Yakima River Canyon Engagement - Melissa and Michael

Yakima Engagement Photographers

Tavis and Amy photographed this engagement session for Melissa and Michael at the Yakima River Canyon. Both of them love the outdoors and loved the scenery we introduced them to during the session. Together they even had their cowboy boots on! 

Mutual friends introduced the happy couple. Their friendship and love grew over several years, despite the many miles that separated them for a while! Melissa enjoys working with her horses during her leisure time. Michael works with heavy machinery for a construction company. His claim to fame was being a part of the Bertha team in Seattle :)  

We enjoyed spending the morning with these two and learning more about them and their families! Michael has two children will help celebrate their union by joining the bridal party in their wedding. Melissa's sister just had a baby, so her parents became grandparents for the first time! Best wishes to these two wonderful people.

Prosser Rustic Winter Wedding | | Cole + Elle


"This is the story of a bride in white
Waiting on her wedding day
Anticipation welling up inside
While the groom is crowned as king
O death where is your sting
Cause we'll be there singing Holy Holy Holy is the Lord"


Everyone sang along to "THE CITY HARMONIC - Holy (Wedding Day)" at the start of the ceremony which really set the tone for the meaning and sanctity of this marriage. There is no greater example of marriage than Christ and the church. 

Elle and Cole were married at her family homestead in Prosser, Washington with a view of the surrounding hills, fields, large hay stacks, and neighboring vineyards! Trees and flowers filled the ceremony and reception rooms, bringing the outdoor feel inside for this rustic, winter wedding.

Both the bride and groom are deeply rooted in their faith and they were both home-schooled. These two are greatly loved - there was an overall spirit of joy in the room! Everyone was very very happy except one... Elle's dog Molly was moping around during the wedding and you could tell she was sad that Elle was leaving the homestead! 

This past year Elle prayed about which verse should be hers for the year and she chose Psalm 46:10 "Be still, and know that I am God" - This was before Cole & Elle got engaged, but now they're married and her last name is "Still" - kinda neat that her new last name was in her verse for the year!

Historic Steilacoom Town Hall Wedding | | Samantha + Chace

Steilacoom Wedding Photographers

Samantha and Chace’s wedding was full of many personal details that served as a beautiful representation of this young couple’s fun and spunky personalities. The couple incorporated the delicate luster of pearls, soft pinks and greens with the comfort and down home feel that must include cowboy boots! Pink and white roses adorned pink tablecloths for a fresh and sweet look. A hot potato bar welcomed Sam and Chace’s guests as they entered the wedding reception. Family and guests were then treated to homemade desserts including pink cake-pops, and a wedding cake made with love by Samantha’s mother, Penny.

The love of family wove its way through the ceremony as Samantha and Chace celebrated the joining of their lives and family. Their handsome five year old son Carson served as a ring bearer and their 21 month old daughter Tenzlyn, sparkled as a flower girl. 

The memorable day was framed by the historic Steilacoom waterfront. Amy and Tavis enjoyed photographing this family wedding and a scuba diver even joined in on the fun!  We wish Samantha and Chace a lifetime of love and happiness!
