Jeremy + Alexandra

Jeremy + Alexandra

I really don't know if I have words for this one. 

These two are so special to us. We met them exactly a year ago, and between dinner dates, their awesome engagement session, and lots of Instagram photos, they felt like old friends by the time their wedding day rolled around. 

Here's just a slice of their wedding day. Jeremy and Alexandra, thank you, thank you, thank you. We love you so.

Daron + Sarah

Daron + Sarah

Sarah and Daron's day was full of the things we love most: quiet mornings, laughter-filled ceremonies, the way Daron's breath caught when he saw Sarah for the first time, secret wedding vows before the ceremony, and lots of whiskey.

Oh yes, and dancing the Horah. Because who doesn't love a good Horah?

Rob + Briana

Rob + Briana

On Valentine's Day, Rob took out a full page ad in the Seattle Times and asked Briana to marry him. At first, she didn't realize the ad was for her. It didn't take long, however, before they were both crying. 

Briana, of course, said yes.

Their wedding day was chock-full of the same emotions (and more) as the day Rob proposed, as family and friends celebrated in lovely rural-style, sharing stories, drinks, BBQ, laughs, songs, tears, karaoke. (We even got to witness the King of Rock 'n Roll!)

Personal | Meet Grayson

We've been awfully quiet around here lately, and here's why!

Our sweet son, Grayson, was born in December and we have been enjoying a quiet winter getting to know him. But we're back behind the cameras now and looking forward to kicking off our wedding season in a few weeks! We're excited to start filling this space with amazing stories in the coming months. Stay tuned! 

Randy + Laura

Randy + Laura

A few years ago, Brandon and I tossed out our hourly wedding packages and began offering only all-day, start-to-finish coverage. We did it for two big reasons: we wanted to capture the unplanned moments of a wedding day, and we wanted our couples not to stress about time and money. 

And while we've never once regretted that decision, Randy and Laura's backyard wedding renewed our unabashed love for all day wedding coverage. 

If we had just shown up for hair and make up, we would have missed capturing their quiet morning eating Spudnuts and drinking coffee around the kitchen table. We would have been too rushed to catch the family cat walking all over the reception tables while the boys assembled the dance floor. We would have missed out on long, lovely conversations with their families. Perhaps Randy and Laura would have decided against three hours of unscheduled time after bridal party photos, instead feeling pressured to "maximize time" on their day. It would have broken our hearts to leave in the middle of the best damn dance party we've ever seen.

Carly + Glen | Engaged

Oh man, do we love engagement sessions.

So often, couples consider skipping their engagement session to save a little bit of money. But we love them - and believe in their importance - so much that we offer a complimentary engagement session as part of all of our wedding photography packages. Not only is it a chance to have some authentic, beautiful images taken, but they offer our couples an opportunity to see how we work during a session and allow them to feel 1,000% comfortable in front of the camera before their wedding day.

So, even though we're still wrapping our weddings from 2015, we're loving all of our recent fall engagement sessions with our 2016 couples.

Carly and Glen, we're so excited to celebrate alongside you next spring!
