I would greatly appreciate your vote! As a planner I work with so many talented wedding vendors and wanted to highlight (SOME) my favorites in a few categories to help you vote.

Wedding Photographers:

TmInspired- Taylor and I met when I first moved to Seattle and a friendship quickly grew. She is absolutely wonderful and will be your hype girl on the day of!

Tetiana Photography- I am absolutely obsessed with Tetiana’s work! So much so I have hired her to do my own engagement photos this year!

Valen Lee Photography –I had the pleasure of meeting Valen this past summer and I am looking forward to all the weddings we have together in 2023! Amazing husband and wife team!

Thank you for making it all the way to the bottom of my post. This blog was TOUGH for me to write as I love so many people in this industry and I think everyone deserves recognition for their hard word and dedication. 2022 was an insane year and I am truly just thankful for all my couples past, present and future who allow us to continue to do what we love along with all the amazing vendors I have met along the way! Here’s to the 2023 season, everyone!
