It's pretty crazy to think about, but I've known Drew since he was born. As the son of my baton twirling coach, he was present as a little tyke running around me in circles at my lessons and consequently attended many baton twirling competitions that I competed in. His mom was like a second mother to me and we've been close with their family for as long as I can remember. What's even more remarkable is to see how Drew has grown up to be quite the young man. As the quarterback on his high school football team who has been to State multiple times, a basketball player, and a member of a State Championship baseball team, he sure keeps busy at Northwest Christian. I flew down to Arizona to take his senior photos last month and am thrilled with how they turned out. We spent a morning exploring his high school's athletic fields and then moved over to downtown Glendale for some fun urban shots. Congratulations on your upcoming graduation Drew, we know you'll achieve so much in your life!

Last summer I pulled a double header weekend with one of the craziest treks in between locations: Olympic National Park to Leavenworth. It was a doozy! That being said, both weddings turned out beyond beautiful and somehow I barely even noticed how tired I was. I shared the Leavenworth wedding a while back but am excited to share this beauty today! Stephen and Jenny are two pretty amazing individuals. Stephen is a part of the Australian military and Jenny is a flight attendant. Chance brought these two together when they ended up meeting each other in Hawaii. While their lives can be at times a bit crazy with their demanding travel schedules, love perseveres. They were fortunate enough to come together get married up at Lake Crescent Lodge in Olympic National Park near where Jenny grew up. The scenery was beyond stunning. A quaint lodge is nestled right next to the turquoise lake with plenty of cabin lodging for guests. We had beautiful weather all day as Stephen and Jenny said their vows, then hopped into a canoe post-ceremony. We finished off the evening with a stunning sunset shoot by the lake. It was one fabulous gathering of family and friends that I'm sure these two will never forget.
