Sam + Ally | Olympia, WA

We all remember Sam & Ally’s amazing proposal, right?  The one where I got to hide in the bushes & capture every moment of Sam getting down on one knee to ask Ally the most important question of their lives?  Amidst a madrone holding 100 vintage tags with “things Sam can’t wait to do once they’re married” written on them, on the beaches of the Puget Sound?  Well, if you haven’t seen that yet let’s just take a beat & revisit it HERE.  Now if you’re all caught up, prepare yourself for some Red Barn Studios wedding photography.

Every DIY detail is perfect, Sam & Ally are stunning, Sam’s 100% English groomsmen are looking quite dapper, Ally’s bridesmaids are beautiful.  The day was gorgeous.  I was so happy to get to capture this day for them.

Sam & Ally met while she was traveling to England & was spotted by Sam in a pub.  What resulted was months of a long distance, different time zone relationship with a few trips across the pond in between.  These two are so dedicated to making it work & are so completely in love with each other it is impossible to not fall in love with them as well.  My only complaint with Sam & Ally is that now they live on a different continent.  Lame!  haha.

Congrats guys… thanks for sharing two of the most important days of your life with me.
