Kyle | {Bellarmine Prep High School Senior}

Tacoma Senior Photos0001This is Kyle!  He’s a senior at Bellarmine Prep with the Class of 2017 and I can pretty much guarantee that he is ecstatic that it’s almost over!Tacoma Senior Photos0002I am in Arizona this week helping my family and I figured it was the perfect time to get caught up on some of my seniors that I haven’t had the time to blog!  Kyle and I shot his session around the late summer/fall time.  We started our session at Bellarmine where he has spent the last four  years!  He has been very involved in sports at Bellarmine..through the years playing basketball, football, and lacrosse.  As a senior he has focused more on lacrosse and has committed to Colorado Mesa University to play and study in the environmental sciences.Tacoma Senior Photos0003Kyle also wants to then train to be a firefighter/EMT and would love to go to Airborne school, then retire and teach people how to free fall!  Wow!  I love that he has so many goals and dreams…and doesn’t seem limited in achieving them!

Nick and Heather | {Roche Harbor Wedding Photography}

I wish sometimes that there was a magic wand that would make it easy to show you all the amazing memories captured from a wedding.  There are just so many…and yet, so little space to share them all.  It really is my greatest challenge when it comes to my weddings.  So…this post is long…but, not nearly as long as I could’ve made it with all the beauty, joy and love that was shared through out the day!

Nick and Heather waited a long time to have their dream weddding…and it was so perfect!  We had a little bit of drizzle throughout the day, but then when it really mattered…the sun came out in full force and gave Roche Harbor the warm glow that it thrives in.  I met Heather years ago when we worked together briefly.  It wasn’t a long time but I knew instantly she was the most amazing person with a huge heart…and I wasn’t wrong!  We have remained close via Facebook and I was able to see her love with Nick bloom and then watch as they started a family together with their first son and then some little curly haired twin boy…so, I was so excited when she emailed me that they were ready to have their wedding and wanted me to come capture it!

Roche Harbor is a gorgeous little village in the San Juan Islands…and it was a beautiful backdrop for their special day!  I hope you enjoy some of the highlights!!
