Terra Blanca weddings remain among our favorites: this Benton City venue boasts loads of greenery with many looks in a relatively small area. So it worked fine for Kim and Nolan to have us for just 7 hours since they weren't moving to a new location for the reception or photos. Here's a case where opposites attract: while Nolan is reserved, Kim is whimsical and spirited. And we love their dichotomy. Nolan was Mr. Cool, and Kim sang to the camera!
We had the fortune or shooting this fantastic couple for both their engagement (in Seattle) and their wedding — their wedding was 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. They're both so easy-going and relaxed, it made their portraits a joy to shoot. The family's house in Prosser was a great location for their day: the surrounding vineyards provided some great photo opportunities.
Sure, it was hot — it was summer in the center of the state — but they made the most of it and had a blast! We are excited for this Seattle couple and their new lives together.
It was fun to meet these two by taking them to a winery where we have exclusive rights to photograph. (Sorry, can't tell you where!) They were quite happy to be together, and asking them to kiss wasn't a chore. Then it was off to take advantage of a train that hasn't moved in years, and then on to Howard Amon Park in Richland. Loved the light!
We're excited to shoot their wedding in 2014!
Here's a fun couple finding new life with each other. Andrea & Jerald are getting married at Bookwalter Winery in Richland, WA, so we got to shoot some engagement photos with them and their kids at the winery. They had lots of fun ideas — great signs and poses. The three kids, Lawrence, Joanna, and Tyler, were good sports, too! We're looking forward to shooting their wedding on June 21st of this year!
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!
The day began with a bit of stress — At St. Joe's in Kennewick, the wedding before Kevyn & Eddie's looked like it was running an hour late! But the priests did well to move things along, and everything else went according to plan. The extra time provided us more photo opportunities, so we didn't complain. Terra Blanca, as always, provided a multitude of different looks for photos. The Benton City vineyard has stunning views and somehow manages to avoid the worst of the Tri-City winds. Kevyn & Eddie had a gorgeous getaway car, and gave us loads to work with at sunset. So fun!
We are so excited to be shooting the wedding of the sister of one of our former brides. Brianne and Justin were such a great couple with great smiles, we got super lucky with the weather in early March and had a wonderful time during their engagement session at a vineyard near Benton City!
We've been fortunate to work with Hedges Family Estate on several occasions. Located in Benton City, they're a mid-sized wine maker in Washington State. This promo video was made for them to show at wine conferences and to buyers throughout the world.
We're excited to be shooting this cute couple's wedding along the Columbia river next year! We made time for an engagement shoot with them at a secret winery in Benton City, then raced to an old train and a cornfield in Richland to take advantage of sunset.
Kalah & Levi met in the middle — between his work in Idaho and hers in Oregon, we're thankful they found the middle ground of the Tri-Cities. He's an electrical lineman, and he'd brought his tools — so naturally they made use of them! What a charming, unassuming couple. Just a minute with them and you can tell that they're well-suited together. We wish them well for their wedding in Boise next June!
