Saturday is going to be AMAZING!!! A little peek at my mini sessions location. #brendaschaeferphotography #summerminisessions #washingtonphotographer
I’ll be honest, meeting new people freaks me out but I love it. Do we hug? What if that’s not their love language? Are my jokes going to bomb? How long do I maintain eye contact for? And so on 😩😅 . Does anyone else do this? Just me? k cool. . But I got these sweet photos from today’s meet up 😍🔥🙌🏽 . ____________ Anyway, Viv can’t wait to create together! @friedbeans727
It’s sessions like this that remind me why I love photography so much. The past few days have been hard & I’ve learned to never let anyone let me think that my photos aren’t creative or art. It’s my creativity & my art & I’m not changing that for anyone 💕💕 photography is my outlet. It’s my happy place away from all the hard times. It helps clear my mind. And I won’t give up or let people tell me otherwise 🌻☀️💕 this cute family is my absolute favorite 😍

🇫🇷On adoré notre petit détour dans l’état de Washington 💕 On a surtout eu un gros coup de cœur pour le parc national Mount Rainier 🗻Ce mont enneigé est tellement beau, mais comme vous le savez notre truc à nous c’est les cascades et même là bas on s’est trouvé notre petit coin de Paradis avec une eau tellement belle 🤩 Il y a un état que vous aimeriez visiter au USA ?🇺🇸 ——— 🇬🇧 We loved our little detour in the state of Washington 💕 We especially had a big crush on Mount Rainier National Park 🗻 This snowy mountain is so beautiful, but as you know our thing is the waterfalls and even there we found our little corner of paradise with water so beautiful 🤩 Is there a state you would like to visit in the US? . . . . #washingtonphotographer #washington #mountrainier #roadtripusa #thetravellingnomads #traveldreamseekers #thetraveltag #speechlessplaces #waterfallhunting #voyage #travelblogger

when you know, you know
2015 was a crazy year for me. It was the year that I lost my father and also the year that I was left my job of almost 10 years. Since I left my job I have gained knowledge in several different crafts, lived in 3 different states, and have traveled to 15 countries. Reflecting on the last few years I have almost no regrets and continue everyday to be the best me. The man my father taught me to be! This was my first job after getting back from mine and Jess's first backpacking trip in Central America. Lots of healing time while crabbing on the mighty pacific. Love life, be curious, and never let fear stand in the way of making decisions. ✌️ • 📷 @jessicaheron_images • • ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ • • • • #heyheyhellomay #fpme #authenticlovemag #olympicpeninsulaphotographer #couplesphotography #loveintentional #mainephotographer #montanaphotographer #elopementphotographer #washingtonphotographer #intimatewedding #adventurouswedding #justalittleloveinspo #kauaielopement #radlovestories #oregonwedding #oregonphotographer #elopementlove #firstandlasts #kauaiphotographer #indiebride #adventurebrides #belovedstories #destinationweddingphotographer #grundens #fishing #oregoncoast # #pacificocean
When the water compliments your eyes 🤩
Drove back into Washington to visit Mt. Rainier National Park! 🗻 Since Mt. Rainier has the most glaciers in the continuous 48 states, it has over 150 waterfalls! If you care to brave a slippery path, Narada Falls is a well-worth trail. #roamwithrustin
“And into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul.”
Reminiscing about Arizona & this beautiful couple.
CAUTION: sappy appreciation post ahead! Never have I had the privilege of knowing anyone as true to themselves. She is a kick ass creative, a mentor, counselor, business owner and partner, friend, sister, and daughter. A wildly authentic, sometimes silly, always genuine, make you laugh, say it like it is woman who without a doubt will run the world. I am so proud to know you.
Confession: I get bored when things start looking the same over and over again. While I do believe that consistency is important and blah blah blah, here’s the truth. Just because not everything looks the same doesn’t mean it’s not “consistent” it means I’m not trying to be complacent. Not everyone fits into the same mold and in reality no two should be the same. You were carefully designed to be different and unique so why would I want you look like everyone and everything else? Is that what you want? We’re going to rock your session and make it uniquely yours! Sometimes that means taking your style and elevating it for your once in a lifetime Senior experience, sometimes it means playing with the tones in your images or trying new locations to fit the vision you’re wanting to convey, shoot sometimes it’s shooting the same locations, but utilizing them in a NEW way! I’ll say it over and over again... Creativity>Complacency. It’s what keeps me going and creating images that we’re both proud of! Why not stand out? Why not be different? Be a trend setter! Be YOU bravely. Let’s shoot! #sincerelymariphotography #seniorphotographer
I just wanna thank you For being who you are Even though we grew apart Without you, I wouldn't make it this far. . . #carlos94
One of the best backyard weddings! ⠀ ⠀ Tiffany & Andrew making out in front of their guests 😍 ⠀ It was a super hot day, but that lake and this adorable couple was flat out amazing! ⠀ ⠀ I gotta say, this year’s weddings I’ve had the honor of photographing , are seriously on FIRE! All my couples and their weddings are so special and all so beautifully different, this year is going to be hard to beat! ⠀ ⠀ I can’t wait for all these weddings this year just as much as the ones next year! Ahhh!!! Seriously my dream job!
Cuties in the village celebrating one year of marriage✨❤️
I’m about 2 months late on this but look at this adorable 1 year old! I can’t believe he’s already 1. This kid melts my heart every time he looks at me with those big eyes. • • • • • • #letthembelittle #kids #childrenphoto #childrenphotography #photooftheday #photography #wallawalla #washington #washingtonphotographer #tricitieswaphotographer #tricities
We got to take in this beautiful scenery at Diablo Lake and I just really can’t believe that there are places this beautiful in the US.
Oh Lincoln beach we love you!
Christine & Nathaniel came all the way from Texas for their intimate wedding in the Gorge with views of Mt Hood. They couldn’t have asked for better weather this morning! Here’s a quick sneak peek from their gorgeous day! 🏔💍🤵🏼👰🏻 Dress @wtoowatters Ring @rosadosbox Groom attire @menswearhouse @calvinklein Venue @husumhighlands
I think comparison really sucks. I continually read about artists struggling with this, but I’m learning comparison happens with clients as well. With wedding season being in full swing, past brides and future brides please hear this. You are enough, and the amount of flowers at your wedding or backdrop does not define the importance of your big day or the validity of your marriage. Wether you are saying your vows in your parents backyard or on the side of a mountain, the covenant between you are your partner holds the same weight. Your wedding is something no one can take from you, so don't let comparison rob you of that joy for one second. ✨

