A Rose in the Daffodils

A couple weeks back, we took Katie Rose up to these amazing daffodil fields just North of our home in Snohomish County.  She was sporting her pretty Easter Dress as she ran and jumped and posed for the camera.  She is growing up too fast.  We watch her everyday changing from a little baby into a little lady.  I like this set of images.  They really capture her spirit in the beautiful late afternoon sunlight – hope you enjoy them too!

Ashley & Louis ~ Engagement

RLP met up with Ashley and Louis last Saturday, 4/12, for one of our most scenic Engagement Sessions ever!  We photographed the couple at the Kirkland Waterfront & the University of Washington Arboretum on a sunny, crystal clear day with just the right amount of cloud cover to make the pictures turn out perfectly! While on the Kirkland Waterfront, the owners of the Classic Wooden Yacht the MV Olympus allowed us to board & shoot on part of their ship.  It is a marvel of craftsmanship from a time long ago & we wanted to thank the owners for their wonderful hospitality!  Hard to go wrong with Ashley & Louis anyway – get them in front of the camera, and they are totally relaxed & natural – made our job easy!  They met about 5 years ago, and have been going strong ever since!  They like traveling, going on walks, going to Mariner Games and hanging out at the Belltown Billiards in Seattle (Ashley said she has recently been ‘dragging’ Louis to yoga classes too!).   Their big day is coming up in July at Rock Creek Gardens in Puyallup!  Until then, please join me on Congratulating Ashley & Louis on their Engagement!

    Christine & Tony ~ Wedding

    Talk about the perfect Snohomish Wedding!  Jennifer & I were honored to photograph Christine & Tony’s Wedding at Swans Trail Farms on 04/05/14 and were so grateful to work with other great vendors from Snohomish!  First off, Swans Trail Farms is AMAZING!  We have worked at this venue many times before, and it never ceases to amaze me how it gives us wonderful new photographic opportunities every time – even on a rainy day in early April!  Christine looked absolutely stunning in her Wedding dress from LaineeMeg Bridal  (we just couldn’t stop photographing her – when she stepped out for the couple’s ‘first look’ moment she literally too our breath away – and Tony’s too)!  Tony also looked very debonair in his Tux courtesy of The Men’s WearhouseFlowers By Tiffany provided the perfect elements of floral style and color to Christine & Tony’s Wedding and helped the gray day to come alive (they are one of the best florists we know).  Cabbage Patch Catering Restaurant & Catering (who always serve up culinary excellence) dished up lasagna, baked chicken, salad and veggies that were to die for! Equally as delicious was the Wedding Cake, which was actually made at Swans Trail by The Cake Walk Shop.  DK with Pro DJ Sound  made it all flow smoothly, got the crowd on their feet and helped everyone dance the night away! And of course we can’t forget the provider of libations for the evening, Snohomish Beer & Wine, who poured & served in style all night long!  The day was AMAZING, and the rain made it even more special!  Tony & Christine and their friends and family were so relaxed and great to work with – it was a perfect Wedding!  Congratulations again to our happy couple & here’s hoping the honeymoon in Hawaii was as incredible as your Wedding Day (and wishing you both many happy years together from Rose-Lily)!

    Dave & Lisa ~ Couple Session

    I caught up with Dave & Lisa out on Camano Island on 3/29 to shoot a wonderful Couple Session on a rainy Pacific Northwest afternoon!  We went to this really cool park with deserted barns and stables that provided some shelter (& beautiful light) for the parts of our shoot where the rain was too heavy to shoot in.  Dave & Lisa are both natives to the Pacific Northwest (born & raised) and have been together for over 23 years.  After a first date at Azteca Mexican Restaurant (love their nachos!), they next went dancing on New Years Eve in 1989 and the rest is history!  After marrying, Dave and Lisa had two sons, both now adults and serving in the Armed Forces.  Dave is a State Representative in Olympia and also works for local law enforcement and Lisa works at their church as a pre-school teacher.  They have one granddaughter and another on the way!  Working with them was so much fun and we had a great day of photography in the rain!  Here’s wishing Dave and Lisa a happy marriage for another 23 years!
