Shuksan Golf Club Wedding | Bellingham Wedding Photographer

Dani & Aj

I've known Dani since we were in the same sociology group at Whatcom Community College. We kept in touch over the years and when her and AJ were expecting, she asked me to do their Maternity photos. I jumped at the chance because, hello, she's GORGEOUS and I adore her! Little did I know that at the end of their maternity session, her soon to be fiance had a surprise for all of us. I asked them if they had any other photos they wanted me to capture before we wrapped. An impish grin spread over Aj's face and he instructed me to "stand over there" and placed Dani in front of him and told her to "put your hands on your face and look surprised." Aj is a bit of a jokester so naturally she was skeptical of what he was up to. He promptly got down on one knee and asked her to be his wife. I was so shocked I almost forgot to shoot. haha I still remember that day so clearly, so full of joy and emotion. I feel blessed to have been a small part of it. 

I feel even more blessed to have continued to capture their lives greatest moments from their formal engagement session to Dani's Bridal shower to a special Wedding Boudoir Session. Dani & Aj and their wee babes Annabelle feel like family to me. So without further ado, their wedding photos.
