We truly live in the most amazing of places.  Being Seattle wedding photographers is a dream.  And, as an added bonus, cloud cover is actually great for photos.

Not too long ago we started a Firstlight Photography Pinterest Washington Wedding Venue Board and are trying to capture all of the Washington wedding venues where we have photographed weddings.  We’d be lying if we didn’t say we had a long way to go.

Our newest venue crush is Rein Fire Ranch in Ravensdale, WA.  The owners hosted us for a recent bridal portrait shoot that has been in the works for several years.  We initially shot Tiffany and Brandon’s Friday the 13th wedding years ago.  They were our first Offbeat Bride couple.

Tiffany is the most amazing of sports so we approached her at the end of last year with a Trash the Dress proposal.  Since she had already worn her dress for a cemetery shoot, a library dress up event, Halloween and we think she even said she vacuumed her house in it – she agreed it was time to kick it up a notch.  She was of the mind to go big or go home so we knew we needed some fire power behind us.  We plotted out the demise of her dress (and we should mention that she and Brandon are still going strong!) and set our plan in motion.

We invited JoAnn from Studio J Salon and Day Spa to do Tiffany’s hair and makeup.   We wanted to do a final farewell to the dress so we captured some bridal shots of Tiffany.  From there, it was back to hair and makeup for a much different look.

Tiffany has worked with Firstlight Photography for so many years now that photographing her is so incredibly easy.  She has got it down.  We all had so much fun as we wandered the grounds of Rein Fire Ranch.  We even had a chance to spend time with some of the furry critters that call RFR home.

Here is a sneak peek at the second part of the session.  We had a blast with this Trash the Dress session!  Stay tuned for more!
