Romantic, fresh, chic, and honest with a touch of fashion has become our signature style. We strive to embody your inner beauty and personality while enhancing it with an essence of elegance, ease, and simplicity.
Along with this approach, we believe that your photographic journey doesn't begin on your engagement session or wedding day. It started long before when you two met and knew you would spend the rest of your lives together. As we get to know your story, we take care to illustrate your story in a way thats unique to you.
We are based out of the Seattle area but love to travel nationally and internationally to shoot weddings and engagements. Feel free to inquire for specialized travel rates.
Our couples typically book anywhere between six months to one year before their big day. Because we take only a limited numbers of weddings each year, booking sooner ensures your wedding date will be available. If your wedding falls outside of this timeframe we'd love to work with you to see if we have your date available.
Absolutely! We highly recommend engagement sessions. We find that couples love the experience of taking these more casual photos before their wedding day. It's the perfect opportunity to have photos together outside of formal wedding attire within a more relaxed, controlled environment (and also a different backdrop/location). It gives you an opportunity to have magazine quality photos of yourselves in your fabulous outfits. Also, it provides a great time for us to connect with you two and understand your chemistry together which better enables us to document your wedding day in a way that's unique to you. It also helps to warm you up in front of the camera before the wedding day as youll know what to expect with the flow and posing tips. Another perk is its a great chance to utilize your makeup trials! Lastly, couples like to use photos from this session before and on the wedding day for things like save-the-dates, slideshows, guestbooks, posters, cards, and so on!
We highly recommend doing a first look and the majority of our couples have chosen this route as it is becoming the preferred approach. It is much more relaxed for all with more time to get beautiful controlled photos of yourselves as the wedding day can be fleeting. It allows you a quiet moment alone together to embrace and soak everything in without any distractions. It also allows you to mingle with your guests after the ceremony during cocktail hour since you have already finished taking your formal photos. Of course its perfectly fine if youd like the traditional route as well.
Ooh, we love props! They are the perfect way to personalize your photographs and add creative elements to tell your story. There are so many cute props out on the internet on sites like Etsy or Ebay. You can even scour Vintage or thrift stores.
Yes, we are more than happy to help guide our couples in drafting up their timeline to make the best use of the day photographically. This ensures getting enough coverage of formals to create a well rounded story along with your photojournalistic shots.
Yes! We love making new friends and meeting beforehand always breaks the ice and helps us to develop a more personal connection with our awesome couples. Youll also get a chance to view our album and print offerings. Of course there are some cases where its not possible to meet in person before the wedding day. Wed be happy to chat by phone or Skype thanks to technology!
We take care in making sure all your photographs will look beautiful for years to come by editing every single photo that's selected for final delivery. This typically takes about 8 weeks to complete. We also create an online gallery of all the highlights for you to share with all your friends and family.
Engagement sessions are much more casual than the wedding day by nature, very laid back and full of laughter. We are happy to hear even our most nervous couples telling us it was much more fun than they initially anticipated And when you're having fun in your natural state its transparent in the photos.
On the wedding day, we are mainly in documentary mode capturing the day and the little details as they naturally unfold. Its during the formals that we take the extra care and effort to help you look your best as it is a more controlled situation.
We strive to provide the best experience not only on the wedding day but from the very beginning. Weddings are a truly special, once in a lifetime event and we believe it should be treated as such. We value quality over and quantity and in order to give our lovely couples our full creative energy and utmost attention we take on a limited number of weddings per year.
