Colleen & Ivan’s Wedding | Pasco, WA

As always, the flowers from Simplified Celebrations were outstanding. We always love it when they are the selected florists: we know we’ll have plenty of great flower shots.

The day was strikingly hot! It may have been at a house right along the Columbia River, but that didn’t provide much in the way of cooling. The lighting was the most challenging we’ve had in years: there was little to no shade throughout the day. But we got some great smiles out of Colleen, and the bridal party was a lot of fun!

Alex & Jeff’s Wedding | Running T Ranch | Dayton, WA

Alex & Jeff are such a cool couple — you can tell they’re confident in life and their relationship. They made the most of their day, laughing, drinking, and enjoying their friends and family.

The Running T Ranch in Dayton, WA is an awesome place to get hitched. Guests can sack out in tents at night if they like. The “barn” is a fantastic place for the reception, boasting great lighting and plenty of space for the average wedding.

One of our favorite moments was having them outside the barn just after sunset — we got a great aerial shot of them dancing with each other!

Jennifer & Chris’ Wedding | Terra Blanca Winery | Benton City, WA

There was no shortage of smiles at Jennifer & Chris’ wedding. This sweet pair enjoyed every second of their day!

We love shooting at Terra Blanca: there are loads of different looks within walking distance. (Not having to drive to different locations saves time and provides a more relaxed atmosphere.) We took advantage of the scenery, hitting the wine barrel caves, the vineyards, and even the sagebrush. Yeah, weeds can look good, too!

We’re so thankful when we get to shoot with such playful, cheerful people. Congrats to Jennifer & Chris!

Angie & Brandon’s Wedding | The Whitehouse | Coeur d’Alene, ID

Angie & Brandon are one of those couples you know will succeed in marriage. They’ll be the ones winning the “anniversary dances” decades down the road. They love to have fun together, and it shows. They’re huge swing dancers, and they’re amazing! You have to see the movie to check out their moves. The local roller rink, Rollerena Skating Center, let us take some shots after they closed — it was so cool! We also got some fun engagement footage at some fields and a secret local winery.

On the day of the wedding, the guys all hung out at Triple Play, riding go karts and playing mini golf. The girls spent time together getting ready at the Blackwell Hotel in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Then it was across the street to The Whitehouse for a perfect outdoor wedding.

They broke out the glow sticks, and along with the live band, the party was on!

Shawna & Liem | Wedding Photos | Clover Island | Kennewick, WA

OK we admit it: taking photos of someone with such stunning eyes and a natural smile makes our jobs easier. And having a couple so obviously relaxed and in love makes our job even less stressful.

Shawna & Liem had a beautiful ceremony at the Clover Island lighthouse in Kennewick. A good indicator that this couple is well-loved: there were many, many people who wanted their photos taken with them.

The Clover Island Inn provided the reception (and the prime rib was excellent!). Platinum Entertainment provided outstanding DJ services as usual, and Simplified Celebrations did those amazing flowers you see in our photos — see their wedding page to check out how they match her eyes!

As the reception began, firetrucks arrived! Fortunately it was a false alarm. So what does a photographer do? Take advantage! She donned a firefighter hat and posed on the truck with Liem. So stinkin’ cute. Love this couple!

Cherami & Scott | Wedding Movie | Richland, WA

Cherami & Scott met when she traveled to Australia, so their travel-themed wedding reception was perfect. Castle Event Catering helped decorate, and it had a perfectly understated feel about it, perfectly suited for this couple.

We started off filming a month before the wedding as they hung out in Leavenworth. (You’ll see how fun this couple is when they visit the hat shop!) They’d first met camping in Australia — camping is a big deal for them. So we shot some fun footage of them camping and cooking; they shared some food with us, and it was awesome.

They held a small ceremony at Richland’s Christ the King church. They shared the vows passed down by their families…it was so sweet. The next day they had their reception at her parents’ house, filled with people from all over the world.

We’re so happy to have new friends, Cherami & Scott — we’ll go camping with you anytime!

Jodie & Robert | Wedding Movie | Georgetown Ballroom, Seattle

Can we just say we love shooting Seattle weddings? Jodie & Robert chose the Georgetown Ballroom for the wedding, and it was fantastic. It’s not a huge venue, but there’s plenty of room for a moderately-sized ceremony and reception. And even though the day had some stressful elements, Jodie & Robert were quintessential newlyweds, overjoyed to be getting married.

What’s great about urban weddings is that even though you don’t get to shoot in grassy parks, there are plenty of opportunities provided by a simple abandoned warehouse: a brightly-painted teal door can make a stunning backdrop!

Jodie and Robert added their unique touch to the day. Cupcakes supplanted the traditional wedding cake. The ravenous kids clamored over the candy falling from the piñata. They exited to people shaking maracas! What a fun couple — enjoy their movie!

Tara & Nick | Wedding Photos | Kennewick First Methodist | Red Lion Hotel | Kennewick, WA

Tara and Nick are a genuinely sweet couple. Tara began the day getting ready at her parents’ beautiful home on the Canyon Lakes golf course. After a short send-off ceremony with her family, everyone headed to Kennewick First Methodist for their beautiful ceremony. Sticking with tradition, Nick first saw Tara as she walked down the aisle.

The couple surprised everyone with a belly dancer at the reception, held at the Pasco Red Lion. The crowd loved it! The dancing was unique and some of the most enjoyable we’d seen.

We’re so glad they chose us to capture their day!

Robin & Justin | Engagement Photos | Wenatchee

When a storm approachers, take advantage!

Robin & Justin are a couple of ambitious characters. (They’ll get married after she’s taken the bar exam!) They’re both super-sweet together. They joke around, laugh, and genuinely enjoy each other.

We weren’t sure if we’d get poured on by Ma Nature while we were in Wenatchee, but we got lucky and only had a few sprinkles. They were tons of fun to work with, and they were up for just about anything. (Yeah, she really got on the front of the bike and rode along.)

They’ll be getting married sometime around August 2014, and we couldn’t be happier to be shooting their wedding photos and movies!

Courtney & Troy’s Wedding Trailer | Tri-Cities, WA

Paddle boarding? Go-karts? Talk about a fun couple! We got to film them on Lake Chelan hanging out, throwing footballs, and getting on the water.

And of course they had a wedding. Faith Assembly in Pasco provided plenty of room to work with (that church is huge!). Then off via limo to Chiawana Park where we got in some aerial shots of the bridal party. Then off to Three Rivers Convention Center in Kennewick, where they always do a great job with events; weddings are no exception.

Courtney & Troy are truly a gracious couple. You don’t have to spend much time with them to know that they are giving, loving people. We’re so thankful to have shot their wedding!
