David and Carolyn wanted to have a pretty low key wedding so they could hang out with their friends and family. So often we shoot weddings and it is such a big production that at the end of the night the couple are exhausted and don’t hardly remember the day because they were so busy and worried about what was going to happen next. Often they don’t even get a chance to eat the dinner after they spent tons of time picking out a catering company. David and Carolyn had a really great wedding, got to hang out and really spend time with the people closest to them while still having a great time. David Sader from Absolute Music provided the music and provided a great mix of background music and fun stuff to dance to. To top it all off, while the weather looked like it was going to be nasty all day, it cleared up and was wonderful just as everybody started showing up for the wedding. Great music, a wonderful couple and an amazing setting all contributed to one of my favorite weddings this summer.
Jeff & Dustin are a really fun couple. They’re getting married in the back yard of their new house, so wanted to do their engagement session in the new house. I found out that Dustin is a bit of a YouTube celebrity and a friend of ours calls him “my favorite YouTube Beauty Guru”. Check you his YouTube Channel – click HERE.
We were dreading the weather forecast, it called for rain and was pouring on my way to meet them. By the time we met it was down to a light drizzle and a few minutes into the shoot it stopped and we had some blue skies by the end. This has happened a few times, we always head out in hopes of dodging our Pacific NW weather and more often than not we luck out.
Kyle & Jamie had a very intimate wedding ceremony at Clearwater Resort & Casino in Poulsbo, WA with their best friends & family. They love beer so much that rather than a blending of the sands ceremony during the wedding they made a Black & Tan for the couple and wedding party to share. Once they were married there was a brunch followed by a tour of breweries in the Poulsbo area. It was a first for us and a LOT of fun for everybody involved.

Cindy & Jerold tied the knot this summer on the grounds of a Summer Camp on Fox Island, WA. Where’s that? Out past Gig Harbor, we’d never been there either, but it was a great venue. This couple was so in love, the groom did a happy dance when he was told he could kiss the bride! Why on earth is there a photo of a dog hanging out in the grass? He’s the camp dog and made him self at home during the wedding, even hanging out with the bride during the ceremony.
Amy & Paul got married in a very nice back yard wedding… a really big back yard.
Some of our favorite photos taken at a recent wedding at Heartland Ranch in Graham, WA. We love this venue, not just because of the great locations for photos, but the friendly staff really go out of their way to help out.
We were beyond thrilled when Refinery29, a fashion and style website, contacted us for a feature one of our amazing wedding couples – Hally and Lou. Both were gorgeous tattooed brides that chose dresses to highlight their artwork. This post is a true testament that the perceptions around tattoos are changing. No more cover up makeup. Brides are proud to show off their ink!
