Are you planning a summer or fall rustic outdoor wedding? Firstlight Photography has photographed over 150 weddings and are adept at photographing outdoor weddings as well as barn / rustic venues.
We come prepared with our full gear including lighting and an assortment of cameras and lenses. Kier, owner and one of our lead photogs, is equipped with his “murse” (his male handbag, dare we say man purse?) that truly is like the Tardis – bigger on the inside. We have items that come in handy for the couple and their wedding party and our camera bags weigh in at around 40 lbs each. So, we spend a fair bit of time working out in the off season!
Lighting and weather conditions change frequently so we are always prepared to ensure our couples get the photos they imagined. While we always look polished and presentable we do so in a manner that affords us the ability to cover rough terrain. We sport sensible, waterproof and off road worthy foot gear so we don’t miss a beat.
Are you looking for just the right Washington wedding venue? We know lots of vendors and have a preferred vendor list on our website. We would be happy to meet for a consultation to review your wedding plans and help you get a jump start to your big day.
As Seattle area wedding photographers we get to visit amazing wedding venues in Washington and beyond. Wedding venues that offer a mix of outdoor and indoor spaces are the most flexible for couples – and they offer the most diverse backdrop for your wedding day photos. Kalley and Eric were married at Green Gates at Flowing Lake in Snohomish, Washington.
This venue has a fantastic open bluff that overlooks the Cascade Mountain Range and shoreline. The reception was held in the open air covered barn structure that, once night falls, literally glows with rustic romantic twinkly lights.
At every turn the venue offers great photo opportunities. The owners have put a lot of thought into making sure that there are many vantage points for wedding pictures. We were even given help in hoisting Kalley’s dress up for just the perfect setting.
The event went off without a hitch. We coordinated our photo schedule with the couple’s wedding planner Jennifer of Elements NW Events and Weddings so we were all on the same page for the days’ anticipated events. The wedding details were rustic and romantic. The tablescapes included dahlias and a mix of in season flowers set atop marvelously rustic tree platters.
Looking for a different twist on your wedding cake? Kalley and Eric have a love of brownies so they opted for a tower of brownies with all the fixin’s on the side. There was also a decadent candy buffet that the adults frequented more than the children.
Congratulations to Kalley and Eric! We absolutely loved your wedding and are so glad we could be part of the day.
