Gina & Ross get hitched in Everett

It was a cold and blustery day when I stepped out of Narrative Coffee to go meet Gina & Ross. We had planned to meet up outside the Courthouse in downtown Everett an hour before their appointment with the Judge. The plan was to do some outdoor portraits of the couple before we headed inside. That was the plan, but the reality was it was freezing cold, 30 degrees to be exact, and what little warmth the sun had brought that day was receding fast. Would they still be up for it?

Where do I even begin with this one? This wedding has been almost three years in the making for me. In January 2015 I shot Janie & Garry's engagement photos at the Gleneagles golf course and now almost three years later they had me back to shoot their beautiful wedding!

What a difference a year makes.

What a difference a year makes.

One year. 365 days. 525,600 minutes. How do you measure a year?

One year ago I brought home my first ever dog. Yes he was Tim’s also but he was the first dog I’d ever had that was mine. I was so happy. I didn’t think my heart could contain my love for him. Which is why it hurt all the more less than two months later when it broke.

So long sunshine

So long sunshine

been in Spain for the past 8 days. First was 4 days in Barcelona and then 4 days in Alicante. Barcelona was the "do things" part and Alicante was the "do nothing" part and they both fulfilled their tasks dutifully. Now I have to leave 80 degree sunsoaked weather tomorrow to head back to 60 and rainy weather in Seattle.
