Kayla+Jim | TPC Snoqualmie Ridge Wedding


Kayla and Jim are both beautiful, kind, and just plain FUN. It was maybe the most gorgeous day of the year with a lovely church ceremony, a quick ride on a trolley over to the local saloon (with all 21 members of the bridal party!), and the most stunning mountain views at TPC at Snoqualmie Ridge. The reception details were all handmade and it was truly a family affair with some of the most touching toasts we've ever heard. K+J, thank you for bringing us along for the ride (literally?).

Carrie+Phil | Downtown Wedding

c_p_wed-0

Carrie and Phil had a truly unique vision for the design of their wedding and the more they told us their plans, the more excited we were to see it all come together!

The ceremony was a true winter wonderland with a line of trees lit up at the front of the alter inside of the beautiful, modern Axis Pioneer Square. Artwork by Justin Kane Elder adorned the brick walls. Stunning orange floral arrangements were artfully placed around the reception area, down the candle-lit aisle, and wrapped around metal sphere chandeliers. Ruckus Deluxe, a band from Canada, played fun covers that had everyone dancing. There were so many amazing elements it’s hard to list them all! It was just such beautiful and festive day and we loved capturing it! Congrats C+P!//Josh+Ali Read more…

Christina+Matt | Suncadia Resort Wedding

c_m_titleIt all started a few winters ago with an LL Bean Ad *cough* I mean engagement session with honest-to-goodness high-school sweethearts. Getting stuck in the snow. Bailing people out in the freezing cold. Rubbing our mittens together in a big truck and getting stuck ourselves, in that big truck. More getting stuck. More snow falling down. Cold, red noses. Finally, the truck keys getting locked in the car and spending more time in our small (earlier abandoned) Kia after hours trekking around in the cold taking pictures. Yes. It was an adventure. Couples like this one are why we do this and why we love it. We get to know you. And the morning of the wedding when I walk in to see the bride in her little slippers and her hair in the process of being done, I’m excited. I can’t wait to see the dress she chose, the way the ceremony will look. I can’t wait to document it all the best way I can, not only because it’s my job, but because I care on a personal level.

I could use a lot of adjectives to explain Christina and Matt’s wedding…but instead I hope you can really experience the day through these photos, and through this incredible video by Turning Leaf Productions. Christina and Matt, we wish you a life filled with adventure and love! //Text: Ali, Images: Ali and Sean

(*On a side note, Christina’s sister, Sarah, is not only the nicest person you’ll probably ever meet, but she is an extremely talented hair-stylist/wizard. )

Caroline + Marc | Steilacoom Town Hall Wedding


Ahhhh Caroline+Marc. We've already shown you their ridiculous-adorable engagement session in Volunteer Park and teased a couple ceremony photos (in December!? Man, we suck at blogging), so I suppose now's a better time than any to drop the whole celebration on you.

This day was full of so many unique details and events that we've just never seen before. From the sarcastic, gamer-friendly programs to story games on every table during the reception to a show-stopping performance of the game/improv/show/activity "Sea Dracula", these lovebirds absolutely rocked the socks off everyone in attendance.

Oh, and they're so stinkin' cute together. Her smile. The way he can't stop looking at her. Get out of here, you guys.

What We Shoot

What-We-Shoot

We are primarily wedding photographers, but at the end of the day we are just photographers. We love to shoot people doing things. Whether that be a bride’s father crying as she walks down the aisle, a drummer flinging his dreads around onstage, or a family laughing on their couch at home; we shoot moments. More accurately, we capture the  moments between moments.

Our style is modern, timeless and fresh. We are not trend-followers. We also won’t deliver dry, boring, pose-y photos. To us, it’s all about capturing the mood of the day and the awesome people in it as honestly and artistically as we can.

We believe you should have a wedding that mirrors who you are as a couple (not what others tell you it should look like). Our team is also highly in support of “offbeat” and “non-traditional” weddings and LGBT couples and marriages.We are, and always have been, an accepting and inclusive business.

Working With Your Spouse | Newlywed Post

We aren’t really experts and wouldn’t claim to be, but from what we can tell, working with your spouse isn’t for everyone. In the wedding photography biz, we know of many his-and-her, his-and-his, and her-and-her teams. Surely each couple works together a bit differently, and the dynamic is not the same for everyone. We have had a lot of clients tell us they would go nuts working together…and yeah, that makes some sense.

We are coming up on our busiest summer yet (exciting!) and we are lucky enough to be wrapping up this season with some great engagement sessions and special projects. Once summer time rolls around, we will be working together even more frequently while juggling travel, shooting for long days, editing a heavy load, shipping/packaging materials, and so on. Here are the challenges as we’ve seen them, when it comes to working with your spouse, and our top 10 suggestions for overcoming them.

What We Shoot | JayLee M.O.

Short answer…anything. Pretty much. We use cameras, not guns (though, we are both a pretty good shot). We are mainly wedding+engagement photographers, but people ask us pretty often what we shoot. So, here’s a random sampling of photos in one blog post, though it doesn’t mean we’re not missing something. We have shot weddings, engagements, anniversary sessions, vow-renewals, trash-the-dress, fashion/models, maternity, babies, kids, seniors, events, bands/shows, corporate, boudoir, landscapes/places, pets, vendor products, styled shoots, and our personal life. Seriously, what do you need photographed? We will do it. Please say it’s somewhere far away or something terribly cool? Or close by and semi-cool is fine, too.

The Keller Family | Holiday Cheer | Part 1

It’s that time in January where most everyone has taken down their Christmas trees (sad), so we are inserting a little leftover holiday cheer into the blog today! Frankly, we love sessions like this one. We did take some lovely Christmas card photos, but we didn’t stop there! This was a true lifestyle shoot that included hanging out with the Keller family at their beautiful home, wandering off to a couple of cool locations (a barn, a field), incorporating cute props, and then baking some cookies. We really try to encourage clients to think outside the box and apply more personality to their photos, whether it be for a family shoot or engagement session. As you will see, Jenny has a natural eye for styling and happens to be a very talented baker, so hanging out at home and baking with her kids was a special activity to document. Putting a little thought into photos can make all the difference visually, but what really makes this session fantastic is how playful this family was and how willing they were to interact with one another. When you consider ideas for your lifestyle shoot, try to think of activities you enjoy with your spouse, fiancé, or family, and how you can make that a part of your shoot.

That said, we truly had a great day with the beautiful Keller family (and those kids really couldn’t get any cuter or sweeter). We were also fortunate to meet Scout (the dog) and the elves on the shelf (don’t you love them?). Thanks for the tasty cookies, inviting us into your home, and trusting us to not only take your holiday photos but also document some memories. Did we mention we loved the cookies? num.num.num.

Be sure to check back for Part II to see some pretty impressive cookie decorations. // Josh + Ali
