Driving up to Lake Quinault feels like a scene from a movie. Down a winding little road off Highway 101, under arching firs dripping with moss, the gleaming blue water of Lake Quinault twinkling between the trees.

Wedding Cakes of 2014—Olympic Peninsula Wedding Photographer

Oh, yum! Organizing this blog post quite literally made my mouth water! After a day of wedding photography, which often involves serious gymnastics and some cardio for good measure, I’m not ashamed to admit I indulge in a piece (sometimes two—shhhhh!) of wedding cake.

Everyone loves the first kiss—it’s a classic, joyful wedding moment that you just can’t miss. But there’s a moment I love even more as a wedding photographer.
