There’s a lot of things to love about photographing weddings; the light, the decor, the scenery, the outfits. I am a sucker for good light and beautiful things. What fills my soul though is when I get photograph people with really beautiful hearts.

Katie & Louis have really beautiful hearts indeed. And they’ve immersed themselves in a community of equally beautiful-hearted people. I know this because of the way I watched their people interact with each other, the way they celebrated Katie and Louis, and (most personally touching of all) the way they treated me with such kindness, bringing me food and cupcakes, offering me water and places to sit and rest my feet.

Katie is the kind of person who continually peppers your name into conversation when she’s talking to you as if to say, “I see you. I acknowledge you. I’m with you.” And Louis is kind and gentle and loving. It’s always such a beautiful thing to be let into the lives of people on such a meaningful day in their lives. That privilege is compounded ten fold when it’s in the presence of people who choose to be so gratefully and joyfully engaged with the entire experience of their day. Having a front row seat to that is something I treasure.

So, dear bloggity friends, allow me to take you back to an August day high up in the mountains when Katie & Louis invited all their closest friends to take part in their festive flannel wedding at Arctic Valley. Enjoy!

Three cheers to the amazing vendors who helped pull off this wedding, including Jen Bersh from Salon Davinci, the gorgeous cakery workings of From Scratch Baking Co., catering from Two Fat Guys, behind the scenes help from Salmonberry Tours, and the unparalleled entertainment from Blackwater Railroad Company.

My books are open for this year and this summer. If you’re picking up anything I’m puttin’ down, reach out and let’s talk sugar!

All my love,
