It all started at Bob’s! I remember hearing Sara and Tim share their story over beer and ciders as they bounced back and forth telling us how they met, and laughing so hard that it was in the most normal spot and yet so wonderful!! He saw her through the window and had to meet her. End of story! Fast forward to their winter Suncadia wedding – between rain and a snowy morning after – Sara and Tim invited their families and closest friends to celebrate their vows. It was the perfect blend of destination and intimate PNW! Guests were able to mentally check out of their busy lives and enter into mountain time – to relax and enjoy the greenery!
Thank you Sara and Tim – we were absolutely honored to capture your wedding!!

I can’t believe year three of PhotoLUSH is in the books! PhotoLUSH is a photography conference for all of the talented photographers we have in Bellingham and the region. The conference was born out of a trip Clint and I took to Vegas several years ago for a big national conference (WPPI has 10-15,000 photographers gathered together). On our way back to the PNW we started thinking about the talent and potential of a fantastic event that could be held right here in Bellingham. Pretty sure it started on an airline napkin. It’s an absolute blast and a whole lot of humbling to be able to be a part of curating, teaching, inspiring and bringing the community together. As the old saying goes, ‘A rising tide lifts all boats’ (a saying Kennedy made famous). It really is an awesome sight, seeing a bunch of competitors come together to encourage, inspire and teach each other! That can’t be normal. I can’t imagine Coke and Pepsi hanging out together, sharing best practices! I thought I’d share a few images that Meg and I captured through the event to give you a look inside the event.
There is a lot of thanks to be handed out in making this event come together!! Here is a list of some of the amazing vendors that helped make PhotoLUSH an amazing reality! We trusted all of them for a reason and strongly encourage you to check them out if you are need of their services!!
