Four years ago today we were married on Camano Island wearing our jeans and Chuck Taylors. Our wedding was amazing. We let our young children plan the day and they didn’t disappoint. We had no worries, no timeline to follow and we had a great photographer who also happens to be Kier’s best friend. My best friend was ordained online and married us in the wilderness. I loved our wedding. Nothing but wonderful memories.
Who would have thought that Kier and I would become so proficient in all of the ins and outs of weddings? Kier brought with him a lifetime of photography experience with plenty of weddings under his belt, but he didn’t focus on weddings until I told him he was missing the boat! We both love what we do. Getting to know our couples is an adventure and getting to take pictures on such an important day is really the ultimate compliment. My favorite part is seeing how different people celebrate. Learning about all of the variety of traditions and watching people start their own (or fling all tradition out the window) is just plain awesome.
Most of all we have fun
These are some of my favorite shots of Kier at weddings. Yes, that is him stealing a cupcake. We luuuv Hello Cupcake! That is also Kier running as if he were under siege. OK, he is just trying to get set up to get more shots of the couple leaving, but you get the point. I think sometimes he regrets giving me a camera.
and the winner is…
Okay, we are not sure. We love both designs that Camron from Level 70 Design did for us. We’re very impressed that he gave us what we wanted when we ourselves weren’t quite sure. Which one of the designs do you think should be the new face of Firstlight Photography weddings?
What do you think? We are considering including the word “weddings” on this page. Is it needed or is the bride a dead give away?
option 1 or option 2?
Robyn, the owner of Ubiquitous Journey, has invited me to be a featured artist at her in-store gallery in Puyallup. I met Robyn through a Kieran’s List networking meeting and paid a visit to her store. The store is a one-stop shop for natural and earth friendly products.
Robyn carries a wide array of natural products for infants and adults including organic cotton clothing, personal care items, teas, supplements, jewelry and beaded art, home decor and a variety of other goods. Visit her website to register for the next beginning yoga class or to learn how to make medicine bags. It is truly the most unique store in Puyallup.
