hitched Give Hope!

Photos by La Vie Photography

So this Thursday (tomorrow!) is Get Hitched give Hope! If you don’t know about the event, it’s a fun way to shop for your wedding all while supporting a great cause. It’s an amazing evening of fun, food, drinks…plus you can buy gorgeous jewelry, bid on wedding stuff like florists, photographers, wedding gowns, favors, and more. So many things you need for your wedding all in one place, plus, it’s a great way to meet in person with a whole ton of vendors. I met my fabulous wedding couple Leigha & Tim there last year. Plus, the money you spend goes to support a wonderful cause–this year it’s the Dream Foundation and the Young Survival Coalition. I’ll have an engagement session plus guestbook in the silent auction; you can see the whole lineup of items up for auction and raffle here (and don’t forget that you can score some serious deals–many items go for half their retail price!).

So put on your party shoes and I’ll see you there tomorrow, Thursday the 27th, at 6:00pm at the Four Seasons Hotel downtown!
