SEQUIM DUNGENESS LIGHTHOUSE VOW RENEWAL

Ten years later, and more adventures than you can count, these two celebrated their ten year wedding anniversary by getting dressed up, loading up the boat, and heading across the water to the Dungeness Lighthouse in Sequim, WA. In true Pacific Northwest fashion, Brandi wore her boots on the adventure until she slipped into heels to renew her vows to her loving husband. 

True love just gets better with age, like a fine whiskey!

SEQUIM SUMMER BARN WEDDING

Surrounded by family and friends, at Fox-Bell Weddings in Sequim, Washington, Lindsey and Jeramy said "I do". From dancing partners and long time friends, to lovers and partners, these two have started the beginning of their lives as family. You can tell with every look at each other, they have what it takes to make it the distance.

Cheers to the happy couple, here's to many dances through life, side by side!

MT. RAINIER ELOPEMENT / MICROWEDDING

In the trails of Mt. Rainier, Cody and Sam promised each other a lifetime together, a bond they have been building for eight years now. With their two children, and family in tow, they eloped on the beautiful foggy mountainside. The florals were simply amazing and Sam's dress was effortlessly gorgeous, perfect for this serene National Park setting. 

After the wedding the couple headed back to their cabin for a small reception, some dancing, and the most delicious meal. A day and night not soon to be forgotten.

LAKE CRESCENT / OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK ELOPEMENT

They found each other later in life, and eloped with family at Lake Crescent in a thrifted vintage dress and bare feet. They ended the night with a romantic dinner and then a night time dive into the cool blue waters, fully dressed in their wedding attire!

Love always finds you, even when you don't expect it, Jerry and Gina are the perfect example of true love. Forever young together.

CAMANO ISLAND STATE PARK WEDDING DAY

When I first showed up to the magical Camano Island Inn I knew there was something special happening. Morgan was hanging out in the ocean facing room, hanging out with her girlfriends, leisurely starting to put some makeup on. She was so relaxed. Not too long after, Michael came in to blow dry his hair alongside his beautiful soon-to-be bride. They were getting ready together, laughing, and enjoying their time together as if it was just an ordinary day. There was just something so special about the ease of their day, the way it was effortlessly enchanting, the way a wedding day should feel. The only moment they spent apart was the few minutes before meeting in the garden, while Morgan's mother helped her slip on the wedding dress. From there the day only got better. Surrounded by friends and family, everyone sitting in the sunshine along the beach in the Camano Island State Park, Michael grabbed his guitar and began to sing as Morgan and her father made their way down the aisle. You don't want to miss these beautiful moments.

Warm and Fuzzy inside.

Makenzy is truly the absolute BEST! She came into our wedding without meeting us beforehand and she instantly got our laid back, artistic vibe. Her photos will make you feel warm and fuzzy inside. Not only is she an amazing photographer and immensely creative, but she is also incredibly kind, gentle, funny and just a beam of light and positivity. My husband and I are awkward photo people and you cannot tell in any of our pictures that we are camera shy. I highly recommend her. If you are debating whether or not to go with a video, YOU MUST DO IT. It will make you legit happy cry and let you relive all those precious moments. Makenzy, we love you.

best choice for my wedding day!

I highly recommend Makenzy! She will always make you look and feel your best while having a great time! She really knows how to capture the moment in an authentic way! She’ll have you smiling and laughing the whole time! If you are nervous about being in front of the camera (like I usually am) she should be your girl to see!

I have no words, these photos! All my cherished memories!

Treasured memories for years to come

I still can’t believe these are MY photos. That this is ME. I have always dreamed of my wedding day, and choosing Makenzy was by far the best investment we made in our day. She made us so comfortable, really captured who we are and how hard we love each other, and I know these photos and the film will be something we treasure for years to come. I can’t wait until we can show these to our grandkids! Trust us, your memories are worth the investment in someone who truly cares about your wedding day.

my first choice, my best decision.

This girl is seriously amazing and so talented! I've had her do countless photoshoots of mine and she was my first choice to shoot our wedding! She's made photoshoots of ours, with our wild toddler that doesn't hold, still look gorgeous! I recommend her to anyone asking for a great photographer. She's so easy to work with, has always helped us with outfit choices even, and always has captured exactly what we were envisioning!

an ally, an artist, and a friend.

Makenzy was nothing short of amazing from start to finish. We truly and deeply feel like we have created a best friend through the process. She was direct but open, helping us create a vision for our photoshoot (as a couple) that had direction but also felt effortless and open to anything happening. We were cracking up the entire time and couldn’t have chosen a better photographer! The photos themselves are moody, vibrant, and as a fellow artist we are proud to hang these photos on our wall. You will be so happy with not only your photos but your experience as well, we can’t stress it enough. Oh and, she is an ally of the LGBT+ community and that made all the more comfortable and worthwhile. Thank you so much! I will cherish these forever!

Five stars!

Makenzy is an incredibly thoughtful, respectful, and talented photographer. She took my fiancé and I up into the beautiful mountains of the Pacific Northwest to capture our engagement photos, and the result blew us away. She made us feel comfortable and made the entire experience an absolute joy. We got our “sneak peek” pictures the very next day, and the full album in a very timely manner. She is wonderful, I truthfully can’t say enough good things about her. I can’t wait to see how she’s able to capture our wedding.

highly recommend!

I am beyond pleased with my overall experience with Northwest Focus Company. I am a fairly shy person, and Makenzy never made me feel uncomfortable during our entire interaction. The whole session was seamless, I had confidence in her the entire time. We decided to bring our blue heeler along with us, who was not exactly cooperative during our couples session- but you’d never know based on the photos she got. Makenzy perfectly captured the relationship between me and my fiancé, and how our blue dog fits into that too. She’s hyper-aware of her surroundings (lighting and colors and I feel she went so far as to coordinate the back drop with our outfits). I will be recommending her whenever I can!

spontaneous and authentic.

We LOVE LOVE LOVE how our engagement and wedding photos came out. Makenzy did such a good job of catching spontaneous authentic moments in addition to all of the necessary posed shots with extended family. She was so great to work with throughout the entire process from our engagement shoot to our first look to the ceremony and reception. She was super responsive over text and was always open to whatever suggestions for specific shots we were looking for. Even at those times when we didn’t have a clue what to do, she was quick to provide great recommendations and even let us borrow a few props and outfits. We’ve gotten lots of compliments on the photos we’ve posted so far and would absolutely work with Makenzy again without hesitation.

warm and cozy tones

If I could give her 10+ stars I would! Not only am I blessed with the sweetest friend in the world, I was also lucky to have Makenzy as my wedding photographer. Makenzy makes you feel so comfortable and beautiful in front of the camera. Everything feels so natural and not posed. She goes above and beyond and cares about her clients. She is so loving and passionate with her work, it amazes me. I told her what style I was looking for, and put all trust in her and she made it happen. All our photos , both wedding and engagement , turned out beautifully. I love her style of photography and the warm and cozy tones . I highly recommend her!!

you won't regret this.

Where do I even begin.. Makenzy was so incredibly lovely to work with! After our engagement shoot, my husband just kept mentioning how painless the shoot was and how easy Makenzy was to work with! He was right. She is open to ideas we had and talked us through the shoot! She is someone you are instantly comfortable around. Her photos are absolutely beautiful! She has an eye that produces incredible photos and captures moments that are so special. I highly recommend hiring Makenzy for any kind of photos you want. You will not be sorry.
