Monday, December 4, 2017 Amy Galbraith

I always get excited about winter. It gives me a chance to enjoy my personal passions (snowboarding) and also gives me some time to catch up on sharing weddings from the summer, brainstorm new ideas for the next season, and spend some time with my family. While the snow falls outside, I bring to you […]

This year has been the year of absolutely amazing clients. As my business evolves and I can hone in on the direction I want to take, I find myself working with more and more couples who seem like “my people”. Jon and Kasey, two outdoor enthusiasts, are friends of a couple who I photographed last […]

A few years ago, a client of mine was mailing me a check to pay the final balance for their wedding photography. He said, “Did you know you live directly next door to our wedding planner?” Of course I had no idea. While I had seen this lovely blonde girl running around the apartment a […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
