On a recent trip to Michigan my lovely friends Jill and Amanda took me out to experience "The Bowl" near Holland and all of it's wondrous glory. After lying in the sun and hiking through the sandy hills, I made new friends in Grand Rapids over tacos, whiskey, two adorable kittens, and a sunset from the magical Secret City. Amanda also took me up to New Haven as well where I drank in more of that giant beautiful lake - it left me wishing I had more time to explore.

Thank you friends old and new for your sweet hospitality and giving me a taste of your glorious state!  To quote Lord Huron, I will be back one day.

Each year WPPI holds a massive wedding photographer conference in Las Vegas. This was my first year attending and I was thrilled to hang out with a ridiculously talented crew of photographers. There was a surprise wedding vow renewal, a clown-car-packed ride out to the desert, a mega dance party at Lazers & Blazers, confetti that followed everyone home, and a little Henney. Thank you friends for all of the shenanigans and the permanent smile that hasn't left my face - you guys are a total blessing.

A couple frames from Bolivia, the rest around the greater Seattle area

I've fallen in love with Impossible Project film, the punch of the Lomo LC-A+, and (again) with the simplicity of an iPhone (although it obviously doesn't fit into the film category).

Orcas Island Shenanigans

Part of the fun of wedding season is not only photographing your own weddings that you booked, but tagging along to second shoot for other rad photographers in the Seattle community. Shoda Love had me out to Orcas Island last weekend to assist a wedding for a super sweet couple, and I couldn't help but snap the gorgeous Orcas Island goodness... and miss Bethany. Thanks for the shenanigans Shodas!

PS - A little iPhone was mixed in.

"Proud Auntie" is listed in my About Me section for a reason - I love my little niece more than words can fully express. She lights up my life with her echoing laughter, giant hugs, and two-year-old honest opinions. It is such a blessing to have her in my life and watch her discover this big big world.
