When I first exchanged conversations via email with Courtney and Rodrigo, I immediately knew we were a match made in heaven. Anyone who loves “Powerpuff girls”, is an immediate soul mate, no ifs and or buts about it! But seriously, I was over the moon when they chose me to capture their upcoming special day at the Fontaine Estates Winery in Naches, Washington. They had such a beautiful wedding with beautiful weather. These two are truly made for each other! They are so humble, loving, and kind. I am so blessed that I was able to share such a special day with these two kindred and warm souls!
Courtney and Rodrigo met in college through friends and were dating for 4 years up until now. Big shout out to the friends that introduced these two lovebirds! Rodrigo is a 7th-grade health and fitness teacher and Courtney is a college prep coach prepping kids for college. When these are two aren’t working they enjoy hiking, binge-watching shows on Netflix, playing tennis, and taking their dog Piper on walks. I asked Courtney and Rodrigo several questions about themselves and these are their questions and their answers. Here’s a glimpse of Courtney and Rodrigo’s love together and their story.
For the groom: What do you love most about her? “I love how caring and loving she is. I love how creative she is too!”
For the BRIDE: What do you love the most about him? “I love how patient he is and how passionate he is about this career and his students. This shows what an amazing father he will be some day. I also love his sense of humor! He is like a big kid and I love that.”
WOW… I do not know where to start! I did not know Lessie before our photoshoot but I am so glad to have met her and chosen her to capture our engagement pictures! She was so easy to communicate with and so so helpful from start to finish. I am absolutely obsessed with the photos she captured of my fiancé and I! Not only do the photos look beyond amazing but our experience with her throughout the photoshoot was out of this world! She is extremely talented and was amazing at capturing natural and real moments!

Lessie did a exceptional job for our engagement and wedding photos! Her style was exactly what I was looking for and turned out absolutely gorgeous! Wedding days can be hectic with coordination of people and time, but she was very patient, flexible and professional. Everyone at our wedding loved her and you will too!

Lessie is the most compassionate, easy to communicate with , professional photographer I have ever had the joy of working with. Lessie has a skill set the surpasses many others, her attention to detail, her willingness to try new things and her commitment to the highest quality photos and experience for all who have the honor of booking with her is unprecedented. Lessie was patient with me as I asked many questions and ended up needing a few days to determine if she was a good fit for our wedding and my gosh I am so grateful we booked with her! Lessie has a soul that is so invested in producing authenticity that many photos seem to lack. She gently coaches you through posed photos with a true air of expertise and ease. She also had the flawless ability to capture moments that may otherwise be lost somewhere in memory alone. Moments such as family members dancing, the bride and groom sharing an intimate look and smile or your favorite uncle grabbing one too many from the bar! Lessie captures life and gives life to all she meets. Booking with her will guarantee your photos will be more than you could ever dream. She will be our go to for the rest of our lives!
