Kelli & Cody | Wedding Photos | Prosser, WA

We had the fortune or shooting this fantastic couple for both their engagement (in Seattle) and their wedding — in a much more rural setting in Prosser, Washington. The venue was a private back yard, and it was perfect!

These two have such fun together. They make an impression by always being themselves.

Sure, it was hot — it was summer in the center of the state — but they made the most of it and had a blast!

Ashleigh & Rodney Wedding Trailer | American Homestead on Chinook Pass

It can be painful to make a wedding trailer.

Let me explain: we had so much amazing footage from Ashleigh & Rodney’s wedding that distilling it into a 3-minute movie means stellar shots sometimes go unused.

This was our first time shooting at American Homestead on Chinook Pass, and we already hope we get to go back. There are loads of shooting opportunities with the open fields and aspen trees around. And D&Z Events did their usual stunning decoration work, providing us many detail shots.

But what really shined at their wedding was the bride and groom. Sure, the ceremony had 30 MPH winds, but you wouldn’t know it when watching Ashleigh and Rodney in the ceremony; when this couple looked into each others’ eyes at the altar, everyone knew this marriage was built to last.

June Newborn Session

Even though wedding season has hit full force,  we love babies, so we are trying to increase the number of newborn and baby sessions that we do. A few weeks ago we got to do a session with this handsome little guy when he was just 10 days old. He came out a bit early, but you’d never know it. Such a happy (and hungry) little guy! Who says newborns don’t smile?

Justine & Chris’ Wedding | Bethel Spanish Assembly of God | Othello, WA

After dating for five years, it was time.

A foggy, frosty winter day wouldn’t be enough to spoil Justine & Chris’ day, where loads of guests came to wish them well. Their sparkler sendoff was more treacherous than most weddings: freezing fog had iced the ground. But these athletes made it to their hot rod sendoff unscathed.

And a shout out to D&Z Events, who did their usual amazing job transforming a church cafeteria into a wedding reception area fit for a royal wedding!

Kelli & Cody’s Engagement | UW Arboretum, Pioneer Square | Seattle, WA

We began their shoot at the University of Washington’s Arboretum. One of the Arboretum’s designers gave Ryan a private tour of the grounds before the shoot — it was helpful to learn about the less-traveled spots.

Then we headed to Seattle’s Pioneer Square for dusk…and Pioneer Square delivered! It wasn’t too busy (the Mariners were playing, but it was only the bottom of the 3rd). We found a beautifully-lit alley  that we’d shoot in any day! (We had to remove some trash cans in our editing process, but it was well worth it.)

We’re enamored with what they gave us to work with, and we can’t wait to shoot Kelli & Cody’s wedding, coming up here soon!

Cherami & Scott’s Wedding | Christ the King | Richland, WA

Cherami & Scott met in Australia, as Cherami obeyed the travel bug. They hit it off immediately, and both knew they’d be married one day.

They didn’t have to wait long. We’ve been so blessed to shoot Cherami’s three sibling’s weddings, so we knew going in that this would be an awesome day. It was equal parts solemn and entertaining — a dignified blowout!

Their small wedding at Christ the King in Richland was followed by a reception-for-the-ages at her parents’ house. Lightning conspired against them, but they couldn’t care less. Guests danced in the rain as only their friends and family can.

We love them and their family, and we’re bummed their out of siblings to get married! Now onto the grandkids…right?

Shelby & Chris’ Wedding | Camp Dudley | Naches, WA

Not every wedding goes according to plan. OK, almost none do. But construction on the only road into YMCA’s Camp Dudley caused hours of delays! Instead of panicking, people just decorated more!

Who knew a YMCA camp could make such a stunning wedding venue? The ceremony had a beautiful lake as the backdrop, there was plenty of room for guests to roam and socialize, and Shelby & Chris took advantage of the kayaks at sunset. Seriously — a bride with a cute umbrella during a stunning sunset? Love it.

Molly & Dennis’ Engagement | The Parkway | Richland, WA

Shooting engagement photos really helps you get to know a couple — Molly and Dennis showed us their fortitude battling the frigid Tri-City temperatures!

Seriously. It was cold. *Really* cold with the wind chill. We shooters wore huge jackets, hats, gloves, etc. But Molly was such a trooper — she wore a dress and open-toed shoes! (We hope she didn’t suffer any symptoms of frostbite!)

We did have fun though. From a winery to the Parkway to the Richland Players theater, Molly & Dennis proved they were easy-going and amiable, making the best of the cold day.

Amaris & Alex’s Wedding | Spanish Assembly of God | Othello, WA

We had the pleasure of shooting Amaris & Alex’s engagement photos, which also afforded us the opportunity to get some shots of them to include in their highlight movie. Baseball is a huge part of their lives, so it was super-cute to film them at a Tri-City Dust Devil’s game at Gesa Stadium in Pasco.

When Amaris told us the reception would be in a gym, we were nervous that it wouldn’t look enough like a wedding. We were *floored* by the decorating by D&Z Events — we’d never seen such a transformation! It ended up being one of the best-looking venues we’ve filmed.

We’re excited to finally share them with you!

Blanca & Tom’s Engagement | Howard Amon Park | Richland, WA

Now this couple has no problems smiling. They are truly giddy with each other. And we love that they enjoy goofing around (it makes for great photos!).

We took great advantage of the saturated fall colors, which suited them well: he played the guitar to her on a bench, and the autumn colors couldn’t have complemented them better.

We can’t wait for their 2014 wedding!
