Amy & Paul got married in a very nice back yard wedding… a really big back yard.
Senior $teals – 1/2 off package
Firstlight Photography has been working with more and more teens that are paying for their own senior portraits so we decided to do a huge promo.
Reserve your shoot by April 30, 2010 and for $150 you will get the following:
- 1 1/2 hours of photography
- Online gallery

- $75 in print credits (good for standard or premium prints only)
- 5 retouched images (i.e. blemish removal, teeth whitening, effects, texture overlay)

Here’s How You Can Save Even More…
Bring a friend for an additional $50. We’ll spend 1 1/2 hours total but your friend gets all of the benefits listed above. Buddy shoots are wonderful because having your best friend along puts you at ease.
As time permits, we can hit a few of your favorite locations for shots. Wardrobe changes are permitted – we don’t limit this. It is your shoot! All you need is a ride to your location(s) of choice. We recommend that seniors bring a parent or older sibling along for the shoot. Of course friends are welcome too.

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.”
the grass is greener
It was a dry summer as can be seen from the before photos take at the Meridian Habitat Park in Puyallup. I know my bride was very disappointed that the grass was so brown so I decided to surprise her with a little bit of Photoshop magic. Below you will see the before and after images – and not a drop of water was used in this eco-friendly photo editing work.
Why do I love my “job” so much? I love it because I get to work with some of the coolest people I’ve ever known! I literally just got home from their wedding, and I couldn’t wait to post this photo, the rest of the photos are still downloading as I type this. David & Mandy were so much fun to work with, the entire day just flew by and I ended up doing Mandy’s sister’s senior photos when the wedding was over.
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.
I’ve talked about All That Shimmers in previous posts and I really can’t say enough good things about the shop or Karen, the owner. I went to visit her on Sunday after meeting with a client in Lakewood and found out that she is having a really big sale on some discontinued wedding dresses. How big of a sale?
