I like to remind myself to not take things too seriously sometimes…


  • jme - Oh My God! You know, this is particularly funny, because this is often how I picture you guys when you randomly pop into my mind….

  • Keri P. - hilarious!!!!

  • c - Is the whole off season going to be like this?

  • Jess - I love this! So funny.

  • Heather - That’s super funny! I love your expressions.

  • Gina - That just made my day.

You might remember my previous post on our road trip to Moclips, WA. It was a ton of fun, and it was to document Valerie + Jeff’s wedding day. Valerie really wanted a wedding in Hawaii, but due to circumstances out of her control, she couldn’t. The couple decided on Sunset Beach in Moclips, WA. If it wasn’t for the dense fog, it sure would have felt like Hawaii. Valerie pulled out all the stops with every little bit of Hawaii she could come up with; steel drum band, tiki torches, flip flops, leis, and all!! She loved planning weddings so much, she started her own business, A Vibrant Wedding by Valerie. Check it out HERE. Thanks to Casey for rockin’ this one with me!!

Thanks for a wonderful trip guys!!

[ guests of Jeff + Valerie’s wedding can go HERE to view their photos ]

And in case you missed my sneak peak, here are three of my fave’s with the super-duper, crazy-awesome TILT SHIFT!! (you complete me tilt shift)

  • erin - Oh my goodness, they are even more beautiful than I could have imagined.

    If you didn’t have the fog then you would never have captured my absolute favorite shot, 4th down, and I love 5th down as well.

    Congrats Val!!!!

  • Kim - amazing!! SO moody, i love it. I especially love the photo of the three girls walking down the beach.

  • Meg - Gorgeous!

  • Amy - Oh, man…if I could have a wedding do-over, I would hire you in a heartbeat! I wish I knew more about you when I got married…your work is exquisite!

    –amy (j’s friend)

  • Amy - (BTW, Casey, you do nice work, too!)

  • Jane - Hi Kim,
    My name is Jane and I’m with Dwellable.
    I was looking for blogs about Glacier Springs to share on our site and I came across your post…If you’re open to it, shoot me an email at jane(at)dwellable(dot)com.
    Hope to hear from you soon!

Here is a peak at Kara + Steve’s portraits from their wedding on 9.6.08. These two were so into each other, they barely noticed the crazy girl with the camera! ;)

In other business, I’m click-clacking away over here in my office. If your wedding was in September, you will see your photos by mid-late October (think 30 days from your wedding date). Thanks for being patient!

Hope all is well over there in your part of this crazy planet!!

While we didn’t start a revolution, or ride 8 thousand miles across South America on a Motorcycle in hopes of experiencing the world…

we sure covered a lot of San Juan Island on our little mopeds. There were no lepers or social injustice on our ride, just beautiful landscapes and the wind in our hair.

Casey + I spent a weekend on San Juan Island last weekend. After photographing a wedding, we spent a little time enjoying the last bits of summer.

And if you haven’t seen The Motorcyle Diaries (my favorite movie OF ALL TIME!) Get out there and rent it!

“Let the world change you, and you can change the world.”

  • c money - Great shots, Sweets. Next time were renting the moped car.

  • Deann B. - Oh wow, Kim! These are beautiful!! You are making me so excited for my Seattle trip! :)

  • Heather - Beautiful pictures Kim! Looks like you guys had a great time too.

  • Jess - Love the Motorcycle Diaries, love your photos even more!

  • Kim - OH MAI! your landscape photos with that TSE are AMAzing! the ride looks like it was SO much fun! jealous!

  • Keri P. - Beautiful, I would love to hang a few of those awesome landscapes on my living room wall!
