Late last summer I got asked to capture this intimate backyard wedding for Joel and Robert. It was the perfect setting with family and close friends to celebrate their love.

The setting was absolutely gorgeous with a scenic view of the Cascade Mountains and the perfect golden hour. I got to watch this beautiful event through my lens and capture love, laughs, and tears. That is what it’s all about for me. Not getting all the staged (while those are important too) and perfect shots but to capture real emotion that will bring back all the feelings of that perfect day.
