I can’t believe I’m already shooting engaged couples who are getting married in 2010, next year is practically around the corner!  I’m super excited for Carrie + Nathan’s wedding next July.  Aren’t they cute?

  • Kim - LOVE as always! i totally dig the pics in the field with the little ball ‘o weed sticking up. fantastic!

  • Kim - and how do you consistently have skies like that?? not fair!

  • James - You know your clouds.

  • Jenna Close - hey kim, not sure if you remember me from AIS or not. i think you were exiting soon after i got there…in any case, these photos from your last post were so frickin’ cool i had to write and say kudos. love the work. hope all is well.

  • Heather - Awesome as usual! My favorites are the 1st, 5th & 6th photos.

  • Carrie - Yay I’m glad we rescheduled for this date – the clouds were truly perfect! Thank you again!

  • ryan flynn - when i saw those two of them under the flower+clouds… i was all like “oh snap!”. that’s a good thing.

  • Claire - omg kim, those shots with the flower curving up and around them? AMAZING.

Here are a few of my favorite moments from Tova and Matt’s sweet wedding day in Maple Valley.  My computer work is overwhelming right now, so my poor blog will have to take a back seat for a few weeks while I play catch up.

    That balloon head decor is so rad, I would have grabbed him for a few shots of that :)

Abby and Dan are a sweet couple who travel the world together, and have a super fun + informative blog about their adventures.  Check it out HERE.  (as if I needed another blog to add to my blog reader- but I couldn’t resist)

Their wedding day was full of heart felt words, colorful details, sunset boat rides, and crazy moves on the dance floor.  A perfect day?  Yes.
