With all the fall activities in full swing and the fall portrait season just about over, I may finally get a minute to get caught up with all the blogging. Here’s one of my faves from a wedding we recently shot. A hot couple, an amazing location and a sweet wedding full of heart. Will be posting the full blog posts very soon. Also in the works is our new website and blog. I’m very excited for the launch and will be announcing more about it in the next few weeks. Stay tuned for more.

Kevin + Jenny: A beautiful Pacific Northwest summer wedding.

August 13, 2009

We knew that Kevin and Jenny would hold a special place in our hearts, the moment we booked their wedding. Both of them are such warm, fun loving, bighearted, and spontaneous people, that we automatically knew that their wedding would be a blast to photograph. And we were right! They had the most beautiful outdoor summer wedding.

Kevin really went  all out to surprise his beautiful bride, Jenny.  How’s this for fun? Not only did Kevin and his groomsmen prepare a cool retro song and dance number to serenade Jenny with at the reception, he also planned an elaborate surprise wheel-of-fortune like game where all their bridal party were involved in revealing the surprise honeymoon destination. Finally, he whisked his bride away to the airport a few hours after the wedding to go on their honeymoon to Aruba!

One of the big things that stood out to us during Kevin and Jenny’s wedding was the genuine love their friends and family had from them.  During the wedding toast, each person spoke about their big hearts and how caring and thoughtful they are with their friends and family. Kevin and Jenny extended that same warmth to us as well, making us feel like we’re old friends. I don’t know how we are so blessed to get such wonderful people to work for. Thank you Kevin and Jenny for such great memories from your wedding day.  It was truly an honor getting to know you and your amazing group of friends, Love, Joe & Toni.

Special thanks to our good friend and premier Northwest DJ and event planner, JD Fields of  Catch the Beat Event Planners for providing  one of the best and most creative wedding reception and entertainment we’ve seen.

Naomi & Eddy are married!

June 3, 2009

More often then not, one will rise in the morning to overcast skies lingering like a canopy over  the Pacific Northwest.  As you open your front door, typically you are greeted by a soaked through morning paper that has spent it’s morning in a genesis rain storm, only to be consoled by your hot cup of coffee in hand.

But, like a wedding  gift  hand wrapped from Mother Nature herself, that day would not be today. In fact, the morning of  Naomi Case’s  (hours away from becoming Naomi Polansky) wedding day would be the furthest weather day north of typical, today the weather would be stunning!  I could  have sworn we were somewhere in the magnificent English countryside. Naomi & Eddy couldn’t have asked for a better day to celebrate the 1st day of their lives forever.

Since our bride wanted us to emphasize the romance and candid moments throughout their day, we decided that the best approach was to shoot from our heart. Something that wasn’t all that hard to do since the intense love and connection that Naomi & Eddy had for each other was obvious to everyone around them.   All we had to do was step back and watch the scenes unfold before us and capture those moments.

Here are a few favorite shots taken shortly after she got dressed.

The Whispering Firs Bed & Breakfast had these rustic decor around that we used to take photos of her shoes.

Naomi loves to laugh and I don’t think I’ve ever had a bride laugh and giggle and smile as much as she did…Her joy was contagious!

The bed & breakfast’s owner (a hunter) shot & killed this 1,000+ lb. bear on an Alaskan hunting trip. They stuffed it and had it displayed inside the Bed & Breakfast. The bride requested a shot with her new husband and the bear.
