The first time I met Nate and Sarah was at a park-and-ride in July 2018. I got in their car and we drove north. We chatted the whole way and it was so easy to be around them – like they had been my friends for a long time. We stopped for Mexican food before arriving at Deception Pass. Sarah and Nate popped some celebratory champagne and then we wandered around stopping in the best spots for photos. I truly love these two and can’t wait for their wedding in a few weeks. A few of my favorite photos from their session below.
I loved this wedding. Loved it! Hands down one of my favorites from 2018. Hannah and Tristan’s day began with getting ready at the Palladian Hotel followed by photos in Volunteer Park on Capitol Hill. Their ceremony was held at the coolest church, and the day wrapped up with a spectacular reception at Sculpture Park overlooking the Olympic Mountains and Puget Sound. This day was gorgeous. They also had one hell of a dance party! Thankful for a job I love and clients who rock!
Here are some of the talented vendors who helped make this day possible. A special shout out to Michele for being such a great second shooter. A few of the shots above are hers!

Twenty eighteen. My best year yet! The birth of my son, Warner Jon Pearson made things pretty special, but this was also my favorite year professionally. Pregnancy allowed for a lighter workload, which led to a more balanced lifestyle.
On the wedding front, I took jobs I was passionate about and worked with some absolutely amazing vendors. From a personal perspective, I was able to attend 3 weddings as a guest, be a bridesmaid for my best friend, and spent more time with family than any other summer in recent memory.
Some of my favorite moments this year included tearful first looks from grooms and dads, a surprise saxophone serenade of “Isn’t She Lovely”, hilarious and sentimental toasts, and so much joy all around. I am so proud of the work I created this past year, and am thankful to the brides, grooms, and families that made it all possible. It will be hard to top, but I look forward to what 2019 holds!
Below are a few (ok 75) of my favorite images from this past year. Enjoy!
