In classic KNDM Co. fashion, my year in review post is right on time - just about a month late. DUDEEEEE. 2017. I don’t even really know what to say because it was the best ever. But I say that every year. Every year I think that there’s no way my work could improve more than it did that year or that my weddings couldn’t possibly top that seasons. But without fail, every year it does, and that makes me SO EXCITED for what 2018 holds.Read More

Aaron + Tiffany / Joshua Tree, California.
I've known for a long time that this was going to be my favorite wedding and it didn't disappoint. Not only are these two friends of mine crazy stylish and gorgeous, but Tiffany is an insanely talented weaver (she made the ceremony backdrop herself) and space/installation designer. I don't even know what you would call that, but everything you see here she did herself. From the hand lettering of all the signs, designing/drawing of the invitations, creating the big hexagon shapes from scratch.. I know I'm not saying any of this right but she is so talented. I have some of her wall weavings in my office and you can find her work on her website or Instagram.
Shooting this wedding was like photographing the most epic styled shoot of all time, except it was real life, AND I got to hang out with my best friends all weekend. IT WAS THE BEST.I'll be blogging more about this wedding later, there's SO MUCH to share, but in the meantime, here's a lil preview of my fav day ever.Read More

10.07.17 /// Allison+Scott, a preview. Their love story is one for the books - high school sweethearts, young parents, overcoming years of long-distance. They are the real deal and their wedding was the most wonderful celebration reflecting that. I love this little family!!!! Congratulations Allison and Scott!

Tim and Val. I feel so connected to them. Last spring I got to photograph their intimate beach wedding and brewery reception, where they did a gender reveal and we all found out they were having a baby girl. It was such an intense and beautiful thing to share with them - it's so hard to walk away from something like that and not feel like best friends. I was SO thrilled to photograph their maternity session in a cozy Airbnb in San Diego! So stoked on these images and I can't wait to meet their baby girl who is officially now outside that belly!Read More

Josh+Ashley in Joshua Tree, California. Fellow Washington to California transplants. Bride is a photographer, groom is a musician, so basically they are the couple doppelganger of me and my husband.

05.27.17. Jim+Alyssa /// These two met while running a marathon in Vegas. A marathon. I've run *one* half marathon, and I was in NO condition to meet the love of my life. But they did. They started out running the race together - "meet me at the finish line," they said. I can't get that line out of my head after I heard during their ceremony. I hear a LOT of love stories - and this one is probably one of my favorites.Read More
