Last summer I had the absolute pleasure of capturing the wedding of Jillyan and Dalaina. I've known Jillyan for somewhere close to a decade. We hang out in the same group of close friends and I've always loved her no nonsense, but utterly sweet demeanor. It could be a long time in between the  times our paths would cross, but a couple years ago when I ran into her and got the privilege to meet her new girlfriend Dalaina, I was so excited for her because Dalaina felt like such a great match for her. Both spunky as all get out and so similar in many ways, while so very different in others, they compliment each other so well.

So when we were at a good friends wedding in 2013 (where I was a bridesmaid and not photographer!), I remember Dalaina coming up to me and saying that her and Jillyan really wanted to sit down to talk about their wedding, I was so stoked. I couldn't wait to be able to capture the love and happiness that these two bring out in each other.

So fast forward a year and we find ourselves on a beautiful sunny summer day in Hoodsport, WA for their intimate wedding just down the street from Jillyan's families beach house. Hoodsport is a place of great memories from Jillyan growing up, and to add her wedding to Dalaina to those memories just seemed to fit.

Dalaina's awesome kiddos Skyler and Robert were a major part of the day and so fun to watch the amazing bond that they have not only with Dalaina but with Jillyan too. A true cohesive family in the making.

On this brisk January day, I invite you to visit the memories of when Jillyan and Dalaina became wives.
