Anna & Dylan’s Lakeside Wedding | Mayfield Lake, WA

Oh the warm fuzzies! I had the joy of shooting Anna’s senior portraits several years ago, and I was beyond thrilled when she contacted me to tell me she was marrying her high school sweetheart!

Dylan & Anna have what I like to refer to as “the magic”. When you are around them, you just KNOW they are meant to be together. They are better together than they were apart (which was pretty fantastic!). It was just a delight to be with them and their sweet friends & family as they said I do! The bridal party was so much fun to be around and genuinely loved their friends. It was so fun!

Enjoy the Sneek Peek!

Amanda & Tom | Timberline Lodge Mt. Hood Engagement Session

As soon as Amanda mentioned that they may want to head up to the snow for their engagement session, my heart got all kinds of giddy! We planned and set the date, and wouldn’t you know it…in typical Pacific Northwest fashion, the forecast called for nothing put a down pour of rain all the way up the mountain on the day of the shoot! We decided to go for it anyway, and get cozy in the lodge if the rain didn’t let up, and that’s exactly what we did.

Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood is just about a cozy as it gets, with it’s woodsy feel, giant fireplaces, and giant windows peeking out at the beautiful snow covered trees. They cuddled right up to get warm before we headed out for a few snowy photos, despite the drizzle. Amanda and Tom took the rain in stride…after 8 years together of ups and downs of life, this little set back did not dampen their spirits at all. They smiled anyway and enjoyed the moment.

I’m so excited to be the lucky one to capture the big day coming up in September, when the say “I do!”.

Julie - These are so fun, Eryn! Nice job!!

Jared & Laura | UC Berkeley Botanical Gardens Wedding | Redwood Ampitheater |

One of my biggest adventures this year in my business was getting to travel outside of the Pacific Northwest for a beautiful California Bay Area wedding!

Of course, it had not rained in months in Northern California, and the weather decided Jared & Laura’s wedding day was the perfect time to sprinkle some rain…but Laura & Jared just calmly smiled and knew, come rain or shine, they’d be happy to say I do under the lovely Redwoods in the UC Berkeley Botanical Garden Ampitheater.

And, our day was blessed, and the rain stopped just as we began our photography time, and held off through the afternoon. It was a perfectly sweet day, with a perfectly sweet couple. Enjoy the peek into Jared and Laura’s beautiful wedding day at the UC Berkley Botanical Gardens, followed by a gorgeous reception to celebrate at the Tilden Park Brazilian Room.  Laura had the most beautiful fall florals on her tables at the reception, with the sweetest subtle touches of rustic comfort and the most delicious spread of yummy sweets and treats! The day couldn’t be any sweeter, and I once again, I cannot believe my blessings. I love my job!

Natalie & Richard | Historic Red Cross Building Wedding | Vancouver, Wa Wedding Photography

These two are just as kind, gentle, and sweet as can be. They fell in love at West Point Academy, and knew they couldn’t live without each other. Though they’ve spent some time living distanced apart, their love has continued to grow into a beautiful thing.

A rainy spring day in the Pacific Northwest did not dampen spirits one bit…we found some cover under the historic buildings lovely covered porches (one of my favorite areas of Vancouver!) and enjoyed the moment of their First Look. Natalie glowed with a gentle beauty that was stunning, and he was dashing as ever in his military dress uniform.  We even snuck off in the drizzle for a few romantic moments at the end of the day. Enjoy the sweetness of Natalie & Richard!

What to Wear for family photos- How I planned and shopped for our family

We are blessed to be having our family photos done on Wednesday, with a friend of mine who is also a photographer. (Photographer tip- make friends! We are swapping family sessions, my family in the morning, hers in the evening. We both get great family photos without having to use our self timers!) But,Oh my goodness, we just took planning what to wear for family photos to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL!! It’s always tough for moms to coordinate outfits to look good, represent all the personalities in the family, but NOT be matchy match! Gone are the days of the white shirts and jeans that have been popular in day’s past…we are beyond that people! But, HELLO, planning outfits for 7 people, takes a little bit of work.

Here’s how I started. I had purchased this sweet little dress from Matilda Jane a few months ago, because I loved the fresh breezy colors and new it would be great for our updated family photos with the twins included (yay!) . Because it has lots of colors, I knew it would be a great piece to tie a lot of others together and give me options for complimentary colors.

NEXT- I pinned a few things on Pinterest to get my juices flowing. Then I marched into Old Navy with my Matilda Jane Cake Walk tank dress in hand (since I was using it to tie all 7 outfits together),WITHOUT KIDS and spent a good bit of time there, because I knew they had options for our whole family in one stop (THANK YOU OLD NAVY!). I first stopped in the Women’s Dept, and loaded my cart with options for myself. It sounds selfish to shop for your self first, but I really think the family photos are for MOM, who are we kidding? And, I won’t use a photo on my wall, if I hate how I look/feel in it. So, my suggestion is to find something you feel lovely and happy in, because it will show on your face in your photos. I settled on a pretty “poppy” colored gauzy flowy shirt (honestly, because I didn’t want to go sleeveless and didn’t want something tight fitting) and some of the white Rock Star skinny jeans. I love these jeans! They are super stretchy and forgiving, and they have a decent rise, so there’s no flashing when I bend over to pick up my littles. I’ve never done white before, and it’s probably a terrible idea with babies/kids, but it felt summery with the shirt I chose. I accented with a few turquoise colored jewelry pieces that I picked up at Old Navy for less than $5 each! That made me super happy and added a nice pop of color to the coral colored shirt.

Then I cruised through all the other departments, hitting the sale/clearance areas first to see if there was anything there that would work first, and then picking up pieces in the right colors, mixing and matching until I found a combination I felt good about for everyone and my budget. I was REALLY trying to stick to under $150 for the whole family…and I’m happy to say, with mixing in the few pieces I had at home (some shorts for Dad, and baby boy, and biggest boy) and an Old Navy coupon, I was able to get everything I needed for $131.00! Outfits for 6 (since I already had the Matilda Jane dress) for $131, was a win in my book!
MY TIPS FOR PLANNING YOUR OUTFITS:

Go with an idea of a color palette you’re hoping for, or look ahead at the stores website to see what is in season to get your juices flowing. If you have a item you love and want to coordinate with, take it with you!

Set a budget! It’s easy to get out of control and just start tossing things into your cart!

Go ALONE. Leave the kiddos at home with dad or grandma. Nothing more frustrating than making decisions while wrangling children, and trying to keep them out of the clothing racks!

PICK MOMS OUTFIT FIRST. Just do it. You’ll be glad you did, I promise!

Go when you are not in a huge rush to get to another place. I literally spent 2 hours in Old Navy. It was nice to feel relaxed while I perused my options.

Save your receipts! You can always return what you don’t use!

Plan for this, so you don’t feel guilty about spending the money. Save up for it if you need to. I think it’s an investment in capturing this sweet season of your family life, so celebrate it and have fun!what we will wear... What to Wear for family photos  How I planned and shopped for our family
