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 […]

Rattlesnake Lake | Engagement Session

Friday, June 16, 2017 Amy Galbraith

I was so excited when Brian and Amanda reached out to me to photograph their wedding. It was years ago, but I met Brian during a splitboarding trip near Mt. Rainier. It’s been years, but I was so thrilled to hear that he had met an adventurous woman to accompany him on all of his […]

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 depends on […]

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 […]

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 […]

Portrait Ideas | 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 […]

seattle wedding at the ruins | tony & kayley

Saturday, March 4, 2017 Amy Galbraith

I met Kayley while working out at Strength Studio, when owner Susan introduced us. I love how not only does Susan care about the fitness of her clients, but she cares about their businesses, interests, and lives outside of the studio. Because of working out at Strength Studio I’ve met authors, donated to charity, and […]

Wedding Planning | The Perfect Wedding Day Timeline

Friday, February 17, 2017 Amy Galbraith

Whether it’s not knowing how much time to book your photographer for or just general confusion on how to set up the events on your wedding day, creating the perfect wedding day timeline for the big event can be a tough topic to tackle. While you can ask your DJ, venue, or caterer for tips, […]

Best of 2016 | That’s a Wrap!

Saturday, December 31, 2016 Amy Galbraith

What a year it has been! I have to admit that putting together this little (or not-so-little) best of 2016 year end post has become one of my favorite traditions. It really gives me a chance to look back and reflect on how far I’ve come not only as a photographer, but as a business […]
