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 […]

Education | 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 […]

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 […]

Weddings | The Only Shot List You Need

Friday, April 21, 2017 Amy Galbraith

I’ve been asked many times from my clients if they need a shot list. There are about a bazillion Pinterest posts that provide engaged couples with a list of 101 shots your photographer “must” capture. While I think this can be helpful, I think it’s pretty unnecessary to provide your wedding photographer with an extensive […]

I photographed Katie’s older brother’s Monroe senior photos a couple of years ago at their family’s property. The place is simply stunning with wide open fields, a big beautiful barn, and a quaint little pond. I was thrilled to hear that Katie would be graduating soon and excited to return to their property and photograph […]

Tibbetts Creek Manor Wedding | M & I

Friday, April 7, 2017 Amy Galbraith

I’m excited to share this beautiful spring wedding from last year at Issaquah’s Tibbetts Creek Manor. Megan and Isaac’s day was filled with so many moments that brought even me to tears (although I could have blamed it on pregnancy!) The bond that these two have just melts my heart and it was evident on […]

Discovery Park Senior Session | Vivian

Wednesday, March 22, 2017 Amy Galbraith

If you haven’t noticed already, I spend a lot of time photographing at Discovery Park! The Class of 2017 LOVES Discovery Park – and I can see why! We have tall flowing grass, views of Puget Sound, and endless golden light. It’s also not very crowded on weeknights when I typically do my sessions. Sessions […]

Education | Engagement Session Styling Tips

Friday, March 17, 2017 Amy Galbraith

I have several spring sessions coming up and thought this would be the perfect time to discuss a few engagement session styling tips! I get a lot of questions about this and can definitely see why. Most of us grew up taking family portraits where we all wore the same shirt or some mixture of […]

Spring Mini-Sessions | April 9, 2017

Saturday, March 11, 2017 Amy Galbraith

We had so much fun photographing mini-sessions in the fall that we’ve decided to add in a spring edition as well! A mini-session is an abbreviated version of our regular portrait experience. Need a last-minute senior session, quick maternity photos or some beautiful shots of the kids to give to mom for Mother’s Day? Then […]
