Millar Engagement Session

Mount Rainier engagement

Travis and Sam are avid hikers and rock climbers, so we couldn’t resist whisking them off to Mount Rainier for their engagement session. We wanted to capture them looking their best while also showing a glimpse of the natural beauty that they often surround themselves with. We are so excited for their wedding this fall and we’re […]

Palmer Wedding

Christian wedding

Reid and Jessica’s love story is so unlikely that we doubt even the Hallmark Channel would use it as a plot for a daytime movie – which makes it all the more wonderful. Picture it: two girls meet at summer camp and become fast friends. They are bridesmaids in each other’s weddings and they grow up to have children […]

Holt Engagement Session

Seattle Center engagement

Elliot proposed to Erin in the central courtyard of the Pacific Science Center so we weren’t surprised when they suggested Seattle Center as the location for their engagement session. The two of them were adorably affectionate the entire time and we were extraordinarily lucky with the crowds – despite a rare break from our dreary PNW weather, Seattle […]

Tupper Wedding

Rustic barn wedding

From the moment we met Trevor and Jaimee, we knew that we were going to enjoy photographing their wedding. Trevor had all of these grand ideas for an amazing celebration and neither of them was interested in sweating the small details at the expense of having fun. Their wedding absolutely delivered! When we arrived at […]

Kot Engagement Session

Point Defiance engagement

Patrick and Brianna were nervous about their engagement session, but they didn’t need to be – they were naturals from the very beginning. We explored many areas of Point Defiance Park in Tacoma, WA and the only challenge was trying to keep other park guests out of the pictures. On a beautiful February day like this, people were absolutely everywhere, […]

Palmer Engagement Session

Saint Martin's engagement

Rarely have we met another couple who so perfectly mirrors our own personalities. Luke and Reid seem like long-lost friends and it wouldn’t be hard to imagine that Melissa and Jessica were sisters, such is the strength of the similarities. Even though neither of them attended Saint Martin’s University, we thought it would be a […]

2016 Year in Review

2016 Review

We took a lot of pictures in 2016 – perhaps more than ever. We had a great time capturing memories with our cameras, from baptisms to weddings to foggy family hikes. One of the biggest highlights was participating in a year-long photography challenge. We had a new task each week and it encouraged us to stay creative […]

Anderson Wedding

Winter wedding

We met Sean and Teila back in 2015 at Jason and McKenzie’s wedding – he was a groomsman and she was a bridesmaid. Sean ended up catching the garter that day, which (according to tradition) meant that he would be the next to marry, so it was a good thing that he and Teila had […]

Holiday Gift Ideas

With various holidays just around the corner, we are sharing some inexpensive photography-related gift idea for you or the people in your life. We buy a lot of our gear from B&H Photo because it has the largest selection, doesn’t charge sales tax, and they offer free shipping for most items. Sandisk Memory Cards We think it’s […]
