Katherine & Ben | Owen Beach Elopement

Last August Katherine and Ben had a beautiful elopement on Owen Beach at Point Defiance Park in Tacoma, Washington. The day was sunny and warm and perfect, and the skies were hazy from forest fires in the distance. They celebrated with their closest friends and family, and I'm so glad they chose me to capture their sweet ceremony!

I had so much fun wandering around the park with these two and taking photos in all the different spots that Point Defiance Park has to offer. :) This is definitely one of my favorite locations because it has so much variety--amazing PNW trees, the sandy beach, and an awesome view of Mount Rainier on clear days.

Katherine planned the perfect and most relaxed elopement I've ever photographed. I love the simple yet stunning wedding dress she wore; the gorgeous and summer-y bouquet she designed; how the guests sat on driftwood on the beach during the ceremony; and how personal and sweet everything and everyone was.

Katherine and Ben: Thank you so much for allowing me to a be a part of your special day!
