Thursday, August 17, 2017 Amy Galbraith

Earlier this year, we did a giveaway for a senior mini-session during our Senior Week promotion. A mini-session is just what it sounds like – a more compact version of our usual portrait session offering. The winner received a 20 minute session at the location of their choice and 10 digital files. This year’s winner […]

Thursday, August 10, 2017 Amy Galbraith

I always feel so lucky when I get the chance to head back to Jackson Hole to photograph a wedding. Living there for four years gave me such a strong connection to those mountains and that place. In June I took my first trip away from baby Banks and photographed Nick and Stephanie’s Turpin Meadow […]

Seniors | Best Seattle Senior Portrait Locations

Thursday, August 3, 2017 Amy Galbraith

I’ve been photographing high school seniors in Seattle for four years now and have had the opportunity to scout out and explore some really awesome Seattle senior portrait locations. I figured it was due time to put a list together of some of my favorites to make it easy for incoming seniors to choose a […]

Seattle Senior Portraits | Free Senior Styling Guide

Friday, July 28, 2017 Amy Galbraith

I get a lot of questions from my seniors about what they should wear for their session. We get it! It’s a tough decision. Most of our sessions include at least two outfits and it can be difficult to nail down exactly what you think you will want to look back on in your photos […]

Swiftwater Cellars Wedding | Nafees & Lindsay

Thursday, July 20, 2017 Amy Galbraith

In a stroke of fate one autumn night, my husband and I met Nafees and Lindsay while playing shuffleboard at The Brick in Roslyn, Washington. They were in the area checking out wedding venues and we struck up conversation with them. It just so happened that we were on a random trip over there, looking […]

Wedding Planning | 3 Reasons Why You Should Do a First Look

Thursday, July 13, 2017 Amy Galbraith

A first look. What is it? While there are many variations of it, basically it is the chance to see your significant other in a chosen location, BEFORE you walk down the aisle. Typically it would take place a couple of hours before the ceremony when your makeup is at its freshest and the guests […]

Class of 2018 | Spring Senior Ambassadors

Wednesday, June 7, 2017 Amy Galbraith

I’ve done a lot of work over the last few months revamping our Senior Ambassadors program. It’s not that I didn’t like it before, I am just really excited to have a fresh new program with a more unique experience. In the past, each senior had the opportunity for a free session with me and […]

Wedding Planning | The Best Wedding Party Photos

Thursday, May 18, 2017 Amy Galbraith

A wedding party (also known as a bridal party) is a special way to honor some of your closest friends on your wedding day. Recently I’ve seen everything from 20-person wedding parties to having a best man and maid-of-honor only to having no wedding party. I think your decision to include a wedding party┬ádepends on […]

Friday, May 12, 2017 Amy Galbraith

Every year David and I do something awesome for our birthdays. His typically involves some sort of spring skiing trip (last year was Whistler, this year was White Pass) and mine has been a little different each time. This year I had really been itching to get up to the San Juan Islands again. I […]

JM Cellars Wedding | Cameron & Jennifer

Thursday, April 27, 2017 Amy Galbraith

I absolutely love shooting weddings in Woodinville. It is so close to Seattle yet seems like you’re in a completely different country when you’re there. The area has been built up with many gorgeous wineries and has become a destination for us city folk to enjoy. The other wonderful thing about these wineries is that […]
