At Firstlight we are excited to be serving more and more corporate clients. In addition to our wedding, sports and portraiture services, we are meeting the needs of businesses in need of photos for annual meetings, product photography, holiday parties and web publication.

For more information on corporate photography visit our website.

We got to know Kristin and Jason at their engagement session and we attended their wedding rehearsal.  Both are really good ways to get to know our clients – and their families.  We could tell right away that the wedding was going to be a blast.

We were really moved by the efforts of this couple’s family and friends.  The reception was elegant and so much fun.  Everyone seemed to help out and the entire event was flawless.

Kristin is a girl’s softball coach so she hired her team to cater the reception which was hosted at the Orting Grange.  The girls did a phenomenal job and should really consider catering as a viable career.

The new couple, their parents and the wedding guests were all having fun.  We think the photos capture the spontaneity and good nature of this amazing couple.

It was our first shoot at the Orting Grange and we can’t wait to shoot another wedding there.  The lighting is beautiful and the hall offers an intimate setting for receptions with the perfect dance floor.

At Firstlight Photography, it is our goal to make sure our couples are having fun.  We choose to do this line of work not only because photography is our passion, but we have so much fun with our clients.

Weddings can be stressful – no matter how meticulous your planning.  So, we arrive early, look for the good shots and help out with “other duties as assigned.”  Sometimes this means giving guests directions via cell phone, fixing ties, finding veils, repairing bouquets, amusing cranky children – and sometimes cranky adults and basically whatever it is we can do to be helpful and keep things on track.

We arrived early for Hannah and Dylan’s wedding and scouted out some locations.  As we were taking bridal portraits of Hannah, Kier thought about getting her out on the course.  We were able to get a golfer to donate a club and Hannah just went for it – a la the golfing bride!  Surely this will be a great addition to the wedding book we are making for Hannah and Dylan.

We shoot action sports photography but we do love to bring our athletes into the studio.  Michael is a very dedicated Tae Kwon Do student so his parents wanted to have a studio session to show off his moves.

Congratulations on your achievements Michael – we’re very proud of you!!!!

David and Kristen wanted an engagement shoot that would feature a Seattle City scape so we figured what better place than Gas Works Park.

On location shots provide a rich backdrop for engagement portraits.  Kristen and David were really relaxed on this day and they just went for it.

The park was crowded on this sunny day, but everyone was very helpful and we can’t tell you how many bicyclists and joggers paused to stay out of shots.  In addition, many stopped and watched from a distance.  With all of the equipment and lights it looked like David and Kristen were the celebrity couple of the day.

Most Firstlight Photography packages include an engagement session.  These sessions are great ice breakers that allow us to get to know our couples on a different level.  It really helps put everyone at ease on the big day.

We have been working on our first print ad that we are planning on placing in South Sound Wedding & Event magazine.

Who’s that girl?

Autumn is a dream bride and we just loved working with her.  She was ready to have a good day no matter what curve ball she was thrown.  She is so graceful, authentic and charming – her personality really comes through in her photos.  We are pleased to have her represent our company!

The Big Swing at the Puyallup FairThe Big Swing at the Puyallup Fair

Living in Puyallup means that we pretty much have to go to the Fair with the kids every year.  We all have a great time, the kids running from ride to ride and me hauling around my cameras having my own kind of fun.
