Salty's on Alki // Andy + Wuen // Seattle Wedding Photographer Samantha McFarlen

Being on Alki Beach for a wedding just gave me a cool feeling--I don't know if I can really describe it, but it just felt good. It’s the cutest little beachy town within Seattle with the most amazing view of the city skyline. I’m not from the city and to be honest, Seattle stresses me out a little bit so being able to admire it from a distance is awesome. Andy + Wuen's engagement photos were some of my favorites so I was looking forward to this day for quite a while, and when you see her dress change and her Grace Loves Lace dress, you might have to pick your jaw up off the floor...I know I did!

aMaurice Cellars // Alexa + Westy // Walla Walla, Washington // Walla Wall Wedding Photographer Samantha McFarlen

This wedding is a favorite of mine first off, because I LOVE this venue ( aMaurice Cellars in Walla Walla, WA) but also this couple and MY GOD, this sunset. All the good feels, all the good vibes. Oh, and the food was freaking bomb.

Alexa + Westy are super fun, really sweet, and affectionate (which paired nicely with this dreamy vineyard setting on a perfect summer day in eastern Washington).

Vantage Engagement Session // Andy + Wuen // Eastern Washington Wedding Photographer // Samantha McFarlen

Andy + Wuen made my job easy. Let's start with a little bit about them: They lead worship together and music is BIG part of their relationship. These two are kind and sweet, and really stylish. Andy used to work in the women's shoe department of Nordies, and I secretly wanted him to be my personal shopper and help re-do my entire wardrobe. Accepting applications now, BTW.

I'm gonna make this short and sweet: Vanessa + Ryan are my kinda people. They're laid back, say-what's-on-your-mind kinda people, who wanna celebrate and party with their friends and family. I can't wait to show you the whole wedding, but in the meantime, here you go!
