Living in the Pacific Northwest is amazing and it is a special treat when our couples want to get out and do a session somewhere that highlights just how amazing it is here. Sure, you can do engagement photos at the Pt. Defiance Rose Garden and stand in line for spots with 100 other couples on a sunny (maybe) spring day or you can take a hike… go climb a mountain… do something AMAZING! When Jamie & Brian told me they wanted to do photos on Mt Rainier I was beyond thrilled. Sure, it was fall and our normally unpredictable weather is even more unpredictable, but they just considered it all part of the experience. We really had a great time spending the day driving around to different locations.
I’ve always really loved taking pictures of people, ever since I was in High School on the yearbook & newspaper staff and that’s continued today. Even after 17 years in business the thing I love to do when I have spare time is to head out into nature to hike and take photos and living in the Pacific Northwest we get a fair number of people that want to take their engagement photos up on Mt Rainier and some other amazing locations. If you’re looking for engagement photos, senior portraits, family photos or just want to get out and get some cool photos just for fun get in touch and we can help make that happen!
During a recent hike on Mt Rainier I ran into a group of women that asked me to take a group photo of them. They hadn’t planned on doing a serious hike, but they liked my photo of them they ended up tagging along with me and we kept taking photos and it got me thinking that it would be a lot of fun to combine a photography lesson and a hike, so if you have a camera you’d like to learn how to use a little better and love nature we can combine the two for private or small group photography lessons.

Jeff & Dustin are a really fun couple. They’re getting married in the back yard of their new house, so wanted to do their engagement session in the new house. I found out that Dustin is a bit of a YouTube celebrity and a friend of ours calls him “my favorite YouTube Beauty Guru”. Check you his YouTube Channel – click HERE.
Kyle & Jamie had a very intimate wedding ceremony at Clearwater Resort & Casino in Poulsbo, WA with their best friends & family. They love beer so much that rather than a blending of the sands ceremony during the wedding they made a Black & Tan for the couple and wedding party to share. Once they were married there was a brunch followed by a tour of breweries in the Poulsbo area. It was a first for us and a LOT of fun for everybody involved.

In between summer weddings we are having fun with engagement sessions. Congrats Danelle and John. We can’t wait for your wedding!
Engagements sessions are a great way for couples to get to know their photography team and to have the opportunity to become more relaxed in front of the camera. When we arrive for your wedding you are more at ease since we have already worked together.
Wondering what to wear for your engagement session? We will help you with wardrobe questions and we have visual guides thanks to Pinterest.
Interested in engagement photo ideas? We have that too!

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?
Yay! We did it! Kier and I were so happy that our very first wedding show turned out to be a success. We had never done a booth before so we showed up with our McGyver filled suitcase and were ready for any curve ball. Kier’s mom, Monika, was a life saver. She helped us get the booth organized and our wall installations situated. We even had an hour to spare so we enjoyed a nice breakfast and conversation.
We met so many amazing couples and vendors at the South Sound Magazine Wedding and Event Show. Paula and her crew were on the ball. I saw Paula the week before at a networking meeting – she was working it for all of the vendors! We were able to meet some fabulous vendors that we will continue to network with.
We’re booking up for summer thanks to help from our first show. We called Paula and asked her to book us for her September show in Tacoma. It is a two day event so we hope Monika will come back to help!
