Marlyce and Seth had such a great local, intimate wedding with close family and friends in their hometown of Seattle. I spent all night talking with various family members, meeting the staff of 10 Degrees and Oola Distillery, and watching the dance floor cycle through some seriously entertaining couples and fun music. It was a night to remember, that’s for sure! Marlyce and Seth were considerate of every possible need I might’ve had (parking is a serious consideration if you’re going to get around), and were gracious when I gave them a quick dance lesson at the top of the water tower before dashing off to be married. The last photo shows major improvement in their dip kiss. So proud!

Marlyce and Seth, I’m so honored to have met you and documented your engagement and wedding day. Your families are amazing, the kiddos were hilarious, and the food was delicious! Thank you for the wonderful experience – I can’t wait for more! Cheers to you newlyweds!

Sweet Myles turned one on the loveliest day in March. He was blessed with two wonderful parties at their family church and at home with extended family and friends. The Hawaiian theme was so fun! They’ll be ready for their family trip to Hawaii now! Myles and Brooklyn have grown so quickly, it feels as if I was just taking each of their newborn pictures. Now, they’re sporting the best head of curly hair I’ve ever seen, along with having the sweetest personalities, and amazing parents. I’m quite certain I’ve documented the Smith family more than any other family I work with, and I’ve literally been able to watch and capture everything from their wedding, to babies, and birthday parties – it’s been so amazing! Although I say that every single time, I am genuinely honored.

Happiest 1st birthday Myles Robert, I can’t wait to see what more is in store for you and your whole family. Quite a tribe!

We couldn’t have asked for a better, warmer day in February to celebrate the engagement of Marlyce and Seth. We squeezed through the crowds at Pike’s Place, warmly greeted by throwing fish. We tucked into their apartment just after that to rest our smiling faces and get ready for a run – them, not me, of course, that would’ve looked funny with my big camera in my face trying to run! They are so cute and it was so fun to talk about Seattle living and their running life. He proposed to her on a run, so you could say it’s a big part of who they are and will even be included in their wedding – so exciting!

Thanks Marlyce and Seth for having me document this time for you. You’re both quite an inspiration in your active life and as a couple. I am very much looking forward to your wedding in just a few short weeks! I’m going to go run now.
