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).

Ashley+Craig // Vineyard Wedding in Walla Walla Washington

 

Ah, you guys. This wedding. This day was so beautiful in every single way imaginable. From the gorgeous home the bridal party got ready in to the golden sunset later that evening. The venue was goals, flowers were on point, dress was FIRE and Ashley looked amazing in it, details were so perfect for this summer vineyard wedding and most importantly this couple. Ashley and Craig are two of the sweetest and funniest people and it was very obvious that they were SO exciting to be getting married and were having the absolute best day together. 

Just a warning, these photos will make you miss summer.

Carson+Alex // Snoqualmie, WA Engagement Session

I LOVE engagement sessions. This one was extra special because Carson is a good friend and 1/4 of Bixby+Pine, my favorite wedding planners! We did their session in Snoqualmie, WA with Mt. Si as our backdrop. We got a little bit of moody Washington state weather with some rain but had so much fun taking these photos.
