Twu Wuuuv

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.

Hey, we’re a great team and your photography rocks!

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.

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.”

Recently we have had a chance to shoot a couple of very interesting events, one was a fund raiser for the Bellevue Boys & Girls Club with a James Bond theme.  As part of that theme they had an ice bar set up featuring Pravda Vodka, it was very impressive.  The other event was for the Young Presidents Organization at the Triple Door Theater in Seattle.

We got to know Kristin and Jason at their engagement session and we attended their wedding rehearsal.  Both are really good ways to get to know our clients – and their families.  We could tell right away that the wedding was going to be a blast.

We were really moved by the efforts of this couple’s family and friends.  The reception was elegant and so much fun.  Everyone seemed to help out and the entire event was flawless.

Kristin is a girl’s softball coach so she hired her team to cater the reception which was hosted at the Orting Grange.  The girls did a phenomenal job and should really consider catering as a viable career.

The new couple, their parents and the wedding guests were all having fun.  We think the photos capture the spontaneity and good nature of this amazing couple.

It was our first shoot at the Orting Grange and we can’t wait to shoot another wedding there.  The lighting is beautiful and the hall offers an intimate setting for receptions with the perfect dance floor.
