I’m known for capturing those didn’t-know-you-were-there shots and busting a move on the dance floor just to get those perfect candids. I also work with you to ensure we incorporate your style and story into your engagement and wedding photos!
Landon and Spencer had a stunning Artist Point elopement surrounded by their closest friends and family this past summer. They said their vows with Taylor Swift lyrics included overlooking Mt. Baker nestled into a meadow after a wedding weekend together in Bellingham. After hanging out with these two from their Bellingham Engagement Session, I knew their elopement was going to be so sweet and awesome! Spencer and Landon are just the sweetest and coolest couple and it was so fun capturing their engagement photos as well as their elopement. Up at Artist Point, there were so many smiles all around from their friends and family members. As part of a Hawaiian wedding tradition, everyone got their own puka shell leigh necklace and it was so cool to see everyone unified that way together. Spencer and Landon’s moms walked them down the aisle together, which was so sweet, and then they got married! After family + friend portraits and making everything legal, the three of us adventured higher into Artist Point for sunset photos overlooking both Mt. Baker and Mt. Shuksan.
Everything about their elopement was dreamy and stunning and I wish they didn’t move to Virginia and be so far away! haha
This is how they met: “I was featured on a podcast about growing up Mormon and gay. Landon ended up listening and found me on Instagram. Usually I’m a sucker for slow-burn romantics, but I couldn’t resist and had him on the phone within an hour of him messaging me. There were so many uncanny similarities, and we hit it off well enough that meeting up in person was QUICKLY a must. That weekend, I joked with my family that I’d found my dream-boy in Washington and that they should start looking for wedding plane tickets now… That prediction ended up coming true, and we’ve being going back and forth between each other’s hometowns ever since!”
And this is how the proposal went down: “I set up a dreamy trail through the woods with lights, candles, and a single glowing string that led him down the path to me. It’s a reference to one of our favorite songs, “Invisible String” by Taylor Swift. Landon was at dinner with my parents at the time, and they dropped him off at the edge of the wood with a hand-written letter I’d left them to give him. I was waiting at the end, and we were both very teary-eyed. Happiest night ever!”.
These two are way too adorable and it was such a joy to wander around the mountain with these two queens. Love you guys so much and a huge congratulations!
Here is also a sweet review from these two lovebirds:
“Sarah was the secret to our elopement’s success. My husband and I knew we wanted a small, intimate ceremony in mountains, but we weren’t sure where to start. We hired Sarah knowing that we’d scored an awesome photographer. What we didn’t realize was that, in the process, we’d also brought on a trail guide, sunset expert, skilled people-wrangler, creative director, etc. She put us at ease early on with her generosity (and obvious desire to exceed expectation… like *seriously* exceed them), and made our shoots as dreamy as we hoped they’d be. Sarah is a multi-hyphenate dream worker, and we will credit some of our best memories to working with her! Hire her and it’ll be the best wedding-planning decision you’ll make!”
