Kendra + Thor's Backyard Wedding | Olympia Wedding Photographer

Kendra + Thor said 'I do'!

I first met Kendra + Thor earlier in the year when they interviewed me as their wedding photographer and in just a short period of time I could see what a great couple they were! Not only are they both very nice people but they are so real! They knew exactly what they wanted for their wedding, and it was mostly based on people that were important to them being present and creating an environment to host the love and support they all have for each other.

Kendra + Thor chose to do a 'first look' before their ceremony and it worked out perfectly! We were able to get great photos of them first seeing each other all spiffied up and finish all the wedding party and family portraits before the ceremony. This allowed them to spend more quality time with their guests during the reception!

Kendra grew up on a rustic little farm just outside of Olympia, WA and her neighbors have the BEST barn (see below.) She grew up loving this barn so it made perfect sense to take portraits at it! Such great memories from her childhood that we were able to incorporate into her wedding day. As a PNW wedding photographer I couldn't ask for a better setting!

It rained on and off throughout the whole day but overall, the wedding was so amazing!! We didn't let the persistent drizzle affect their day one bit! It was a TRUE, and perfect, Washington wedding!
