Pilar and Matt: Engagement Portraits

It's that time of year again when we get really caught up in weddings, so it was refreshing to take a couple of hours to relax with our clients Pilar and Matt while taking their engagement portraits. We met up in Point Defiance, and really enjoyed introducing them to the park for the first time. We got lucky with an absolutely gorgeous day, and despite a minor delay in finding each other (we were detoured into the park because the main entrance was closed in preparation for the garden show), it all turned out wonderfully. Here is one of my favorites from our time on the beach with Mt. Rainier peeking out from the background.

Hannah and Mike in Tacoma

It's done! Our good friends Mike and Hannah have finally tied the knot. We had a great time at their wedding, balancing photography and partying with old friends, many of whom we hadn't seen for years.

In a nod towards Hannah's Japanese-American heritage and with the added benefit of introducing all of their out-of-state friends to the beauty of the Northwest, Mike and Hannah decided to have their wedding at the Japanese Pagoda in Point Defiance Park. The weather turned out to be absolutely perfect, the decorations were gorgeous, and much fun was had by all.
As part of their reception entertainment, I prepared a slideshow with their childhood and dating photos. It turned out great (am I allowed to say that myself?) and I got an almost embarrassing number of compliments on it during the wedding. I think it's safe to say that we'll soon be offering reception slideshows as a service to our clients!

With Hannah and Mike being such good friends and all, we couldn't pick just one photo to share. So here are a few that caught our eye, with many more to come later.

Congratulations Hannah and Mike!
