On a rainy day in the Pacific Northwest, two sisters (you remember Allison), their mom and new husbands holding umbrellas in tow, made it through the murky and dank woods, down a very old trail to some remote old growth forest for an unforgettable bridal session. If you’ve never been in an old growth forest, it’s a sensory experience that you’ll not soon forget. The sound of rain coming through the canopy far above, the scent of pine sap, and the rustle of critters vying for a dry place are all part of it, but it also encompasses a totality that is calming in a way that defies explanation. Having been a desert dweller for the past six years, coming back to this particular forest was a trip back in time, almost like coming home as I’d spent the better part of my youth combing this forest and could have navigated the trail blindfolded. We stopped at the remnants of an outdoor chapel, carved out of wind-fallen trees 15 years earlier by my friend who owns this many hundred acre tree farm and is the epitome of sustainable and renewable resources. The chapel, now overgrown with moss and ferns, was where he was married and it was the second wedding I’d ever photographed. Coming back with two stunning sisters was both a rewind and a look forward.

Special thanks to the Clyde Tree Farm and Crystal Hart for hair and Makeup excellence.

Heading up to the Kitsap Peninsula to photograph the wedding of the daughter of an old friend was very much a trip back into time. With the ceremony at the very chapel I went to as a kid, and the area surrounding it having barely changed, it drew up long forgotten memories. Along with the scent of salt water and a heavily laden pine forest, were the familiar sounds of people coming together to celebrate the marriage of two of the nicest people I have ever met. With one cow¬† and one donkey as wedding crashers, the party moved to 20 acres of Pacific Northwest farm and continued into the night. I saw some old friends I hadn’t spoken with in over 30 years and made some new ones as well. The best part? I’m going back in a couple weeks to do it all over again for her lovely sister Sara’s wedding.
