We’ve just been notified that South Sound Wedding & Event magazine has featured one of our weddings on their web site.

The wedding was shot on Friday, March 13th 2009 and it was one of the most unique weddings I’ve ever gotten to shoot.  From the bouquet with no flowers, to the bridal party with no women it was nonstop fun with a great cast of characters.  To see the article, just click HERE.  The wedding was also featured on Offbeat Bride a few months ago.  See that article HERE.

“Tiffany’s advice to future brides, “Wedding planning can be as easy or as stressful as you make it. I read, ‘your wedding is not a competition,’ and that really helped me. I didn’t need to outdo anyone to make my wedding special.”

Bride & GroomI’ve written a couple of other posts about my “offbeat” Friday the 13th Bride, Tiffany, and now I’m at it again.

There is no need to go on and on about how much fun I had working with Tiffany on her wedding day and the shoot we did at the cemetery in Tacoma, I’ve said it all before.  I am here not to rehash old stories, but to add on to the story that just keeps going.

How does the story keep going?  Well, I just got an e-mail from Tiffany to let me know that her wedding was featured on offbeatbride.com!  Check out her story HEREg, then go check out other ideas about planning an “offbeat” wedding.

Since the story on offbeatbride.com is being seen by people outside of the Seattle / Tacoma area I just wanted to let people know that if you are interested in hiring Firstlight Photography to shoot your wedding, but you don’t live in the Seattle area we will travel.  If you have questions feel free to call (253.335.7958) or e-mail (kier@firstlight-photography.com) for details.

I’ve been dying to try out Animoto and while I was working on Tiffany’s wedding book I thought that her photos would be perfect to use and the song is the song she used when she walked down the aisle with her father.  How perfect is that?

While I’ve shot a lot of weddings I’d never claim that they all start looking alike, BUT from time to time one of them will really stand out from the rest.  The reasons vary, it could be a couple you really build a bond with, a really cool location or sometimes it is just the day they decide to get married on.

Yesterday, Friday the 13th, I shot a wedding that stood out for all of those reasons.  The couple was very friendly and the bride treated me more like a member of the family than the hired photographer, there was a very interesting cast of characters and NO BRIDESMAIDS! Yes, that’s correct, the bride had 3 guys as bridesmaids, so I guess there were bridesmaids, but no women serving in those rolls.   The bride had some music I’d never heard played at a wedding and walked down the aisle to “Going to the chapel”.   Even after all the weddings we’ve shot it was a day filled with firsts and I’ll never forget it.
