Happy Holidays 2006

Now that our official 2006 holiday card has hit the streets, we're ready to unveil it online. We've received so many great compliments already (thank you). I only hope we can live up to expectations next year! Luckily, Bailey has proven herself to be a very cooperative participant. This year we had a little help from a smudge of doggie toothpaste on her nose. Usually I find all her post-treat lip-smacking annoying, but in this case the predictable licks came in handy.

Happy holidays to all of you. We wish you the best for the new year!

Lindsey and Tim in Puyallup

Congrats to our latest clients, Lindsey and Tim, who were married Dec. 8 at the Liberty Theater in Puyallup. They were the first couple we've seen who really used the theater to its full potential, kicking off the ceremony with a montage of movie love scenes. It was fun to see all of their guests watching the screen as if they'd just come there for a night of Hollywood-style entertainment. Of course, the feature presentation (their wedding itself) proved to be much more exciting.

Because Christmas is approaching, the Liberty is decked out in its full holiday decor. This added a lot of sparkle to the already-cool stage lights and allowed us to capture this awesome shot of Tim and Lindsey during their first dance as a married couple.

Reluctant Reindeer

One of the downsides of being an exceptionally well-behaved dog owned by photographers is that you get subjected to the annual holiday card photo session. We took this shot after a big snow storm hit the Northwest on Nov. 28, pushing us past the amount of precipitation needed to make it the wettest month ever on record. This photo came in as a close second for our card but didn't quite make the cut. Happy Holidays!

Nikki & Joey in Seattle

We recently photographed the wedding of Nikki and Joey at First Convenant Church in downtown Seattle. We are so impressed with the design of the building. This photo was taken looking through the stained glass doors at the back of the sanctuary. Congratulations to Nikki and Joey! We got some really stunning photos in the church especially and can't wait to share them with you.

Junko & Ben in Olympia

We just photographed a really interesting wedding in Olympia — this is one of the portraits we took of Ben and Junko shortly before the ceremony.

The wedding was held at Ben's family church and was officiated by his dad, one of the church's pastors. They were a bit concerned about how the photos would turn out because they felt the church was not very photogenic. While that may have been true, we were still able to find and artistically utilize several interesting features.

Junko and her family are from Japan so the ceremony was bilingual. The volley between the pastor and translator gave the event an interesting and unusual flavor that we enjoyed.
Our congrats to the newlyweds!
