Hi and welcome to my online home! I am a photographer located in Phoenix, Arizona. I'm married to my wonderful hubby, Jon, and we have 7 fur babies: Kitty Amazing, Baby Kitty, Petunia, and China, our cats, Hank and Seymour, our dogs, and Junichiro, our hedgehog. Admittedly, Junichiro is more of a spiky baby than a fur baby. I love travel, nutella, donuts, cupcakes, (okay just bring me all the carbs alright?), reading, green tea, soccer, dancing, and soft pillow cases. I love having you, I hope you stay awhile.
Andrea and Josh’s beautiful wedding took place in an elegant villa in Mt. Vernon, Washington, called Grand Willow Inn. Named for the towering Willow trees overlooking the gazebo, it is straight out of wonderland.
There were so many amazing elements that made up their day. My absolute favorite other than how gorgeous the bride and groom are, is the bridesmaids dresses! Seriously, how unique and fabulous are they?! I’m also a lover of mixed metals, so I can’t get enough of Andrea’s rose gold and silver ring combination!
Andrea and Josh met on on a dating app over 1.5 years ago. A joke led them both to the app and they never expected to meet their soulmate! But life has a way of working out like that, am I right? Having met my own husband on match.com, I totally get it! Then, knowing right away Andrea was the one, he proposed to her on the beach in Oregon. I love beach proposals so much!
These two also share a love of music which they both have serious talent for. In fact, causing major swoonage (yes that’s a word- or at least it is now!), Josh played and sang a song he wrote for Andrea during the reception. And it was really. good. Josh has even released an EP! Let me know next time you two are on stage together because I’m there, okay??
This couple also paid special attention to all their details and I love that everything has special meaning. They actually chose their wedding date of 8.4.18, in honor of Josh’s late Grandmother, Bertha Mansker, birth date. Andrea also paid homage to her late Grandmother, Chris Hughes, by wearing her pearls and earrings. Both of which, were stunning.
Everything about their wedding day was perfect, and I love to way that Andrea and Josh’s personalities perfectly compliment each other. When they come together across a room, they share a look that is a perfect mixture of best friends and love. Like when they look at each other, all these special moments, inside jokes, and secrets are shared without a single word.
Enjoy what the future has in store for you both! It was so amazing capturing your day and I loved our time together!
