Madeline & Kirk | Puyallup, WA

Madeline and Kirk live and work up in Alaska so Maddi's sister contacted me about documenting her wedding day down here in Washington on a family friends property out in Puyallup! I knew we would be a great fit right away when they mentioned their love of dogs, family, and wanting to be barefoot! Maddi has a large Croatian family who all pitched in to help make their day come together since they weren't able to come down from Alaska until just days before the wedding! Maddi's dress was made by her mother, a friend came up from Oregon to do her hair and make up, her cousin roasted a whole lamb and salmon, Kirk's boat captain officiated, and other family members came together to play music for the reception! It was truly a great celebration of these two coming together as a new family! Their friends and family were a true joy to photograph together on this day and I loved the camp style vibe of everything, there were tents set up all around the property for people to stay the night! Maddi also had her vintage Yamaha motorcycle on site for getting around the property quickly so of course we had to get some photos of that, just an all around amazing day, enjoy reliving it through these photos!