Freckles & wildflowers 🌼🌿💛 @antisocialextrovertt ✨ What are the best hiking trails in the PNW? Im having the urge to take a road trip somewhere new 🌲
Wishing you all the very best on life's journey Bryce. His mama Rosie and I have become dear friends and it makes my heart so glad to be part a part of big milestones like these. #washingtonphotographer #pnwphotographer #itsakeeperphotography #tricitiesphotographer #seniorpictures #chiawana #richland #richlandwa
This is one of my all-time favorite sparkler photographs ... it was a chilly night, and the hardest part was keeping still enough to make it work! (Special kudos to our wedding planner Nargess @fleurdelisevents who helped bring the sparkle!) . #azzuralove #azzuraphotography #newcastlegolfclub #newcastlegolfclubwedding #seattleweddingphotography #seattlewedding #seattleweddings #seattleweddingphotographer #pnw #seattlephotographer #seattlebride #seattlebridemag #shesaidyes #weddinginspiration #nwevents #washingtonphotographer @newcastle.golf
“Walk with me, we will figure out where we are going later.”
I can never thank you both enough for our special sessions!

This truck. That light. Those tiny people. ❤️ They both stepped it up for me at this shoot because they want to help me with my business. It warms my heart! A lot of times you can overhear my three year old do something cute and say, “Mom do you want to shoot me?” 📸🤣 I cant wait until they’re big enough to assist me. In other news- let’s do a fall session together at this location! It has alllll the pretty things! ❤️ Don’t wait until it’s rainy and cold to book- I’m already booking into October so whatcha waitin’ for?
Daddy’s girl.
The best vacation partner I could ever ask for ❤️ I had so much fun in the Bahamas 😎 @robert_terhune
Having a family is such hard work. Sometimes it’s tough to embrace all of life’s speed bumps, the tantrums and let’s be honest, the severe lack of SLEEP 😂, but the times where you can go hang out in the park with the humans you love makes it all worth it 👌🏻.
Proudly sporting his latest bruises and scrapes. Little boys are the best.
