Tuesday, July 3, 2018 Amy Galbraith

I had the pleasure of meeting Madeline of Fearless in Training through a mutual friend. We started a “lunching ladies” tradition and contemplated the challenges of being women in business and some of us also mothers in business. I loved her company and she having just given birth to a sweet baby boy, we had […]

Monday, July 2, 2018 Amy Galbraith

As a documentary photographer, I’m all about unexpected moments. I suppose that’s what makes this post so difficult to write! The last thing I’d want my clients to do is “stage” moments or provide a shot list. That being said, I think it’s important to be aware of some not-so-obvious moments that you’ll experience on […]

Melissa and Kevin met years ago through friends in Tacoma but it wasn’t until they crossed paths again at Oktoberfest in Leavenworth that sparks flew. A few years of dating went buy and Kevin popped the question while he was on a world-travel trip and Melissa came to meet him in Albania. When discussing wedding […]

It’s pretty easy to get caught up sharing lots of spring photos around here these days. That being said, I’m thrilled to share this gorgeous session from this past winter. I photographed Daniella’s North Bend maternity photos on a gorgeous crisp winter day in February. I just love the views of Mt. Si covered in […]

After meeting with Nathaniel and Taldi, I knew we had an instant connection. Adventurous, outdoor-loving, travelers, ski tourers and mountaineers, it’s hard to keep them out of the mountains. They live here in Washington but will be tying the knot in the Tetons this summer and I couldn’t be more excited to tag along. After […]

Bryan and Chantelle have been together for 9 years. They met while playing an online game and the rest is history! Bryan popped the question in what might be one of my favorite proposal stories yet. Chantelle is an early childhood educator. It takes quite a lot of patience and love to teach these little […]

Year in Review | Best of 2017

Friday, December 29, 2017 Amy Galbraith

Holy wow! Just like that, we are already finished with another year. I’ll have to admit, this one really snuck up on me. I’ve been blessed with a lot this year, including finishing up the first year as the mama of sweet Banks. In all honesty, finding balance has been a total struggle and I […]

Fall is such a gorgeous time for family photos, and it’s no surprise that I kept particularly busy this fall with the amazing weather that we had. Seattle had an unseasonably warm and sunny fall season and everything lined up just perfect. The leaves were in amazing abundance and we were blessed with clear skies […]

I love when things just come together and I feel like I’m so in tune with my clients. This year in particular, I feel like I’ve had a lineup of seriously stellar couples to work with! Brian and Amanda are certainly no exception. I met Brian a few years ago on a Mt. Rainier backcountry […]

So you just got engaged, congratulations! Now it’s time to start planning the big day. As most wedding planning goes, you’ll first probably pick your venue and catering, wedding planner, then it’s on to the photographer! While I’m a little bit biased, I must say that hiring a photographer you trust and gel with is […]
