Small and intimate wedding celebrations are always so sweet and special, such was the case with Shawn and Heidi’s spring wedding at The Corson Building.  The two lovebirds invited just a few of their closest friends and family and celebrated their union with great food and lots of laughter.

Below are just a very few of my favorites.  I’m signing out to enjoy my birthday weekend!

(check out Heidi in that dress!  gorgeous!)


  • saleina epperson - SOOoooo pretty, Kim. I love looking at your stuff… it’s pure eye candy!

Michael and Danielle had a romantic ceremony in a historic church that overlooked the sea.  They spent the rest of the day celebrating with friends and family, drank sangria at sunset, and danced into the evening.   Yep, it was pretty much a perfect day.

Here are just a few of my favorites…

Eric and Erin flew all the way from Scottsdale, AZ to elope at the amazing Treehouse Point in Issaquah.  Neither of them had spent much time in the northwest, they just happened to come across my blog post from last november and were in love with the landscape.  Of course it was raining, but there really isn’t a more magical place to get married than next to a roaring river surrounded by a canopy of moss covered trees.

These two are so sweet; I feel so honored to have been a witness. ♥

  • Tom - No freaking way!!! This looks VERY familiar! ;) You may be able to start a new niche market for wedding photography. Glad I was able to start a trend. Great work as always.

  • Jodie - Amazing as always :)

  • Winnie Forbes - organic, simple and gorgeous.

  • Katy - This is my very best friend in the whole world. Since she eloped I was so happy she was hiring an amazing photographer so we could all share it with her:) These are amazing! Thank you for helping me feel like I was there.

  • Marie L - The pictures tell a really beautiful and moving story. Very inspiring. Thank you!

  • Thomas - Awesome photography here, it’s like some enchanted forest wedding photography! :)

Two beautiful brides + a historic barn + plenty of great friends and family= a hands down hoedown!

I was so honored to be a part of Carrie and Chelsey’s union this past September.  There were so many incredible moments that happened that day, I often caught myself wanting to switch over to video mode.   Some of my favorite moments: a dance down the aisle to Hall and Oates, a rap speech by Chelsey’s brother, a heartfelt performance by Carrie of Total Eclipse to Chelsey,  and a live performance by my favortite northwest artist, Sera Cahoone.  (the woodfire pizza and mini donut stand were a hit, too!)
