Good morning all, and a very happy Monday! I am sleepily drinking my morning cup o’ Joe trying to wake as I write this post. I got home late last night from a wonderful weekend in Seattle filled with wedded bliss & family, it was quite the whirlwind of a trip. Typically, when i fly i don’t encounter any major issues however this time; it appears all my flight karma was used up. We experienced a 4 hour flight delay getting off the tarmac here in Baltimore due to summer storms. Around hour 2 and half, they finally pulled back in and let us off the plane! Thank goodness as my iPad was nearly dead at this point and it’s a long flight to Seattle. As I am sure you all know, a flight delay causes a ripple effect and plans often suffer, and by plans I mean my dinner plans with my dearest friend Katelyn. Finally made it safe and sound on the west coast around 10:30 that night – got to my hotel around 11:30 and sluggishly carried my bags to the 4th floor of the Tulalip Resort & Casino only to realized I was sleeping in one of the most fantastic hotel room I have ever been in… Thank you Katy & Matt for that great treat! If you ever need a space to stay in northern Western Washington check this place out.


The Next morning was pure Washington perfection. Sunny, blue skies, light fluffy clouds and a cool breeze… a Perfect Day for a wedding. Katy & I go way back and it was truly an honor to photographer her wedding at Tazer Valley Farm, a day full of sunshine, rain, heartfelt vows and family. Here is a little sneak Peek of their wedding. These two were amazing and were more than willing to brave the light rain!


photo After the wedding, I made the 3.5 hour trek to what felt like the northern most point of Washington (it was close enough) to spend the rest of the weekend with my parents and sisters family. To put it into perspective or really how far north I was, you could see Canada from the sandy shores of the straights. Although I was only there for 1 full day, we made the best of it. We cooked breakfast at the campsite, built sand castles and hunted for shells, watched surfers, drank wine and of course made s’mores. I only get to see my family once maybe twice a year so I tried to soak it all in.
