Alicia and Robert | PNW Elopement

Alicia and Robert had a beautiful yet simplistic vision for their wedding. They wanted a gorgeous setting, appreciate an edgy and moody vibe for images, and wanted to keep it intimate. Their trust in me with location and lighting allowed me to fulfill some bucket list dreams I’ve had for some time.

Let me tell you about these two lovelies. Their warmth and gracious hearts were a constant. Their chemistry was intrinsically palpable. When you have this level of chemistry, the energy, the vibes, the connection are so implicit that even from a distance you recognize the rarity. They are drawn to each other in the most natural way.

To watch Alicia and Robert be married by her dad surrounded by their closest family and friends, including their sweet little boy, Mason, continues to leave me pinching myself that this is what I do. These two let me into one of the most sacred moments of their lives and gave me their trust. My gratitude cannot be overstated.

On top of their incredibly genuine hearts and chemistry, they were also complete badasses and got wet and muddy climbing on huge rocks and behind the waterfall after their ceremony.

So many warm wishes and congratulations to these two and I can’t wait for our next adventure together!
